Best/cheap Pokemon title for Nintendo 3DS?

So I have never played any of the Pokemon titles, but they seem like something I would like. The game stores around me seem to have several different titles for the Nintendo 3DS that they are selling used pretty cheaply. Which Pokemon title for the 3DS would be OK to start with, assuming I've never played any of them, with bonus points for an older one that might be cheaper? Or should I have started playing from the first title and I'll be hopelessly lost about the gameplay now? [more inside]

I'm thinking about buying a portable gaming system for business trips.

My job requires me to travel a few times a year, for weeks at a time. I'm debating the purchase of a PSP or DS, specifically for travel-entertainment purposes. We've been over this before, but not for a couple of years, so I'm wondering about the State of Portable Consoles. [more inside]

What Nintendo DS Lite cases are good?

I really want a case for my DS Lite that can hold a few games and doesn't suck in some silly way. It doesn't need to hold the power adapter, as my main concern is portability. Being able to play the DS while inside the case is also not something I'm interested in at all. It doesn't even have to be a "real" case built for the DS—it could just be something that works well for the job. Do any MeFites have a case for your DS Lite that you're particularly fond of?
