    Well, nope. It's is not possible.
    The closest you could have is DSiwares.

    There is so many threads on this, NOOO, shell out the $5-$10 for a freaking flash cart, or use Drastic on your phone.

    If the 3DS can barely emulate GBA...what in the world makes you think it can emulate DS?

    No DS emulator, but a DS launcher like DIOS MIOS or Nintendont, maybe...

    Thats basically what I was after, poor choice on wording the title but I did say seeing as it handled it natively I was wondering if there was a way to boot it natively.

    I know it has no hope in emulating it

    Of course is possible, the 3ds has the hardware to do that, we only need a homebrew or something like to do that.

    I liken writing a native DS emulator for the 3DS similar to coding a PS2 emulator for the early phat PS3.

    Your making PS2 software run on the PS3's CELL cpu and RSX gpu when there is PS2 Emotion Engine and Graphics Synthesizer chips sitting 10 centimeters away on the main-board.

    Just spend 5 dollars on a flashcart.

    Amm... That's not a reason for refuse a DS loader, imagine load DS games vía cia, that would be great.

    3DS has some kind of DS and DSi support already. But it is probably not powerful enough to emulate DS or DSi though.
