PKHeX Won't Open Gen 1 Saves


Recommended Posts

I trimmed your Red save to be the correct size (32kb) using a hex editor, to be honest, even that did not yield a proper looking save. Just about all of the pokemon have signs of corruption. Your blue version save appears to have nothing but garbage data inside, I wasn't able to find any pokemon using this method.


I've attached your Red save (OT: HOLLOW), maybe you are able to recover some pokemon from it. Some of the boxes have pokemon, some don't. Can you re-dump the saves with the proper save size by chance? I'm also not sure what extra data your save dumper adds to the save, if any. 65584 bytes is a pretty weird size. There's an extra 48 bytes present, even for a 64kb save.


Maybe someone who actually knows what they're doing can have a look at it though 😅

I have physical copies of Pokemon Red and Blue. When I extract the saves via gbxcart and flashgbx, PKHeX won't open the saves. Screenshots and saves attached.

Tu .sav tiene pokemon con otro idioma (Aleman) y movimientos ilegales, te recomiendo iniciar otra partida.

After looking at the responses I got, I opened up the cartridges and noticed the save batteries were poorly soldered to the board, likely by the ebay seller i bought these from. I slapped on the flux, installed new batteries and cleaned up the board. This solved the issue. I dumped the rom again and made a new save which pulled right up in pkhex.Screenshot2023-09-24071612.thumb.png.254714be7640db9aed5a274a70252273.png
