    Hi,

    I'm kinda new pokemon player, and i tried pokemon redfire on an emulator, legit play, no cheats. I've ranked 70+ hours and leveled a lot of pokemons and so on.

    I've read that i could transfer my pokemons up to Pokemon Black 2. (through emerald or ruby).. and eventually to pokemon X\y (through poke transfer bank service i guess).

    The problem is my save file is on an emulator, and i could manage to get a DS (with GBA cartage) and Pokemon fire red cartridge. Can i make my emulator .sav file work on the cartridge as if i started playing originally on it?

    I think i have two options.. (1) Run my emulator save data on a fire red legit cartridge and start the long pokemon transfer up to black 2 from it.

    (2) Just (in a way or an other) start transfer pokemon from an emulator to a legit gen III game first then to bl2.


    Note: i have a DS and DStwo flash cart and 3DS.


    The verdict :P: How can i play on pokemon fire red cartridge with an -already started- fire red emulator save data as if i started my game on the cartridge from the first place.


    Thanks! :(


    Edit: Pokemon is a great game and i'd support it by buying the legit copy.. but it's not selling any more and the second hand market has some VERY ridiculous prices for it. And i didn't know that my friend has one then.

    If you don't really care about getting your save file on a retail cartridge, you could save quite a bit of money by just getting a retail copy of any Gen. V game + a Slot-1 flashcard and transfer the Pokémon from the Gen. III save file to a Gen. IV save using DeSmuME, then using PokéGen to extract the Pokémon and Pokécheck to convert them to Gen. V format.

    Then you'll be able to trade them to the retail copy of any Gen. V game and transfer them with the PokéBank when that comes out.

    Oh great. So i googled slot-1 flashcard, and no specific card showed up.. so i guess it's a general name for a certain type of flash cards? Does DStwo flashcard considered a slot-1 or its enough? or there's a card called slot-1? and if there's one if you could link it to me. Thanks!

    BTW: Pokémon fire red is considered Gen. III? not 1? (since the first step you wrote is to move Gen III to Gen IV.)

    DSTwo is best, but a certain R4i Gold (unsure which ones, it looks like there's 14324 of those) is just as good.
    I assume you would be using a 3DS, in which case those two are your only choices.

    Slot-1 is the slot where you put 3/DS games (it's written just under the slot.)

    FR/LG are Gen. III remakes of the Gen. I games.

    Oh amazing, i'll be searching the exact steps.

    One last question, i heard i needed to beat the elite 4 in the Games i'll be transferring, i can easily use any -other people save data- where they finished it to the point they can transfer pokemons? or there is some consequences for doing that? Because i don't plan on beating a whole couple pokemon games :( red fire, black2 then hopefully X.

    Now -correct me if wrong- i just have to move them to a Gen IV game on an emulator.. Then use the two softwares to get them into a retail Pokémon Black 2 for example. and let them sleep there until the bank is up. And just hope that the bank doesn't flag them as hacked ones :(.

    Thanks a lot by the way! I'd do a tutorial if every thing worked fine!

    It's ok, I was going to merge the two threads, but I didn't want to confuse things for you. I'll close this now though and please use the other thread -here- for further discussion if necessary.
