    So I bought a dsTwo, and I absolutely love it. I had it all set up perfectly, but I hadn't put the usrcheat.dat on it. I put it on there and loaded up a certain game that starts with P and rhymes with Tokemon and its acting like I don't have a save file. There is definitely a .sav with the same name as said game, but it isn't loading it. What did I do?

    make sure it's named EXACTLY the same (ie. use copy paste)

    That's the thing though, I didn't even do anything with the save file between it working fine and adding the usrcheat.dat

    But it was working just fine in the same card less than 5 minutes before I added the cheat file.

    The one to encounter specific wild monsters. The one that gives you a bunch of master balls you trash until the amount you have equals the number you want to battle. I've used it before on my crappy counterfeit r4

    No, use PokéGen.
    Pokésav is known to open save files even if something's wrong with them.

    PokéGen will open the save file only if it is fully working.

    So I'm an idiot. Turns out the DSTwo has a multiple save file feature built in, and I had somehow accidentally switched it from 0 to 1, which made it create a new empty .1.sav file. All fixed. Derp.

    Also, Pingouin, I think I have a Club Nintendo code for an American 3DS. I can't use it because it's for the collector's edition Zelda 3DS, and apparently you can only register one of those per account, as it tells me I have already registered it when I definitely haven't. Message me and I'll give it to you if I can find the slip thing,
