You know that some older game link cables have two plugs on one end, right? That fact allows two on one linking using the Red and Blue versions. You already know that two games of different languages can't trade properly so I don't need to go over that here. You can discuss that in one of my other topics though.

*WARNINGS*
1. Only works on RED and BLUE versions. (Not Yellow OR Gold, Green, Silver and Crystal!)
2. You will lose one of the two traded pokemon on the split end of the cable because two pokemon can never be in the same slot.
3. Battling using this is very glitchy for the same reason.
4. The pokemon on the single end will be cloned onto both games.
5. There is NO WAY to tell which of the pokemon on the split end will disappear!
This basically means that you should not have rare pokemon with you.

Here's the steps for doing it:
1. Make sure you have two gameboy pockets or newer and one old gameboy
2. Put a pokemon red or blue game in each system
3. Turn them ALL on at the SAME TIME
4. Go to the trading person in any pokemon center, don't talk to her yet
5. Press A rapidly in ALL games at the SAME TIME
6. If done correctly all three games will be in the trading room
7. Talk to the computer in the room in ALL games at the SAME TIME
8. If you are in the trading menu (or battle) in every game, you have done the trick correctly

Notes: I DO NOT reccomend battling this way because it is extremely glitchy! Trading is ok. No non-pokemon game has been tested. I do suspect that at least ONE other gameboy game can do this only because there are so many games out there.

I have both that cable (You get them in the box when you buy a Game Boy Printer) and a Gamester one with four plugs on it. (Two at each end, one for Pocket/Color ports and the other for Classic ports.)

I'm wondering if the 4way cable has the same effect. Presumably, the one that does get lost in the 3way trade will end up at one of the other Game Boys.
