    I'm playing Pokemon Leafgreen, and I'd just like to know,
    is it possible to transfer my savefile, or at least my pokemon,
    over to a real game? ._.

    Do I need a GBA, or will a DS Lite work? ._.
    I also found this, but I'm not sure if this is how it's done?

    This is the same tool, and it does not only work with, but requires a DS.

    Ugh, sorry to doblepost,
    but I have another quick question. >_<

    The emulator I'm using is Leafgreen, but I only have Firered.
    Will it still work, since they're basically the same,
    or will it mess up my game? ._.

    Won't work. They are completely different saves. You'll end up with glitches galore.

    You could always emulate Firered and trade your stuff to it, then copy that save.

    Hum, no.
    Saves are interchangeable between FireRed and LeafGreen.

    i had this doubts before too

    1st of all you'll need the following things:

    Slot-1 DS FlashCart ( can be any, if its one from M3 Adapter, AKA : M3 DS Simply, M3 DS Real or M3i Zero, you'll need the V0.01 of Rudolph GBA Backup Tool)
    Real GameCart
    Computer (Duh?)


    So its basically this:

    Dumping:
    To dump the rom, run Rudolph's GBA Backup Tool V0.01 on your NDS via the flashcart ( or last version if not using a M3 Adaptar Flashcart )
    You'll have a menu, and on bottom screen, you'll have the commands.
    Press R twice, to get to the Rom Dump
    Press B to back up the rom.
    A message saying "File Name : ROM NAME.gba The file is made by this file name. (A):Run, (B) : Cancel
    Press A and a bar should appear filling up ( from 0% to 100% ) when it ends, the rom has been dumped


    Dumping Save:

    Run Rudolph's GBA Backup Tool
    The 1st menu should be: Save Backup
    Press B (New SAV file create)
    Message Saying: File Name "SAV NAME.sav" The file is made by this file name. (A): Run, (B) : Cancel
    Press A
    A loading bar will appear (from 0% to 100%)
    When the bar finishes filling, the sav has been dumped.


    Restoring Save:
    Run Rudolph's GBA Backup Tool
    1st of all make atleast 1 backup of your current save
    -At this point you must have the save file that you want to upload to the real gba flashcart
    From the 1st menu, press R once to get to the Save Restore menu.
    Now, press B to get the SAVE area of rom initialized
    After that select the save file you want to upload to the cart on the TOP SCREEN (HIGHLIGHTING IT)
    Press A to restore the save data to the cart from the SAV file selected on the top screen
    Restart DS and play gba rom to check if it worked


    IF YOU STILL HAVE ANY DOUBTS ABOUT THIS, feel free to say it here i'll be glad to help you [​IMG]
