    So after using PKHex for the first time (I had a guide how to use it, pokemons were legit.) my save got corrupted. I only edited 6 pokemons and created one shiny Lurantis. What I edited to those 6 pokemons was their nature, moves, IV's, EV's and making my Golisopod shiny.

    I used JKSM to import and export saves. Before editing my Main file, I created another folder in which the new edited main was going to be saved. Not even my clean main works when I restore it to my Pokemon Sun retail cartridge. The modified and clean/unmodified main opens fine in PKHex.

    I'm using Luma + a9lh. I tried open it with PKSM and I get this message saying "Incorrect size for this game!". I also installed a cia of Pokemon Sun but I'm still getting the same when import it with JKSM.

    Is there any way to recover it? Can someone look at my save? Are there more ways to transfer saves?
    I really don't know what else to do. That save is really important to me, I don't want to lose my pokemons :(. Help please.

    you need to have a backup save which you shouldve made before doing this. its really the only way to recover

    With PKHex? The option to create a backup that makes main's to main.bak? Can't I just do that with the unmodified main file? Because I did that and didn't work either.

    Tsk Tsk Tsk. When editing save data, you should of made a backup!

    When i am fooling around with my own save data, i dump it with savedatafiler, JK save manager and NTR save plugin. That way i have three redundant backups and then I copy it multiple times to my PC in different locations.

    Allow this be a lesson to you.

    No thanks, you waste your time if you want on breeding perfect pokemons lol. I fixed it by opening my save on Citra emulator. I believe the problem was that I saved inside the Battle Royale Dome. The problem wasn't my inability to make backups to begin with :)
