It'd be kinda hard to get a code that gives one a perfect game file... and that would really beat the purpose of the games anyway, wouldn't it? I'd may as well go get on the smogon battle emulator thingies... and I've done that once. I'm not going back.

There's one or two Action Replays that can copy save files to a microSD card so they can be copied to a computer, but I'm pretty certain those are blocked by HG/SS and every Pokemon game onwards. Those also use their own save format, and while it's easy to find out how to convert those save files, it's also silly in the first place to even have that problem.
So, I'm better off just waiting for the DS to get fixed and just trying to start from scratch / with what I've got, then....

Question: Is there any chance of getting an old, maybe new, maybe used, version of the Gameboy Advance Games and being able to use them? I heard that lots of them (including one of my Emerald Versions) have this weird "battery running out" issue, which isn't good... The emulator doesn't seem to have that problem, though, which makes me sad that I might not be able to use it...

Yeah, definitely don't want that.
