DS Lites are discontinued and most people won't buy them anymore even if they aren't. DSi and 3DS do not have the GBA port.
Sorry, but if people are willing to buy a 3DS just for the next Gen. of Pokémon games, I'm going to assume they would be willing to buy a DS Lite just for transferring Pokémon over from Gen. III.

The GBA games also have a battery that will stop all time based events once it runs out.
I'm not quite sure where you're going with that.
But it's true that remaking R/S would solve the dry battery issue for good.

Since you can go to Kanto in HGSS, you can obtain all Kanto Pokémon. The only one left is Hoenn.
To be fair, you can obtain all Pokémon from Bulbasaur all the way up to Arceus without having to transfer from Gen III.
In fact, the only Pokémon you couldn't obtain between D/P/Pt were the Gen I/II/III starters and most legendary Pokémon.
Then HG/SS came and you could get the weather trio + Latias/Latios, while Platinum let you get Regirock/Regice/Registeel (Though it's true you needed an event-only Pokémon for that. At least you could trade the event Regigias on the GTS. :/)
