I've owned this thing for about ten years now, and I can't remember how I came by it, I'm thinking a friend gave it to me or something. It's clearly a bootleg copy, and I've known this for awhile now, but it just dawned on me that I should look it up, but I can't find any info on it. Everything about it is wrong except the game itself. The cartridge isn't the clear blue sparkle, no nintendo seal of approval on cover sticker, it says "game" on top and doesn't stick out like a legit copy of crystal. Even the circuit board is different. I've provided some photos here:
Funny thing is though, it runs identical to crystal version. I am in no longer possession of my gba at the moment, so I used my retron 5 to show that it runs just fine.
I'm wondering if anyone knows where this came from or if anyone else has the same thing I do.
