Talk:Game Boy

Does not really have much relevance to Pokémon (would we create a "TV" article because the anime appeared on it?)... articles that link here would probably be better off linking to the Wikipedia version, I think. - Hyperworm


Actually, it does have relevance if people want to look up the systems pokemon has appeared in in the games. We also have a Game Cube page too that needs to be worked on. We can make our own Game Cube and GBA articles. We also have a DS one. It makes sense to have the systems the games appeared on.

Not only that, but Pokemon in general is pretty highly tied to the Gameboy systems. It pretty much single-handedly kept sales of the Gameboy going consistantly for years.

Perfectly happy with that justification. - Hyperworm

Should we mention the GameBoy Pocket and GameBoy Light? I'm not sure if the GameBoy Light ever got released outside of Japan, but I know the pocket did. They would've been out around the same time the original Pokémon games were released in Japan, IIRC.--Archaic 12:04, 22 Feb 2005 (UTC)


and even play voices.

And Yellow didn't? - Ferret 07:21, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Do you think it would be okay to write a summary of each system In addition to the link? I think a 1-3 sentence summary could satisfy some people. Especially those with computers that a while to load pages. :P Pokemon.princesses 03:12, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

That makes perfect sense. Make it in vague, as you want the reader to click the linkDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 03:17, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Why do we have stuff about the Game Boy Advance on here? Sure, it shares the Game Boy name, but it's a completely separate console. We don't have a paragraph about the 3DS on the Nintendo DS page, even though it shares the DS name. Also, the Game Boy isn't the best-selling handheld of all time. The DS is. If we're counting GBA sales, then yes, the Game Boy line is higher, but we shouldn't, since it's a completely separate system! It would be like Sony claiming PlayStation has sold 300 million. tl;dr: We should get rid of the paragraphs on the GBA and SP, and at least change the quote about best-selling handheld.
