    So, I own a couple Game boys, and I was wondering, since I have Pokemon Blue (EU version) and Pocket Monsters Silver (the japanese version). Can I trade pkmn from the EU version to the JP version and vice-versa?

    I can't try myself, since I currently only own 1 working GB (the other one broke last night for some reason :( ). I was going to get a new one, IF it worked like that.

    You can't link them (AFAIK). Japanese pokemon games (until gen IV I believe) can only link with other japanese games, while eu <-> us games can link without any problem.

    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    I think I read somewhere once that the japanes symbols crash american games. Wow, my source seems really shady. "Think I read somewhere".

    my dad works for nintendo.
    you can't trade them.

    you can trade a french with a english one for example, but not japansese with english.

    make some research before saying "pretty sure".

    You can make a successful trade but the japanese one will crash afterwords, make some research before shoving bulbapedia to my face.

    behind a keyboard or a gamepad
    that's why emulators exist, just try connecting a usa pkmn game with a jap one on tgbdual to be absolutely sure.
