So as you might notice up there at the top of this journal, I'm playing Pokémon Red at the moment. In the spare time I have between work and comics, I remembered the Pokémon roms I have on my flash drive; they were sent to me six years ago when I got my Mac, but much to my dismay, I couldn't get Visual Boy to run on it. But it works just fine on my laptop, and I've been rolling in the nostalgic fun of the 8-bit Kanto region for the last few days
Now I'm looking to get more, but I have some very bad history with downloading Pokémon roms on my own. It was actually a virus disguised as a rom of Pokémon Ruby that wiped out my first computer, and I've been super apprehensive of getting new ones ever since. Does anyone know of a reputable source for roms from Generation III - that is, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen? And, for that matter, a good safe download for Visual Boy Advance, with that nifty little feature that'll let me link trade Pokémon between my own roms?
