Default fake emerald

hello i bought a copy of pokemon emerald on ebay and realized it was a fake copy. i checked it online to see if it was fake and it was. the manual had like only 6 pages, there was no nintendo sign inside, the game can't save properly. (it makes you restart like evertime telling you the game has been erased) will replacing the battery help it be able to save or is there any other way to make it save?

I think you should return it, and before you purchase anything, make sure to look for the seal and ask the dealer anything about the product you bought.

Agreed. Slapping the person who sold it to u would be nice, if possible.

Or perhaps a nice kick to where it hurts

Return it and report it to Ebay. If anything, he'll get fined by Nintendo itself for impersonating their merchandise.

Before buying anything, check for the Nintendo Seal. Also look at the box art closely-no matter how good a fake is, they always are bound to have a mistake. It might not be shiny, or it'll be off color...Perhaps it will have a misspelling.

Also, a good clue is if the cartridge isn't the right color (a red "Emerald" is a big clue XD). Always be careful when buying from Ebay, and if possible, I would try and get a receipt of sorts.

Good luck ^^
