    I'd like to discuss ways to play Bootleg games. Or even fake games. If anyone can answer my question. So apparently with a fake game you can just replace the crappy battery for a new one. Is that true? I just bought some fake GBC pokemon games and would like to know.

    So I hear the biggest problem is bad saving. So I was thinking if you didn't care about authenticity you could just replace the battery.

    You will need to open cartridge to know the answer. Not every bootleg has battery. Open it and if you see a battery, then you should be fine. But most of the bootlegs use something else (worse than battery save) to save game.
