I was browsing the Cash Converters website, which I regularly do, and this listing came up. This was very cheap so I snapped it up.
I purchased this game for one reason only, to resell. I don’t do a lot of reselling because I am trying to build up a collection, but I will occasionally buy a bundle consisting of a console and games, sell what I don’t need and use the cash to fund the collection. I intend to do it with this game. At the time of writing the game store CEX will give me £113 in cash or £133 in a voucher. I will opt for the voucher, because I can get something I will be happy to add to the collection. I have no desire to play a Pokemon game.
A few days later the game arrived, it was in OK condition and I was very happy to know for sure that it was a genuine copy. They’re a lot of fakes of Pokemon games out there so you have to be vigilant.
Before I sold this game, I gave it a quick test and was greeted by this error. The CMOS battery inside the cartridge had died, so you couldn’t save the game. I have to replace the battery in this, it is very simple to do.
After opening the cart this is what I had to deal with, not only had the previous owner done a terrible solder job, they had also soldered the battery upside down. So the battery here was probably working, but I wasn’t going to chance it.
And there you have it, in less than 20 mins The game now works as it should. Now to take it to CEX
