    So now a new console the nintendo switch has been released so 3ds is the old console now. has there been any emulators that can run at least pokemon x and y.

    the fact that the 3ds has been superceded has absolutely no bearing on the state of the console's emulation.

    Yes some of the nightly/bleeding edge builds of the emulator Citra(citra-emu.org) have been able to emulate many 3ds games including pokemon x&y and super mario titles.

    so citra can fully run pokemon x and y?

    It can run both Pokémon X & Y, but you may run into different graphical glitches and errors in your playing.
    Thus, I wouldn't say it can run the games "fully".

    Just because a newer console is released doesn't mean that the "ex-new" system (3DS) will immediately have working emulators, sadly. We all have to give the emu-developers time.

    No. The following gameplay video of X from September 2016 shows that there are still issues with the emulation.



    And this video of X (I've only watched some parts of it) from January 2017 shows lags.



    Unless you don't mind playing games with lags and/or graphics glitches, I would recommend you to wait until the 3DS emulation is more stable and fully works. The past Nintendo-games are great too! ;)

    The ROMs will need to be decrypted before you can play it on Citra.
    You can download such versions of the ROMs here.
