Keep Pokemon in game cartridge or Pokebank?

#1miosid_03Posted 2/17/2014 12:28:26 AM
So I have been reading about people having their save files getting corrupted both cartridge and digital versions. I just completed my live Dex today and wouldn't like losing my collection. So you guys think it would be a good idea to either leave my Pokemon in my game cartridge or upload them to Pokebank? Neither seem safe to me, but in your opinion, which is the safest bet out of the two?

I would say they might be safer in the Bank, but they're not exactly unsafe in your game, either.

To be honest, the majority of the people that make that claim hacked the bejeebus out of their games.....so there's that.

I have had no issues thus far. However, to be safe I got that Datel Power Saves dongle to back up my saves.....just in case (and no I haven't used the codes. I don't usually hack a game (and I do it more for the s**** and giggles) until the next gen comes out).

Datel Power Saves? Is that like a save data backup adapter or something? I thought it wasn't possible to backup save data from cartridges...

It's possible now for 3DS games using that dongle/adapter. It backs up saves and it modifies saves based on what codes you select. Being able to back up saves is probably it's better feature, though.

Full name: Datel Action Replay Power Saves
