Should GameFreak release some of the older games as apps?

I think it would be a solid business plan. They could put old games such as the original Gold/Silver and Red/Blue on the 3ds store and also on Apple/Android stores as well( although most people already download roms for that). They shouldn't put Ruby and Sapphire until a year or more after ORAS comes out. They won't sell like crazy, but Nintendo could gain a reasonable profit by doing almost no work at all. I don't think at this point it would hurt the remakes at all, but either way, NIntendo has to make some sort of Pokemon app for mobile phones, IMO. I know everyone on gamefaqs hate smartphones cuz "they don't have real games on there" which is somewhat true, but these smartphones can handle the old videogames.

Putting Nintendo games on non-Nintendo devices would be self-destructing on their part.

If its so horrible, then explain why. Everyone on this board and in general are videogame elitists who think that the smartphone market is for "noobs". If you disagree, at least state your point in why my opinion sucks.

Nintendo makes much more money selling games on their own hardware.
