    I've yet to get an Android device but should be purchasing the Desire shortly.

    My question is are there any Pokemon emulators available for Android handsets, if so, are they half decent?

    Get GBAoid. It'll play all the game boy advance pokemon games. I've tried them, and it works.

    Gameboid. You can play any gba pokemon game perfectly with it.
    There are various sites where you can find ROMS, however I wont post a link just in case people use them illegally.
    Only download roms of games that you actually own.
    Theres a free version of gameboid on the market but has some limits.

    you need to have a bios file installed on your phone. user google to find the correct file to download and once you launch gameboid you will have to sellect the file (just put it in the same location you have been putting your ROM's). You will only need to sellect this once on bootup then your golden.

    I use gameboid as well, I originally had a gameboy colour emulator for nostalgia purposes, but now I stick with gameboid as gameboy advance is so much better really.
    I am working my way through pokemon emerald right now, and its pretty similar to the pokemon red I had as a kid but better colour and graphics.
    For gameboid you will need to get the bios as well but its quite easy to find.

    No worries, you will still need to get the BIOS as I don't think i'm allowed to post the link, easy enough to find on google though.

    @LexionStudio : Keep in mind that nintendo doesn't "want" to make money on GAME but on HARDWARE and you will understand why...
    They don't want to "lose time" and money in android development to only satisfy few (or maybe some...) users and don't get money for it.

    That why i'm creating my game... For your information, i will be able to easilly "mod" my game to run a REAL pokemon world if the game is concluant

    I is actually illegal to download any copyrighted material with out approved written consent of the owner/creator. Regardless of whether or not you own a real copy. If you own it there are many cheap and easy ways to create backups. Which are legal and you are entitled to make if you so choose.
