Linking two Game Boy Color (GBC) systems allows you to battle against your friends in "Pokemon: Yellow Version" and take turns beating levels in "Super Mario Brothers Deluxe." To complete "Pokemon" and other titles, you must link two systems to exchange data with another cartridge. Two Game Boy Color emulators feature linking support: BGB and TGB Dual. Both of these emulators allow you to play and link most Game Boy Color titles. To emulate the Game Boy Color's link feature, you will need to download one of these two programs.
