Super Game Boy, Color or....

I have a Super Game Boy, a Game Boy Color, a GBA, and a GBA Player for the gamecube.

Which one of these has the most/best special features for R/B/Y?

Super Game Boy for Red and Blue.
Game Boy Color for Yellow.

I don't know about the results on the GBA Player.

If you have an N64, Pokemon Stadium 1 or 2, and at least 1 Transfer Pak, then I'd suggest that for all 3 games in the first gen.

Failing that, go for the Super Game Boy for all of them. Only Yellow has native GBC support in the form of a proper colour palette. (Note that the GBA and GBA Player will both essentially act like a GBC in this regard)

I read a bit of doc about GBC games rendering on GBA, I discourage playing GBC game on these as some colors are not handled properly.

Pokémon Stadium uses a standard Super Game Boy emulator. It blocks non-Pokémon games by checking the ROM Header, meaning that if you change any game header that has SGB functions built-in, you can partially play it on Pokémon Stadium :

tl;dr : Pokémon Stadium = Super Game Boy

It should be noted that the colours on a Super Game Boy may appear to be slightly washed-out compared to playing on Stadium - I assume this will be down to extra filters being applied within Stadium's emulator.
