As of late there have been rumors that Nintendo is working on a Game Boy Advance emulator to be released on the Nintendo Switch. A tweet from @trashbandatcoot, has sparked a lot of conversation and hype for this to happen. Nothing has been confirmed yet but it’s definitely a possibility and something fans have wanted for a long time. There are a lot of GBA games that fans are nostalgic for and would love to experience again without having to buy an old handheld console to do so.

Game Boy Games on Switch

A lot of Pokemon fans started with this era of gaming and the first Pokemon games played were most likely on the Game Boy. If Gameboy games come to Nintendo Switch, there’s potential for a ton of Pokemon games to be ported to the Switch. If the emulator is just for Gameboy Advance, we’re more likely to see games such as Pokemon Ruby than Pokemon Red. But fans of original Gameboy games and Gameboy Color games still have a chance of seeing their favorite Pokemon games on the Switch as the Gameboy Advanced was backwards compatible. Even if they don’t include GB and GBC games in the GBA emulator, there’s a chance they’ll make emulators later down the road for those devices as well. Here’s a list of all potential Pokemon games to come to the Nintendo Switch if they release a Game Boy emulator!
