    i've tried my best to find a backlit gba sp (code ags 101) but it seems like a very rare system. is it only available in us?

    It's definitely uncommon but I don't think it was available only in the US. Many people might not realize that it's a backlit system and will fail to advertise it as such. A good way to find one is to search for the word "pearl" as the colors were pearl blue, pearl pink, and pearl black.
