Just curious, if you cant spend allowance, how'd you get previous pokemon games?Complaining? *looks around* I don't see anyone complaining. Except for Georgie Pie.I think it's ridiculous that people are complaining about XY being on the 3DS, it had to happen sooner or later (as a matter of fact, I was unhappy that 5th gen wasn't on the 3DS). The DS is dying, there's no reason to continue to support it. By that logic, 4th gen should've remained on the GBA because not as many people owned a DS. Besides, the 3DS could use more games, they've got a few good ones, but many of Nintendo's major franchises have yet to appear. And since Pokemon is a major handheld seller, it's only natural that they release one ASAP.
Anyway, if you don't have a 3DS, go out and get a job to earn one. This is likely the main reason the game was announced so early, to give people time to save up for one. There's no excuse not to make enough money in 6 or 7 months to be able to afford a 3DS and XY if you have a job, you can make that much alone in about a full week's worth of work (40 hours) at minimum wage.
EDIT:I was talking to Georgie Pie, but whatever.
Or see if you can do chores around the house and stuff during the Summer and save up, that's how I managed to get my Xbox 360 when I didn't have a job.
Even if I did to chores and earned money, I'm not allowed to spend a penny of the money I have, so $300 is just sitting in a box in my room.
And my parents say never to waste money.
And no, that is not my college fund. That's in the bank.
