does this work for GBC games ?
« on: September 15, 2021, 09:14 PM »
Hello, I am trying to solve a problem and i needed to collect some info.


Can a GB ever-drive run Pokemon yellow?
Can a GB ever drive emulating pokemon blue trade with a normal copy of the game?
Can this run on a gamecube ?

Which verison of everdrive gb should i get if i just want to trade pokemon to an original cart?

Yes, all Everdrive GB versions, even the oldest ones (before the X-versions) can run the first Pokemon generation (red, green, blue and yellow).

Yes, trading with another Gameboy is not a problem no matter if both carts are real or flashcarts. It's not really emulation, the game runs on the Gameboy not on the cart, so there is no difference from the real cart once it's running thus trading works.

Yes, all Everdrive GB versions works on the SGB and the Gameboy Player.

Any Everdrive GB should work for trading.
Only the N64 Transfer Pak is a problem and none of the Everdrives works with that since they all boot from a master menu.
For Pokemon Gold, Silver Crystal you need the X7 because of the RTC. These games should at least boot on any Everdrive GB though so trading probably works but I'm not sure what the consequences are, and the games are not really enjoyable without the RTC.

Given the new games need a working clock ,I dont think they can since trading requires ingame saves. I noticed the x3 model for pretty cheap along with the x5, but again pokemon requires working ingame saving so im not sure if they could trade.

As for the n64 transfer pak issue, cant that be fixed if the everdrive trades to a legit copy of the game then move it to there?

The X3 does support in-game saves, the difference between the X3 and the X5/7 in that regard is the fact that you need to return to the everdrive menu by pressing the button in the cartridge in order to trigger writing the savegame to the cartridge.

If it didn't even support normal saving it wouldn't be much use of a flashcart. I think trading works even with 2nd gen. If you just use the Everdrive GB as a means to trade to/from a second save file the RTC might not matter. You don't even need to return to the Everdrive menu to save the changes on X3 after a trade, unless you want to prevent duplicating the monster you are trading. But I haven't tried it myself and can't confirm it.

If you have the real cart and the ability to dump and restore the SRAM you can move the save file you want to appear in Stadium to your real cart and use that with the Transfer Pak. Trading is only good for maybe one or two monsters in Pokemon, but you can't trade things like items which can also be stored in Pokemon Stadium, and there are other games using the Transfer Pak which won't work.

I am just trying to add custom pokemon to my everdrive copy of pokemon stadium. I am trying to find the cheapest way to do this, and I thought using a GB everdrive as a middle man of sorts may work, as i dislike the movesets of rentals with a great passion.

Ok in that case trading might be the easiest solution.
