Sorry if this is in the wrong place. i wasnt sure if i should put it in the questions thread or just start a new topic.

So, i decided to play my pokemon soul silver version, only to discover that my save file somehow corrupted. When i saw the blue screen and slow moving text, i figured, oh its probably just gonna start back up from the last time i saved. but nope, the game said, "The save file will be deleted due to corruption or damage." and when i pressed the A button, the game started from the beginning. I thought maybe if i just turn the power off and on it would work again, but the same message popped up. The main thing i find strange is the fact that it said it was due to corruption or damage, but my file or card has never been damaged in anyway i know of. I never dropped my DS(with soul silver inside it, at least), i dont believe i turned off the power while it was saving, ive never used any hacking devices on the game, so how on earth was the game corrupted?
i would like to know if there is any way to revive my save file(without using any cheating device-i want the exact save file that was erased to be restored), or am i forced to start over? If i gotta restart, that's 213 hours and 40 minutes down the biffy hole. :(

Sounds like it can't read the data properly. :( If there is data missing, it'll think the game file is corrupt and delete it.

You might try checking the little slot in the game card, to see if it's dusty or corroded or something...

Yeah, Rayquaza's the only big reason I'm getting Heart Gold...I really, really hate the requirements to obtain Rayquaza in HGSS I mean who would actually be trustworthy to give what you need to & then get it back?...

That's what I meant, I mean who would use your Legendary & give it back considering they didn't have it til then?...I have a DS & DSLite & Soul Silver & once I obtain Heart Gold & will do it myself, people are too smug these days...

yep why i never trade legends i will trade anything else what i got is open if it can be bred
and items are open season for anyone
you been witness to that

back to subject
i wonder if the preson restarted the game would be a wasted especially if the pal parked legeds over
i would be super a 1 pissed
if my heart gold goes bad i will be pissed off to the extreme i have 60 plus legends in it

Nope i havent restarted yet. Im still trying to see if blowing into the game slot works...hasnt so far(ive even tried a cotton swap to clean it). and yes, considering the fact that i caught almost all of the legendaries in the game w/o using the masterball, and have(had?) 3 stars on my trainer card, it will definitely be a waste if i end up restarting. Ill probably keep trying for a couple more days(maybe even a week if im feeling desperate) and if no result, ill restart.

Lord_vegeta, you said it has happened to you before? If i tried starting the game over again but DIDNT save a new file, and the blue screen saying "your save file will be deleted, etc..." is there still a chance that i may be able to retrieve my data back? You said a day or two and it should work but its been a couple days since this happened. Oh well, ill try to stay optimistic and hope for the best. :)

once you delete its gone for good even if you start a new one and dont save old data is no good
when you tuen back on game it just does the intro again
i started plenty a games over and over again
how i got so many legends

Why yes...yes it does & me saving on my old file on Platinum of 720:00+ hours is solid proof of this...

Please don't necromance, especially when the thread in question is well over a year old. :)

Anyway, I don't believe there's much else to say on this subject (as, again, the thread was started over a year ago, and the OP doesn't appear to have been active since then), so I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread now.

edit: unlocked due to user request

Hi, everyone,

I found this thread by searching on the internet trying to solve a problem in my soulsilver (original, never hacked and trades made only with my fire-red and emerald, original too). Oh, and I play on a DS XL before someone ask.

Well, I was playing in Batte Frontier and lost to Argenta. This pissed me off and made me turn off while it was saving.

I restart and found the famous message of corruption, BUT the game said that could return to the previous save file. Nice, I did and I played, I guess 6 times, in 3 days, saving of course. Everything was normal.

On the fourth day "let's play again" and... no. There was a new message of corruption but this time with no option to return to the previous file. The message said excatly what it was discussed in this thread "the save file will be erased due to corruption or damage".

Never spilled anything on both DS and cartridge, cartrdige never fell or anything that could damage it.

I started to look on the internet, found this thread and so many others. There was few that gave me a hope and this is one of them.

Well, Lord Vegeta said that time can fix it. And Rhapsody unlocked this thread so I can ask if there's a confirmation for this (wait to fix) or another possible solution for this problem.

Well, this is it. Thanks to you in advance and a big thanks to Rhapsody that unlocked the thread. :)

I have Pokemon Platinum and have experienced first corrupted file message today. this happened when I saved, closed the DSi unit, and disconnected the charger. When I went to open the unit to continue play, there was the blue screen & message. It did, however, reopen the game from the previous saved file.
I'd like to add this ... Have wondered about premature shut-off issue before. Since I have had the new DSi & Platinum game, it has had a tendency to shut off by itself. The game was fully charged, carefully closed & placed on counter (never damaged, btw) ... only to be OFF when I returned 5 minutes later. VERY frustrating if I hadn't had the opportunity to save beforehand. :frustrated:
I wonder if the issue isn't a malfunction or glitch in the DSi unit itself, and not the game inserted. I've only had the DSi unit for 3 months & was considering returning it for a replacement.
One more question relating to corruption ... Can your game become corrupt from GTS trades? I've made a few from unknowns & wondered if that may have caused a corrupt file. Did not trade on day of message, though ... it's been 3 days since last.
Any input would be appreciated!

Hello, Plumbgirlie,

I don't know about this. But I don't trade with anyone, including personal friends until the very end of the game. I wait until there's nothing to do on the game for me to make trades and battles.
