So i decided to start Emerald again for some nostalgia and i decided i'd make it a bit easier and trade up some low level Pokemon from Ruby.
i sent up Metang and a few others now here is the problem:
After finishing up the trade and exiting the trade room it said please wait the game is saving.
I exited the room and turned both GBA SP devices off
When i came back today i had all the Pokemon i had traded over into Ruby just fine, but the Pokemon i had traded to emerald had disappeared and i was left with the Pokemon i intended to trade to Ruby, so in essence how ive cloned 5 Oddish and now have 5 on Ruby and 5 on Emerald.
Quite annoyed that i lost Metang as it is a one off Pokemon in Ruby.
Any ideas for a fix or are my Pokemon lost forever?
