Pokemon Ultra Sun Pkhex File Size Error


Recommended Posts

 I am trying to fix that Alolan Photo Club issue but when I take my main file and put it in to Pkhex but I keep getting the "Attempted to load an unsupported file type/size" error. I am using a version of Citra called "Citra Pokemoner Speed V7.9MR". The game is pokemon Utra Sun. I open up the save file by opening up "Citra Pokemoner Speed V7.9MR" and then selecting the Ultra Sun file (I don't open up the Ultra Sun file by clicking the file itself). The file size given when the error pops up is "445440 bytes (0x6CC00". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Save files for the 6th and 7th generation are always called main by default and have the following sizes (no matter if it's a real 3DS or Citra):

XY - 405 KB (415,232 bytes)
ORAS - 472 KB (483,328 bytes)
SM - 431 KB (441,856 bytes)
USUM - 435 KB (445,440 bytes)

Anything else is not a save file!

If your file matches the correct size and PKHeX doesn't recognize it though, there must be something wrong with the data in your file. If you upload your save file someone could check what might be wrong.


By the way the best solution for any issues with citra is transfering your save file onto your 3DS.

Also I would recommend to use an official build of citra https://citra-emu.org/download/, the Photo Club issue is fixed in the latest Canary builds and speed was improved as well (though there's still issues on AMD and Intel GPUs).


@Rfoxes If you have selected your game directory in citra (in the file menu) you can right click your game in citra's main window to open your save data location.
