Default Original Gameboy Games

Okay, i'm bored and I feel like taking a nostalgic trip down memory lane. So specifically, i'm looking for games (cartridges) which can be run on my Gameboy Color. I know I can get these games in rom form another way, but nothing beats the feel of holding the Gameboy in your hand and taking you back maybe 10 years.

Currently i'm looking for Pokemon Blue/Red/Yellow/Silver/Gold/Crystal, not sure about any other games but you can send me a PM and i'll think about. One thing for sure, I don't want sports games as i've never really enjoyed them on the Gameboy.

Hopefully I can get these cheap as I doubt anyone nowadays really carries an actual Gameboy (Way too retro?). Local I guess would be best and I think it may be possible to ship the games in a letter envelope, but I can't confirm.

I have a suggestion for you, it may end up being on the more expensive end (depending on where you go). I have a buddy in fredericton that goes to the local flea market almost every weekend looking to buy old SNES and NES games and has been fairly successful in picking up games and old hardware. Look for local flea markets as they will most likely have small used games businesses selling a bunch of old games/systems as well as the odd person or two clearing out their child's old collection.

Haha, i've considered that Arinoth, i've also checked other sources but it seems that apart from Flea markets, they want to sell all their games in a package. I'm just posting here to see if anyone on HWC has this for my convenience, but i'll probably put a slight bit more effort after some time.
