I'm pretty sure it is but it's better sure than just guessing.
Image isn't working.
I've seen so many bootlegs, I've become something of an expert at figuring out if a GBA cartridge is fake
Please post very clear, close up pics of the front and back of the cartridge.
Can you post pics of both sides of the board and also the front and back of the shell? 4 pics total. Does the game save? It's interesting there is no battery. Most GBA bootlegs use a battery for saves.
Can you confirm this cartridge has gold contact pins? They look gold in the pic. Most bootlegs also don't have the text at the bottom of the board right above the pins. But this one does. Need more pics before the final verdict
Let me help you, fake! It is as real as Trumps tan lines
very fake, \I have one that looks like this, that don't save .A.
the most obvious spot is the color cart, just pokemon and few others have it XD
if you can see the main board, original carts have some test spots on the back, the fakes not
Cartridge number is used for pokemon also ;-)
I see.. But it does save, apparently.

Does save. Have gold contact pins. :/
If you can post more pics we can get to the bottom of it
But as of now it looks like a high quality fake. It might even be a reproduction cartridge.
It has a " Model No. AGB-002 PAT. PEND. Made IN JAPAN" at the back
Model number is right, but it's better to post pics. Many times we can tell its a fake from the font. There will be slight differences from the original.
The only green minish cap I can find is an aliexpress listing. Fake. The stamp on the board is wrong too. It should be AGB-E03-20.
I see now. Thanks!
Fake indeed. Here's mine for a comparison.
Yes, it's a high quality fake unfortunately. The Game Boy Advance logo on the front of the cartridge at the top is way off. The cartridge color is also wrong as mentioned earlier.
Just look at the screw and its placement
I couldn't put it back properly since I don't have a tri-wing screw driver loool
But location of it. I've seen a lot of fakes, I recognize them immediately :-)
