Alright, about eight months back I bought a gameshark for my pokemon silver. It was a gameshark pro that I got from wal-mart. I first put the game into the gameshark, then I put the gameshark into my GBC. I then turned on the gameshark, then I turned on my GBC. But my GBC screen got all blurry, after many tries I finally gave up and checked the intruction booklet. It said this: 'does not work with pokemon games" Now...I never heard of a gameshark not working with a game of it's required system, so I just returned the gameshark for my refund.


My question is, what is the name of a version of the gameshark that is compatible with the pokemon G/S games. What is the name of the store that I can buy it at, and how much does it cost.

Did I do something wrong in the procedure of turning the gameshark on? I just don't understand those things.

I would much rather use a bought one. So if anyone could answer my question, it will be helpful.

This is very compatible with Pokemon because on the package it states the site to visit for gold and silver which is www.gameshark.com I haven't had a problem with my other pokemon games. Plus 3.1 allows the user to plug it into the computer to download codes and upload snapshots.

I got my Online 3.1 at Toys R Us for about $30 Canadian, but boy is it worth it, it's terrific. It even comes preloaded with codes for every Pokemon game

Honestly, this is a big question. I would like to be able to point people to a FAQ, but it might not exist...

Simply put, I don't know which GS versions work with which pokemon versions. I personally have an older, grey model GS and it seems to work with anything that can run on a GBP (it doesn't run on GBC).

The best solution I've seen is to post and everyone answers.

Incomplete at best, I know.

I was told by a friend of mine that even though the booklet states that the gameshark does work with the game, it actually does. That label was placed there because so many people were complaining about losing there save games. So Interact thought it just might be better if they "said" it didn't work.

I'm a real idiot for not figuring this out...also, he told me that the gameshark has to be off, then when you turn on the gameboy, the gameshark screen will appear, is this true?

I actaully had the same problem as you with my Yellow and Silver versions on my GBC with my old gray model GS. I figured that the GS was only capable of displaying the flexable colour schemes like the ones used for R/B or any other older game. Yellow and Silver (and Gold) all have set colour formats that the GS cannot display, you can still enter codes, but you can't see them or really use them in the long run.

The newer GS 3.x and up I believe are more flexable with the GBC games themselves. But if you have an older model, use it with a GBP because it has no colour, just B&W
