Well I know you can play DS games. I am not sure about the multiplayer. I really hope so as I have white and the 3ds will be my only DS system. I am sure someone else has a better idea.

If you're playing SS, you can battle/trade with other players with HeartGold/SoulSilver/Platinum/Diamond/Pearl.

B/W can only battle/trade with other B/W games regardless if you're playing them on the regular DS or 3DS.

Having the 3d slider on doesn't do anything to the DS game. The system pretty much disables it since its not a 3DS game.
