I am looking to get a Game boy advance SP to play some of the old games on like the first couple Pokemon and other older games.

Should I spend time and find the orginal games that I want or find one of the multicarts out there with the games I want included ?

Thanks

As long as you can find info/reviews on a specific multicart that tested the Pokemon games out to make sure there's no saving issues, then a multi-cart would be fine.
If you're looking for single carts you'll also find a lot of reproduction carts, some of which do look really nice and indistinguishable from the originals, for much cheaper, but depending on who's making it there might be save issues as well, but I don't think thats a common problem these days. I got a repro-Emerald cart from ebay and it works fine.

I think you should get the best of both worlds.
Try to look for a really good flashcart, those that allow you to save the game without needing some crazy menu or so.
If u find any good deal on eBay or want to buy some of your favourite titles, why not? Just make sure to look into how to spot fake carts and stuff

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
    for people with beefy hands.
