So. I've been soft resetting for a Mesprit all day. I wanted a Shiny one. I put my Living dex into my Alpha Sapphire. After a few hours, just now, I caught the shiny Mesprit and attempted to save. It froze in the middle. And I lost me shiny Mesprit. And the entire Living Dex that I worked for over 600 hours on. I'm assuming that there isn't, but is there any way to recover that data?

tl;dr: Sometimes I just hate Pokemon.

If you had backed up a save on powersaves then yeah...

I don't know any other way.

If your save corrupts, it goes back to the last time you saved. Your living dex is fine, but your shiny Mesprit is lost to the RNG gods.

Pokemon games have always kept the previous save in case a save corrupts, as far back as RSE for sure, dunno about GSC and RBY.

Can someone explain this powersaves thing to me? My 8gb sd card sometimes won't be detected and I'm scared my **** will get deleted eventually.
I've left whole towns like Balmora empty: 'Kleptomaniac' doesnt even begin to describe it.
They havent yet invented a word to describe the things I do. -Quaix

How do you access it? Every time I load the game it just says it's corrupted, and to look at the manual.

Does it not give you "Continue" as an option? In gen 3 and 4 games I had saves corrupt on me for one reason or another and it just said something to the effect of "Your save data has been corrupted, defaulting to the last valid save data," and let me continue from there.

Edit: By the way, is it a physical copy or digital?

It's physical. And no, it just says "Your save data is corrupted."
