I just bought Fire red and Emerald and when I turn them on before the menu it says the game will be loaded. It isn't on my leafgreen and I was wondering whether they're fake or not. Also, the Fire red cartridge isn't red. It's black with the Fire red thing on it.

Thanks.

It's fake, as the real ones don't say loading anywhere, iirc.

EDIT: Yes, get in! First post!

Well I found out that when you beat the elite four, that message at the start says the file can't be loaded and its erased.

ive been to Poland and you wouldnt believe how many street vendors there are where you can see only the cartridge. its either black and like you said, or, as my friend has it, same color but different language. he also has a ruby with a black cartridge and it says, "the save file is corrupted". not on topic: my gold's save file was erased, but its the original.

Are you serious?? I find that very hard to believe...

Ok. I might play it to see what happens but if it's just gonna reset itself frankly I can't be bothered...

Ok. Now I definately know they're fake because I started playing until I was able to trade, turned it off to get the pokemon ready on leafgreen and when I turned it back on, it said the save file was deleted and it automatically started a new game.

This can be closed now.

I somehow doubt u got $100000 out of it. The game is only worth around, i dont know $50. Theyd of probably just replaced it with a real one. You didnt really lose alot of time if it wiped your data after an hour was up.
