i found a used game cart at EB and it has D on it. should i pay the $ for him? what about how can i tell if he is hacked or not? the stats looked normal, which is to say, high as hell, but im no expert.

compare the stats to those of the Psydex. Also, take a look at its location to help tell if itss hacked.

Assuming it's legit, though, it still may not be worth it. You can probably get a Deoxys over the GTS. Unless it's got a good nature, with good IVs.

I honestly think you have :censored: for brains if you paid any amount of money for binary data.

Use that money to buy a Gameshark, then hack your own Deoxys. Jesus.

Shoot, I got Ruby($12.99) and Emerald($14.99) both used from the local Disc Replay store.
Ruby had all three Regis, Groudon, and a Master Ball. Plus I kept the Sceptile so that I could easily get all 3 starters.

Emerald was blank, but the price was right. GameStop still sells it $29.99 used.

What a deal.

So the point is, it's overpriced, but who cares if the Deoxys is hacked? It's the easiest one you'll ever catch.

yeah, this is what i meant. i guess *krisp* is in school or has a crappy job because $20 is not a lot of money for a single guy with a good job. but, how DO i tell if he is hacked? i mean, what is the trainer info supposed to say?

Well in my opinion, I would not pay that much for just 1 pokemon, goodness there is someone on this site that will gladly give you 1 for FREE!

What my point is, no, a piece of data is not worth $20. I'd understand if you didn't have the game, but paying for a Pokemon is...stupid :/

I could understand if you don't already have this "game" or whatever it is you're trying to buy, though. Unless you're buying it for the Pokemon, then you're just an idiot.

Wow... I have to agree with Krisp on this one, paying any money for a pokemon is just stupid. It may only be $20 but if you can actually take the time out of your extremely busy life to look around for a Deoxys I am sure you can find one. So what if you dont have Ruby, that game is old anyways and Emerald is far better.

WTF is that about the goverment, that is a horrible way to compare anything. If a friggin pokemon was actually important then OMFG they would pay for it but seriously... that was just stupid.

i was saying they would disagree. he said NO piece of data. not meaning just pokemon NO means any. such as the location of the president or a password for top secret gov't files. agents have sold out the government for millions (billions?) of dollars to other governments.

^That's really not the point.
You should probably just get a Gameshark/AR instead and hack your own, as there's no telling if the game in question you are talking about is somehow corrupted. If you hack your own, it'll be just the way you like it, without all that extra cost.
Besides, with an AR you can get much more than just Deoxys...you could get anything. It's a wiser investment than just buying a game for just ONE Pokemon, that's for sure. DIY usually yields better results.

You do know Krisp is a Girl. Paying money just for a Pokemon is one of the most dumbest things I have seen someone say. Your better off getting your own GS and getting a Deoxys and other cheated Pokemon.

yeah, but isn't hacking a high probability of erasing your game? i really don't want 150+ hours of pokemon to be zapped into nothingness :cry:.

If you think Deoxys is worth as much as the things you mentioned, go ahead.

Really, it depends on how much it means to you. Personally, I'd think it not worth it - save up, buy DP, and get a Deoxys over wifi. You should easily be able to find someone who'll clone one for you, maybe for another legendary (which you can clone for them) :) But if you absolutely have to have it on 3rd gen...it's your money.

To me, it sounds like you're trying to convince yourself that there's no other way - data can be valuable, you don't want an AR - if the Deoxys is worth $20 to you, just go and buy it. It's just that many of the people on Psypokes disagree with your assessment of value.

ooooohhhhhhh. now i understand. ^^that's what i want it for, pearl. everytime i can't even search for a deoxys on GTS, cause i haven't seen one in-game. i don't think anyone will clone one for me, even though i would return the favor. i have around 20 legendaries.

You don't think anyone would give you one? I'm sure you can find someone who will over wi-fi. For me someone had sent a Deoxys over to my game so that I would see it. Of course I gave it back, but because of that person I was able to get my own Deoxys off the GTS. So I'm sure someone will give one to you, or at least let you see one.

No, hacking your game doesn't have a high probability of losing your data, the only way to erase it is if you did something extremely stupid.

And lol not paying attention to gender. ;/

I have a million dollar answer (sadly, it's not really worth a million dollars, but it's still an answer).

If you want to spend $20 on a pokémon and save yourself the trouble of getting it over Wi-Fi, go ahead. If you want to save your money and just get it over Wi-Fi, do that. So now PLEASE quit [female dogging] about how Krisp may be a redneck or how KOL may be a tard!
