Nintendo 3DS Themes

In October 2014, a system update came to the Nintendo 3DS that allowed for customised themes. These themes could be purchased in a special Theme Shop accessed on the home menu and then adorn the Nintendo 3DS console with certain aesthetics. Music based on the theme will play in the background and the folder icons will change to match the theme. They also feature a Pokémon sound effect when you bring the console out of sleep mode.

In addition to that, you can set a random 10 themes to be put in rotation whenever you load up your home screen.
