    So, I got Pokemon Red/Blue on my 3DS and i was wondering if I could import a completed save to my game. So I downloaded one, renamed it sav.dat (because when I export it, it's a sav.dat) importing the save again, but when I both up the game, it say ''The save file is corrupted". So, is there a way to import saves for R/B on 3DS ?

    Where did you download the save? What game do you have? What save did you download? What save manager did you use?

    On a site that show various saves files for various games

    I have Pokemon Rd and Blue, but I play pokemon Red

    A completed save file, but it was a .sav instead of a .dat ( I think renaming don't work )

    I am using JKSMK ( search on TitleDB, on FBI )

    Ehhh... I don't really remember the site, I was searching on my 3ds web browser, and I download saves file for both games because I was like "If the save for Red don't work, I will try the one for Blue"

    If you want I can upload the saves files, I have them on my SD card

    If I want to import them to my game, I just rename them to save.dat and replace the original one by the downloaded one?

    Make sure your save is exactly 32,768 bytes in size. Some emulators append some extra data on the end that may need cut off. Then it will import fine.
