Can Fake GBA pokemon games trade?

It’s a fake. It plays, saves, looks completely identical like the real one, but you cannot trade pokemon from this game to ANY other pokemon game.

Is playing ROM hacks illegal?

Rom hacking = retro game modding. just to clarify, creating ROM hacks and distributing are perfectly legal as long as you don’t monetize them and don’t distribute the ROMs. There is just no legal way to play them.

If you own a game physically, you are likely to emulate or own a ROM of the game. However, there’s no legal precedent in the United States to say it’s illegal. There is no trial on record of any company going to court over emulators or ROMs and their use.

Emulators are legal to download and use, however, sharing copyrighted ROMs online is illegal. There is no legal precedent for ripping and downloading ROMs for games you own, though an argument could be made for fair use.
