I am using an M3 DS Real and I am having trouble migrating my pokemon from Fire Red to Platinum. I get to the point where I am on the main menu of platinum and I have the option to import pokemon (I used pokepatch on my game). I select that option and I get a save error. "Error reading the Game Boy Advance Game Pak's save file. There may not be a file saved, or the save file may be corrupted." My save file is in .SAV format. Flash / 128kb i think

What to do?

Confirm your pokemon works on NDS(play gba on NDS).
Then confirm you select proper GBA for link.

Done. The GBA works on NDS (the save works too). However, after I try doing the link, then hard reset, then play the GBA on NDS I get a "save file is corrupt, loading old save instead" error. Or something like that. Which basically loads the save that I was trying to play anyways.

GBA expansion pack. It came bundled with my M3 DS Real


Also, I've tried this on both TouchPod and Sakura. Both will show the option to migrate pokemon, and both get corrupted / no save found errors after attempting to select the option to migrate.

Have you tried not using pokepatch? (I will try now, if migrating works for me.)

EDIT: I have linked unpatched Emerald (U) to unpatched Platinum (U). Strangely, the option to migrate does not even show up? Did I miss something?

You are probably not to the Pal Park yet?

I am well several dozen hours into the game and have access to Pal Park. The migrate option is supposed to come up at that blue main menu, right?

Yes. It doesn't matter because even if it does come up it will tell you the save data is corrupt (well, thats what happened to me, and many others as searching has shown me)

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.
  • Costello @ Costello:
    lollypops? a whole bag?
    +1
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
