Summary: Aside from being overpriced for an older game, when I received it, I found out that it was a fake copy which would erased all the data saved on the cartridge after 2-3 days. I was promised by the seller a refund after returning it and never heard from them again. Wouldn't recommend to anyone who isn't willing to throw away their hard earned money.
Summary: Bought this assuming it was absolutely fine, prepared to delete a save file or whatever, however the Nintendo logo on the cartridge was wrong, it came up with "the original save file was corrupted, the game can still be played" and later "the save file can be loaded, the game can be played" which very clearly indicate a bootleg I'm dissapointed that a seller with 4+ stars rating is pawning off fakes or just isnt checking their games properly
Summary: "The previous save file will be loaded the game can be played." This error message is displayed upon attempting to play the game. Upon further research I have discovered that this is a sign that the game is faked. My worries were confirmed when I found the screen "glitching" when attempting to save in some caves. Avoid.
Summary: I purchased this a little while ago as I hadn't played Emerald for a few years, when it arrived and I plugged it in, a message popped up saying "the file can be played" which didn't happen on the emerald I had before (which was purchased from a game shop in my town) you also cannot "migrate" from this copy to Heart Gold, Platinum etc, I did some research online and this is definitely a bootleg copy, I compared the cartridge to a real copy & it looks different, the casing...
