    ok i want to start off by saying i havent played a gameboy in about 3 years untill i found a SP at a yard sale for 10$ so im a little ignorant. my question is, if i have say pokemon blue and yellow for original gameboy plugged into 2 GBA's can i use the gba link cable and trade like normal or do i have to use 2 normal gameboys?

    I believe it will work but you'll need an original GB linker cable.

    i think i have one somewhere, i have one that i use now that is for gba/gbc. it has a switch so you can set it for gba or gbc depending on which your using, would this work if i have it switched to gbc?

    That seems as though it would work, especially since it has a GBC mode.

    Sorry but I don't think that is possible (I tried it before and doesn't work)... You need to use the old systems for the old games.

    No, with a GBC link cable it will work.

    It does work with a GBĂ‚ link cable. Not with a regular GBA one.
