Getting physical Game Boy save games onto computer for hack use

My Gold hack will have enough in common with the original Gold version to be compatible with save games form other Gold/Silver ROMs. Since I plan on doing a multiplayer tournament after I finish my hack (an emulator called BGB 1.2 has a very nice link function), I want to know if it's possible to somehow get Pokemon off of our physical Game Boy cartridges (we all have Gold or Silver versions with level 100 Pokemon on them) into a .sav file for use with our emulators. Apparently there was a Gameshark with this function, I can't find any info on it. Any ideas? Otherwise we'll just have to 'shark them in, which is tedious.

If anyone can link me to a good save game editor, that would be cool too.

Hmm, that would work I suppose. Tedious but not too bad I guess.

InterAct made a “Mega Memory Card” for the Game Boy Color that could back up saves from different Game Boy cartridges. I don’t think it could connect them to a computer, though.

I have a Game Boy flash cart and flash reader/writer, which can write ROMs and save games to the flash cart and read saves from any cart. It was fairly expensive (about $100), and the guy who sold it no longer makes them. But you can find similar equipment online.
