Well, I am still hoping that the picture was just pulled off of the internet and that the games are actually legit, although the odds are heavily against me... Anyway, I am just going to take from this experience as a positive lesson. The child learns not to touch a flame after they burn themselves (unless the child actually listened to their parents, but what child does that? :P).
If you see a seller on ebay with a collection of pokemon games then you should assume that they're all fake. Even GBA pokemon games are still popular among fans so places like gametraders still sell them for about the same amount as the modern games. That said, why would these ebay sellers sell their games for next to nothing? COS THEY'RE FAKE!!!
If I were you I would cancel the order. Demand your money back and buy them at a retro game store instead. In my opinion spending extra $$$ are worth it because then you can be sure that the games are real cos gametraders check everything beforehand.
Fake pokemon games will mean that you won't be able to trade or use pal park.
You know you can take RSEFRLG with dead batteries to retro game stores and they can replace them with a new battery. I don't know what happens to the original save file though or how much that would cost.

This topic shouldn't have existed in the first place as there are tutorials all around google to help consumers make purchases off of ebay while avoiding counterfeits. It sucks you purchased something without doing the necessary research first, I hope it works out for you.
Since this topic is now discussing how to replace the battery I'm going to close it as that has nothing to do with buying bootleg versions of Pokemon games.
