Worried about my Save Data

I have probably close to 2500 hours on my Y cartridge. If they do die, you have at least another thousand hours in your game.

Bank lets you store all your pokemon on Nintendo's servers, so if your game dies/is lost/breaks etc. you'll have access to your pokemon.

if anyone is wondering, Y Version was the only DS/3DS game I had between October 2013 and July 2014, so I pretty much just left it running 24/7.


Well that is a lot of hours lol

Can't you back up your save file using Powersaves anyway? Might be worth considering, TC. I've never even laid eyes upon one, so excuse me if I'm talking out of my arse!

Are you the same person who asked this question when they were approaching 999 hours and thought at 1000 the game was going to murder itself like some kind of Pokemon Y2K? Also, not sure if trolling or a fool. The old plastic cartridges died out when the internal battery died. DS/3DS carts are essentially flash cards, they don't have the battery problem.

To be fair, GBA games didn't use a save battery for anything but the time-based events. GBA carts actually used a flash card to save data, as do 3/DS games (albeit a considerably better one).

He might be worried about random data corruptions (you don't hack, you don't turn off while saving and still you get a corrupt save). That's more malfunction of the game card itself than anything and you can't see that coming.

Backup on PokéBank. But your console can be lost or damaged as well. A better solution is: stop worrying too much about it.
