    I tried this but it still does not recognize te save file. Maybe the problem is that I am not injecting the save on a retail cartridge but on my supercard sd?

    Would you mind sending screenshots of what you've done?(please spoiler the screenshots) You may have made a small mistake and not realized it. The reason I suggest this is because these types of things can be very fragile to mistakes. I don't think you specified which console you're using homebrew on, which I suspect may effect it. Like I think you need to treat a 3DS differently than you would a Switch since the 3DS has official virtual console versions. Also are you using English roms? I'm almost positive in gen 2 you can't use foreign roms with English saves unlike gen 3.

    I think I found the issue. I am running the english rom from my gba flashcard. Issue is however it does not have a RTC built in or emulation option. Im looking for a patch maybe that can help. Any suggestions?

    Some flashcards don't have the ability to run RTC saves. You might have some luck loading the save in emulator, changing some of your settings then manually saving in game. Though I suspect it is less likely to work in gen 2 than gen 3 as in gen 3 if the battery that keeps the dies you don't your save while in gen 2 losing one makes you lose both. If it doesn't work you may have to get a different flashcard. I think there are patched versions of gen 2 games that don't require RTC but I suspect those saves aren't compatible and would be quite hard to find.

    No problem, I have re-uploaded the save.

    Out of curiosity is it defiantly the last 3 lines that have to be deleted for the save to work on a retail cart? (my battery is now dead so can't test this).

    On the VC versions of the game i remember leaving the 00080000 offset and just deleting the last two.

    I definitely remember having to only delete two lines in the past, but I've been seeing three lately for whatever reason. Maybe because I was using a different emulator than I typically used in the past.

    All I know is the PCNY flag is the very last line of the savefile, so that is how I know where to cut it off.

    That's good enough for me, its possible even the emulator used for the VC versions of the games is handing the RTC emulation slightly different to actual hardware would handle the RTC.
