    I don't buy GBA games off eBay, but I know many people who have gotten fake games from there. Not only fake games, but also ones that are so internally destroyed that they don't work right anymore. I think Pokemon: Chaos Black still sells good there, too. Idiots.

    I got a fake Emerald, not from Ebay though, just another site for buying things.
    Just like Nectric, my game got deleted after the E4.

    Yeah, i can't belive the number of people who think chaos black is a real game. I used to know this kid who had chaos black and i could not convince him that his game was fake! Also on my leafgreen file before it got deleted i had a shiny slobro and every legendary exept the dogs!

    I got a fake Sapphire, i'm not the one who brought it though. Everything's fine, apart from the fact that the save file deletes the moment you switch the game off.
    That's real handy

    e-bay's your friend for buying fake games.
    A word from the wiser, if it says that the box will be "flat packed", and comes with a "basic" instruction manual - then really, don't buy it.

    One of my friends has got one, but I haven't, considering I never buy from e-bay.

    I have left Serebii for greener pastures. These pastures, to be specific.

    My cousin lent me his "copy" of Pokemon: Emerald, which he said he'd gotten from a hacker friend of his. I said, "Okay, cool," and tried it...and rare Pokemon showed up in Littleroot Town, all level 5s. I knew something was up, so I talked to my cousin's friend - apparently the game I had was a hacked rom he'd downloaded from the internet....

    Lmao

    Anyway, one of my friends bought a fake Sapphire game.

    There were two ways of telling it was a fake one: The cart was black, and the sticker wasn't even "glowing". He was quite far in the game, and it erased itself, to he threw it away in the sand, then he picked it up again and started a new game.

    And another guy I saw at a day camp one day has a fake Fire-Red. How can people be so stupid to buy a Black-cart Pokémon game or buy a Pokémon game from eBay? (Sorry for those who did, no offense.)

    Why does it delete itself though? How does that happen XD
    And what do you mean by "fake"?
    I just looked up Pokémon Chaos Black on ebay xD

    Fake: When people use empty carts, and download a rom in the cartridge.

    I see... like a knock-off?
    Well, I just saw Chaos Black on eBay... sounds quite interesting...
    But, how do you explain the auto-deleting of your file?

    I was conned into buying a fake Emerald (The bargain was to hard to resist). Anyway, it had a transparent green cartridge (which was good), but its sticker wasn't shiny (oh, s***). It played just fine, but the real problem was that whenever I played Diamond when Emerald was in the same DS, Emerald's data would get wiped. So, in the end, I had to trick my friend (who has no DS) to trade his good Fire Red for my bad Emerald.

    Ha, ha, ha, SUCKER.
    Many thanks to Sceptile Master for providing the picture in my banner!

    I won't be here much. If you care about me, you'll come looking for me.

    Maybe as it is an fake game, the save thing doesn't "fits" really well with the Pokémon game, and causes data corruption?

    Trust me, you don't want Chaos Black. The *meeping* game ain't even finished, and I should know...

    Oh yes, I used to buy them alot of times, without even recognizing that it was a fake. ;D My fakes are 2 Emeralds, 1 Sapphire, 1 Leaf Green, and a multiple card with a Ruby & Sapphire in it. Ugh, it sucks to have those games. >_>

    Yes, I'm sad to say that from this date, I'm going to be
    COMPLETELY INACTIVE
    . I lost my interest in SPPf,
    and I'm going to be 99% inactive due to iRL things. Bye!

    No I haven't, because I never buy anything from Internet.
