    How much is it? If it's not too expensive, I'd say go for it because it looks pretty legit, but I can't be 100% sure. That being said, I don't think anyone can be 100% sure unless they have it in their hands, or having someone willing to take more pictures of the cart

    i'm buying it with a broken ds lite(only the upper screen works) i want to get some pokemons on ruby and transfer them to soul silver.
    the ds and the cart is around 20.000 chilean pesos which is like 28 dollars

    Fakes die way more often, also a collector cares.

    Yeah I'd say go for it. I think it's real, and it seems cheap enough to be worth it. Good luck

    I've had plenty of real GBA games, that would die so often in which cases I had to blow at the game for it to work and only rarely did it do so after blowing so much

    I'm happy for you. But that doesn't mean people should willingly buy fakes.

    that's definitely real, not sure it's such a good deal though ruby is among the cheapest of pokemon games ever, and a broken ds i don't know the value of but probably not a lot.
    i'd consider waiting for a better bargain.

    Hello fellow Chilean.
    If you live (or have someone that can send you stuff from) in Santiago you can go to the "euro" and look on the 2nd floor, there is a store there that have pokemon carts and I can assure you are original. they even have some of them in spanish, I don't know the prices though. "paseo las palmas" on metro "los leones" is also a good place to find retro stuff, but the prices are over the clouds there.

    The price of the deal is very cheap and as far as I see that cart is legit.
