    Anyone know a good place to get non-fake GBA games? (Specifically the Pokemon ones, as I've recently had the urge to play them) I've tried ebay but their either really expensive (I suppose that's because they've been discontinued) or they are fake (I already have one fake set and have no intentions of getting another. Although they do save in GBA, they get corrupted when the DS Pokemon games try to access them.) So, should I suck it up and buy the expensive set and if they're fake get a refund, or is there a trusted source?
    Thanks in advance! :lol:

    Most fakes use an American sticker, so if you find an European game, it most likely is legit.
    Also, check where the seller is from. If they're from Hong Kong or somewhere nearby, ABORT!

    Yeah, I've stuck to that rule, however I found a seller located in Surrey, England and the picture of the carts showed they were fake!(They all had transparent cases and some had batteries that weren't supposed to, which I presumed was a cheap alternative to the flash memory) He also appeared to have a lot being sold at the same time, which made me even more suspicious.
