Well if I had the choice, I'd rather play a ROM than no game at all. At least when all the save batteries are dead the game doesn't cease to exist.

All my games (RBY, GSC) still work except for gold. That's probably because I played it the most though. But yeah there's nothing wrong with the others at all even though I still get some anxiety of the impending demise of what will happen eventually.

I have ROMs, I am currently into a Leaf Green file I have on ROM, and I have a good Emerald ROM file going as well. They are fun especially people's hacks, some are really interesting. I have heard as well that ROMs are not illegal if you own a cartridge of the game, thus you technically have paid for the game before.

As for my GB games, Yellow and Crystal are now the only survivors. Recently I have lost my blue and red; I knew it had to happen sometime I way over glitched and gamesharked them lol. My Silver my most prized game died around 2007 maybe 2006, my gold(which had never seen a finished file before anyway) went just barely first.

This just seems like such a depressing thing. I'm going to shelve my games and pray to Arceus that they last.

Last time I checked (probably a few months ago), all my first/second gen games were still working. I bought Crystal on my birthday but didn't realize that the battery was dead until I played it a couple days later, and to my horror, the file didn't save. xD

I'm terrified of touching my Gold though. I don't wanna go through the horror of losing my save file. Shiny Rapidash, Shiny Crobat, the first Pokemon I ever raised to level 100 ... I don't wanna lose those. xD

Although I think the battery on my Gold IS dead but my file's still there, 'cause every time I turned the game on it had me reset the time and date.

It is still illegal. You'd have to buy the ROM from Nintendo for it to be legal. It is against copyright and piracy laws, and therefore should not be discussed on this forum. It is the same as saying, "I already bought a copy of Call of Duty Black Ops, so I have the right to go into the store and steal another one!"

It's not illegal if you already own the game, seeing as how you already bought it and are therefore supporting the people who made it. But if it's a game that's not even being sold anymore (GBC and GBA games), who cares? There's no possible way of supporting the makers anymore because they'll all be sold from pawn shops. There won't be any "new" cartridges anymore unless some hardcore collector somewhere kept the boxes brand new and unwrapped, but even then it's still not supporting the makers.

Also I checked my Gold. It still works. c: My friend mailed me a copy of Silver and that still works too. I'll probably leave Crystal to gather dust in my collection since it's rather hectic to replace the battery. I don't wanna risk ruining the game, and I'm too distrustful of almost everyone when it comes to handling anything in my Pokemon collection. xD (no really, I smack people when they want to take a card out of its sleeve)
Red, Blue, and Yellow still work too. <3

Em, Jessu, I believe MOTHA FREAKIN NINTENDO.COM BELIEVES OTHERWISE!

Nintendo.com ROM faq.


Who cares? Apparently Nintendo and the law. I will not lie, I have RoMs, but I do not pass it off as legal to make myself feel better.

Woah. Chill man, not a huge deal.

Anywho, both of my Silvers have died. My original died in like late 06, and then I got one from my friend, and I noticed that that died maybe 4 months ago. My Gold is a touchy cartridge, but still work, and my Crystal is in solid shape.

It is a huge deal. It is illegal activity, and it should not be talked about like it is not.

My R/B Are still good to go... But I did buy a copy of Emerald not too long ago where this happened... So I talked to the guy I bought i from on Amazon & he shot me another copy becasue the other apparently had a dead battery... Oh well... Wouldnt have been such a big deal if I hadnt already played halfway through....

Personally... I think Nintendo SHOULD release ROMS themselves that people CAN purchase if they so choose of the unobtainable games. Sounds like a sound investment on their part. OR remake ALL of the games for the latest console.. Similar to HS/SS..

isn't talking bout ROMs frowned at on this forum?

Anyways back on topic, i still have a yellow, silver, gold and 2 crystals all fully working although i did have to replace yellows battery a while ago, if you have the soldering tools its not that hard. all the 2nd Gen games work perfectly still, i still prefer playing crystal to HG/SS cant beat a good classic game, like Ocarina of Time! That game will never die and neither will classic GB games!
