How To Play Pokemon DS Games on Windows For Free
Finding old Pokemon games can get difficult sometimes, but this hub will show you how to get all of the following games and possibly more:
- Diamond and Pearl
- Black and White
- Black and White 2
- The Ranger games
- All mystery dungeon games except Red rescue team and the 3DS versions
- Conquest (highly recommend this, so much fun)
So I'm sure most of you know how this works, you need to download an Emulator and get roms.
The emulator you want is called Desume. This will allow you to play any DS game you download on your computer. There are many scam websites and viruses out there that will try to trick you in downloading them, so look for this emulator on a site called "emuparadise". I won't be posting links so just look that up and it should be at the top of your results.
Once on the site there should be a search bar near the top, just type in Desume and look for the download link. Once downloaded I recommend moving the file onto your desktop for easy access and make a folder for all of your DS games. This will allow you to find your games easier.
Next you'll look for the roms. All you need to know about roms is that they are the game you want to play. For example the Pokemon Diamond rom is just the download file for Pokemon Diamond.
So while you are on the site, look up any pokemon game you want. Scroll down until you see a version in your language and click it. Scroll down and download the rom file.
Playing The Game
Once the emulator and the rom have been downloaded, open up Desume and click on file in the top left, then click open rom and choose whatever game you downloaded. If you did it correctly you should see the opening of the game starting up.
Settings and Speed
Once playing you'll probably think the controls are weird and the game is slow. Click on "configure" at the top and click "control config", then set the controls to your liking. I personally use "D" as the "A" button, "S" as "B" and "X" as "X". Everything else I left as default.
As for the speed, I recommend watching the following video.
And that's all there is too it. I hope you have fun with all the possible games you can now play. You can also find other emulators for other systems like GBA, GBC, Gamecube ect.
Until my next post, have a great day.
