so,what's you're favorite pokemon.(I'm guessing it's Pikachu.)My favorite non-legendary has got to be either grovyle or Luxray.and as for a NDS lite or even the original one the prices have dropped do to the release of the DSI and 3DS.(also,you probably already know this,but you can play some of the NDS pokemon games online)
Hi, I'll start the VM conversation as it's more user-friendly
As for games, I don't own any Nintendo device, so I emulate my ROMs on Android platform. I play mostly hacks, favorites are: Emerald 386, Ash's Quest, Flora Sky, Liquid Crystal. I can't play 4th gen as these are very hard to emulate and I just don't feel like investing into a new NDS...
I still have a sort of abhorrence when it comes to some 5gen Pokemon like Vanillish and Trubbish/Garbodor, Gothita and some others.
