    So, my microsdhc card corrupted deleting all my saves and including my hard work on pokemon platinum.

    Can someone please provide me a copy of their save so I can modify it with pokesav?

    I need a .sav that has beaten the elite four and explored EVERYTHING. If you have those requirements I would gladly appreciate it.

    Also, this is my first time using pokesav so can someone give me some tips on how to make the pokemon I create as legit as possible? (so that they can go to the GTS and etc.)

    To make Pokemon look legit, don't do anything that would make it look hacked. These include:
    1. More than 510 EV total
    2. Having moves that the Pokemon cannot normally have.
    3. Caught in a place it can't be normally caught in.

    There are also Hidden Values that act as a hack detector. Check here for more details: http://projectpokemon.org/editing/pokesav/...pokemonedit.php


    Edit: Have you tried converting those saves or selecting the 256KB save file size in Pokesav?

    yeah I converted the .duc files from gamefaqs to CycloDS .sav formats using shunyweb.

    They don't work at all, in fact, I posted a thread here about it and you said that most of the saves on Gamefaqs don't work

    btw, thanks for the legit tips

    Ah, I forgot that all the GameFAQs Pokemon saves don't work.
    They only accept Action Replay Max saves, but that device does not work with Pokemon because the save size is too large.
    GameFAQs is run by idiots so they let all those faulty saves stay there.

    GBAtemp's Download Center has plenty of working saves that are better, check them out: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=5194
    (you can search for others if you don't like this one)
    You don't have to convert them since they are already in .sav format.

    If you need more help with editing legal Pokemon in Pokesav, just ask.

    thanks for the save file guys. Looking good so far,

    Do you think the pokemon are all legit though? as in that stats don't exceed what they should?

    EDIT: nvm, just checked the IV's and EV's, they're all over the limit. Every single pokemon is illegal [​IMG]

    looks like I gotta make my own pokemon from scratchhhh
