Pokemon Green

by Incognito D Sun Aug 01, 2010 9:22 am

I was at a video game market stall in England recently, having a browse, when I noticed a Green Version Pokemon cartridge in among the rest. I asked the guy if it was a bootleg or whatever, but he claimed it was a very rare version that only came out in America (even though Green only ever came out in Japan). It definitely looked American though, because it had the ERSB 'E' rating on the label. I would have bought it out of curiosity just to see what bizarre rom hack may have been contained within the cart, but the guy wanted £25 for it :shock:

So what do you guys think? Just another Pokemon bootleg?

I just wonder if the guy genuinely thought it was a real rare game, or if he was trying to rip me off? Probably the latter, since if you're running a game stall I'd expect you know your stuff about games.

I didn't glimpse it on those sites, but as for what the cartridge looked like, it was a green Game Boy Cartridge in the style of Red or Blue, but with Venusaur on the label and the ERSB logo in the bottom corner.

from nex gens link

English-language versions of Pokemon Green (not LeafGreen, just Green for the original GB) are also fakes - that game was exclusive to Japan. Any English Green Versions that you find (in ROM form or otherwise) seem to limit the Pokemon's names and attacks to five letters, and the dialogue is badly translated.


so they are something that gets bootlegged, most likely meaning his is fake...

Yeah, it's fake. The only "Green" Pokemon game in the states is Leaf Green on the Advance. Though Green was Japan's Blue. As many have said before, it's probably some shoddy translation.

I found the bad translation of the Green game to be much more entertaining than the original.

That's a bad assumption to make. MANY of the people that run game stores have no idea what's going on. No one does the research. Many of the people who sell those "Power Player Super Joystick" with the N64 Controller, Genesis 6-Button Controller, Light Gun and 100+ NES ROMs on it don't even realize those are illegal - and I've seen them being sold at well-maintained, heavily-trafficked Malls.

You should try the hacked Keitai Denjuu Telefang games.

Wait, they've gotten to "Pokemon Amethyst", "Pokemon Beryllium Oxide", and "Pokemon Orangish Beige" but they never did "Pokemon Green"???
