Ok, so I have a rather dumb question. I recently bought both Oracle of Ages and Seasons on the 3DS after having owned Seasons on the Gameboy. Now I've already beat Seasons, and I'm attempting to do a Linked Game. I've typed in the password, started out with the four heats and all, but I only have a level 1 Wooden Sword. I beat Seasons with the Noble Sword, and everything I'm reading says it should have transferred. So my question is this:
When playing a linked Oracle game do you automatically start with the sword you had in the game you beat, or are you given it later?
