I'd love a 3DS that looked like a old dual screen Game and Watch, like Donkey Kong II or something.
Game Over, Yeah!!

Unless I win the lottery, I won't be able to afford one. It's released one week after the Wii U's launch. Sucks really.

I have tryed to get my sister in law to get her son one of these for Xmas, he wants a blue 3DS, but this is just more specal (and he likes pokemon)

I do love the Charizard 3DS they released in japan, was hopeing that maybe they would do the same for Europe and America.
Maybe the same way as it is being distributed in japan. but america can get... say.... a Blastois one.
And then we get a chance of geting a Venusaur one.

Thanks for the votes everyone.

As I said before,I wouldn't mind getting this,but as I've already got a 3DS XL,that I'm already happy with,it isn't worth me getting it.

OH YEAH! OH YEAH OH YEAH!

I now have a reason to start Trading in my Old Games! After the several 10s of Games I don't play anymore, I might be able to make some Dough...

Regarding that it is being released in Game Stores though...

Buy a Japanese Charizard one and swap the innards with a UK one. :)

easier said than done, swapping it takes hours of perseverance and if you accidentally reconnect something wrong, you could spend ages trying to figure out what you did wrong and end up wrecking your 3ds

I was planning on getting an XL, then this was announced for a UK release so I thought 'yeah nice!' Then they announced the Charizard XL and I was ugh. Still that's in a Japanese lottery so the chances of me getting one is most remote indeed. Still looking forward to the Pikachu one, wonder if there's a certificate of authenticity or poster inside the box something nice like that.

Well, I've done several DSes, and although the 3DS is more complicated I'm sure it's not vastly harder. I've seen videos and it's just fiddly, that's all.

Yeah the Pika XL looks awesome, although it would be shameful to play it in public.
But the Charizard XL looks better again anyway.

didn't need more info, just seeing "pikachu" and "3DSXL" made my heart melt and flutter at the same time. But then I read about the charizard one! Can't wait for a UK price tag on this thing! :D:D:D
