A few days ago, I got Pokemon BR and I went to hop into Diamond for the first time in around a month, but sadly, frighteningly, I didn't get the main menu but instead Dr Rowan giving his new game spiel. My save game was gone!! All those freaking hours lost forever. This is a retail cart, too! So just now a friend of mine with Pearl did the same thing - hadn't played in a while (actual retail cart), turned it on upon grabbing BR, and his save was gone too. What the hell is going on? I can't help but think if I'd just play on the flash cart I could've regularly backed up my save to save myself this trouble. We both have G6 Lites but neither of us have messed with the Default -> DS options or anything like that, so what gives? I've come to terms with the fact that my save is gone, I just want to know why this happened.
