    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.

    Download a new rom. If you're sure you don't have any cheats on, then the rom itself must be corrupted.

    Although I admit, it kind of sounds like you still have some cheats enabled.

    Did you make two threads? Don't do that.

    Didn't mean to if I did, sorry! I'll delete the other one once I find out what I screwed up.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    or either he got a modded rom...
    IIRC theese games got a anti modification thing, if the rom would be "accidentally" modified (corrupted) , it wouldn't boot (or it would crash)
    or maybe just got this protection in the save..

    PS: i would also check your SD card to make sure... with h2testw (there was another tool i forgot the name)
    i had a faulty memory stick that was corrupting stuff without i really noticing..
