Pokémon games

The New Nintendo 2DS XL is compatible with the same games as the original Nintendo 3DS. There are some games that the original 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS cannot play, but none of these are Pokémon games.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Pokémon Sun and Moon (and its demo), and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon use more memory than normal 3DS games and disable some of the HOME Menu's functionality on older 3DS family systems, but not on the "New" models due to their increased RAM.
