Pokemon wasn't created?
I mean, it sounds really bogus, but wasn't interest in GameBoy seriously dying out at the time Pokemon was introduced? And wasn't Game Boy Color created as a direct result of the new market of game boys? I just want to see if this theory I came up with while ranting in the Anime board has any merit with your opinions.
Well, I'm sure the Game Boy Color was also created to test a new market for Dragon Warrior games...
...BWAAAHAHAHAHA! I'm sorry, I kid. Nobody likes Dragon Warrior except for the entire country of Japan and a handful of Net geeks elsewhere. But the opinions of said geeks don't matter at all to those stuffed shirts at Square Enix, now do they?

You mean that if there was no Pokemon, there'd be no Gameboy color, if there were no GBC there'd be no GBA, and also no DS and PSP? I don't really think so. Of course, pokemon was a huge succes, but there were other succesful games for Gameboy too, like Mario Land and stuff. Plus: pokemon is one of those games that runs just fine on a low-res grayscale screen, and really slow linking. Just look at the GFX of the newer pokemon games: you can see that based on greyscale, you can even say that they're bigger made tiles of pkmn blue, that are just colored. (well, at least pokemon fire red is)
Why would they make a device with 3D gfx, Wlan, 2 screen etc.. for pokemon?
If there weren't games or computers what is there left for us to do??? [and no computers include Calcs!]
I'm not saying they were made FOR pokemon, but as a direct result of the success it brought to the Game Boy franchise.
I heard the Atlantis (code name for the GBA) was in development long before they made the GameBoy Color.
Yay, my internet connection's back up!
no the GB(C) isn't made for pokémon, pokémon was made for the GB(C)
*sigh* must I clarify this again?
My question posed, was that:
Did the new popularity that Pokemon brought to the Game Boy inspire the better version of game boy, and eventually the advance, and DS?
nope, it's just new and better technology they want to show and share with us [for some bling bling]
[for about 5000 Septims maybe..]
