[Guide] How to Fix the Blue Error Screen when Accessing your PC (Pokemon Black/White)


Recommended Posts

So you're playing Pokemon Black/White and you try and visit your PC box, only to encounter...

the Blue Error Screen!
(duh duh duh *dramatic reverb*)

What causes the Blue Error Screen?

The blue error screen is the result of the game encountering data that has somehow been corrupted. This corrupted data can't be read and causes the game to crash. There could be several different culprits, but the one I've seen most often (and the focus of this guide) is
incorrect or improperly used AR codes for WonderCard Pokemon
.

In the specific case of the WonderCard codes, the failed code
generates corrupted data in two of your PC boxes: 6 and 7
.

Corrupted data in my PC boxes? Does that mean all my Pokemon are gone?!

If the issue is the result of failed WonderCard codes, the answer is
NO
. From what I have seen, it is only the EMPTY SPACES in those two boxes that get corrupted, not the Pokemon themselves. The Pokemon are perfectly fine and can even be rescued if you have the means.

So, how do I fix it?

What you need to do is
overwrite the corrupted data in the empty spaces of box 6 and 7
. You can accomplish this by either manually adding Pokemon to those empty spaces (Methods 1 and 3), or deleting ALL the data from the boxes (Method 2).

1.
NDS Backup Adapter Plus/R4 Save Dongle + Pokegen

This Method is recommended for those who want to save the Pokemon in the affected boxes and don't mind purchasing a very handy device to accomplish it.

Required Hardware
:

    [*]NDS Backup Adapter Plus, R4i Save Dongle, or something similar.

    [*]Computer running windows XP or later

    Required Software
    :

    Process
    :

    Using the USB adapter, dump your save file and open it with PokeGen. Create and keep a backup copy of your save before editing it, just in case.

    Now, fill any and all empty spaces in boxes 6 and 7 with Pokemon. Create your own or just duplicate ones you already have, but get those spaces filled! After you've done this, save the changes and use your adapter to restore your save to your cart. Start up your game and access your PC!

    PROS and CONS of this Method
    :

    PROS
    :

    • VERY easy to do

    • You can use the Adapter to back up and restore other game saves, even some 3DS saves (Pokemon X/Y excluded).

    • You can save the Pokemon that were in the affected boxes.

    CONS
    :

    • A bit costly ($20 for the R4 Save Dongle, $35 for NDS Adapter Plus)

    2.
    ARDS/ARDSi + box delete codes

    This Method is recommended for those who don't want to purchase anything extra (assuming you already have an ARDS/ARDSi) and who don't mind losing whatever Pokemon are in boxes 6 and 7.

    Required Hardware
    :

      Required Software
      :

      No software is
      required
      (as you can add codes to an ARDS/ARDSi manually) but if you still have the USB connector, using their software is recommended, just for ease of use. If you don't have the software, you can download it on the manufacturers website:

      If you really want to avoid using the software and you have an ARDSi with an SD card, you can always add codes by hand by editing the XML file.

      Process
      :

      Use the following codes to delete boxes 6 and 7. This will clear the corrupted data from the empty spaces, but will also delete any Pokemon in the boxes.

      The activate buttons are Select+Up.
      You need to run the game with BOTH of these codes checked, because you need to be able to activate them both at the same time.

      ::Box 6
      94000130 FFBB0000
      B2000024 00000000
      D5000000 00000000
      C0000000 000003FB
      D6000000 00005CBC
      D2000000 00000000
      
      ::Box 7
      94000130 FFBB0000
      B2000024 00000000
      D5000000 00000000
      C0000000 000003FB
      D6000000 00006CBC
      D2000000 00000000

      After trying the codes, try opening your PC.
      DO NOT SAVE
      until you are certain that it worked and that you are happy with the result. Though these codes have been tested, it is always a good idea to check your other boxes before saving.

      PROS and CONS of this Method
      :

      PROS
      :

      • no cost (again, assuming you already own or have access to an ARDS/ARDSi)

      • This is a fast method, as you only need to add some codes to your ARDSi and try them out.

