    Okay, a lot of people have not been using the Official Help Threads if it doesn't fit exactly into one generation, so that's what this thread is for. Use this thread for questions that have to do with cross-game things or things that relate to more than one game. Do NOT use this thread for things that only affect one group (RSE, FrLg, or ColoXD), things that don't have anything to do with the 3rd generation, or things that already have their own specific threads for them. If it belongs in any of the following threads, do not post it here
    General Game Help
    Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald help
    Fire Red and Leaf Green help
    Colosseum and XD help

    Specific Game Help for specific games
    Contest Help (RSE)
    Battle Frontier Help (Emerald)

    Hi, I am having trouble trading Pokemon from my Pokemon Emerald to FireRed, and vice-versa (yes, I've done the Sevii Island quests). I am using a GBA and a GBA SP to trade between them. I am using a link cable with two slim-fat end. The problem is after I select the options, it keeps saying "Please wait... B Button to Cancel."

    Any suggestions on a new cable or troubleshooting will be helpful; thanks!

    Oops double post.
     
  5. Do the tips on your link cable look like this:

    [IMG200]http://www.yyyescable.com/images/Product/PRODUCTPIC/BIG/GAME/gameboy/GBA-2P-LINK-CABLE-W-PORT.jpg[/IMG200]

    Or do they look like this:

    [IMG200]http://www.yyyescable.com/images/Product/PRODUCTPIC/BIG/GAME/gameboy/GBA-GBC-4P-LINK-CABLE.jpg[/IMG200]

    If it looks like the second image, that is why it isn't working: You're using an old-school gameboy link cable and you need to purchase a GBA link cable, which is like the first picture.

    My link cable looks like the second image you posted. Do you know if GameStop has any of the ones in the first image still in retail?
     
  7. They may have them, or you may be able to find it at a flea market with a used video game store. You won't be able to find them new anymore though.

    Alright, I've been having this problem with my Ruby and Leafgreen. When I started it up, just after the title screen, a box opened and said "The save file has been deleted..." Needless to say, I'm very ticked off. How can I fix this?

    Are they legit games? Are the carts colored, is Ruby a sparkly red color and LeafGreen a light green? Does it say Nintendo anywhere on the game or during the intro?

    Yes, of course they are. Everything is legit about them; they are not fake.

    I tried looking through the site to find whether synchronizers affect natures in FR/LG, but I couldn't find any info. Does anyone know if they do, or was that only brought in for emerald?

    1.) Is the Gender of an egg Pokémon determined when the Egg is created or when you pick it up?
    2.) Can a Male Pokémon breed with a Ditto to make female offspring?
    3.) Can Treecko have both Crunch and Leech Seed on the same moveset?

    Thanks :)

    1) I really don't remember. All I know is some values are determined when it is created and the rest are determined when it's picked up. I think gender is determined when it's created, but I would test that to be sure.
    2) Yes, as long as it's not Tauros/Hitmons/other Pokemon that are only male.
    3) Not in 3rd gen (I didn't check 4th so I don't know, but this isn't 4th anyway so.. yeah).

    Since Ellie couldn't answer it, I will, and it's determined when it's created.

    ^ Cool, thanks a lot Ellie and starliteevee. It's just that I can't seem to get a Female Treecko... Probably because I saved after the egg was made and SR'd. Wasted time is wasted... -_- Thanks anyway :)
