      There's a guide for spotting fakes here.

      Also check out the seller's reviews by other customers to see if they're known for selling fake products.

      not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need--
      not as a call to battle, though embattled we are--
      but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out."

      Unfortunately, there aren't many good reference photos of Australian Pokemon Sapphire cartridges around, so it's impossible to be certain if those are legit copies or not. Based on what little I've seen, I'd lean towards them being real rather than fake, but as always, use your best judgement whenever buying something like this online, and like Astinus said, make sure to do some research on the seller to be sure they're reputable. Maybe even request a few extra pictures of the carts just to be sure- if the seller has legitimite copies, they should have no problem taking them for you if you're interested.

        I'm pretty sure those are authentic.

        Since I'm new to the forums I'm not allowed to post links, but search in YouTube:

        "Spot the Difference! Comparing FAKE and REAL Pokemon Sapphire Games! [GBA]"

        It's quite easy to identify authentic and counterfeits once you got the right references.

          This is an old topic but for future references, on the second picture, you can see two sets of 2 character alphanumerical engravings/imprints on the middle right hand side of the label. The Rating label is correct as well but the engravings are what makes me believe they are really authentic!
