I started a new save file on pokemon platinum after removing all the cheats from my last run. I was going to play legit again for the first time in several years. Like I said, I turned off all the cheats for this run. I deleted my old save file and started all over again, choosing Turtwig as my starter. What ended up happening was my rival got the Turtwig and I got a Voltorb. Did I corrupt the Rom? I'm playing on an R4 card, so can I just download the Rom again if it is corrupted? Also, wild encounters are hilarious. I've encountered several levels 0, shiny male things in past five minutes. I'd love to catch one.
