    This isn't really for my DS, since I don't have any, I just own a GBA and 3DS now, so it's for the GBA, I was wondering which is the best flashcart and where to get it, with international shipping for central america.

    Difficult question. Best one, or an "available" one?

    I doubt you'll be able to find anything other than EZ-Flash or SuperCard ones nowadays, the "best" ones are long gone and extremely expensive IF you find a real one.

    Then...one that runs the games as if you were running the real ones, and cheat code enabled.

    Well, realhotstuff.com still has an EZ-Flash IV left in stock, and that's one of the best GBA flashcarts around. Whether they ship to you or not I'm not certain. THE best one though, at least to me, is the M3 Perfect, not to be confused with M3 Pro. It's the most expensive one around, and very hard to find I'd imagine.

    Either then. Thing is, carts with batteries are no longer available, thus Pokemon and games with built-in RTC may be tricky. Other than that, either will be good.

    Wow...it's just as expensive as my DS TWO was...I'm guessing it's because they're rare now..

    Do you want a Flash Cart specially or just something that can load any GBA ROM image? I don't know if you can find them now but the M3 Adapter/Player series of GBA carts with CF or SD memory card slots were excellent. You can probably store every game you want to play on one SD card.

    I had a regular Flash Cart for awhile, the X-ROM 512mbit. It wasn't bad but it wasn't that complex either. It seemed like there were a million GBA Flash Carts eventually.

    I have a Supercard and an EZ Flash IV.

    The EZ Flash IV is infinitely superior.

    Yeah. I believe they stopped production back in 2006, and the only ones available supposedly are backstock. This is the only cart with full features for GBA (MINUS Real Time Clock) you can get now, without shelling out 70+ dollars for the M3 Perfect/EZ Flash II or III line.

    Doesn't EZ-Flash III have RTC?

    III does. IV (which still is being sold) does not. The M3 Perfect does as well.
