|                        What is the Transfer Pak?                           |

The Transfer Pak is a device that was made for the Nintendo 64 that would allow
you to "Transfer" game data of select Game Boy and Game Boy Color games to the
corresponding N64 game. (See the list below)

Part of the Pak has a slot for the Game Boy game and the other part fits into
the expansion port of the N64 controller. You can't play the Game Boy game
straight of this pak except in the case of Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium
2 which would allow you to play Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, or
Sapphire in the Game Boy Tower.

It is often said that the Transfer Pak is the predecessor to the Gamecube-Game
Boy Advance Cable.

Originally it was bundled in with Pokémon Stadium. But since there aren't any
new copies of this around anymore, you should try any used game store for used

Any compatible game will have a transfer pak logo located on the cover. This is
my current list of any game that is compatible with the Transfer Pak.

|                          What does it look like?                           |

When shopping for the pak, look for something that looks like this.


If you are unsure how to place the pak into the controller. Here is a simple
picture showing the correct direction to place it in.

|                             Troubleshooting                                |

The N64 isn't recognizing that a game is in the pak or is not working in

-Test out the game in a Game Boy to see if it even works, and if it doesn't
then the problem is with the game not the pak.

-Make sure the controller is in slot 1.

-Try it out with another controller because it might be the controller.

Q: Where can I get this?
A: It was originally bundled with Pokemon Stadium. But since finding a sealed
copy is almost absolute, you got to look for a used pak. Most used games stores
should carry this but you can always resort to eBay.

You can also purchase it straight from Nintendo, for only $19.99, check their
website for details.

Q: Any chance of a new transfer pak?
A: Yes, there's already one out for the Gamecube and Game Boy Advance and I
would imagine one would come out for the DS and Wii.
