Back before the DS introduced us to wireless multiplayer on a handheld, we had to connect two Gameboys together with a Link Cable if we wanted to play together! Boy do I remember having countless Pokémon battles in elementary school with these things. In fact, I’m pretty sure I went through three different Link Cables just because one I lost and one ended up with a short in it. While multiplayer Gameboy games existed before Pokémon, Red and Blue were the first games on the system to really encourage playing and trading together. In fact, you had to if you wanted to catch ‘em all. The Link Cable was even used in the games advertising. Now, we can trade and battle with people online but we’ll never forget you, Link Cable, even if you were in the dark ages of gaming.
