Yeah, I know this has no relevance towards the overall gameplay of Pokémon here, not until September at least, but I'll post it anyways. If it needs to me moved, do so.

Well, we all know that NoA is bringing out Crystal here for sure. As for the online battling, it's a different story.

In Japan, most internet users use cellular phones, not computers as most of us here do.
That's one of the big reasons why it's doing so well in Japan.

But for us in America, only businesspeople have that kind of technology, and parents will be *really* wary when it comes to letting their kids own a cellphone. Then one day, while looking at a picture of a Mobile Adapter, I thought of something.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't the other end(the cell phone plug) a USB port? Could this mean a way for all to battle in September?

To those who can understand what I'm talking about.....what's your point of view?

Hm, could be but wouldn't it be easier to have something that plugs into the phone line and in englane 50% of children own a mobile phone but the are all diferent makes and the adaptor wouldn't work...

I think they should do a universal port. It could have USB and a phone jack. That way, it could plug into the phone line at your house, your computer, or (if this is true) plug into your Cell with the USB.

Well, it wouldn't be hard to do an internet link up right now, honestly, it would just be a chunk O' work.

Anyway, my guess is that they will either knock out the whole thing or make it available over the Internet... The cellular net idea is pretty much out of the question here.

Nintendo's already commented on a service for "Crystal battling". I don't know if it pertains to Canada, or just USA, though, or if it will reach to Australia as well, etc., as little has been said on the matter.

There's already a device that will link your Game Boy to your PC.

The newest version of Gameshark comes with a special link cable that fits into your PC, mostly for transferring codes with.

Someone who can properly program the parallel port can make it so that link battles can be played over the internet.

Even though we know that Nintendo will allow online battling, how is the question. The best way for us here in America, would be through the PC, either connecting the MA to your USB port, or as PoKamek said, through a device that will connect to a parallel port.

I've also done some small reasearch on i-moding, the Cellular Internet System in Japan. There, it's popular, since it's cheaper than a regular phone call. Only 650,000 Japanese families own a PC with internet access. Because of this function in Japan, it is simple and cost effective. It is also very fast loading, with the cell phones using a 9.8 kbps modem.

So, let's look at this carefully: In order for one to get the Net Battling to successfully work here would be a 9.8 kbps modem or higher, and possibly a 486 as a minimum.

NoA will probably be a bit more successful with this. Why? If you allow your GB to hook up to your PC to battle, you may have the time limit, but it wouldn't cost a dime.

Problem is, if this is NoA's plan, they will not only fabricate the idea, but they would have to re-configure the process of logging on to Nintendo's server. (I'm not 100% sure on this, for one may be able to log in with their ISP first, then access Nintendo's server..)

That's my semi-responded view on this....
