Gameboy Advance Link Cable?....  
ok guys, so i just put a (probably used) GBA Link Cable on hold at Gamestop after calling all around my city for either a wireless adapter or (by some miracle) a GBA to GC Link cable(which took MAJOR courage for me to do since i'm scared of calling stores by myself -_-').

Now, i haven't seen it up front yet and the store girl seemed a bit rushed on the phone, so i didnt get to ask a question that popped in my head (but she sounded new so i dont think she wouldve known anyway).

So i was hoping you guys can help me out(:
Now, i dont own any Gameboy Advances per-say, but i do have 2 Gameboy Advance Sp's.
i want to trade between my FireRed and Emerald so, do you guys know if the GBA link cable will work with the GBA SP?, or should i just call back and take it off hold and search elsewhere?

it's only for .99 cents so i dont think it'd be too much of a bad buy(?)

Yep, it does. I use it on the SPs all the time.

Howait. You know. GameStops should still sell the GBA > GC units... That's weird you couldn't find one. ;\

really? ive never used a physical link cable since my Gameboy color days so bear with me :P

there's no difference between the GBA ports and the GBA SP's?

oh and ya i know, well the 7 Gamestops i called said thats a rare item to find and my best shot would be to get it online or at the online nintendo store.

Nope, no difference. Basically, the SP is just a nice little upgraded version of the GBA, with all the bells and whistles of the previous unit.

Wow, that's pretty amazing. I wish I could just hand you mine, I have like, three. XD But I hope you find one in the future!

well wow ^-^ then i'm glad i was able to find ONE store in town that at least had the cable :P

i wish you could too! xD at this rate i'll never get my poor Lugia outta that Gamecube >.>

it just worries me since my GC memory Cube(card) has corrupted more than once and deleted my save file TT_TT and, as much as i love Pkmn XD: GoD, i dont wanna play it a third time!

Yeah, it's great, and at times, better than a GBA by itself. It's perfect for playing on the GameCube, too, since it's got the backlight and you could technically play a game in the dark. /plays the crap out of FFCC

Oh, that's why you need it? Oh dang, I totally feel for you. ;-; Hopefully it hasn't done that, either. /sprinkles sleep luck powder on you!

haha i remember the days i would play all night straight (it gets kinda creepy around a quiet house, with only the bigscreen tv's light on, ESPECIALLY if you're at the Wacked out Professor's Mansion O.o) i'd actually get scarred cuz of the music and lighting xD

and ya, idk about you, but it kinda makes me cry a little inside when i put 200+ hrs into the game and its all of a sudden gone. I get emotionally attached to my pixels, especially since they actually move in Pkmn XD: GoD! they seemed alive, and then they just...died :(

wow...i'm weird xD
but yes, thank you for your answer!
it's put my fears at ease, eps. since i have to have my mom drive me almost 1/2 way across town to get it O.o

Thats so weird, I thought they were common. I have three or four of them somewhere. Though two are like off brand cheapies....
