The market is flooded with fake Game Boy Advance cartridges. This makes it difficult to spot which games are real and which are fake.
Fake games still work, however they regularly experience problems with saving which means your save files could get corrupted. I do not recommend keeping a fake cart if you get one by mistake as they are difficult to sell on.
There are a lot of great resources online that will help you spot a fake Game Boy Advance cart.
