- 2 GBA carts if transferring from one, 3 GBA carts if transferring from two etc etc
- Nintendo DS
- A day of your time
- National Dex (click here for more details!)
Right to start off with, choose the cart/s you will be transferring from, in my case it will be Leaf Green and Ruby. I will be refer to the games as the ones that I have chosen (LG for transferring and Ruby for the time trick), just switch the names with your ones. First insert Leaf Green into the DS and migrate Pokémon across like you would do normally. Then catch all six Pokémon in Pal Park. Once complete save your game and turn off the DS's power.
Turn your DS on and tap the DS icon at the bottom of the screen to access the settings. Tap the "blue" icon to access the "time and date settings". Then click the calender and change the day by +1, thus making the date a day extra than the current date. Finally quit the DS to turn off the system.
Insert Ruby and switch your DS back on again and load up your Pokémon Diamond/Pearl as normal. Once loaded click the "migrate from ???" (where ??? represents your version name). Follow the normal process to transfer Pokémon, YES --> YES. The game will then represent you with this message:
"You are using a different Nintendo DS, or its internal clock has been altered. If the game's time setting is changed, you will not be able to migrate Pokémon for another 24 hours. Would you like to change your game's time setting to match the Nintendo DS?"
Click YES and wait whilst the DS configures your Diamond/Pearl game. After the game reloads the title screen, switch the power off to close the system. Remove the Ruby cart and insert Leaf Green again. Start up the Nintendo DS and start Diamond/Pearl as normal. Once the title screen has loaded select the "migrate from ???" (where ??? represents your version name). Now follow the normal process of migrating Pokémon, YES --> YES --> Select six Pokémon and then accept the migration. After you have migrated, go to Pal Park and capture all the Pokémon and repeat this trick to migrate again.
Well there you have it guys, a pretty nifty trick aint it? This can be used as many times as you like, and then once you have migrated everything you can change the DS date back to your current date. You can do this trick with as many carts as you like, so long as you have one that you won't be using to reset the date. Just use xx (xx = number of carts) to migrate and reset the date using the unused cartridge. Remember to clone Pokémon on Emerald, click here to find out how, so as you can offer up your rares and items to other people =D.
Thanks to TG-Espio for this!
