    there is no .nds version cuz its a hack of fire red a GBA game
    You can play it if you a 3 in 1 or m3 real( dont reccommend playing on m3)
    P.S. just play it on your computer with a gba emulator preferably vba

    If you have a slot 2 cart you could probably play it directly from that... Not exactly sure though because I have yet to buy a slot 2 cart myself.

    Currently I'm playing it on my PSP...

    This is somethin' I've wanted to know myself..

    Note, I'd like to get Shiny Gold and possibly Emerald working on my 3in1, if that's at all possible.

    the shinygold patch corrupts the header(nintendo logo) of the game.
    this is a little verification to prevent non-licensed software from running.

    you can easily fix the header with gbata.

    Doesn't SG have to use save states?

    I found out how to get ShinyGold working on an EZFlash 3in1, so if you have one yourself, that's a perfect option.
