I played Gens 1 through 3 recently on emulators and they worked out fine and I enjoyed it, but I do enjoy playing on my DS more. I have Desmume for 4 and 5 but I don't really use it too often myself.

How did you get a gba emulator on your PSP? I have one and want to be able to play ROM hacks on a handheld since I can't carry my laptop everywhere.

But what hardware do you use? Also, how do you get your ROM hacks on there to play?

I play on emulators all the gen games except for the ones on DS. I want to know how I can play the Rom Hacks on my DS or on my PSP. I see a lot of people were saying they play the roms on their PSP so I was wondering if yall could tell me how?

Best to use a emulator on a laptop for older games, Plus you have lots of hacks of these games and you can enter cheat codes easier. Also speed-up is good for GB pokemon games :D

Constantly, but every other time I use my PSP but I recently bought some flash carts so I could start playing rom hacks on my actual Game Boy. Nothing beats that!

I'm holding a controller, but I play on an emulator so it feels about the same as a console for me haha.

I do love playing gen1-3 on an emulator as its a great way to play the older games that you may have never played, the speed up button helps too

The emulators for the GBA games are alot better than any of the DS emulators I have tried and I still think that you cant beat holding the console in your hands and taking it everywhere.

Whenever I feel the need to playing a Pokémon game, doing it through roms and emulators is pretty much what I've consulted to doing, ever since I made the biggest mistake of my life a few years ago by giving away my oh so once beloved Gameboy Advance SP together with my collection of Gameboy Colour and Gameboy Advance games. That was a decisions I've really dreaded, though if I hadn't done that, I may never even have joined the community.

Anyways, yes, I do play Pokémon on my computer.

I play the Gameboy games (GB, GBC, GBA) emulated on VBA, but I play DS games on a real DS because it lags too much. I also use TGBDual for trading (Alakazam, Gengar)

When I'm at home I play on emulator (VBA), to conserve battery, when I'm not home I take GBA along with me.

I only use an emulator for recording purposes. Not that I feel any "shame" in it, I just always buy Pokemon games so might as well not have to worry about frames or crashing.

Emulators are some times kind of glitchy but they are helpful in some ways..

Gen I and II I played on my GBC, past that all on emulators because of speed button and ease of using AR codes.

I used a lot the official Dodrio Tower in the Stadium games for Gen I and II, saved a lot of time! Seems even Nintendo acknowledged grinding is boring. :D

If I used an emulator, it would be too tempting to abuse the save state and turbo modes. I would be able to grind levels extremely fast that way, reload state over and over until a status effect works, never miss a Pokeball catch, etc. (eliminating the chance factor of Pokemon) basically making the game too easy. I know it's a simple "well just don't do it", but I consider it a time saver more than cheating. Still, I like playing on the actual Gameboy/DS to prevent myself from being too tempted to "save time."
