    Pokemon is Pokemon is Pokemon is Pokemon. Perhaps with racing games, where shoulder buttons need to be quickly and percisely mashed with other buttons, and some sort of directional with a D-pad, along with touchscreen input, that could get messy. But otherwise, games of less intensity should be easily played with touch buttons. I do question the screen size of an iPhone being able to fit all those buttons, plus 2 screens with decent resolutions.

    iPad would be the best option for this, obviously. Otherwise it'd require either really small screens (if you we're displaying both simultaneously) or constant screen switching. Best case scenario for emulating a DS on an iPhone would be a Bluetooth controller (Wiimote) with a hotkey for screen switching.

    It'd take a lot of time... Just look at the state of ds emulators for android right now! I'd love to see it happen, though.

    O__O I thought this would NEVER be developed.. #provedmewrong
    Would kind of be silly to play on the iPhone/iPod Touch though..

    I just hope zodttd doesn't try too much at once and burn out. I think there's like four emulators currently in development.

    The battery life might not actually suck. The two Nintendo DS emulators on Android seem pretty nice on battery life.
