Thats from E-bay cause it has the I-pics icon (E-bay image hosting) in the bottom corner. And I think this go's in the FR/LG section.

Yea, there's probably going to be more new pictures of fake English version of Fire Red and Leaf Green. The image looks alright, it's better than some other fakes, but it's obviously fake.

(By the way, news on the fakes are here: http://www.empireirc.net/pokemonelite2000/showthread.php?t=489)

I logged onto Ebay earlier today, and could not find any of the fake ones. Is Ebay taking the fake ones off of the market, as they find out about their validity?

Yes, very sad, but very convincing aswell. Oh gosh, the person even took time to make a realistic sticker for the game too...truly sad. :confused: I have seen a lot of fakes, but I have never seen such a realistic fake as that one.

I think that those boxes, manuals, and cartriges are genuine made by the company to lay out what it will look like. But a some workers thought they could pocket lots of money by selling theese boxes and stuff, that arn't the real thing ,but prototypes/layouts.

Thanatos

There are 2 things that you can use to tell.

1. The lettering on Fire Red and Leaf Green. Not the correct style. And! It doesnt say version, and it should. (ie. Fire Red Version)

2. The games themselves. As we saw with Rs (blue and red coloured paks), i think they would do so again (a bright orange/red for fire red, light green for leaf green).

Thats how i told, plus its out of Hong Kong

Ah Ha! Thanks for the neat tips, I'll try to keep an eye out next time a new picture comes out...

03-29-2004, 01:46 AM
Yeah, you're right. They should have the cartridge covored like they did with R/S. Thanks. I hope people start finding out that these are fake. I hate seeing people getting ripped off. :cry:

errr... when theyre actually released in japan, youll know, until then whats the point in even looking at supposedly real copies of the game, when theyre obviously not when it isnt even released yet...

FR and LG are realeased in Japan already. =P At least i think so. XD but they are kinda realistic. Not real enough though, obviously. lol, you people caught some of the smallest things.=P

My... those look very realistic... ?But I wouldn't fall for it, because why would Nintendo relesae it so early for America to buy, unless we wanted a Japanese copy...
