View Full Version : ..I lost my Emerald cartridge.

March 1st, 2007, 7:36 PM
Sweet lord and all that is holy LET ME FIND IT AGAIN.
I've looked everywhere... I've turned my house inside out, upside down; I've skinned it bare and shook it clean and I STILL CAN'T FIND IT.
I am so screwed.. And Im really desperate right now.
T.T I NEED TO FIND IT AGAIN, especially before DP COMES OUT.
Has anyone ever lost a cartridge before? Did you ever find it again? If so, WHERE WAS IT?? Also.. if you could help with any suggestions as where to look that would be greatly appreciated. So far I've eliminated all furniture, desk tops, desk drawers, other drawers, cupboards, under bed, in other family members rooms, in pockets of clothing, under desks, in my DS, GBA SP and GBA. It's not outside of the house.. its in here somewhere. I dont think it would be in my closet.. but I still havent checked even the floor.. it scares me. I still need to scower under my mothers bed.. I remember specifically taking it out of her drawer (because she found it) and putting it in my top dresser drawer. I then removed it to use it in my ds.. but then I put sapphire in and now I've totally lost track of emerald. I absolutely HAVE to find it.. please help me ;_;

I once lost my Ruby Cartridge. I found it in the sandbox of a local playground. (some kid probably found it on my driveway) I lost my firered once. It was in my pocket, but my mom found it before she washed the clothes.

Well you could check the washing machine... shake your bedspread... idk. I lost my sapphire but I don't like Kyogre anyways...

I lost my Red game, but I think it's just in my old original gameboy and packed away somewhere.

I've only lost every single Pokemon game I have ever owned. I think I am cursed.

I Lost Ruby with my gameboy but found on my table the next day so i dont think that counts

I lost my Ruby for a little bit. I wanted to start playing again, but i had no idea where it was.
I eventually found it in my room, but it was a couple days later...

Check your room a couple times... Mine is so messy...

Since this can be applied to practically any game, and not just Pokémon games, I'll move it over to the Other Games forum.

I've lost a bunch of cartridges before, but luckily always found them again sometime later. :x

I misplaced my Blue version once. I went nuts looking for it. You know how they say it's in the place you'd least expect it to be? Well, it was. I never would've guessed to find it under a pile of paper, within a box, in my living room.

So, good luck. As long as you lost it at home it should show up again...somewhere.

Well now I have a few more ideas of where to look. I asked my mother yesterday if she found a small rectangular, green cartridge.. maybe in a pocket or on the floor, anywhere.. and she said no. But I KNOW it is in my house, and you're right it will probably show up again when I least expect it. Though I sort of really hope it shows up before DP is released. xD
Im planning on cleaning my room today anyways... so I think I'll turn it inside out one more time, for the hell of it. I might as well. Thanks you guys ;.;

Super Mario RPG, Mario Bros Deluxe, Pokemon Yellow, and maybe a few other games of mine are currently missing in action and have been for a number of years.

I lost my Pokemon emerald once, but it turned out that it was in the washing machine in my pants. O.o Hope you don't get it as bad as me.

March 2nd, 2007, 11:31 PM
That sucks! I dropped my Gameboy Color with my Pokemon Silver in it at my bus stop and didn't notice when I was nine and never saw either of them again. I lost a Gameboy Advance with a pokemon Sapphire cartrige in it in a hotel in Reno when I was 12, never saw those again either lol

And just recently I left my Super Mario DS cartrige in my pants pocket and it went through the wash, and I lost my Animal Crossing: Wild World cartrige at my friend's house X_x

Lemme see... I've lost my Pokemon Emerald and Fire Red, and something else that I've lost such a long time ago, that I forgot what it was... Yep. That's pretty much it. And I haven't found them yet. I have a feeling my brother's hiding them from me >_>

I've lost my emerald and never found it!

March 3rd, 2007, 11:24 AM
GUYS I just found it! I had checked in my couch and under it and under the cushions but my MUM takes FIVE MINUTES and finds it in this small nook in like the leather padding of our couch at the very back.. Geez I take three days to find something and get NO LUCK and that woman can find anything in five minutes. It's just not fair.. lol. Well anyways im happy because I've got it back!! yay! I'll never lose it again. (I've already put all my games in a zip up case in my dresser, so I know where they are.) Thanks for your help, everyone :)
If anyone has recently lost a game I hope you find it too!

Yeah i lost pokemon blue rescue team and.... welll my puppy ate it!! -_- '

March 3rd, 2007, 1:44 PM
I lost my Emerald, Silver, and Diddy Kong Racing. Still can't find them. It's the N64 version of Diddy Kong Racing so that's pretty sad. xD I think my brother put it somewhere, though.

I lost my copy of Pokemon Saphire and Golden Sun.

March 4th, 2007, 3:13 AM

This is really off topic, but the banner in your sig is awesome...

So anyways, I just remembered that I lost my Zelda LTTP and Golden Sun cartridges once after a friend came over. Turns out he stole them, and claimed he lost the Zelda one. He paid me $20 for Zelda and returned my Golden Sun cartridge. I still kicked his "behind" for stealing them, and also for only giving me 20 bucks for a $30 game. <_<

I lost my Yellow Version back in the day.. I left it in the back of my dad's Jeep when we went to a softball game. You know what? The cart was in my Game Boy Color at the time, and when I came back, the slot was empty. Someone stole the cart, but not the actual Game Boy.

I've lost so many games over the yeaars, the only 1 I ever found was Crystal but by then I bought another one before it.

Happened to my friend with her Ruby...we think

March 18th, 2007, 9:04 AM
Yea,try every coat/sweatshirt pocket that you have.

March 18th, 2007, 4:46 PM
I've lost countless games, but I guess it's just me losing my desire to play them. I've lost at least 4 UMD (PSP) games, 3 GBA games, 10-ish GC games and 2 PS2 Games. Got a hunch of where they might be, but I am really not bothered.

How'd you loose GCN games? Don't you keep them in the cases? O_o

I occasionally lose small things in boxes when moving houses.

I lost my emerald... while it was in my ds.... thats right I HAVELOOKED ALL OVER MY HOUSE! still no ds/emerald.... gonna buy a dslite as my ds's touch screen was scratched to hell but still! I WANT MY SHINY VENEMOTH/KINGDRA BACK!!!

March 23rd, 2007, 1:29 AM
Unfortunately, yes. ._.

I lost my first Sapphire, which had like 400+ hours invested into it. I had a shiny Duskull and a shiny Whismur, and my Pokedex was SO close to complete. u_u It really sucked.

Though losing Sapphire spurred me to spend more effort on Emerald, so eh.

March 23rd, 2007, 5:48 AM
I just realized I lost a few games. My Gameboy Color went missing somewhere moving from point A to point B--and with it, all my GBC games. That really stinks because the only two Pokemon games I actually own are Yellow and Gold...

I lost my Ruby, when I was 11, when I was in Costa Del Sol spain on holiday. I lost my Spyro 3 game a few years ago
and found it again........ crushed into pieces under a drawer inside the drawer's case
.And recently I''v e lost my Favorite digimon game Digimon World and its still yet to be found , and hopefully not in pieces like the last one.

I am weird.. I have to know where all of my things are at all times.. I am a perfectionist of sorts. If I ever lost something.. I might go crazy...