      CONS
      :

      • You are deleting the Pokemon in the boxes, with no way to recover them.

      • No way (using JUST the ARDS/ARDSi) to back up your save file before attempting the fix.


      3.
      DS/DS Lite + DS Flash Cart + Wifi + FTPClient + SaveGame Manager + PokeGen

      This method is recommended for those who have a DS or DS Lite and Flash Cart and access to a DS/DSLite-compatible Wifi router.

      Required Hardware
      :

        Required Software
        :

        Process
        :

        This is a slightly more complex method that requires more stuff and basic knowledge of FTP and IPs. Once you've gathered the numerous elements of this, we need to configure everything.

        Here's a checklist:

        1. Open SmallFTP and set it up with the following settings:

        • Settings > General > You don't need to change anything but take note of the FTP port number (the default is usually 21)

        • Settings > Advance Settings > Use Local IP [checked]

        • Settings > Users > Add > Create a username and password, add directory (leave virtual path as "/") and set the Physical path to whatever folder you wish. It will look something like this: "C:\PokemonSaveBackup"
          (
          also see "A Note about the FTP settings" below
          )
          , add new Permissions as L/R/W"

        • Server > Save Config

        2. Patch the SaveGame Manager rom for your Flash Cart (if necessary)

        3. Find and write down your computer's IP address. (to find it, open a command prompt, type "ipconfig", and press enter.)

        4. Open the savegame_manager configuration file and change the following:

        • ftp_ip:[your computer's IP address]

        • ftp_user:[your smallFTP username]

        • ftp_pass:[your smallFTP password]

        • ftp_port:[your smallFTP port number]

        5. Copy the SaveGame Manager rom and savegame_manager configuration settings file to your memory card for your Flash Cart

        6. Go back to smallFTP and click the green play button.

        If you are more of a visual learner, check out these

        . There are four parts to it, but he walks you through the whole process (no shots of the DS, though - he just types up what you SHOULD see on a notepad file)

        Boot up your DS with the flash cart and start up the SaveGame Manager program. Choose the Backup option, and follow the prompts (you're basically hotswapping to your Pokemon game). Once the save is backed up to your computer, create a copy (just in case!) and open and edit it with PokeGen, filling all empty spaces in boxes 6 and 7 with Pokemon. Save it (be sure it's in the FTP directory!), and then go back to your DS, reinsert the flash cart, Start up the SaveGame Manager and choose Restore. Follow the prompts, wait, and once your save is restored, try it out!

        A Note about the FTP settings
        : When setting your directory in smallFTP, make SURE that the folder you point to exists and that it is spelled correctly! If the folder the path points to does not exist or if you didn't type the name properly, the save file will be backed up to whatever folder the smallFTP.exe file is in! This isn't a problem when backing up your save FROM your DS cart, but it does become a problem when you try to restore the save TO your DS cart. The SaveGame Manager won't see the save file if it is still in the smallFTP folder instead of the folder listed in the directory path

        If you have any trouble using the SaveGame Manager, check out
        Pokedoc's Thread

        PROS and CONS of this Method
        :

        PROS
        :

        • Produces the same results as method 1 (A full save dump)

        • No cost if you have all the hardware (all the programs are free)

        • Not terribly hard if you are even remotely familiar with FTP and IP addresses

        CONS
        :

        • Requires the use of a DS or DS Lite (CANNOT be a DSi/XL/3DS)

        • Longer set up than the first two methods

        Once you have successfully accessed your PC, save your game! After that you can use boxes 6 and 7 normally.

        So, now that you've fixed your save, lets answer a very important question:

        How do I avoid this error in the future?

        First,
        NEVER EVER save after an AR code fails
        !
        You should NEVER NEED to save your game for a code to simply take effect because that is what the trigger buttons are for. Remember, an AR code (working or non-working) is ONLY permanent when you save!

        Also, you want to make sure you are using good codes and using them properly. If you are unsure of a code or can't get it to work, there are threads on the forum here where you can request help.

