Day 5

As I prepare to leave Jubilife City via the North exit, I find Professor Rowen being accosted by two people who are wearing the same outfit. This outfit stands out quite a lot here.  They seems to want something from the Professor for a Team Galactic, and appear to not to be taking No for answer.

Hardware

Starting off, I’m going to cover the hardware used: The Nintendo 2DS. The 2DS is has near full DS compatibility, with only the GBA port not being present being the only known issue.

The 2DS was the best choice for long term play out of remaining consoles I owned, as some 3DS or DS consoles already in use with games I’m planning to trade with, and damage to others.
