Do you know anyone else who has a nintendo ds (doesn't have to be lite)? If so, try the game in that sytstem, and if the same thing happens, then the game has a glitch. This tends to happen a lot with plenty of my handheld games, and i find that it helps if you blow into the game cartridge, and also into the cartridge hole. If that doesn't work, try repeatedly turning the game on and off. And if that doesn't work, try going to

I've called nintendo. And its because you either used an Action Replay or you've recived an Action Replay made pokemon over the GST thing. All you can do is send it in to Nintendo and let them fix it. Either way, they're going to wipe your game play. Sorry, I had to let them do the same thing to mine.

I have put a Pokemon Diamond cartridge into my son's new DSi XL. It starts okay but when he battles the screen freezes. Any help appreciated as I am a clueless mum where these games are concerned

That sounds like the speed of the game console's processor is not up to the games needed speed that is playing, battling takes allot of computing power.

My son has a used ds game of Pokemon Diamond (bought off eBay)that did not come with the instruction manual. He'd like to delete the saved game that's on there so he can save his own. Does anyone know how...

Far as I know coming from former GameBoys even to the DS. The game itself is not saved upon the actual Game itself, but the System or in the case the Gameboy. If he had played the game before most likely it is a previous saved gamed he palyed or someone else. All pokemon games have a common point, that you can only play one game at a time, if you try to start a new game, the previous saved game is deleted after saving on a new game. Granted that I have not played the newer verisons of the Pokemon, but if they are anything like the older verions. Emerald, Ruby, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Etc. They will delete the game once a new game is started and saved.

I can't download pokemon diamond for gba

do you mean migrate pokemon from a gba pokemon game to diamond because if you do that you need to complete the sinnoh pokedex by seeing every pokemon in the sinnoh pokedex and then you can go to the pal park. Then put the gba game in the gba slot. Start up you diamond and on the menu there should be a sign that says, "Migrate from gba game"

Action replay for NDS and Pokemon Diamond

You have a bad cheat or a wrong cheat enabled. That is why it's not working. Just disable that cheat and it should work fine.
