This is a long one. Haven't been on this forum in like 5 years. Since then I've been in school and stuff like that and while I'm in the middle of a Sapphire play though I haven't played anything after Y. Summer is almost over, and if the price was right I was gonna do a 3DS playthrough of one of the new games. I'm really into trading and interacting with people online so I was gonna wait for the new Switch ones, but when I remembered this site I figured I'd ask here. So in short, is the online community active enough in the 3DS community to justify buying one of the games or should I wait for the Switch? Thanks!
The online Gen 6 community is still strong, and if you go on the game you will find a active GTS, Wonder trades, people to link trade with.
Gen 7 is very strong in terms of players online. Considering that it’s still the most recent Pokémon game people are still playing it. It’s quite worth it over waiting for SwSh.
