    In front of computer...
    I have 20 plus games but am traveling and don't wanna go around carrying every game.

    So I got a flashcart and also pokemon black 2.

    Is there anyway accelerate/speed up the game?
    I played Pokemon Emerald way back on an emulator and kept using the x2 accelerator.

    Now playing Pokemon Black 2 feels so slooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww...

    Yes, but it includes mechanical modification of the system. You can increase the CPU frequency of your DS by swapping the oscillator on the motherboard.

    You can find more details here.

    We see this often enough though I can not find the full software hack writeup I once did (something very basic in http://gbatemp.net/threads/overclock-phat-ds.332849/#post-4354573 ).

    The short version is not really and certainly not at generic patch level like you can when you slow down games. If you worked at it you could get something done on a game by game basis but it would be a reasonably hard hack and chances are nobody with the requisite skills is going to be motivated enough to do it for pokemon (if nothing else it is actually a 3d game).
