Can Gameboy Printer be used with Gameboy Advance?

My younger sibling recently bought a Gameboy Printer so that he could print out his Pokemon on Pokemon Gold and Yellow. However, once it came we realized that the Ext.1 port (where you plug the cord in) on the Printer was not the same as on his GBA. I have a Gameboy Link Cable (which plugged into the Printer and not the GBA) as well as a Gameboy Advance Link Cable (which plugged into his GBA but not the Printer). He is very disappointed that it is not working.

So my question is, is there any way (via a special cable, multiple cables connecting, whatever) to connect a Gameboy Advance to a Gameboy Printer without having to buy another Gameboy/Color?


According to a page about the Universal Link Cable on Nintendo’s website, when using things designed for Game Boy or Color, use the Universal Link Cable in the GBA, and it does mention the Printer too. So you’d just connect it using the Universal Link Cable.

Important Note: This cable should only be connected when you are playing two player games or when you are using the Game Boy Printer with your Game Boy Advance or Game Boy Advance SP.
