    Bootleg games? You'd be better off buying a GBA flash cart, but if you're really wanting bootleg games, sorry, I don't know where

    eBay.

    But I recommend that you'd just buy a GBA flashcart and then download them instead, that way these dirty mofo bootleggers won't get money for someone elses hard work.

    Someone actually LOOKING for bootleg games? Cant even begin to help you unless we know where you are. Also, WHY are you looking if we may ask?

    "Whre i Found GBA Bootlegs" deserves to be a fad.


    By the way, there is no "Original Shop" for these things, as it's highly illegal and any "shop" set up would be shut down immediatly.

    I hate to endorse these things...but I feel like people need to know so they can AVOID them.

    ioffer.com is OVERFLOWING with GBA bootlegs, multicarts, famiclones and knockoffs of all kinds. You'll see poorly hacked pokemon roms set to cartridge format, and pretty much every GBA game sold there is a fake. Don't go there looking for anything legit. :\

    And in fact, a lot of these sellers have started branching out to ebay, selling bootlegs there by keeping the descriptions under the radar.

    Things to look out for:

    Crappy/off spec labels.
    Lack of a box/manual
    Mention that "battery might not work."
    Mention that "game cannot be saved."
    mentioning "China, Chinese import, Chinese version"
    Presence of a Yu-gi-oh character on the front of a Pokemon game.

    Don't get hosed!

    Something like this may also be a good clue that it's fake:

    It would be easy if he buys a flash cart, but he said that he's buying it for someone who has no idea how to use a flash cart, nor know anything about updating or download.. or even knowing the basics of a computer.

    So yeah, bootleg is good for her since she won't be wondering what that little chip in the flash cart is and pulling it out.

    I, for one, feel that Google translations are flawless.
