Has it been established whether this will have all save types available, so the saving doesn't need to be patched, and Pokemon will transfer properly to the Gamecube games and DS?

Also, once you load a game, will this look like an original cartridge, so you can use it in a DS that detects a particular GBA game inserted?

Yes, yes, and the DS can use it fully.  Not sure what you mean by detects a certain game is inserted though.

Some DS games has feature that if you have certain GBA game inserted in, it unlocks extra stuff(in the DS game that is running) or does something specif. There also was extra-ram cart for the DS browser, rumble cart and few other accessories that used the GBA slot for something gimmicky(remember the guitar hero DS game?).

maybe it will be possible to make a tool, like the one that you use with a modded transferpak on n64 to use with edgb. but i cant say if the tool need to be on the edgba or on ds =/. maybe a option to only load the game, idk...

Seems like using a hacked ds rom for the game with the options already unlocked would be the solution.  Why waste time with all that nonsense just get a 10$ r4 and play.

If I understand what people are saying, then using the Everdrive, Pokemon can transfer to the DS correctly, but the DS cannot tell that a specific GBA game is being used.  I find this very odd.  In order to transfer Pokemon, the DS has to recognize that a Pokemon game is there, and see the save file in the place that it expects to see the save file.  This seems to inherently require that the DS know what GBA game is there.  How would it even make sense for the DS to not know what GBA game is there, yet still be able to transfer Pokemon from the GBA game that it doesn't know is there?

Detecting a GBA game and transferring Pokemon are two sides of the same coin: you have to be able to put the Everdrive in such a state that to the DS--which is out of your control--the Everdrive looks like a real GBA cart.  This means that you have to have a way to select a game using a menu, load the game, and have it and its save file stay there as if it is a standard ROM and standard flash RAM, with the menu undetectable from the outside until you boot the Everdrive again.

The same applies to transferring to Gamecube, which is why I asked.  The Gamecube downloads a small program to the GBA.  This program is not under the Everdrive's control (unless somehow the Everdrive can detect and patch it), and tries to read the Everdrive as if it is a normal GBA with a normal ROM and save.  If the Everdrive doesn't look exactly like a normal GBA cart including the save, this will fail.

That's why the EZ Flash IV can't transfer Pokemon to DS or Gamecube--transfering Pokemon is an edge case where the ability of the cart to act like a real one is most important.

Krikzz put up preorders! I got my order in, oddly enough Stone Age Gamer was pretty much the same price, but I like Krikzz and would rather give him the $$$ directly.

Now I think I'll probably try ordering the ever drive GBA from the krikzz site but before that...

Krikzz is from Ukraine if I'm not mistaken, that cool and all but which region of Ukraine is he from? That may matter because of the conflict.

Nobody has had any issues obtaining a  Everdrive yet?

To my knowledge, he should be in western Ukraine, if i'm not mistaken. :)

He's posted about it before, just don't remember the name of the topic.

The conflict has been limited to eastern side and K is from western side.  He is fine unless the trouble moves across the country.

Krikzz is from the North East, not quite in the conflict area, but not far!

Okay, Krikzz is at least for now in a safe place. Is there anywhere where ever drives can't be shipped to? There is a list at the shipping info page showing estimations on how much time it'd take to reach certain destinations, and another list showing where postage tracking is supported. If your country isn't on any of the lists it just means there is no estimation on when it will arive and you can't track it?
