These GAMEFREAK people really have a humungus imagination. it was just last year I found out pokemon names are based on people,things,plants,etc.

I guess this is a great game after all. WOW! 40 poeple. for a computer, that's nothing,but for a gba, impressive!!!!! I can trade with any one now!!!

There is one downfall to this game............... :(
the $$$$. It's packaged with a wireless linkcable,so must cost $30-$40 bucks
So save up pokemon fans!!!!!!!!!

It's like a game link cable without the cable. It's like wireless phones. It just has to be fairly close to other wireless link cables. I think, anyway. Don't know a whole lot about them.

That would be soooo funny.... people wouldn't be able to move because the room was completely filled up... or maybe there is more than 40 blocks of walking space in the room. Anyway, somebody would have to go out of range and "dissappear"

yeah, its pretty amazing for 40 people within 30 feet. i've tired inviting all my friends to do it but it just didn't work out, the most we've got to is 13. i agree it would be cool if the room is filled up and no one can move, but i think nintendo would watchout for that.

Have you noticed that when you mix records with other people in Ruby/Sapphire and go the their secret base they have different sprites??? The sprite assigned is related to the ID number of the trainer, and I think that FRLG uses the same system in order to assing different sprites to all the poeple in the chat room.
This link will explain things a little better http://pokefor.greenchu.de/meowth346/tools/id/

Actually, the Union Room can only fit about 10 or so people. I've checked the room in EliteMap, and it fits a small number of people. I am yet to comfirm the number, but unless FRLG can maniuplate events, I doubt there can even be 20 people in the Union Room. And I think the distance is actually 10 metres (about 39 feet).

Game Boy Advance Users May Go Wireless
Nintendo unveils wireless device that allows users to play each other without cables.
September 26, 2003: 7:07 AM EDT MAKUHARI, Japan (Reuters) - Japanese video game company Nintendo Co. Ltd said Friday it plans early next year to offer a device that allows GameBoy Advance users to play games together without the use of cables.
The device will be included free of charge with the purchase of one of two "Pokemon" games, due to be released early next year, for Nintendo's hand-held game machine.
"We've had a lot of discussions about how to extend the networking capabilities for games such as 'Pokemon', to enhance head-to-head battles, exchange of information and communication with others," said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata in a speech on the opening day of the Tokyo Game Show.
The wireless module will be bundled with Nintendo's "Pokemon Fire Red" and "Pokemon Leaf Green" titles for GameBoy Advance that will go on sale in Japan early next year. The games will sell for 4,800, or $43.
Nintendo said it planned to roll out other titles for the GameBoy Advance compatible with the device in the future.
Motorola Inc (MOT :Research ,Estimates ). designed the chip that powers the device's wireless functions.
"It was designed primarily with the gaming experience in mind," Bridgette Cosentino, director of wireless connectivity at Motorola's semiconductor products group, told Reuters. She said the chip was customized to maximize battery life.
Iwata said the technology was similar to Bluetooth, which allows devices to communicate with each other without a physical wire connection. The wireless network extends for "several meters," Iwata said.
The most recent "Pokemon" title for GameBoy Advance sold over 10 million titles worldwide, Nintendo said.
Shares in Nintendo ended up 2.33 percent at 9,670 compared to a 0.08 percent rise in the Nikkei 225 average.
