it could be the camera(?)
is it AR as in AR cards
or AR as in Action Replay?

both of them are useless,
AR is just using cards for Specal feateres such as;pokedex3ds, ar card(app come w/ it&cards)

they haven't made an AR specially made for 3DS

it wouldn't really be important, you don't get pokemon in the 3ds pokedex by ar cards(not all of them). you get it by spot pass

        _______________________________________

          I'm still confused...
          Are you afraid the *cards* won't work? That's not a huge deal, because as the last poster pointed out, you can download just about any of the cards...

          If you're worried the dual-cameras won't work then stop worrying. In fact, if you want, go into the store you intend on getting this system from with a printed-out "?" AR card, and ask them if you can test it. A good friend of mine got hers at the local Gamestop, and it works perfectly fine, but again, feel free to check. If the hardware doesn't work, Gamestop I know will let you bring it back for either a refund or complete trade, since they guarantee the system to work.

But what if they decide to do something special?

Just my two cents on this, having owned a 3ds and now the 3ds xl, don't worry about the cards, they are just 'cosmetic' save for the '?' Which lets you play the ar games. When they release a special Pokemon, it's through spot pass/mystery gift at a participating store (usually GameStop) which the current special I believe just ended 4 days ago.

But you don't know that they won't release a future special using the cards...

That is true, that was just based off of what has been done so far, it would be nice to see ar cards have more use.

I'm just glad they stopped doing what they originally did for events...
Go for the 3DS XL if you can. After playing a demo, I so want one.
