If you are only going to play Pokemon, just buy a 2DS. It is a lot cheaper and the 3D is awful in Pokemon anyways.

2DS is super cheap on Nintendo online store and the refurbished comes in like new.

If you like Pokemon, you might like Shin Megami Tensei IV; another turn-based RPG and a 3DS exclusive. One with a super interesting story, and demons instead of pokemon. A much darker game than Pokemon.

its your money, spend it however you like. the only way I could see it being a waste is if you never used the thing for anything. Even if its only one game you are still getting enjoyment out of it so in my book thats not a waste at all

Up until 3DS I never bought anything but Pokémon on Nintendo's handhelds, but with 3DS I tried a few different games. ALBW, SM3DL and ACNL were a nice change of pace and very enjoyable. Still, I find that Pokémon is the best this system has to offer.

I always buy Nintendo handhelds for the latest Pokemon games. Then my game library slowly expands over time, Becuase I start noticing games for the system that I'm willing to try. If you don't buy more games for it in the future, who cares. If you enjoy even one game for the system, it's worth it. My DS library is nothing but Pokemon games and Ace Attorney games, but I think the system was worth it regardless.

Go for it. You can definitely play enough pokemon to make it worth it

No but if you're just going for Pokemon I say get the classic 3ds probably like $50 on ebay by now.

No, its not a waste. With so many models available, it's easy to find a console for a steal.

I personally recommend the 2DS. It's comfortable, can be had for 80 dollars new and the slate form reminds me of the older Gameboy systems, which scream "pokemon" lol.

Plus, 3D in pokemon sounds awesome on paper, but it only shows during battles and causes a noticeable dip in frame rate.
