Can the 3DS carts even hold 700+ 3D Pokemon models?!?!?

The Mystery Dungeon 3DS game didn't even have all the Pokemon! Serious question here!

Probably. It even has to hold all the animations for each move and Pokemon, the cities, the character models, and so on. That's a lot of data there. They have been working on this for a while now.

The carts actually have a surprising amount of storage on them. Also models don't take that much space up.

you have nabbed my attention. although i doubt anyone on the forum is qualified to answer this question. if anything though, the 3d models of everything else in the pokemon game is probably the bigger challenge.

The models aren't exactly super high res, most pokemon aren't texture heavy(1 colored pokemon wouldn't take much space), 3DS cartridge could hold quite a bit of information as well.

They can go from 2GB to 4GB to 8GB cartridges.

But keep in mind the more memory you want the more expensive those carts are going to be.

I'm going to say yes because they just announced the game which normally doesnt happen until most of the work is done. They wouldnt announce it if this was a possible problem.

The PokÚdex 3D Pro has around 680 or so, counting extra forms, and that's around 3000 blocks of data. Just to put that into perspective, the full game Animal Crossing: New Leaf is roughly 5000 blocks. Most 3DS games (AC:NL included) are >2GB, because that's the smallest amount a 3DS card can hold. However, there are 3DS cards that can hold more. For example, Resident Evil Revelations and Kid Icarus Uprising (iirc) are on 4GB cartridges, and are also too large to be downloaded on the eShop. I assume that this will be the case for the new Pokemon game, considering all the old models+all the new models+locations+characters+animations+game engine+everything else. My fingers are crossed for XY to be available from the eShop, because it would be extremely convenient for me.

I bet Mystery Dung was like a 2 or 4GB cart so they had to cut down on content to save $$$. X&Y will (hopefully) most likely use 8GB carts.
