I think I saw from a website posted awhile ago by another CAG about Pikachu with different outfits on his head? Was hoping for those

Crossing my fingers I'll be able to find someone who'd want to swap their blastoise or charizard plates for my HHD plates. Seems doubtful at best.

Was able to buy a Mew and Pikachu and passed on both. For the premium over the normal ones the material is this terrible feeling stuff and they didn't look that great.

XL plates? I'm guessing you mean N3DS cover plates. They keep coming out with new ones.... Just not in the US :/

The XL doesn't have cover plates. Cover plates are only for the regular model, not the XL model.

Yup, same here. The material looks like some kind of shiny velvet, not really my style.

Just realized that this was the not a XL version but its just the regular one. My mistake, lol. With that said how hard would be to get used the smaller screen coming from a XL?

I know these images are basically useless since they're not on scale but it at least gives an idea:

I went from an XL to a 2DS for a while and didn't have any issue and generally preferred the smaller overall size. Most of us probably hold the thing way too close to our faces anyway and the XL has always been just a bit too big for my tastes.  So it's preference like most things.

Does the white color get dirty easily? Anyone with a white 3ds have issues?

Finally went to preorder it for shipping last night to use some credit I have with Best Buy and...it's sold out.  Again.  Ugh.  I was going to do it two days ago and it was still up then but didn't have the time.  Hoping it will go back up soon...

Shows as 117326

I can take a pic of the receipt if you want as well.

----------------

Also if anyone wants either Mew or Pikachu, I can try and see if I can get my hands on them tomorrow. They only had three, 2 Mews (one which I bought) and one Pikachu. Just pay cost + shipping and I'll send them out.

Thanks--I actually found a Mew plush at a Gamestop I visited last night. The Pikachu plush didn't interest me very much, so I passed on it.

It's annoying the mew distribution event ends before this console releases, requiring an extra trip to gs

The white new 3ds just looks so good but I simply want one with plain white faceplates since I don't want to look like a 3rd grader while playing with my sophisticated 3d machine.

Nope it is North America compatible, it is from the UAE, so the American games and Eshop will work just like the metallic blue one they had. Here is a link to it:

I know importing isn't ever cheap and the solid white isn't offered here but that is a ton of money when you can get a new 3ds xl for $170 without much trouble.

I know it is not something I would do, but I was just giving another option for anyone who would want an all white option.

I appreciate the info and links to importing an all white one but cost is a big factor to me especially since it's something I have no need for and seeing how the NX will be coming out as well as the Sony VR headset (don't know if either will interest me just have to wait and see) nintendo I think will release an all white standard one here in the states sooner or later & if they are too foolish to do so then I definitely won't lose any sleep over it. It's just up to them if they want my $$$ or not. I'll never go out of my way to import something that should be here to begin with.

I just got an email from The Pokemon Company mentioning the bundle, or bundles as they put it, that are coming soon. I'm starting to think that there will be two separate game bundles. One for red and the other for blue.

The email states: "Check out the limited-edition New Nintendo 3ds bundles that come with Pokemon Red or Pokemon Blue pre-installed!"

A few key words bundles" and "or" as in we have to choose between the two.

I could be wrong but I wonder why they would word or this way otherwise. The preorder sites make it seem that you get both games.

Edit: the email was from the Pokemon Co. Not Nintendo.

I got the same email but I'm going to assume that whoever wrote the email made a mistake, since the box art is clearly both, every other piece of information so far including the stores selling them has indicated one bundle with both games, and if you click on the email link, then click "Check it out" on the bundle, it has almost the same language but:
