Is the Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal Retail Box meant to NOT be sealed?

    I bought one and it arrived with no seal nothing, But I cant find any images of it being sealed apart from a super sketchy one on ebay with a russian sticker lmao.

    They have to be sealed right? Otherwise people could just grab the code out the box and run.

    Normally stores don't keep actual game cases on the sales floor (unless it's behind a glass/plastic case). They have empty boxes and then fill in whatever's missing. Otherwise, someone could just grab the box itself and run, regardless of whether the box is sealed or not. Also... being sealed doesn't mean it's been completely untouched since it left the factory. If peoples' stories are true then Gamestop has a habit of opening boxes to use as displays and then resealing them and selling them as new.

    Oh I thought that might be the case, kinda like PSN codes and such. Makes sense.

    It should be wrapped in plastic, if you consider that "sealed".
