ATTN: Anybody who has a good eye on real Pokemon GBA cartridges

Been chatting with this seller on eBay and I've been bugging him for pictures on his Fire Red cartridge

Is there any tip-offs that show it's real/fake? Does the text or the front/back look a little off?

Don't buy it. It probably won't save and looks like pokemon ruby with a fire red sticker

$20?! It is definitely not worth that much.

Did you know if the Sun was ten feet closer to the earth we would all burn to death, and if it were ten feet further away the earth would freeze? God is great.

It definitely looks real. However if I were you, for extra dollars, you could get a new one, without the possibility that his save file is corrupt.

I'm looking at my Leaf Green cartridge right now and next to the "Pokemon" symbol there should be some sort of indent, which appears missing from the picture. For example, mine reads "12A". Other than that, the text doesn't appear to be as crisp as my cartridge, but that's probably only because the pictures as zoomed in.

Otherwise, all the lettering seems to be legitimate, so if I had to say, it's real.

Its missing the gloss on the label... I think it's a repro-cartridge

No, it's not a Ruby cartridge. Ruby is darker and more transparent

Hmm... Maybe.

That's what I noticed too, but maybe it's because of the light source?
