  1. Hi, I have Pokémon X and Omega Ruby and both have the same message: incorrect code, please verify.

    Is it normal to have left over spaces after “DARKRAY20”?

        • Hello, please keep in mind that if you have the PAL or JAP version of the game, it will not work. This Darkrai distribution is for North America.
