Hey guys. This has most probably been discussed before, but I'm new here so I wouldn't know. =)
I just bought an imported (US) copy of Pokemon Fire Red, hoping to catch and migrate as many Pokemon as I can to my Pearl version (AUS). For some reason the migration option doesn't appear in the menu of Pearl, even though I've defeated the Elite Four, got the National Dex and been to the Pal Park (in Pearl, of course).
Another problem is that after having played Fire Red for about fifteen minutes or so and then trying to migrate, when I re-load the FR save file gets deleted.
Is this an incompatibility issue with multi-region versions or something? I am sure my copy of FR isn't a fake because it is in a transparent-red cartridge, with "NINTENDO. MODEL NO. AGB-004. PAT.PEND. MADE IN JAPAN" enscribed on the back. Or could this just be an overall glitch and that you must collect a certain amount of badges/defeat the Elite Four first?
Thanks in advance, peeps! =)
