Why is the X button unused in emulated Game Boy Color games?

I wish Y would become B and B would be A. It's annoying trying to run in SML

This is exactly the same on the Wii VC. If you try to play SNES games with a GC controller, you find that the buttons have been mapped 1:1, meaning A is A, B is B, Y is Y, etc. This makes many games, especially games where you have to hold a button to run, like Super Mario World, or Donkey Kong Country, virtually unplayable, unless you claw up your hand.

I used to think it was just a scam by Nintendo to get you to buy Classic Controllers, but seeing that they have the same problem with the 3DS, it might just be stupidity/laziness/ignorance on Nintendo's part.

Nintendo are lazy. We will never see custom controls on GB games