        If are having trouble with a code that others have gotten to work, you are either:

        a) Not pressing the correct trigger buttons for your code

        b) Trying to use the code in the wrong place (the continue screen instead of in your game)

        b) Not opening the menu after you press the trigger buttons*

        *
        (this is REQUIRED for implementing codes for Event Pokemon with Wonder Cards).

        What if I tried this and it didn't work?

        These methods were specifically written to deal with the problem created by incorrect WonderCard Pokemon codes (since that is the most common cause I've seen). If that is not what caused your PC error, then your problem may not be in the specific PC boxes we target in this guide. But never fear! We can use the following method to detect where the problem lies:

        Go to the GTS (standard, not negotiations) and start the process to offer a Pokemon for trade. It will open your Party and PC. When it does, slowly cycle through your PC boxes (going right) until you encounter the error. Note what the last box was, and then restart the process, going left in the boxes this time. Take note of the last box you are on BEFORE the error is triggered. The box or boxes that are causing problems are the one(s) you are trying to switch to when the error occurs.

        For example, if you are on box 5, and the error occurs when you try to switch to box 6, then you know that something is wrong in box 6. Going the other direction, if you are on box 8 and the error occurs when you try to switch to box 7, then you also know there is a problem in box 7.

        NOTE: This detection method no longer works due to Nintendo discontinuing the Nintendo Wifi Connection service for the DS Pokemon titles.

        However, you can still fix your game by either using the PokeGen-using methods above to fill the empty spaces in your boxes or look for possible corrupted Pokemon, or you can use your ARDS/ARDSi to delete the boxes one by one until you find which one is causing the error. Remember, if you DON'T save, the ARDS/ARDSi code is NOT permanent, so you can still salvage your other boxes of Pokemon once you figure out which box is causing the problem.

        Remember to run the game with all of the box codes you need checked and use them all before attempting to open the PC (otherwise it won't work).

        You can find codes for each box below:

        Final Notes:

        I've done a lot of research and work to create this guide, and I have done my best to provide information that is both factual and correctly spelled. I welcome constructive criticism, suggestions, polite corrections, spell checks, success stories and compliments. ;)

        If this guide helped you or if you need help making these methods work, please post here!

        If you found this guide via Google, please consider joining the forums! There are lots of helpful folks here, and this guide wouldn't be the same without them!

        About me and this guide:

        I wrote this guide because I had this particular problem myself and found very little help in the way of actually FIXING the save. Most of the comments on this problem were something like "you're going to have to restart your game", and that just didn't sit well with me. I didn't want to lose my save, but it was more than that. A little fact about me: I'm stubborn and I like to FIX things instead of giving up on them. So, I set out to fix my save. And I did it. Now, after much testing, trial and error and writing (obviously), I'm posting a guide to help others FIX their save too.

        Special Thanks to:

        RawrLuiz: for providing a save file for testing purposes, and just general support ;)

        Demonic722 and Delta Blast Burn: for working on the Box Delete AR Codes.

        The creator of SmallFTP

        PokeDoc: for creating SaveGame Manager.

        Codr: for creating PokeGen, and some very informative stickies, like this one.

When it worked for you were you able to withdraw and deposit other pokemon? Because it isn't working for me.

Like evandixon said, what codes did you use recently?

If you weren't trying to use a Wonder Card code, the problem could exist in another box. If that's the case, there's a detection method for figuring out which box is the problem in my guide.

What method for fixing it were you using?

Sorry for the double post, but I really wanted to share this. This was a PM I received not long ago based on this guide. It made me feel so good ^_^

Hello,

So, I basically made an account on here so I could thank you for your post about the pokemon box blue screen of death. I made a foolish mistake in using an AR code on my living Pokedex black, trying to get everstones so I could trade the evolving-by-trade pokemon to black 2 without them evolving before I had finished doing a majority of the trading. I felt very stupid and pissed since I just lost hundreds of hours of work and was quite devastated. When I ran across your post, and it worked, I knew I had to thank you personally. I don't know how much work you actually did put into researching all of the data in your post, but I thank you for all of it.

