I must confess, I have NEVER played Pokemon on gameboy.
Computer with emulator all the way, ever since pokemon blue.
Seriously why they don't do a huge Pokemon game for PC or something is beyond me, but I guess most fans isn't like me...

The only backside with using emulators is that you can't trade Pokemons with other.(or at least you couldn't with the early ones.)
I remember when I played Poke Blue, I loved both Golem and Alakazam but I couldn't have them because of the trade thingy.

Imagine having DS with all legit stuff to trade and still none trades because of wi-fi regulations and lack of ppl playing DS in Poland

At least I laid my filthy hands on Steelix in SS. He was my dream since Gold but because of afermentioned reasons couldnt get him.

You can trade now with emulators over the same computer, at least mine can.

Though I'm not certain if there are internet trading possibilities, but it does seem quite likely there are.

I find playing on an emulator, if you're just a little creative, way superior to playing on the gameboy. If you look back in this thread you'll find my rant about a lot of stuff in pokemon I think they could have done better, and one thing I think they could have done better are adding relative simple stuff, such as the emulator does.

It means being able to run multiple games on the same gameboy that can interact (sadly only in battles and trades), increase the speed of the game to skip parts the individual might find boring much faster, and being able to quicksave whenever you want and quickload.

There are still stuff that could improve an emulator, or maybe mine are just outdated by now, it's 2-3 years old all after all. Like a way to improve the increased game speed to skip boring parts would be to make it possible to give the emulator commands to follow that it could then execute without the user.

So you want a Ditto with max defense and spc. defense for improved breeding and you're not interested in spending hours - days searching for it? Well type in to the emulator to walk in grass, save on temp, use pokeball, if catch (else load and retry) then give 50 rare candies, if stats are equivalent to how max def and spc def have been defined, then keep Ditto and stop, else load temp, run and restart procedure.

Edit: often the turn off with emulators are that you have to sit in front of the computer. Unlike nintendo, playstation and game boy which are designed for games, a computer is not and it can often be much more relaxing and entertaining to find a quit spot, maybe outside, but not where the sun gives problems, or in a comfortable chair, like when you watch TV, to play such games.
However with most cell phones, or what they're called, these days having similiar abilities as a computer, one can often simply use emulators on these and thereby have an improved game boy. For simulating the playstation and nintendo, all it really requires is to be able to connect the computer screen to your TV screen and viola (I believe it only requies a single wire).

Several alternative controls imitating those of the game machines have long ago been invintend for the computer as well.

INFIDELS! You should have the original and play stuff in the way they were designed too! If a DS was not so bloody expensive I would not have gotten this DS emulation >.<

But the fact that you can trade with your own computer is nice.

I played them on GB, I played on PC.


It felt a milion times more fun on GB.

Sure, you can cheat with save states on PC. But the satisfaction of getting a rare poke on GB is a million times higher. Such is the training and battling.

However yea, you won't get much wi-fi action in Poland.

And there is a PC game of Pokemon. There are lots of programs like Shoddy battle that allow you to pick a team and compete with other people online. It's very popular, also difficult as ****, your "standard" GB team would have been ripped apart in seconds.

*Arcax* was here!

One of the major problems with shoddy is that some of moves doesn't behave as they are "supposed" to (as in how they act in the game).

Like imprision have (or had?) long been way overpowered when combined with transform, basicly guaranteeing a complete win.

There is a reason why emulators are superior and that's the turbo option.

Nothing beats grinding like grinding 100 faster.

I didn't use to think that! My instinct upon first seeing the species was to recoil with horror! What's haaaappening to meeeee?!!

[serious]No, really. The pic that came out originally made the critter looked demon-possessed, but seeing it moving and talking and acting like a living creature made me want to pick it up and cuddle it. Marketing department really dropped the ball there.

Yeah, that critter has a "Baby's first stuffed animal" feel about it.
I'm still getting Tepig though. There's plenty other interesting gen V Water critters. Fire, not so much. And its the only dual-type starter. I likes them dual-types.

Okay I just beat the Light Temple in Guardian Signs and presumably finished the multiplayer story off, and I have to say...that's it? That's all the ending they're going to give me?! I actually got a blister from all the retries to finish that level, making this the first game in memory that I have actually injured myself playing—and they can't even give me a decent level of closure?!! *shakes fist* I got more of the aftermath from a bonus mission, what gives?!!

Lost my copy of Soul Silver, so I had to get a copy of Pearl.  Why you ask? So I can get Cerebi from Gamestop.  I will have 4 days to unlock the trade function..cause it ends the 6th.  The good thing is, if I get it AND get Black/White..I can trade it to Black/White and get access to yet another special pokemon.  Just sad I missed the shiny ones that were offered at Gamestop.
