Why does this look like an N64 game?

I'm pretty sure the 3ds is more powerful than this. Why does this look like a crappy port of quest 64? I'm all for pokemon, but there really isn't an excuse for these graphics in 2013.

I agree. It's mostly because the 3DS is a terrible console. It's 2013 and we still don't have powerful consoles? Really? The screens aren't even HD. Even the iPhone is better than the 3DS.

I didn't know this game's graphics were polygonal!

Anyway, 3DS games never look as good in videos or screenshots as they do on the actual system, and there is an excuse for the graphics not to be perfect; it's GameFreak's first time making a 3D Pokemon game.

The Stadium games were developed by HAL, and Colosseum, XD, and Battle Revolution were developed by Genius Sonority. This is their first time doing 3D graphics themselves.

There was a thing at tge bottom of the screen that said something along the lines of "footage shown may not be in final product"

And the video was not in the system's native resolution, which mean screen size, that caused the video to be streched thus distorting the image.

And again the game is still in development.

The 3d makes fancier graphics than a retina screen. I really really hate the second screen though. You only look at one at a time, so why didn't they make one hd 3d screen?? I kills me cause most developers just use it for a damn stat display.. My god most of them see it as an obstacle to find something to do with it, every game thats not a "quick rub the stylus across the screen as fast as you can!"

That's the best use of it.

I hate having to pause the game to pull up my stats or view the inventory.

Having it on the bottom sceen is much more convenient.
