Pokémon Gold/Silver Forum  /  Super GameBoy 2 and SD2SNES

So I have been learning this game recently and I have questions about submitting. Currently I am playing on my SNES console with a SD2SNES FXPAK Pro cart. The cart allows me to run GB and some GBC using Super GameBoy or Super GameBoy 2. I am using the Super GameBoy 2 seeing as that is what the rules say to use. I just wanted to make sure that these runs will be eligible for submission. When I record I am showing the entire capture including the Super GameBoy 2 portion of it as well so it can be verified as a Super GameBoy 2 operating the game.

I just want to make sure that when I do submit I use the correct category, and if this method would be considered Super GameBoy 2 submissions.

Flash carts are not allowed on the leaderboard, so no your runs won't be eligible for submissions.
You need a original cart or you can use the approved emulator, gambatte-sr

I would like to see what the moderators have to say. No where in the rules does it say flash carts aren't allowed. I am using the SD2SNES, playing on an original SNES. The SD2SNES is using the Super GameBoy 2 BIOS to play the rom.

"Platform Rules
Console
All variants of Game Boy Tower have inaccurate emulation, and are therefore banned (except specifically for the Game Boy Tower categories).
The Super Game Boy peripheral for the SNES runs at an inaccurate framerate, and is therefore banned.
The Super Game Boy 2 peripheral for the SNES runs at the correct framerate, and is allowed.
If Game Boy Interface (GBI) is used in place of the original GBP disc for console runs, modifying settings that affect run timing such as the length of the reset delay is not allowed. (GBI users must use GBISR for runs they wish to submit to leaderboards.)
Flashcarts such as the Everdrive are not allowed for console runs. The only exception is running minihack categories on flashcarts with MBC3 RTC chips (such as this one from BennVenn), which is allowed, as there is no other console option.
Fake/reproduction cartridges and/or consoles are banned."
From the old psrwiki website, it's now an unwritten rule.
