    Yes, it can.
    Image is outdated for the DSTWO and iPlayer however.

    No.
    The Emulator mentioned above only works because the DSTwo and iPlayer have onboard CPUs that run the emulator, not the DS itself.

    If you have a DS/DSLite (not DSi/DSi XL) you can use a Slot-2 device to play GBA ROMs, but it is not an emulator.

    There are two options for playing GBA on a DS.

    - Slot 2 flash cart on a DS Lite
    - Supercard DSTwo flash card

    Don't own those? Not going to happen. The DS alone simply doesn't have access to the hardware needed. Supercard DSTwo has a extra CPU and RAM to do it, while the Slot 2 card can put the DS into GBA mode, which is the only way to access that hardware, since it needs a working GBA cart in Slot 2 to start the GBA hardware.

    If hackers and homebrew developers don't lose interest in the DSi then there may be a flash-card-free GBA Emulator that works on the DSi! Let us all hope that day will come.

    Pretty sure they've said not even the DSi is powerful enough to emulate the GBA.
