Just in case he really really doesn't know if they are fake... Well, start the auction at 1$ then and tell the bidders "There is a chance that these are fake, I'm stupid and don't know anything about the stuff I'm selling. Bid at your own risk!"

But no, he is selling them for a price that's already pretty high for boxed Pokemon GBC games without manuals. If the rest didn't sound fishy, this does.

As an Israeli
During the GBC period
There were many fake games, and there were stores that sold them

Today the situation is different
Because it's easy to order original games
  Cheap Online

One of the problems here is
Games in the store are much more expensive than the United States

Shelby TownsendShelby Townsend (13 days ago)
EASILY counterfeit, look at the oval above the labels. The Crystal one is a GBC game with a bubbled out oval. Those stick out way too much.

Pokemon carts are some of the most pirated carts ever. Its a shame for anyone trying to get a real version these days. Just terrible. I feel horrible for anyone who tries to find the GBA versions.

Darkstar263Darkstar263 (17 days ago)
I once received a fake copy of Pokemon Sapphire on GBA many years ago. I didn't suspect a thing at first. I got through most of the game and wanted to try linking with Colosseum on Gamecube. My save file was wiped. I contacted the seller and they tried to fob me off by claiming it was geniune. Bullshit. I managed to get a genuine copy elsewhere eventually. At least from that experience it taught me how to spot a fake GBA cartridge. I'm not going to fall for that again.

"barely used"
Because the first concern with a used video game is how often the cart was played. They always break from routine usage.

Anyone who pays hundreds of dollars on a single video game because it is in a box, needs help.

Tanked ThomasTanked Thomas (17 days ago)
Definitely fake. Someone else in the comments mentioned the boxes, and the cartridges are fake too. They don't appear to say "Nintendo' in the oval at the top, Crystal isn't translucent, and if I remember correctly, both the boxes and the labels are meant to be holographic.

The echoing and increasingly elaborate introduction to the Scumbag Seller of the Week needs to get more extreme.
While you guys are doing the echo, there needs to be translucent images of raw sewage flowing or trash cans filled with used condoms stuck to ripped open teddy bears wearing banana peels and mucus while a cataract and alcohol ridden homeless transvestite digs through it only to pull out and stare intently at shit stained Monopoly money

WilliamWilliam (17 days ago)
FUCK COUNTERFEIT POKEMON GAMES UP THE FUCKING ASS!!! seriously they're fucking eeeeverywhere and many stores unknowingly sell them and perpetuate the cycle of BS, I mean I got one from freaking Play N Trade no less. the gba ones are fairly obvious but the DS ones can easily fool people.

I saw a fake emerald at some new retro game store that I just happened to stumble upon vacation, and luckily I had that exact game on hand to point it out to them. I hope I saved some poor rookie collector or pokefan from getting some fake piece of shit that would have corrupt saves after a month.

BobBob (17 days ago)
No holo on the main pictures, Crystal color looks off, I don't see any hint of glitter from the three games since they made these three shine a little. Also the games are inserted in wrong and no Gameboy written on the white part beneath the game slots on the white cardboard. But the pictures are so far away from the games I can't tell if the games have a holo or the boxes. But that Crystal color looks off to me still or it's the plastic GB sleeve.

This shit is why I usually don't go for complete in box GB/GBC/GBA games as there are so many fakes out there, but If I'm out thrifting, and do happen to come across legit GB/GBC/GBA games with their boxes, and manuals then I just consider it a bonus.

itchyisvegetaitchyisvegeta (18 days ago)
It is very simple. Any one who sells repros on ebay is a scumbag seller, and Ebay is a scumbag company for allowing it. The games' IP holders, and every legit used game store needs to send Ebay a cease and desist, and if they continue to allow it, sue the ever living shit out of them.

The Crystal cartridge in the beginning is fake. You can tell because the groove goes down, instead of bumping up.

Lucus TrainorLucus Trainor (18 days ago)
Pretty sure those box inserts are upside down and that's what's confusing Ian. I think the fat part goes at the bottom and the open slot for the game is at the top

larryinc64larryinc64 (18 days ago)
Crystal has the wrong cart shell, it should have the GBC bump, and Silver looks more purple.

joepassivejoepassive (18 days ago)
This gives out such a bad name for Israeli sellers on ebay. You see, Toys-R-Us in israel was selling FAKE Gameboy games in the 90s. I'm totally serious. people were opening them up to see no Nintendo logo on the games board. This is a huge problem in itself, so if it's from israel check 2-3 times. as a israeli.

The boxes in the picture are obviously fake because they're so flat and dark. The real boxes are shiny as fuck and regardless of how little glare there is those things will still shine or at least look less vibrant.

I wonder if this includes chinese bootleg batteries or a crappy flash cart...

Pokemon games are always pirated and I feel bad for those who get a fake cart.

The game boy colour side bar on the box in the middle is stretched. The colours on the game boy colour logo are too saturated on the box. Game boy colour games did not come in the plastic clamshells and the plastic of the Crystal cart looks wrong. Also, Crystal came on one of the full Game boy colour carts with the bevelled part at the top, not the 'black cart' type cartridges with an embossed detail.

Emmett TurnerEmmett Turner (18 days ago)
The bigger tell than the manual is that the GBC games did not have a removable cardboard insert or clamshell cases. The boxes had built-in folds and cuts to hold the game without a tray. But, come one guys:
These have always been on eBay. Like, since the games were still in store and the bootleggers were undercutting the MSRP. Not that it makes it OK (far from it), but it makes it not very notable.

Just so you know, back in the day legitimate stores in Israel sometimes carried fake game boy games. Someone who bought the games in the 90s for the full price in a store like ToysRUs could have been ripped off, and most people would never know (except for avid collectors). Considering this, there's a chance the seller is just being honest in the description.
That aside, the listing eventually sold.

I see scammers on eBay selling gameboy systems with "free Zelda or Pokemon game." They are able to get away with hyping up the purchase price with their "free" fake game, and claim no responsibility for it being fake since it was advertised "free" in the sale... If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
