    The games have been discontinued, so unopened copies are quite rare.

    If you want a copy of the game, just buy a used one for a fraction of the price. Most of the preowned games I've bought might as well have been new.

    The rub with this, however, is that in buying a used copy of a prolific game like Pokémon online, one runs a huge risk of being sent a counterfeit product. It could be so well faked one doesn't realize, it could be a complete piece of crap, but either way, it's not good.

    That basically sums it up I guess, and people like trying to mak as much $$$ as well, often. Hnce going to close - don't see much else that can be said here.
