I'm at my wits end with this. I started playing a Japanese VC copy of Pokemon Emerald to get that sweet sweet mew event, however when I finally finished the elite 4 and the credits, it deleted my save file because it's corrupted. When I started up the game prior to this incident, it did give me what was basically the Japanese equivalent of the "The save data is corrupted, so the previous save will be used." message. It let me save, and as far as I know clock based events were also occurring, so I thought there were no problems. I can't seem to find a solution to this. I can't dump my own cart as I don't have a Japanese cart to work with, I can only find one .cia of the Japanese version. I don't know if there's an obvious solution to this that I'm just not seeing, but if anyone could help point me in the right direction that would be a big help.
