I want to play the game corner in my version of heart gold but when I talk to the guy to play my game crashes. I tried on multiple different ds's and it still crashed. It doesn't work in Kanto either. Can I have some help?

    Where did you get your game cartridge? From a quick Google search, this seems to be a common problem in bootleg copies. Dec 10, 2020 at 19:03
  • I got it off of EBay but the rest of the game works as it should.

Unfortunately, it's likely you have a counterfeit cartridge, as that's a common problem for games bought on eBay. This Reddit post has some tips for identifying if it's legitimate or not.

Counterfeit cartridges may seem to play the same as a legitimate copy since they use the real game's code, but because of the different/inferior hardware they often have glitches that a real copy won't (this person for instance had the same experience as you, where the Game Corner didn't work but everything else was fine).

Even in the unlikely case that it's a defective legitimate cartridge, I doubt there would be anything you could do about it since the game is no longer being made. The best you could hope for would probably be to get a refund or exchange from the seller.

  • Thanks. But can it trade with an actual copy?

  • Also I don't mind that it's fake since it is still fun. I even found a shiny in it.

  • From what I've read, seems like it's hit-or-miss whether they're able to trade so you probably won't know until you try. Dec 11, 2020 at 1:32
