Question for Pokemon Crystal

I heard a complaint from crystal.I have one too.Can you believe that in my Crystal,Gold,Blue,and Red version it doesn't allow me to trade with them.

Okay,I use a gameboyadvance SP and Gameboyplayer to try and trade but every single time it says on one of the game paks "your friend is not ready" and on another game pak it says"your friend is inactivity" and the game paks sense each other because it only saves on one of the game paks,but like on my gold version for instance it says "would you like to trade" and then skips the saving and goes right to "please wait".

Guess what,doesn't work on the colleseum and time machine.Same thing happens.Don't say are you in the same town because on Crystal and Gold on both versions I was in Cherrygrove city and the same thing happened.I also tried to trade with my friends Silver version with two gameboyadvanceSP and even without using the Gameboyplayer it still said the same thing.

My friend said that he was able to trade with a regular Gameboyadvance and Gameboycolor and it worked.Anyways,am I doing something wrong?Sure doesn't look like it!I tried different combinations with my old Pokemon game paks and it still didn't work.

How come I am able to trade,battle,and mix records with my Pokemon Ruby and Saphire?Huh?I don't think I should've bought these old Pokemon games.

Apart from you buying dodgy games, the only thing I can think of that might be causing your problem is your cable.

Your link cable may be faulty like mine was. It usually happens after you've had it a long time or leave it coiled up somewhere.

Storing it when it's all twisted causes the wires inside to become bent and faulty and stop your link from working.

It might be worth your while to go out and purchase a new gameboy link. Hope this helps!

Simple! You're not supposed to use the Game Boy Advance Cable, but you still have to use the primitive Gane Boy Pocket cable (the one you would use for Game Boy Color consoles)!

Yes, you are permitted to trade from Crystal to any other version except Ruby and Sapphire.

If you have Pokémon that do not appear in Red, Blue, or Yellow, or if your Pokémon have moves that are not used in those games.

Take them out of your party when you go to trade with your Red, Blue, and Yellow cartridges via the Time Machine.

Look over this carefully and try it before you give me another bogus report.

I'm already in a bad mood!

Maybe your cable isn't in all the way.
