I didn't mind it, I just thought to myself, "I guess I haven't saved in a while."

It could be much worse, it could be you have to GO to a Pokemon Center to save. If that were the case, Pokemon would NOT be my game.

Actually that would be an interesting mechanic imo. Make Pokemon more like a traditional RPG. Gives me an idea for a challenge...

Isn't that exactly what you had to do in Pokemon Colosseum?

Granted, the difference between a handheld game and a console one is that you generally play in much longer bursts when sitting in front of a TV, and it was apparently disliked enough they brought back the option to save anywhere in XD.

Send a message via Yahoo to KazukoHimura
I'm starting to think that they way they had all the data set to be read and written to was rather disorganized, causing this "Saving a lot of data" message.

Diamond and Pearl are well known as rather slow games, and the saving speed just puts that opinion into practice. The exaggeration was unrequired, but it proved somewhat true. Thank you for giving my fingers some good time to practice how to tap on a table, Game Freak.

I always dreaded this message because save times were awful during the fourth and fifth generation days (moreso D/P/Pt). >_>; It wouldn't make me want to shatter my DS or anything of the sort but the wait times were too long for me to the point where I tried not to save very often, haha.

Psh just keep it as "saving." I'd much rather see that instead. Thank god the save speed was improved in the sixth gen.

Hey, you gotta let the game save your data or you'll be back to square one.

I didn't really like the fact that it had to tell you that it was saving a lot of data because somehow that made it a lot worse.

I hated that message. I thought that since the technology improved, saving would be faster than Gen 3. I was wrong. It got to the point that when I first saved in Pokemon X after playing Pearl for a while, I thought I forgot to save.

Whenever I see that message, I panic and make sure that my hands are as far away from the power switch and that it still has enough battery to survive. Then again, I always do that whenever I save, except I panic considerably less, seeing as there isn't much time to panic. xD But this particular message is really annoying especially in D/P, because it happens everytime and for some reason I always fall for it and be all cautious.

idk if I've lost all memory or I am just a patient Patricia. I remember that message coming up in d/p and having to wait a little extra time to save, but it never bothered me. I only remember this happening during the initial new save game file so idrk what everyone is talking about.
