Pokemon Y Nintendo 3DS

Pokémon Y 3DS Emulator for PC, Android, Mac

Pokemon Y 3DS emulatorDid you know that each and every Pokemon game you have ever played has been nothing but a lie? Somehow, the developer of the game has assembled some sort of deceit wrapped around the idea that the Pokemon series is all about being friends with your Pokemon. According to them, the best trainers are those who are the kindest and nicest to their monsters. However, you should have known all along that it’s never the ones who care about their Pokemon’s feelings or the ones who trust their monsters. As a matter of fact, Pokemon Y & X is the only game where the developer has finally addressed the main goal and the thesis of the franchise and it is only where your bond with your monster truly matters.

Your bond with your Pokemon now matters in combat where you are battling against other 3D Pokemon. Those pocket monsters possessing a strong bond with you (which you can achieve by playing mini-games and by petting your Pokemon) are expected to perform better. They will land critical hits, dodge attacks and shrug off status effects a lot more often. Having your monster survive two attacks simply because it has a very strong affection for you is one of the reasons why being friends with the little guys matters. At times it would feel random, which is guaranteed to enrage the type of fan who takes the statistical side of the game seriously, but it can also be entrancing to players who allow themselves to be virtually immersed in the game’s charming world.


Right now there is NO WORKING emulator for 【3Ds MODE】 Games. as soon as a real emulator for 3DS is released this page will be updated to reflect that!

MicroSD equiped blank 3DS Game Cards can emulate the Pokemon cartridge and NAND save game memory for playing backups on 3DS, but there is no way to play Poke X&Y 3D games on a Windows PC, Mac or Android.

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...

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.

Emulator Development Progress:

【DS MODE】 of the 3DS console can be emulated using good old NDS emulators. DeSmuME, No$GBA, DasShiney, DuoS DSEMU

【Cartridge Hardware Emulation】
3DS Game Cards have been successfully cloned for running copied games. microSD Flash memory is used to store the game files and most features with the exception of online trading work.

【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...

Don't expect the first REAL 3DS emulator to be without any bugs and run games with 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 Y 3DS Game

Nintendo 3DS gameplay review

It is great that Pokemon Y has features that make you feel as if you are part of its universe. The 3D world makes the environment a lot more beautiful and lifelike, thereby making the game a lot more visually interesting and entertaining. Even the other visuals such as the outfits, hairstyles, caves, dungeons, etc. show amazing improvements which in the other Pokemon series seemed to have been overlooked or not given special attention to.

However, the detailed Pokemon seems to be somewhat too much for the handheld. Occasional frame rate drops can be experienced and the 3D slider is disabled in most parts of the game, which is rather a shame considering the number of areas that look as if they were specifically designed to benefit from the added depth of what the stereoscopic 3D delivers.

While the more detailed Pokemon Y world also does great wonders to making the franchise appear more advanced, it also makes some elements of the game feel and appear a bit dated. One that is can be noted is the number of creatures to choose from (now more than 700), which makes it trickier for players to remember all their differences and quite challenging for them to manage their own monsters. As always, you can expect players to be able to learn which types are weak or strong against others, which actually worked well for the first generations when most of the Pokemon creatures appeared the type they were. Although discovery is a fun part of the game, it is rather impractical to expect the players to remember each and every type of Pokemon they will encounter in the game, especially now when there are more than 700 creatures all in all.

When it comes to game saves on the cartridge or on a 3DS emulator, saving your game is near-instant and the interface has already been streamlined to make your every action as painless as possible, like from checking the map to trading monsters with friends. EXP Share also allows you to share experience among all your monsters to keep them around basically the same level. In addition, the change to Effort Value or EV Training is quite impressive considering it was a previously hidden mechanic that has been made more manageable in the latest game.

Other downsides of the Pokemon Y game include horde battles that pit you against a group of low-level Pokemon at once, which is supposed to be compelling but is annoying instead. Also, Sky Battles take place too infrequently thereby leading you to forget that they even exist in the game. Another big disappointment is the Mega Evolutions. There are certain Pokemon that can temporarily evolve in the middle of a battle and will have stats that are different from what they have in their regular form, but there is not really a compelling reason not to make use of the ability especially when there is no real negative to using it. The sole restriction is that you can Mega Evolve only one fighter for each battle thereby making is difficult to come up with a strategic difference. Since Mega Evolutions is a feature of the game and is visually impressive, you would still want to use it and do it. However, there is nothing really much to expect from it.

Despite the renovations, innovations and evolutions, Pokemon Y & X still basically feels like the usual Pokemon game overall. Of course, you can spend more time petting your Pikachu and you can get to choose a variety of starters, but Pokemon Y still lands in the same comfort zone Pokemon emulation followers have found themselves in for years and for a total of 6 generations. The developer, we must say, somehow did a great task of cleaning up certain aging mechanics and creating a visually stimulating Poke world any Pokemon fan would be crazy to explore.
