Basically I'm trying to sell my Pokemon Black Version 2 Nintendo DS game and in recent days I saw multiple peoples listings for just the cart itself sell for more than the price I set mine for and it made be a bit confused and want to know if there's something wrong with my game/cart or box or if it's fake?

Edit: removed pucs

There is pics of the cart itself if you click the link

Where are you trying to sell it? Have you tried copying the listing from the recent highest selling one?

It's possible that people are searching for an unboxed one assuming it would be cheaper, especially if the buyer is in a different country and postage would be higher.

I'm from AU but the game is US version and trying to sell it on ebay. No I didn't do that, maybe I should? The postage is free for my listing for everyone and those listing's i saw were confirmed sales but they were all US based.

The sleeve art and manual look legit, and although the cart also seems legit it's a bit hard to tell from the image.
Do DS carts have the embossed numbering on the label like GBA carts do? I know that's the easiest way of spotting fake GBA carts.

Either people aren't seeing your listings when they search, or something is putting them off.

It might be that your starting bid is too low, or too high or any number of contradictory reasons.

I always base my ebay listings on the highest sellers, obviously adjusting anything that would be incorrect. Of course the person who bought already is probably not going to buy another. So whatever attracted them to the other listing might be irrelevant & I can't say for sure that it helps, but if it worked for one seller then it might work for me.

Hmm, I will try to use their template in that case, I was thinking of it but anyway I will see if the new one can reach the people who want to buy the game

I hope it's not fake because because I bought this from a game shop and thought they sell legitimate merchandise

It's this under the picture that I mean, I don't usually go through the ebay catalogue.

Have one to sell? Sell it yourself

Do you know anyone who has a 3DS?

Many pirated games do not work on the 3DS, it is a good way to detect these types of cartridges.

It was my game I played on my 3DS so I know it works, and I put proof it working on my 3DS in the picture. Nonetheless the game has been sold as of now so it has been settled
