after doing reasreach, its probably the flash cart (raises hand for r4) everyone seems to be having different problems though. Mine are unusal. -some pokemon when selected weather be it battle or otherwise, take a second before they animate and cry. I've had the game freeze on me for using growl (something to do with the cry) ... Aruma(sp) lady Taylor (the route between Jublife and Forloma) has a Cheibum...that doesn't have a CRY. when it faints, before it faints, the game freezes. talk about a crappy rom? or the flash cart? anyway, someone said Platinum took 1mb saves. if this was true, then why does poksav still have 256 and 512 KB options? anyway, for me the question boils down to whats going on? and is their an easy way of getting YSmenu on my cart? the links I see to it are just the japanese site (even the english as poor instructions) and other silly things that make no sense to it.
