Dark Paladin:
Game Editor does not compile games for Game Boy or Game Boy Advance. In order to create for the Game Boy, you need to have a skill development kit (SDk) designed specifically for the Game Boy platform. On top of that, you need to have some sound knowledge of 'C++' Programming.

Below are some links for you to try. I don't know how good the programming products are. I don't program in 'C++'. I can tell you that I am unaware of any authoring system such as Game Editor that will make Game Boy Programming easier. However, MaKslane is adding to the list of machine specific compilers so he may support Game Boy in the future. You should give game Editor a try. It is unique among authoring systems.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I'm not talking about making a gameboy game I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to make a game similar to the pokemon games on gameboy.

It is possible.

You have a main actor. A scrolling map. Other actors to interact with etc. Wouldn't be too tricky...

Build your main character:

For this you will need to make 16 animations.

An animation of your character walking North, South, East West, North East etc.

You will also need an animation of the character standing still facing all direction.

May I recommend that you keep it simple. A general template so that you can easily make variations for new characters. For example, a hat wearing one. One with wings. One with a beard....

If you want to make your life easier. Don't use diagonal directions. This halves your workload.

Get the size right from the start. Use something like Photoshop to make a demo picture of how big you want the character to be on the screen against a background.

This is an interesting project.... Good Luck! :)
