Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Can you find new Pokemon if you have a specific GBA game inserted in your DS?

I read on a website (I'm pretty sure it was on Serebii) that if you have a GBA Pokemon game in your DS while you're in certain places in DPP that different Pokemon will come. Is it true, because I almost always play with my Sapphire in, and no new Pokemon came?

Now you can get an arcanine.
EDIT: if you have fire red I think.

If you put in EMERALD, I know you can get the rare pokemon that are in the special area of the Safari Zone (Pineco, Teddiursa, etc.) I'm not sure about other versions, though.

Yep, certain version-exclusive Pokemon, such as Growlithe Vulpix, Caterpie, Weedle, Mawile, Sableye, and even Shuckle, will appear if you put in their respective game!
