Which do you prefer in Pokémon games: 2D Sprites or 3D Models?

Generation VI brought something to the main Pokémon series that fans had never had before: fully 3D graphics. Pokémon battles were suddenly much more detailed than in previous games and the monsters looked more alive than ever with stunning cel-shaded models.

That being said however, 2D sprites have been a staple of the series and some may prefer the older style to today’s new look on the Nintendo 3DS. So now it’s time to share: do you think the 3D models are superior to the previous 2D art, or do you hope that the series might one day return to its roots?!

ps- I love the 3D models!
