You'd just add the code to the Action Replay and load the cheat on your real game from the get-go, no need to bother restoring a dumped save file.*

    I know off the top of my head that there's like, five different types of Action Replays for the DS line of systems, most of which aren't in production anymore so you'd be buying old or used merchandise, and each one is in its own state of support and some of them are blocked by firmware. 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.

    *Caveat emptor and all that, it can actually be pretty easy to end up with some Bad Eggs or lose some save information if you mess up putting the code in or use a code incorrectly.

    I wish my internet worked...
    Or my phone could record battles and audio...

    So I'm going to consider something I never thought I would: Nuzlocke
    It's up in the air, I won't erase any of my games if they have important competitive stuff on them; but if I grab an old game and mess around I'll probably try one.

    I think this was meant to be...
    I happened to find my copy of Fire Red after not touching it for a few years, the file that was on it? Saved right before picking my starter lol

    So now I start my adventure with Deku the Bulbasaur who won a speed tie with Green's Charmander with only one hit point left. That would've been a fairly quick run but now I'm off for digital ****-fighting and child endangerment!

    EDIT: lol word filters

    So I forgot how strong Gary is in the second battle. Level 9 is a little higher than I remember so say farewell to Air Bojo the Pidgey and Joey the Ratata.
    Thankfully Deku is bulky as hell and just seeded everything to death.

    In Viridian forest the team is now:
    Deku the Bulbasaur
    Chrono the Pikachu
    And Joey2 the Ratata

    The way I'm doing it is faint = release and catch the first Pokemon in an area UNLESS it is one already in your party/box, hence the second Ratata. In which case you catch the first one you don't have. I think that makes sense.

    If you do, I find the easiest is Ruby/Emerald with a Mudkip.

    The variant of the dupe clause I've been running is that once you capture (or attempt to capture) something, you get no more chances at anything from the same evolutionary set. This has allowed me to ignore all Magikarp since capturing the red Gyarados at the lake of rage, but on the other hand, having knocked out a Krabby without capturing it in Olivine city, no more Krabby or Kingler for me.

    Considering I'm on Joey3, that may have been a better idea lol
    Oh well, Deku handled Misty like a pro (sassy nature ftw) but GARY OAK decided that Charmander should get free rein on Chrono :smallsad: oh and I managed to crit a Zubat in Mt. Moon so I got nothing from there but the fossil. Finished nugget bridge without further incident and am calling it for the night.

    Current team:
    Deku the Ivysaur lv 20
    Girl Talk the Spearow lv 13
    Joey3 the Rattata lv 17 yes I have had three of them in under 4 hours

    I figured I'd just do one of the more recent ones for ease of transferring pokemon to BW afterwards. I have to say though I'm kind of surprised at the prices though, most of the pokemon games are sitting around $15-$25 used. I expected a little less... But I guess that's the popularity of pokemon for you.

    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...
