Use a Crystal save, then use Hex editor to copy the last file lines over to your save.

The last few lines are for RTC, and emulators and VC deals with it differently.

could be different versions of VBA. No biggie really.
Both loads on PKHeX either way.

Well the issue for all gen 2 games (not just crystal) is they all store the RTC differently at the very end

Example of my VBA:
(I snipped out the RTC on the save, so it loads on my VBA)

Example of your save:
Dump an existing cartridge save for Crystal, then check in a hex editor what the bytes after 0x7FF0 look like (if any).
Then for the save you're gonna transfer, make the hex look like the end of the ones you've dumped.

(use the red line as reference)


Just reread this portion. It's not this. It's due to how different systems try to store RTC, as mentioned above.
