Well I have a GBA SP, with Pokemon Fire Red, Leaf Green, and Emerald. I want to use Colosseum to help the training process go faster.

Is it possible to make a backup of my friends copy of Pokemon Colosseum and then buy a Classic Controller, Gamecube Memory Card, and A Trading Cable and have it all work the same way it does on a GC? Because that would make my life a lot easier.
