    I don't want any GBA emulators that support DS as well or anything like that, I want a GBA emulator for DS. Does anyone know of any?

    You can't make an emulator for GBA that works on a slot-1 flashcart. DS card read access speeds are slower than GBA cartridges, rendering the matter impossible.

    EZ-Flash 3in1s are only about $20.

    The DS itself already emulates GBA games. Just make sure they are commercial games and not ROMs. If they're ROMs, get a slot 2 flashcart.

    The DS doesn't "emulate" GBA games, it has the GBA hardware inside it, it uses the hardware and plays the games.

    An emulator to do what the DS can do natively doesn't seem very practical to me. Just get a slot2 flashcart and play all the GBA games you can stand. That's what I did.
