Hi, I saw a pretty cheap cartridge for Pokemon game, and I wonder, do you only need cartridge to play a game? I want to buy a DS/3DS console for Pokemon games, but I have never used any console, sooooo...are cartridge and console the only thing I need in order to play te game?
Also, do you know where can I buy pokemon games on Polish sites so that my money will benefit the company which made games? Do Chinese companies selling stuff on web shops like allegro actually give the original creators profit from the consoles/games?

DS games require a cartridge, 3DS games you can either use cartridges or buy games off the online store.
However, support for the 3DS online store will end in early 2022. After that, you'll need a cartridge to play those games.

if your going to be downloading games you'll probably want a bigger SD card. the card they come with is only big enough for updates really, you "might" be able to fit like 2 games on it.
cartridge games dont really save anything on the SD card.

new mechanic in battle where you can mentally erase enemies when you deplete all their MP instead HP. this gives you a special item of their "memory". it's pretty to do in battle so far.
Apparently MZ lets you preview move routes in the move route editor without having to start up test game. That could save a lot of time during development compared to MV, especially for a long game that uses a lot of event movement for cutscenes.
