Ok my 6 team all lvl 100s with all of the legendaries just got randomly deleted because gameshark is a piece of junk that erases your data even if you follow instructions.

All cheating devices that change programming codes are dangerous, even when used appropriately.

its fun to do outrageous cheats after you beat the game, and cheaters always prosper in the short term, but rarely prosper in the long run.

Cheats are dangerous. No matter what cheat you preform, they are. I'm not against gamesharks because of that though. I have a gameshark, and I rarely use it anymore, because of danger. I got ten badeggs in my leaf green version, from altering my party. That was back when I add no clue what a gameshark was capable of. Now, I do, and I don't use it anymore. So, I am not a gameshark hater, and I'm not against gameshark, I just wish people would stop wrecklessly destroying their games with it.

Yeah. Gameshark is an incredibly dangerous machine - the "cut the blue wire or you die bomb" of video games. I did use an Action Replay to get legends and some others in my LG and the drawback is {mew} and {deoxys} refuse to obey except in link battles. So don't try cheating (even trying to exploit the game code) unless you are reckless.

GS should be destroyed. Whats the point in getting a game if you dont intend on completing it? I have used cheats and never will again. They corrupt your memory cards, they ruin your games (e.g. give you bad eggs,glitches etc) and they waste your money. Why buy a game if your going to cheat your way through it. Sure, if your addicted or have nothing against them carry on, just be aware of what can happen.

I don't exactly hate the Gameshark. I've completly beaten the game only because of the gameshark letting me catch Celebi. I enjoy using it for goofing around after I've beaten Red.

Really its a good and bad thing sure, if you use a gameshark cause you can't beat that last guy in the elite four or you wanna fill your Pokedex to the top, your all a bunch of wimps and you shouldn't of bought the game in the first place. Although I've had my games since I was like uhh.....9 or 10 and I beat it a gazillion times sure why not screw it up since you can't save it anyways.....

I've never had a problem with GameShark... I never got the GBA version of it, though; I've just got the old GB one. :) It has only once or twice messed up my game, and I wasn't upset anyway because I was too busy laughing my arse off at how absurd it was. I only use it to create weird music and mess around though, nothing that would help me advance. I'm not that bad at games. :o

Im kinda leaning to both sides.

On one hand, the gameshark can be very useful for getting things you cant normally get in the game

On the other hand, I hate how it glitches

There's no point of grieving if you gamesharked your way there in the first place.

There are also those who cheat just for the hilarity. Whenever I've used that AR, it was because I'd pretty much completed the game or didn't want to get legends, or because it was practically impossible to get the extra stuff otherwise. (Have you tried to get a Secret card on Sonic Battle, or try to beat the Special Stages in Sonic Advance 2? Talk about impossible - I only knew Secret cards existed because of incredible luck: 'Captured ???'!)

Actually, I'm not against cheating devices, as long as you don't overuse them. For example, there are those event pokemon that are impossible to get otherwise unless you use a GS or AR, and there are many people who don't have access to the many events. Basically what I'm saying is if you're using the GS for the event legendaries, then that's perfectly fine.

I'm not against them and don't feel sorry for people that lost things to them because you should be cautious when using something that doesn't have the Nintendo seal of approval on it. Gamesharks are like hard drugs, you can use it and have fun but know that there's a good chance it'll all go wrong and be awful.

My first game of Silver I played through, had about 50 lvl 100s beaten Red in the cave a couple hundred times and had my pokedex full except for Celebi, I was playing in 04 or 05 so I coudn't get it officially, I bought a gameshark and used it, typed a number wrong and it deleted my one or two year game. It sucked but the game was getting boring anyways and I didn't expect pity from anyone.

I love playing video games for real (the harder the better until they start getting too hard) but sometimes I'm not in the mood for a real challenge so I screw around with a gameshark. I'm also not against people who rely on Gameshark to blast through a game, not my idea of fun but if they dig it who am I to tell'em its wrong? Besides, its not like theres any shortage of copies of most of these games, it'd be different if there was like, just a couple copies and they decided to risk one, their money but still, they should make a copy and don't risk the ultra rare one, or if one screwed up copy was going to dramatically change the price of the game (any change at all would be wierd).

So... yeah, that's my little rant on Gamesharks.

Actually, I find that hacking low-leveled versions of exclusives that I cannot get to be a fun and enjoyable thing.

:D

I do this on most Pokemon games I own [and have never had a single problem with it] because nobody within fourteen miles of me plays Pokemon and is willing to trade with me.

Why are people hating on the Gameshark? I mean the companies trying to
make it so that you can cheat your way through the game without going
through the entire fun of the game. And In case you didn't realise how
I feel by now. I hate the Gameshark!!!
