    hi all.

    I've been playing Pokemon Platinum and Soul Silver on my Supercard DSTwo card and have amassed quite a collection of Pokemon.

    I am hoping to transfer them to Pkmn Black or White when those games are released in English.

    ... however ...

    seems that's only possible via "DS Download Play." I've never used that before, but I'm anticipating a problem because, to my knowledge, DS Download Play loads up automatically regardless of what game is in the DS. Thus, it probably won't be able to find/use my Platinum/SS save file because it won't know how to access it on the flash card. Right?

    Sorry, this is all very confusing to me but I'm hoping someone has already sorted out this issue and can tell me what to do when B+W come out!

    Thanks in advance...

    one of the downsides of using roms unfortunately you need a legit copy of pokemon ss or hs pokemon black and white can be a rom

    You need a legit copy of HG/SS and two DS, otherwise, you can forget about trading.

    ok, thanks guys.

    is there any way to make a legit copy of a game load up a save file produced on a flash card? I got no problem running out and picking up one of these games, but I don't feel like replaying all of, say, Pokemon Platinum just to get my Black/White game prepped - know what I mean?

    It's still in the beta stages but this does what you want.

    Why not use PokeSav to extract pkm files from your HG/SS save then transfer those into your B/W save?

    you could always trade your pokemon from the rom to the legit copy
