Re: How would one rejoin Pokemon?
If you've got no problem with stretched screens and whatnot, then go for the 3DS. It's better in general because you can play games from the current generation and some of the older ones; for GBA and before, I doubt that you would need to pay much more than thirty dollars for an SP. If you are like me and need your pixels to be perfect, DS Lites are sixty if you get 'em used, and you can play both DS and GBA games.
Also, don't judge your Pokémon fandom on the anime. It's kind of lame.
