Heyyo!

What? My Emerald Erased Again!?

Rate this Entry
So, yesterday,, I'm playing Emerald. I made it to the part where Wattson asks you to go to New Mauville and shut off the generator. I do that and I surf to the route to get to Fortree. Everything is good. I had beaten the Mimic circle and various other trainers.

Then, I remember that I had my Liechi berry in the berry pot on Soul Silver. I'm thinking "I don't want to lose my Liechi Berry, I've only got one." So I play Soul Silver, which is already in the DS cart slot. I harvest my new Liechi berries and save the game. Now I'm like, "Now that I have my Liechi Berries, I can go back to Hoenn." The game was starting to get good. After tons and tons of scrambling around lost, I had finally gotten the HM Surf. However, and this is a big however, I can't do that because my game has conveniently erased itself.

At this point, I'm pretty upset. I'm all like, blasted Nintendo! This is why people use emulators! Argghhh! I'm selling this game! I hate it! Arrrgggghhhhh! I quickly take the game out and put it up. Then, I start to thinking. Each time the game has erased itself, I had just finished playing a DS game. I had a theory of what was going on, so I tested it out.

I replayed the game up to the point where you're helplessly abandoned in the back of the moving truck, then I save the game. Next, I played SS and replayed Emerald. Sure enough, the game had erased itself. My verdict: Soul Silver is erasing my game saves in Emerald! Oh, johto, how could you betray me so?

Well, that's it. I really don't feel like playing through the game again, but I guess I'll give it another try some point in time.

(yes, this is copy/pasted from Pokecommunity, if you've noticed that. I was too lazy to rewrite it.)

    Are you sure it was a real deal and not a bootleg? Commercial DS games erase the save files of bootleg Gen III games if one is in the GBA slot.

    In general, if you bought your Emerald from eBay, or as a second-hand product, chances are it was a fake.

    Seriously? The cart is the same color as the Emerald carts are. There is a number inside of the casing. A battery can be seen through the case. The Nintendo logo is on the back.

    I really hope its not fake. And yes, I bought it from eBay, but the seller had a high rating so I trusted it.

    That's what I'm here for, dashing people's dreams of owning real copies of Pokemon Emerald. :( /sarcasm

    Don't sell it at a store, if they sell it to someone else then someone else will have to deal with it erasing, obviously something's wrong with that game.

    See a few months ago I bought a second hand Emerald game at Gametraders (Because my cousin stole my first one) and everything was fine at first, I had a team line up and Pokemon already, then suddenly somewhere after Petalburgh my game erased itself so I discovered it was messed up.

    Let's just say I went back and traded it in for Firered (And asked that they weren't going to sell it and they said no), and that I curse the damn person who sold Emerald so some poor sucker like me could waste 40-$50 on it.

    You could get your money back if it was able to but don't let them sell it to another person... You don't live in Australia right? Because it would be quite odd if someone got the same game cartridge I had (And would mean they did resell it)

    There's a few clues on detecting a counterfeit copy. One of those points is that there are no such batteries in GBA games (though what I can see in my real Sapphire, there's something similar to that behind the label). Also, if you look inside the pin connectors of the cart, you should see a "(c) 200x Nintendo" text there.

    As others have said, it's probably bootlegged. My Emerald doesn't do that when I play HeartGold.
