    I traded and battled constantly with friends and kids from school. The school let us have Gameboys on the bus, so it was a routine bus activity. Everyone would rush to get trades done before the bus got to school, and there'd be anywhere from 1-5 cables linked across the isle... Kids would dare to yank the cable out, risking your save file, but they rarely did because they knew they'd be raged at by a lot of people.

    I had a couple friends and my cousin who had the 1st Gen games. Gen 2 was when a lot more people I knew got there GBC's so the trading scene at my school increased around that time.

    Quite a bit actually. I went to a friends house all the time and he and his brother owned a link cable. We used to trade pokemon and battle all the time. It was pretty fun. His parents would let him invite a few people over and we would have mini pokemon tournaments from time to time.

    I never traded/battled in the 1st gen, except one time I remember. I had Yellow and a friend had Red, so I traded him my Pikachu so he could evolve it and then trade it back. I immediately regretted it when I realised it didn't follow you around still.

    We would trade and battle all the time with a few friends when we were all still just kids. A friend of mine owned a link cable back then which was super hard to get here at the time. I remember how jealous I was of him because of that lol. Ah, those were some good times.

    The link cables were highly unreliable, but I traded regardless to complete the Pokedex. Trying to battle was a nightmare.

    Cables were easy to get...

    I remember trading and battling with my brothers and some of my cousins. Mostly starters and version exclusives.

    Yeah I had a cable as a kid and I would always battle and trade with my cousins and friends on our copies of Blue/Red. Those were the days haha.

    I've never tried using connections with my Gameboy yet. All I do is to play casually without battling locally/trading.

    I only have one game, no one has any of the old games now sadly. So no trading for me.
    The world needs more weird people who know how things work and who love to figure it all out.
    Being different is not a crime, and people who tell you it is are just jealous that you've picked up a skill they never in their wildest dreams could acquire.
    You can code. They cannot. That is pretty dang cool.

    I battled my cousin once when he got a link cable but I lost becuz my pokemon were too weak lol. I never got a chance to have a rematch or to trade pokemon.

    I battled another person once or twice, but never traded with anybody. I think I won the times I did battle in the first gen.
