One of the wireless adapter's greatest uses is in Pokémon FireRed, Pokémon LeafGreen, and Pokémon Emerald. While all three still support the Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable, up to thirty-nine wireless adapter-connected players can convene in a virtual in-game lobby called the "Union Room" for battles and trades. The wireless adapter is also used in Pokémon games to download special data via the Mystery Gift option at various Pokémon-related events. Besides the Union Room in certain Pokémon versions, the wireless adapter only supports up to five players.
A major drawback of the Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter is that it is not backwards compatible; that is, it will only work with games that have been programmed to support the wireless adapter. As of April 2007, only about twenty Game Boy Advance games support the wireless adapter, many of the supported games are those in the Classic NES Series.
There are some third-party devices that use the wireless functionality but act more like a link cable.
