    Hey, I have an R4DS and I run Pokemon Pearl from the R4 but I have Pokemon Fire Red.. Fire Red works fine off the GBA and also in the DS, but if I run Pokemon Pearl at all, it completely erases my Fire Red save. This is far from ideal, since I want to have Fire Red in Slot 2 in order to migrate Pokemon over and also certain ones only appear when you have the cart in. Is this a known problem? Is there any way around it?

    Yup, you just have to buy the real cart of Pearl ^^

    You say that but I know other people who can use the Pal Park fine from the R4.. so I know it's not impossible.

    Think it could be a red/green problem? I don't have a ruby or sapphire cart to test it. I'm thinking it might be the game itself. Can't really get anyone else's game to try it with.

    "Hey uhh.. just need to test something? It'll probably delete your save.."

    Also, did you use your European Sapphire game with a US ROM?

    When I played Pearl using my R4, I almost always had my LeafGreen cart in Slot-2 and the save was fine.

    There shouldn't be any region problems, you can even mess up in the underground with japanese and american versions

    Yeah.. I'm pretty much out of ideas. I can only think there's a problem with my actual Fire Red cart. I got it from ebay so you never know. ;p

    ive never had a problem with gba to an r4
    ive got an english ruby, an american emerald and an american lg and i've had no problems at all! might be a good thing to tell r4 so they can see if its just yours or if ne1 else has this trouble

    Since I'm not 100% sure about the source of the GBA game.. think that could be the problem?
    Maybe when Pearl tries to access the save game.. the cartridge is messed up and it loses the save altogether?

    I heard from someone that pirated GBA cart will have problem in saving & migration. So i suspect it might be because the cart is not original.
