    Lady Legend <3 OMG FREE HUGS!? 8D

    Thought I'd make a thread for discussing horrifying moments you've had that are related to pokemon. ^^

    I've had two that I can think of at the moment. One was when my Pearl save file totally deleted itself. I think I actually cried. ;-;

    My most recent only happened a few minutes ago, and inspired me to make this thread. I was connecting to the WiFI club on HeartGold, then changed my mind and turned my DS off. When I turned it back on and saw the blue screen and the message that said my save file had been corrupted I nearly screamed. I shut the DS off, but luckily when I was brave enough to try again it just went back to the last place I'd saved beforehand. <3

    My story is similar to yours except that my Pearl and Plat file kept freezing.

    I once thought I lost my Mewtwo (and a few other good Pokemon) when I transfered them to the gamecube. I lost my memory card for 2 month. I found it again after cleaning my whole house from top to bottom. (I think I found it in the basement, which means taht somebody was doing a mean joke or something else)

    Once I tried to place my Lumioneon into the GTS. After it had finished saving I turned off my DS, then later that night I went back on. To my horror, I realised that I had actually put my legit Jirachi in there, and somebody had taken it for a Gyarados.. ;^;

    My SS was corrupted. AND THE SAVE FILE WAS DELETED.
    I lost my Plat and SS.
    I almost screamed when I saw the blue screen after changing my mind about wanting to send my pokes to Pokemon Ranch on my wii.

    I have never had my save file deleted, unless I wanted it to be deleted.. Am I one of the lucky few? O:

    This is all seriously scaring me. Has anyone's save file ever been corrupted for seemingly no reason at all? Has it always just been because you turned off the power at an inappropriate moment? I really, really hope so. I couldn't bear to lose my progress on White. So many Pokemon of value...

    Anyway, I was given quite a scare the other day on the Battle Subway when I nearly lost to Emmet. That's a really bad thing to do, since you're so far in and only need to win one more time to earn 10 BP (I was in the regular line). He KO-ed my Togekiss and my Crobat with ease, and soon it was just His Garbodor and Klinklang against my Dusclops. But because my Dusclops is such an awesome amazing trooper, I won the battle and got my BP.

    Probably when my 3rd emerald game (the other 2 had broken) deleted itself for the 2nd time :mad:. I just sighed...

    When I used an AR on my Pearl version. I was in Stark mountain with Buck, and I used the walk through walls cheat to ditch him. While I was ditching him, I found a shiny Graveler. I then flew to Hearthome City.

    When I got there, I used the Teach any Pokemon any TM cheat on my Electivire. I taught it explosion. When I went in the tall grass to test out the move, Buck was battling beside me. Then the game froze, and all the data, including my shiny Graveler, got deleted.

    I later started a new Pearl game (without the AR) and I found a shiny Graveler in almost the same exact place.

    Oh hell.

    I had a Latios, see? I was DANG PROUD of that Latios. I had gotten it to Level 50 for use in the Battle Tower in Ruby, and, well...still wasn't very good at batting, but he was my only Poke who ever stood a chance. :/

    And then one day I was trying to catch Rayquaza. I had saved in front of him, and was having a rough time. Well, after having quit for a few hours, I went and started up my game to see NO RAYQUAZA AND A LEVEL 51 LATIOS. W.T.F. My sister had killed Rayquaza with Latios, forever dooming me to never get Rayquaza and also losing my Battle Tower ace. I. Was. Livid.

    ...I considered restarting, but it just wasn't worth it.

    It's so hilarious to look back on it now. That Latios was BRAVE (Lol worst. nature. ever.), had a terrible moveset, never would have got a decent winning streak, and then Emerald came out with level-adjusted frontier battles that I splurged on to my heart's content.

    Zenotwapal have a drink on me

    I tried to clone on Emerald.

    I failed balls at it. Deleted my whole file. Good thing I didn't have much to worry about on there.

    Why do people keep corrupting their save files? This is starting to scare me alittle... because to be honest I don't want any of my games to become corrupt lol.

    For those of you worried about corrupted data.

    If you play the game properly without trying to clone or turn the DS off at, well sorry, but quite stupid times. Then you have nothing to worry about. I’ve never seen a blue screen but i also don't try to manipulate the games processing. Sure there are people who will say cloning is easy; however you always are taking that risk then.

    For those who had data loss due to using AR... Sorry but you get no sympathy. If you use that device i won't judge you for that, but you need to accept the risk. When you use the AR is it corrupting your data to serve your purpose, but if you push the code too far or at the wrong moment you risk the entire file.

    My heart goes out to those whose brother/sisters decided they could just pick up their game and mess with it. back in the days of silver one of my siblings was curious about the game so they started a new game over my save file and enjoyed themselves so they saved. Luckily i had only recently restated myself i had maybe two badges. Not horrifying but annoying.
