Just picked up a 3DS recently and was interested in picking this up...

Should I pick this up or play some of the earlier ones? I never had a DS or played any of the earlier ones since Gold

I say just pick this up. Alot has changed but the basic gameplay is still the same and the game explains things like you know nothing anyway so you should'nt have a problem.

Just pick this up and enjoy. Then decide if you want to experience the earlier generations and go back to play them.

I don't think that you would regret starting here. It is a great game overall and captures the feel of the originals in my opinion.

The only downside to it that I could see would be playing this and then going back to the DS games and finding some of the more polished things in X/Y (the GTS for example) being less polished in the earlier ones.

yeah that was my worried... I actually watched a review or two for each of the generations before making this topic and the consensus is that each pokemon game they improve and expand on certain things... so playing the old games may not be so great after playing X

Anyway thanks for the responses!
