    Chapter I: General Information
    What is this "Send" thing?
          -"Send" is a secret option on the Golden Sun main menu which, when
    accessed, can transfer information such as party member levels, Djinn
    collected, items collected, and gold amassed from a (Clear Data) file in Golden
    Sun to its sequel, Golden Sun: The Lost Age.
    Why is it important?
          -As stated before, utilizing this option will help an immense amount when
    Isaac and his party join forces with Felix's party (slightly after the Jupiter
    Lighthouse). All information transferred through either the password or cable
    option(more on that later) will be put into effect, and Isaac's party in TLA
    will "mirror" the one transferred from GS with respect to levels, items, etc.
    If information is not transferred from GS, Isaac and his party come with
    sub-par equipment and very few Djinn, as well below-average levels(around 28).
    Why would ANYONE want that?
          -If you want to know the exact base stats for each party member without
    transferring, then read below(contributed by theslayerbob):
    Do I need it for The Lost Age?
          -Transferring data is not essential for completing TLA, but certain
    sidequests, such as a VERY difficult battle with a monster/boss named Dullahan,
    are only available with a certain number of Djinn or items. The mystery blade
          *Vital Items for The Lost Age*
                    -The following item(s) will NOT appear in TLA, and must be
    carried over from GS in order to complete certain events:
                    *Force Orb
          *Vital Events for The Lost Age*
                    -In order to obtain certain "Golden Items" or Multi-elemental
    summons, the following events must be completed in GS:
                    *Beat Colosso--the combatants will challenge you again in TLA.
    If you win, you will receive a Gold Item
                    *Save Hsu--If Feizi's brother is saved from being killed by a
    boulder in GS, you will earn yet another Gold Item
                    *Return to Vault--There, you will learn from the mayor that the
    thieves have escaped from jail. They will return to challenge you in TLA
    How do I access it?
          -It is a relatively simple procedure. First, you MUST have a (Clear Data)
    file saved in one of your save file slots. Without the clear file, none of the
    following procedure will work. Next, go to the Main Menu (New, Continue, Erase,
    Battle) and do the following:
                    *Hold Left on the Directional Pad and the "R" shoulder button
                    *Press the "B" button once while holding Left and R
                    *KEEP HOLDING Left and R
          An icon with a picture of an envelope should appear to the extreme right
    of the menu bar. Congratulations, you have accessed the "Send" option!
          There is another way to find the option without going through all of the
    procedure above. At the title screen (When "Press Start" is displayed) simply
    hold Left on the directional pad and the R shoulder button while pressing
    start. When you reach the main menu, the send option should appear.
    Chapter II: The Specifics
    The Methods-There are two methods of transferring data from GS to TLA: Cable
    Link and Password.
                -Cable: This is almost self-explanatory. This option requires TWO
    GAME BOY ADVANCES with GS in one and TLA in the other. ALL data from GS(Party
    Levels, Djinn, Items, and Gold) will be transferred via a link cable (sold
    separately :)) to the GS2 cartridge. Short and quick, it's the easiest way to
    transfer information.
                -Password (a.k.a. "Sweet Lord! Where did THAT come from???"): This
    is the bane of any person afflicted with carpal tunnel syndrome, as it brings
    up many, many screens filled with crazy characters and weird columns. There are
    three levels of Password depth: Gold, Silver, and Bronze
    *Password Levels*
                      *BRONZE: This is the basic of the basics. The information
    transferred with the Bronze password includes only Levels of party members and
    Djinn obtained. This level yields around 16 characters of code(i.e. letters,
    numbers, symbols and the like), and is the easiest of the three levels to
                      *SILVER: This is a bit more complex than the Bronze level; It
    transfers party levels, djinn, and character stats(the individual statuses of
    each character, i.e. Attack, Defense, etc...). This level yields roughly 61
    characters of code.
                      *GOLD: The mother of all passwords, this sucker will keep you
    hunched over your GBA for quite a while. It is the deepest level of password,
    as it transfers levels, djinn, character stats, items(this DOES NOT include
    artifacts in stores), and coins. This password level yields an astounding 260
    characters of code.
    *Inputting Passwords Into GS:TLA*
                -When starting a new game of The Lost Age, you will be asked if you
    wish to transfer data from the original GS. If Yes is chosen, you will be
    prompted for a method of transmission. If you choose cable, you will easily
    transfer data from GS to TLA and begin your game. If password is chosen, you
    will be prompted for the level of password that you wish to use(Bronze, Silver,
    Gold). The password screen will then come up, which slightly resembles the
    input name screen from GS. I believe the password is inputted in rows, not
    Chapter III: Password Archive
    The following is a comprehensive list of passwords submitted by fellow GameFAQs
    members. Each password is presented exactly as it appears in Golden Sun on the
    password screen. Information such as names, levels, djinn collected, and gold
    is also presented. Please, if you want a challenge, do not choose insanely
    powerful files. Level 40-50 should do very well for clearing TLA, or can at
    least be a start. If you frankly don't care if the later game is a breeze, or
    had the misfortune of having a powerful file erased, go ahead and use them.
    EACH PASSWORD IS CASE SENSITIVE. That means that if the password calls for an
    "S" and you input an "s" the password will be altered.
    Not all passwords are 100% guaranteed. As I have yet to test them all out, I
    would appreciate it if anyone who spots a defective password notifies me in
    some way. Password entries with an asterisk (*) are confirmed.
    Have fun!

    Chapter IV: Special Thanks
    -First of all, I would like to thank all of the posters on the GameFAQs, who
    helped answer some questions for me concerning "Send," and those others who
    asked the same question so many times that I decided to make an FAQ on it.
    -Among them, the following deserve the most credit:
          -All the people who contributed passwords to the archive. It took guts to
    write all that! Your names are beside your contributions.
          -SupahFlySamurai for giving me the idea of a password archive, among
    many, many other things.
          -theslayerbob for providing me with information needed concerning TLA and
    the results of not transferring data.
          -Aspartate for informing me of the items recommended to bring to TLA
          -CJayC, of course (If I don't include him, this might not be here!)
