Oh yeah Nintendo already noticed this kinda stuff last year. They actually had a press release just for people doing pictochat art. You can see it here in my journal [link] ndsart.net is where I first started showing all my pictochat art.
Yeah I did each frame. Each picture I took of the screen held 2 frames of the animation. When I first started doing these it was tough, and I only used MSpaint to crop, it was a pain. But later on I found a real gif animator and made things a lot easier, thats why I have so many.
