However, the game will be available for the original Nintendo DS. While 3DS owners can still play the game, this Pokémon won't have any fancy 3D effects. It looks like those who were hoping to see Pikachu's Thunderbolt in glorious, glasses-free 3D will have to wait another year or so.
The fact that this is the first numbered sequel in the main series of games is plenty interesting. Being the first to buck the trend, Pokémon Black and White 2 could see new approaches to the tried-and-true-but-ultimately-stale Pokémon style. That could also just be this writer's wishful thinking. At any rate, maybe this video of a talk we recently had with Nintendo's resident Pokémon expert could make up for the lack of 3D Bulbasaurs ... temporarily.
