That's what we've been hoping for two generations now. You underestimate their laziness.
The DS was not capable of something like that.
The DS was more than capable and so is the 3DS. For some reason GF insists on sticking to oh-my-God-artistic-freedom sprites. Oh wait, I know the reason: cheaper production costs. Why bother if Pokemon still prints money and some fans actually prefer 2D waterfalls over 3D ones. Gameplaywise Pokemon just keeps on improving which is great. Graphicwise? It could be much better.
For the record, I'm sure they've made a system that can brush your teeth, clean your toilet, wash your face, and play video games on it at the same time; please don't think that they aren't capable of making 3D sprites.
