I sold my Pika XL to get the new one, the white interior just threw the whole console off. I'd really like to have the gold one, to sort of compliment my Zelda one, who knows, I may import one later just because. So, I'd go with a new style.
I already have the Pikachu 3DS XL and I plan on buying both the red and blue X&Y 3DS XL's. But I think the red X&Y 3DS XL is better if you want it to look cool, and Pikachu if you want it to look more noticeable and iconic.
