    Default Considering buying a 3DS, but have concerns.

    I haven't bought a Pokemon game since Pokemon Pearl (I currently have a DS Lite) and I want to get back into it, to do this I am hoping to buy a 3DS, Pokemon HG/SS and Pokemon B/W but I have some concerns:

    • My router has it's security set as WPA and I know my DS Lite couldn't connect to this can the 3DS?

    • Can the 3DS run these games?

    • If I use the 3DS to connect to my wifi and play HG/SS/B/W would this affect the online play?



    I appreciate any information,
    cheers

    If you're starting them for the first time, no.

    Just to expand on BCVM22's answer, unless the the DS games can take advantage of the DSi improved Wi-Fi capability they won't be compatible with WPA.

    This unfortunately means that none of the 4th gen Pokémon game will be able connect to your WPA Wi-Fi.

    Yeah the 3DS would be an uprade but it can not play GBA game's like the DS and DSlite.

    With b/w it will let you connect with many password formats, not so sure bout HG/SS and I know it won't do it with D/P
