by the way, did it come with a save file? emulators aren't creating one for it.

I'm 99% positive that these don't create save files.

@Deoxyz, do those "legal reasons" involve legal agreements and contracts between an italian source and "former Nintendo employees"?

@theSLAYER, here's a pic of the Nintndo prototype label. The text is listed below:

Spoiler

 

AGBカートリッジ 128MフラッシュS
ディップスイッチの設定

SW3はライトプロテクト用切替えスイッチです。ライターでの書込み時のみOFF、それ意外はONにして使用してください。
スライドスイッチの故障を防ぐ為、ピンセットなどで切替えてください。

 

Which translates to:

AGB Cartridge, 128M Flash S
Dip switch settings

SW3 is the write protection switch. Please only switch it to OFF for writing, otherwise keep it in the ON setting.  In order to prevent failures, please switch the slide switch using tweezers.

Saw that type of cart on that one ebay seller.

I was thinking if it'll be more unique/have differences.

at the very least, the glossy sticker look like it'll tear or something when tempered with..

I'm not gonna talk about it much in the thread here, but send me a PM if there's anything you know about that that I should know.

Yes. I live in Italy, but I'm not italian.

The "Nintendo Employee" is just one. Although I'm not too sure about what was his role with Nintendo, I only know he had a bunch of carts which I purchased. I paid over 10.000€, and I'm still paying a monthly fee which I'll finish paying in June 2017.

 

I currently have: 1 10ANNIV for each european language, 1 Aura Mew for each european language, 1 Aurora Ticket US, 1 Shiny Zigzagoon UK, and some others I can't disclose any info about currently, but I have told some people about them. I had multiple 10ANNIV UK, Aura Mew UK, Aurora Ticket US, Shiny Zigzagoon UK ( whose cart was different from the others) because apparently these UK carts were not used only in UK, but also other countries in the north of Europe. Aurora Ticket US was used in several US states.

Some of those carts were also sold on Nintendoage by some guy in 2012. That's how several people got their hands on them ( I was lucky enough to get some myself), and that's why I'm allowed to sell 10ANNIV and Aurora Ticket US freely. I got them in the past before I had a deal with that guy. Some other people got Shiny Zigzagoon, so it was "leaked" before I got my hands on the lot of carts from that guy. Similar dynamic with Aura Mew, and I think there's a post on here too, so I did sell it in the past, but I sold them quickly and I have no intention to share the ROMs currently.

In the past few years I sold a few 10ANNIV, a few Aurora Ticket US, a few Shiny Zigzagoon UK and a few Aura Mew UK ( although these last ones were sold to a single buyer years ago, so I never put them on eBay, but you'll probably find them for sale by someone else sooner or later).

I don't have any other carts to sell anymore. I was just selling to get some money back, and now I've finished all spare carts I had.

As I said, in June 2017 I'll finish paying and I'll be "more free" to talk about whatever else I have. Check back in July 2017 and I'll have something sweet for you all.

Is the UK Shiny Zigzagoon the same as the one from the North America Version 14 and 16 Demo Discs? If so, then no one's gonna be bugging you for that one.

I don't know about that nonsense. If any of those ever go up for sale, I'll do anything I can to get my hands on one.  hahahahahahaha

I can confirm that the labels are thin and delicate. Mine is half ripped and clearly shows that it rips much easier than the standard GBA label. It's similar to one of those really cheap water bottle labels that tear when you rip them off.

IIRC all of the shiny zigzagoons are generated the same except with their respective region's name.

So I'm guessing the UK ones are identical to the North America Demo Disc ones.

I will envy you people with access until the end of time. 

Couldn't these files then be implemented into legit distribution tolls at this point then? Or were agreements made with these wretched collectors we all keep talking about?

Almost everything listed here PP.org has copies of already and have disassembled and documented. :)

I'm still curious if we could modify the recently released ROM to generate legal versions of other event Pokemon that have the same PID method. If that's possible, we wouldn't NEED any more GBA distro ROMs besides one of the Aurora Ticket ones for Mystery Gift.

Are these kept private due to the legal nature of roms, or just that the staff and/or cartridge owners just personally want to keep them rare and valuable?

My guess is a little of both.

We were asked by the ROM owners to not distribute them.

We technically don't.  We know how every BACD is generated.  I'll be happy to lay it out and @Bond697 can correct me if I am wrong.
I'll list these by rand call:

PIDL, PIDH, IV1, IV2, Held Item, OTG/Game

OTG/Item is calculated by:

rand() >> 7 & 1


And if the PID turns out shiny, then the whole thing is started again with another 16bit seed.

When I was given the 10ANNIV rom 3 1/2 years ago, the person who gave it to me asked me not to give it out or anything to preserve the cart's value. The same goes for a few others. Some of the stuff isn't even private, there just hasn't been anyone who has really cared, as far as I knew.  Like this for example:

RvdpwrA.png

 

It's an unreleased gen 3 event, METEOR Jirachi.  I found its multiboot rom in.. some game.  I've told people about it and given out archives, but nobody really seemed to care that much.  I spent awhile gathering the multiboot roms and checking them out and to be honest, I didn't realize there was much interest in them anymore until Sabresite mentioned them not too long ago.
