      I bought it from a local games store, they sell old (and new) games, they're pretty big in my city, even host gaming events (MTG card games, smash parties, etc). I wanted a physical copy and I don't trust ebay. Even prices on ebay are similar (and more expensive).

      I've bought from them before and never had issues. I obviously checked the cartridge and it's fine. And if it's not than they'll let me return it.

                the game was just fricked up then. these kind of fake copies were absolutely not a widespread thing back then. the only issue here is that the store employees only checked to see if it worked, not if you could beat the whole game, and that's really not their fault for not playing all the way through a long rpg.

        No clue what to do. Watched videos of people doing it. Nothing happens when I do it. I don't get any option to delete the save. Loaded up the guy's save and he doesn't have any good pokemon to transfer so IDGAF about just deleting it.

        Yeah no idea what to do. The game straight up wont let me delete the save and there is no option to just save over the old save for whatever demented reason (thanks Nintendo).

        I dunno. Guess I'll just go there tomorrow and make one of the guys there figure it out or give me my money back. Not a big deal.

If they sold fake shit nobody would shop there and I've bought used games from them before (not anywhere near this expensive though).

      It’s pretty much what you’d expect for a Pokémon game, and it’s overall really good. It does lack some features from previous games (no full Battle Frontier from Emerald and Platinum/HGSS, contests, secret bases, game corner), but there’s still plenty of cool new stuff added and changed, like TMs actually being reusable, Pokéstar Studios (a mini-game feature like contests where you make movies and battle weird non-Pokémon foes), Pokémon World Tournament (basically Battle Tower but you get to fight every past gym leader and champion), a season cycle that does effect the overworld in some areas (changes every month irl), and a few other things. Since it’s a direct sequel to Black 1, you should at least read a summary of that game’s plot so you won’t be too confused on things from the previous game being referenced.

      There's evidently some rumors that they might be adding the gameboy games to NSO soon, and then possibly the GBA games later. Problem with anything after that is that they are all on DS consoles and thus require two screens. You can say that BDSP solved this issue, but they really didn't because those aren't the same games. If they had to rework all the touch features on the later games, they'd probably just rather do a BDSP style remake for those games. And of course there are also rumors going around of a new unova game, either remake or new entry altogether, but obviously nothing is known yet.

    If you were going to spend real money on the game you should have gotten a reproduction cart. They are a fraction of the price and work on real hardware without modding. Also with games this old you have to take into account that bitrot might actually be real issue.

    Actually moronic how posters here insist OP's copy is a fake. You all need to go outside and learn how the world works. Stores have return policies. He bought a used game. Do you know what that means? That the store purchased it from someone else second hand with real money. So, in order to turn a profit, they will check its authenticity in order to not lose money themselves. OP is covered no matter what and it's highly likely the cart is real.

    Pokemon games are investments and will continue to go up in price in the future. The demand stays high, fewer copies will be in circulation due to collectors.

      I once bought a copy of banjo kazooie from a retro game store. It was a legitimate copy of the game, and I'm sure it was probably functional. You know what happened though? It was specifically an Australian copy of the game. I live in the middle of america. The way region locking on the N64 worked was that the game could not physically fit into a console from a different region. Region locking on the N64 has tabs on both the cartridge and the console that were not compatible. So in your moronic scenario, this means that they either didn't test the game at all, or that I'm supposed to believe that some random retro video game store was actively testing literally all of their turn in games on an Australian N64 console in the middle of Iowa. They also refused to take the cartridge back when I told them what happened, which they refused to do. You wanna know why?

      It was because they said wouldn't be able to resell it to anyone else.

            Good job. Keeping a physical library of your games is smart. Your collection will only go up in value as time passes on.

                All of the ambassador games? I thought a some of them stayed exclusive. Also it still has the serial code on it. The serial code was used to tell nintendo when you bought the console, so if there's still a way to verify that, then I guess there's that.

                Not that there's anyone who wants to buy a heavily used 3DS that's 13 years old outside of collector purposes.

      I did get the pokemon games at around the time they came out though, they may of shot up in value but a lot of the games I bought around the time they came out are worthless. I'd rather pirate than gamble that something might be worth something in the future especially that physical games are on the way out.

      You can game anything this way as long as you have enough people buying in to it. Starfox Zero was one of the last first party nintendo games released for the Wii U and walmart and target were selling copies of it for like 5 years after the wii u was discontinued because nobody cared about it. You could sell this starfox game as being rare because nobody bought it, and if you had enough other people who own the game buying in to this, you could artificially drive up the price.

      Thing is though, pokemon sells well on its own, and those games have almost never been made available again after the next ones came out. The only time that pokemon has ever made a game available for purchase again after it was originally discontinued was with Red and Blue, and Gold and Silver, and that's also mostly because those games both remade, and even at that time the REMAKES were no longer available.

    Since the thread is kinda dead and I'm bored I just want to share a short story of my time working retail in a game store. I've seen the craziest rare games from customers pass me by. I'm up to date what most games are worth but I liked to let some slip for humble shoppers and not buy everything up myself. Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness for example, came in once for 10€ and was resold for 20-30€ to a regular customer. This game is worth a couple hundred bucks.
    The craziest thing I've snagged for myself in all my years working there was Godzilla for the PS4 that I bought for like 3€ from a guy who wanted to sell his PS4 full of weed logo stickers and a bundle of games. Seeing as he was an obvious shitter I didn't tell him he was about to be ripped off. Normally I'd give my customers a heads up about the value of their games they were about to sell, but you'd be surprised how many folks literally don't care and are just in dire need of fast money. For example, I've prevented an older man (the elderly especially I'd always feel bad about) from selling a sealed copy of Outrun Coast 2 Coast for the original Xbox to the store. Told him it was easily worth a hundred and he should be careful, I wonder what he ended up doing with it.

          he probably either sold it somewhere else or gave it to a grandchild who didn't even own the console it was for.

          but that old man probably has nearly a million dollars in savings and no living will if he's anything like my grandpa. He doesn't care about selling rare vidya for a bunch of money.

    I hate my younger self for not keeping better track of my games cases, me and my brothers would end up placing the cartridges in a bin for easier access to just switch whenever but the consequence of that is all of the games packaging is lost somewhere, not even sure if they're all in the house still. I'm confident the GBA SP I got when I was 4 as my first ever gaming experience is collecting dust somewhere, one day I'm gonna have to find where my parents put them and store them properly

      My parents literally bought one of those soft CD cases to put all of my playstation 1 games in and then threw away all my israeliteel cases without saying anything to me, because they collected music CDs and didn't want my shit on their rack. Then I think they sold that entire collection of my games and their CDs when I was in college.

            This. My mom is one of those minimalist "live laugh love" homosexuals, and they're white. If you ever move out of a white boomer house, assume that everything you don't take with you will get sold at a garage sale for like $2. Even if you tell them how much they could have sold it for, they wont care. All they care is that your cuck dad didn't tell them to hold on to it. All those white c**t mothers really want is to get a lake house that they can invite their adult children to come visit with their grandchildren, not that they even care about their own children anymore after they move out. Just the babies that they don't have to care for every single day anymore.

        OP here, I don't know exactly what you mean by shining a light, but I just looked up at this:

        https://www.videogamesage.com/forums/topic/5122-differences-between-fake-vs-real-nintendo-ds-games/

        Guide for ways to tell if your cartridge is fake or not, and mine passed every one. For example, if there is a tiny rectangle on the top of the cartridge or not. Mine does.

        Again, the game store would test for fakes so there is zero chance they would be taking in any fraudulent copies.
