Kanto Pokedex New 3DS XL

Pokedex New 3DS XL

I was originally going to wait and see if either a pink New Nintendo 3DS XL or a limited edition that I actually like came out to upgrade, but then I found these awesome decals to turn a red 3DS XL into a Pokedex and realized that there was probably never going to be a 3DS design that is this awesome!

Initially I was hesitant to get an XL, and was hoping that the smaller New 3D would come out in the US so I could try them both out before buying. Being a female, I have limited pocket space and I can already barely fit the smaller 3DS in my pocket (small pockets are a scam to also sell us purses, I swear!) and I was afraid that games would look too blurry being stretched out on the bigger screen.

I’ve had my New Nintendo 3DS XL for about a week now, and I can honestly say, it’s difficult to go back to playing on the smaller screen. Games are noticeably blurrier, but I got used to it pretty quickly. The only time I really notice it is when I check the Streetpasses on the old one and then switch back to the new one (I kept my old launch 3DS, transferred everything to the new one, and put a new Mii on the old one to get extra Streetpasses).

So far, I haven’t really used the little analog nub, other than briefly in Majora’s Mask, so I can’t comment on how useful it really is.

The head tracking for the 3D effect works pretty well. Sometimes it can still get funky though if I am holding the 3DS at a weird angle, but it is still a big improvement. The 3D effects look better on the bigger screen as well.

This decal makes it the next best thing to an actual limited edition Kanto Pokedex 3DS. I don’t think that I will ever see an actual special edition 3DS that is as awesome as this!

I also made a felt case for it to keep it from getting scratched in my purse. I think my Pokeball 3DS pouch matches my Pokedex 3DS quite nicely.

I got the decal from argibi on etsy and the pattern to make the pouch from Otaku Crafts.

    Amazing skin, but looks like the color that you wanted is coming out on June, but in Japan along side with the lime green, http://www.siliconera.com/2016/05/11/lime-x-black-pink-x-white-new-3ds-xl-colors-releasing-japan-june-9/
