    XenForo has a mobile layout, whether it works on 3DS or not I have no idea, and we wont be putting in any work to make it 3DS compatible. The 3DS is really not meant to browse the web.

    Has there been a specific time the forums will go down yet (and when will that be in U.S. time)?

    And also how long is the estimated time for the upgrade to finish and for the forums to come back online?

    None at all. All Serebii said is Saturday night. Assuming Joe means Saturday night according to HIS local time, being in the United Kingdom, it would be around early Saturday afternoon for the United States. No clue how long the process will take, but it shouldn't be that long.

    We're projecting at least a day, but we have no idea how long the import of information and initial testing will take.

    When the forums are fully upgraded, will we keep all our posts, post counts and rank?

    To keep you updated, it looks like the conversion may take a day or so. We're aiming for a relaunch on Tuesday next week, but it could be pushed back to Wednesday. Hoping for Monday though.

    Can there be a normal type style? It's the only type not to have one. With either Chansey, Eevee, or Snorlax?

    Any set time as to when to expect the update begin so people trying to post won’t be suddenly surprised when they are kicked off half way through typing a reply?

    We won't have the other style types either after the update.

    spyrois2cool Woof!

    I appreciate the big heads up, and answering my Questions! One last question I have for now is this: Will members still be able to chat with each other while the upgrade is taking place? I don’t care if I can’t RP, I just wanna be able to chat with (the only active) friend I have on here. If not, then we’ll have to try and use Discord of Skype or something to communicate while the upgrade happens.

    And desktop versions, I always use the Desktop site of any website on my phone. I’m use used to it that way.

    I can’t think of any more questions at the moment...so thanks for all that info! Really helps me to be prepared!
