Pokemon X Emulator

Nintendo 3DS Emulator for Pokémon X & Y

Pokemon X Nintendo 3DS emulator “Gotta Catch ‘Em All” is a tag line that is quite famous among gamers especially those who are familiar with the Pokemon franchise. The latest pair of games in the Pokemon series is the Pokemon X & Y, actully the 6th generation of the Pokemon titles. In addition, Pokemon X & Y also mark the very first Nintendo 3DS exclusive Pokemon games that no lenger work on NDS.

While the new game shares the same basic game story, Pokemon X has new more unique and amazing features. For the very first time ever, the game can be viewed and played in full 3D. With 3D view, players can move more freely and the game appears more realistic.


Even the battles in Pokemon X emulator are animated in 3D so you can witness the fire shooting from Charizard’s mouth and see Pikachu unleashing his thunder wave attack in an amazing way. However, since physically biting or punching each other is not child-friendly, you still can’t see those acts in Pokemon X or Y version.

At the moment there is NO WORKING emulator for 3DS 【3D MODE】 Games. I will update this part as soon as a real emulator for 3DS is released.

Emu Development progress:

【DS MODE】 can be emulated using several well established emulators. DeSmuME, No$GBA, DasShiney, DuoS DSEMU

【Hardware Emu】 Pokemon cartridge format has been successfully copied and backups of the game can be payed from a blank flash card with most features like save games etc working, but no Internet support.

【3DS MODE】 - work in progress...

Don't be fooled by the fake sites offering you to download files as soon as you fill out surveys or pay for a download -- all they want is to make some $ from people like you filling out paid surveys and the files are all fake. Even if you think you have the emulator and all you are missing is the elusive BIOS file, know that you have been tricked. Youtube videos mostly are doctored so that the OP opens a supposed game file which in fact is a gameplay Video file and than he pretends to be playing the game...

And do not expect the first REAL 3DS emulator to come with no bugs and perfect graphic rendering straight from the start. That is another sign to easily spot the fakes - they all seem to work 100% perfect. Perfect graphics and sound and all the features supported = too good to be true.

Even DS emulators are not perfect and they have been arround for 10 years now!

Pokemon X 3D Game

Pokemon 3DS gameplay Review

Any Pokemon game enthusiast can tell you exactly how the basic story in any Pokemon X game goes. You usually begin as a girl or boy living in a small town and your adventure begins once you select your first Pokemon from the local Professor. Of course, as a hero you want to stand out and be the best Pokemon trainer there is. In your quest you travel from small towns to huge cities, across oceans and through caves while battling other trainers and developing a strong connection with the Pokemon you get hold of and train. In the Pokemon X & Y, you will be traveling around the Kalos region as you help Professor Sycamore learn more about the Mega Evolutions and of course you will be catching and training Pokemon in the process.

In terms of save system, you will discover that the new game involves a simple save button press unlike in the previous games where the saving process request would take a while to be granted. Furthermore, the Kalos region seems so much bigger that the other worlds found in the Pokemon universe. In the Kalos region, players can explore more places and towns and are not limited to just exploring the main cities. Aside from these, you will find other features such as the mini-games you can play on the bottom of the screen. These mini-games will allow you to help and train your Pokemon and develop a good relationship with your Pokemon. Pokemon-Amie is there to develop special bonds with your Pokemon by feeding them, playing with them, etc. Playing mini-games in PokeX can boost a Pokemon’s base statistics and Super Training can help increase a Pokemon’s EVs.

The biggest feature in the new game is the newly-discovered Mega Evolutions. The Pokemon who were thought before to be unable to evolve are the ones involved in Mega Evolutions and in an exciting twist, are even considered to be the strongest in the game.

However, even with the amazing features, X & Y has some drawbacks and one of them is the lack of originality. It seemed to us that the developers of X & Y did not do much to highlight all the Pokemon created for the latest generation. At the beginning of the game, you will pick from among the three new starters, Chespin, Froakie and Fennekin. As you progress through the game later on you will encounter a lot of older Pokemon series. Although capturing classic favorites was fun, it would have been more fun if we were able to play Silver, Sapphire or Red for that nostalgic feel. Actually, this is also what made us regret somehow the type of the first Pokemon we chose.

Even with that said, Pokemon X is still considered great additions to the franchise and are perfect for Pokemon gamers – both the enthusiasts who turned their backs on the series and the fanatics who have been supporting the games and DS Pokemon emulators all these years. Since generation 6 is considered a mega evolution of its own, Pokemon X & Y games are highly recommended for anyone who is a fan of Pokemon or even a 3DS owner who is thinking of completing their game collections.
