View Full Version : Is This A Fake?

Hello there, this is my very first post on the forums!

Anyway, I have a burning question to ask.

Take a look at this:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=38579&item=8136985631#ebayphotohosting

Hmm, Pokemon Diamond? Never heard of it myself and I'm quite sceptical, looking at the, quite frankly, poor title screen shown in one of the photos.

As quite an avid and, hopefully, well-informed gamer, I've never heard a word mentioned of this game, which, again has me highly suspicious.

So, is this a fake?


And it seems I've put this in the wrong folder - I thought this was for generally questions. Sorry!

What's it like?

Any new pokemon in there?

I can imagine it just being a very shoddy, underhand version of Gold/Silver.

I wasn't actually interested in buying it, by the way. I was waaaayy too suspicious, hence my curiousity leading me to join here.

ACTUALLY, though it is true that that is a hoax, and a false game, two new Pokemon titles are in development (Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl). They won't be released until some time next year, though.

The pic of the cartridge is a fake for definite, because I can't see a Game Freak logo on it. I found a LeafGreen on Ebay in summer and the box didn't have the wireless adapter thing on the bottom right hand corner. On the fake diamond cartridge, another reason for why it's fake. What the heck is that pokemon on the front? Some fake thing. As TT says, there is a new game called Diamond out around next summer.

I downloaded it and to tell you the truth, it was AWFUL! It was. It had fake pokemon, and the battle system was wierd and it had dull coloring and yes...like everyone else said, it's indeed fake.

Notice it says 2i'm a parent and haven't a clue! should I buy this?"
clearly the seller is aiming it at those kind of people, and besides, why is it a GBC game?
isn't it supposed to be an advance game? Nintendo don't make GBC games anyore.
At least he was telling one thing right.
It's rare.
it's better than rare.
It's the only one in the world....so far.

Heh, it's so obvious it's almost stupid, too many giveaways, apart from the obvious, here are some of my own observations:

1. The seller says that it works on a GB classic, and yet the cart states that it's "only for Game Boy Color", which would mean that the classic GB wouldn't be able to play it.

2. It's a classic GB cartridge, and they haven't been produced for quite a number of years now, as have the GBC cartridges, which were translucent and had a sort of "bump" where the GB logo is at the top of the cart.

3. The Pokémon on the cart is fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, and what's with those little gems around it?

4. This may seem like I'm splitting hairs here, but the Pokémon logo on the cart is off-center, which is a sign of unprofessional work, as the other REAL games have the logo centered.

Nevertheless, this auction is a reminder of the stupidity of some people, firstly, those people who spend their time producing fake games such as this, and secondly, the idiots who pay just over Ł20 for this crap, *sigh* I dunno'...

XD, kinda' funny though when you think about it...

This is a fake version of Pokemon Diamond. The real Pokemon Diamond isn't even released in Japan yet, let alone in the US.
