Because no emulator can emulate my nostalgia for pokemon as much as an old dusty gameboy waiting for me in my closet.

It's actually pretty easy to replace the battery.

Naaaah, I already fixed that on all of my games (and did so a year ago for Crystal, even, because the battery had already died).. It's preventable without losing your savegame tongue.gif

Just hook up a new battery in parallel using some small wires, then take out the old battery (it's tacked onto the tabs so it'll be hell to pry it loose without messing up the tabs; use a jeweler's flathead screwdriver) and place a new button cell battery (either CR2016 or CR2025 will fit in the GB/GBC game cartridges if you decide to use tape/hot glue, CR2032 if you can cram it), then take off the temporary battery and there you go, game save file preserved and a brand new back-up battery! smile.gif Do it before it's too late because it'll be irreversible when it disappears!

On another note, the GBA games (Gen III) weren't the only awesome ones eh, think about Gold/Silver/Crystal! Together with the Gen I games I think Gen II was the most fun to play overall.

Ah the nostalgia. My yellow gameboy color and Pokemon Red. Good times nerdsmiley.png IMO none of the later ones where quite as good as the original RED&Blue games. But I will admit that I played the crap out of GOLD as well.

Make sure you don't buy fakes! There are a LOT of fake cartridges of all generation Pokémon games out there >.< Heck, even I have two of them xD
