    I was browsing around, trying to find a store that still sold GBA games, and I came across these;

    http://www.buyportablegames.com/searchgba....p;Search=Search

    I know the Gold/Silver/Yellow/Blue are fakes, as they were GC/GBC games, not GBA; but is that Sapphire in the first row real?

    Also, does anyone know if this site is legit, or know any sites that still sell GBA games(mainly the pokemon), and I don't mean Amazon/Ebay, with their charging 80$ for FireRed, etc.

    If they have a few obviously counterfeit games, they probably only have counterfeits...

    While there's the potential for some of those games to be real, given that half of them appear to be fakes, I wouldn't trust the site with my money. And neither should you.

    And I don't know what your objection to eBay is - I found plenty of fairly priced Pokemon cartridges (and I mean like $20 or so) within a few seconds.

    Otherwise, just get yourself a flash cart that supports RTC and play them that way.

    Alright, thanks guys. I'll steer away from that site. And I was thinking about getting me and my gf a M3 Lite, but I don't know if you could link them together for trades/battles.

    I stay clear of sites like eBay/Amazon, cause not everyone can be trusted, you could get fakes still, the internal battery could be dead, etc.
