    Ok, well.. Unfortunately I decided to start re-watching Pokemon (I say unfortunately because it's very unfortunate..for my grades lol) anyway, well.. I just watched most of the first season + the first movie and it's official.

    I am 12 years old
    and I am obsessed..once again.

    Anywho, I really want to start playing again but last time I had a pokemon game was pokemon yellow on my gameboy color :rofl1:

    So first of all (and this would be easiest) is there any way to just get the game on my ipad? that would be lovely.. last thing I need is another electronic...

    I have been a good girl when it comes to apple products.. I buy music off itunes and apps from the app store but dammit I WANT THIS GAME

    So by whatever means necessary.. HELP! Lol

    Pikachu and I have a love/hate relationship. My first real job was in Pokemon customer service for the WotC card game.

    Sorry no help on getting it for the I pad but I can understand the appeal as a time burner. :D BTW I was totally obsessed with Pokemon Snap for awhile.

    No, you have to do it illegally. I.E. get emulation software and a ROM for whichever game you want for it.

    Unless Fran found something else. ;)

    Nope lol had to do it the good ol fashioned illegal way

    First used this super simple video on HOW TO jailbreak your iphone/ipad 2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25Wvf3ppnTo

    and then I bought the emulator, "GPSPHONE" for $4.99
    ( I could've gotten it for free but I was already feeling pretty guilty at that point lol )

    and through GPSPHONE, you click search and go through/download ROMS (these are the games)
    I now have pokemon fire, emerald and yellow :D

    Hahaha I can play them on my Mac and when the black & white games came out, I was obsessedddddd and went right back to childhood.

    Old Pokemon is way better though. Makes me want to bust out the GB.

    Wait wait wait...are you saying you can download a pokemon game as an ap for the Droid? Legally? *WANTS*

    I really want to play Crystal again. I'm currently playing yellow, but I have to keep remembering that dark and steel aren't types, and that special is both defense and attack. I keep forgetting I can't bite a ghost for massive points, or that I can use slash on a Magnemite (and NOT fire...) and have it be effective. LOL

    I am loving the fact that I can use ground moves on floating pokemon, though. ^^

    My battery died last night mid-game so I have to start over. Of course it dies just as I start to battle a Pikachu. XD

    Go to the App Store (Market on droids), search for GBC A.D., download that app.

    THEN

    Do a google search for Pokemon (insert color/stone here) ROM then download a version you would like (might take a while to find one that will dl to your phone)

    Go to your home screen, load GBC A.D. app, Find the file you DL'ed (should be in DL folder) then load and play!
