I always wondered why they stopped this in 4th Gen. Yeah, "Diamond" and "Pearl" aren't colors, but they were still associated with pink and dark blue on everything.
Although I guess it would've been weird in Gen 5 since the DS carts are black anyway. (Or at least a very dark gray.)

Come to think of it, have any DS carts ever been different colors? I can't think of any.

Very much so. Blue and red game cards would hit me in the nostalgia so hard.

I feel like blue and red carts would do two things:
Reel in the nostalgia folks and
Upset genwunners.
Both of these are awesome and I support colored carts.

IIRC, only the carts that had Infrared thing ON the cart had deifferent colored carts... which were black and are limited to HG,SS and the gen 5 games.

Actually I have due to the fact that I own one. Take a look at the link, it's clearly a black cartridge with a white sticker.

would it have really been so hard to make white and white 2 a white cartridge?
#18Arne83Posted 9/9/2013 1:49:28 PM
I guess I'm gonna have to be that guy.

No, not really. When you really look back it, it was nothing more than a stupid gimmick.

Snowflame is greatest comic villain ever made. Shame on DC for letting him fade into obscurity.

There was somethign awesome about having Pokemon be the only series with color cartridges...


I guess if you're going by series, this is true, but there were other cart colors like green, purple, clear, etc. for some games.

Pokemon was just the only very popular one.

Though I think Donkey Kong... whatever the DKC-like games were that were on GB and GBC... I think they had yellow carts? I don't remember.