I have this issue with box one in my black 2 cart but so far I haven't been able to find a code to delete the box for black 2. I've tried the black 1 code and it did work, i can access my box one, but it causes box 24 to be named ??????????? and when i switch to 24 from 1 and 1 from 24 the game crashes, as if there's a corrupted phantom box in between. I have also tried the box 1 and 24 delete code and it still doesn't work. My question is, does anyone know where a code to delete a box for black 2 is?

HKLives, did you ever find a solution? Check the Black2/White2 AR code thread. If someone hasn't already made a delete box code for those games, you can ask about it. I'll look too and will update if I find it. Best of luck!

EDIT: Found it! Once again, thanks to DeltaBlastBurn for generating these codes!

http://projectpokemon.org/forums/showthread.php?24541-B2-W2-AR-Codes&p=153883&viewfull=1#post153883

I haven't personally tested these codes yet, but I will and once I have, I'll be adding them to the guide.

And sorry HKLives for not seeing your reply 'til now. I thought I had email notifications turned on for this thread, but I didn't =/

Hey Brosef,

I made an account on this site just to thank you for this guide.

I'm a long-time Pokémon player, and since X & Y has introduced so many pro-competitive options to the game, I decided to try out PokéGen to give me a head start.

One thing led to another, and I ended up having a corrupt Box 1. Thanks so much for showing how to access the individual boxes, that was a stroke of genius!

I was completely able to recover all of my Pokémon (since Box 1 was empty due to Poké Transporter)!

Thank you SO much!

With best regards,

Pokémon Trainer Coin

Thank You so much!!! I had the same error and I was devastated and thought I was going to have to restart my whole game and all my hard work was for nothing but you saved me countless hours of my life. I wish I could repay you for what you have done for me. Thank you so much again. Bless you sir. :')

Glad to know this guide is still helping people. Thanks for posting, guys!

Well, life got busy and I realized I never got around to testing and modifying those B2/W2 box delete codes. Will work on those and add them to the guide soon. ;)

Thank you very much for posting the codes! They work wonderfully.

I had a question regarding the codes and that was if you knew of any way to use a code to delete a certain slot in the specified box(e.g. Box 7 Slot 5)? It just so happens that the corrupted box has all of my pokemon that I am transferring from previous generation up to X/Y and I know where the empty slot is that is getting corrupted. It would be amazing if you knew of a code that could pin-point the specific slot. I did some internet searching and haven't found any such luck, so I was hoping you might be able to help a little.

Thanks,

blackbeltmaniac

Sorry to Necro an old thread, however I went through the trouble of joining up just to simply say thank you for the fix! I ran into this issue last night and broke out in a cold sweat over losing the few event pokemon i had on my White version. I used 3 of the box delete codes (1, 6 and 7) and after that my PC was back to normal! Luckily i didn't have any pokemon stored in those boxes so I was more than fine simply deleting the data. :D Again, thank you so much for developing this fix!

I have a question. How do I connect to the GTS if Nintendo has disabled the the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection part and it no longer works? I've got the error screen on my PC in Pokemon White and I tried the 6/7 delete Box codes but when I went to open the PC the error screen came still. How do I fix this?

Sorry for the late reply my friend. I guess I just need to regularly check this thread, since the email notifications seem to not work for me. =/

I haven't tried this since they shut those down, but I think that this method may still work. I will check it and EDIT with results.

WOW. Life got away from me again -_- I apologize, man. Anyway, I checked, and you are right, sir. Because Nintendo discontinued the wifi services for these games, the detection method no longer works. At this point, I would suggest you load all the box delete codes and just go through them one by one. Alternatively, you could get one of the save dongles and dump your save and edit it directly. I know it costs money, but it's SO easy with PokeGen, and will allow you to save all your pokemon. Out of curiosity, what code were you using before this error came up? Was it a wonder card code?
