With the eagerly awaited Pokemon X and Y released on the same as the 2DS, does Nintendo have a trick up their sleeve to boost the new handheld's sales?
I can only imagine that was their plan in the first place. Bit of a coincidence to be released on the same day as Pokémon X & Y I think...
Yeah. It really will not surprise me if this turns out to be the case. Would be an extremely smart move to take.

This is another one of those cases where the "experts" criticize Nintendo, and then get proven wrong. It happens at least once every 4-5 years.
Bundles with a Pokemon design would sell like crack. Nintendo wouldn't be able to keep them on the shelves. If they made like twenty different Pokemon designs for the 2DS and made some of them more rare than the others, people would buy these things like Beanie Babies.
They'll help each other out like a fine tag team.
I seriously want to see a full fledge Pokémon game on the WiiU!

"Can Nintendo boost 2DS sales using Pokémon X and Y?" Yes and "duh"! Is that a rhetorical question?
Pokemon is crack. I will be buying a 3DS just for X & Y....
2DS is the new virtua boy.
I'll bookmark this page for you for when it releases, and we'll see if you're right or not. My guess is 'not'.
You mean it's actually going to be popular? Virtua Boy was a flop and I think this will be also.
I think it will be popular, yes. I won't be buying one myself as I've already got a 3ds, and tbh this doesn't appeal to me, but I can see the market for it and who it will appeal to. It certainly won't be like the Virtua Boy, I'm confident of that.
