Visual Boy Advance was released quite a while now. I remember when I used this emulator on my old Windows XP computer, and I still have this GBA Emulator until now on my PC.
As a Pokemon fan, I can’t forget how impressive Visual Boy Advance is. Good thing there are still developers of VBA still working on updating this software.
There are dozens of GBA emulators available on different platforms, but if you prefer to play Pokemon GBA games on your Windows computer, I would suggest installing Visual Boy Advance.
