    Don't forget to save your game! We have all probably had that time where we forgot to save our game and we lost a lot of good progress. Fortunately with the more recent games, saving is a lot faster.

    I'm almost obsessive with saving my game a lot. I really don't like restarting and having to back track a lot. I save at least after every other battle, sometimes before every battle.

    How often do you save your file? Before gym leaders? Important battles? Whenever you finish playing?

    I don't really save as often as I should. Usually it's just before a major battle, or when I'm about to turn the game off.

    --Before an important fight (Gym Leaders, evil team bosses, Legendary Pokémon, etc.)

    --After finishing a very long and annoying part (so I don't have to go ALL the way through that part again!)

    Usually is before important battles like E4, gym leader or legends. Especially legends if is not a nuzlocke as I would like to reset for nature or IVs.

    Too often, honestly. A lot of the time I'll save, and then literally right after I'll be like "I better save again, just in case" because I'm scared of losing all the progress I've made up until a certain point LOL

    I save every time I battle a trainer/gym or finish an extremely long cutscene. Otherwise, I only save once I am ready to quit the game.

    For most of my games, I just save if I've been playing for a long time and haven't saved yet, or just before I get off. For Pokémon XD, Gale of Darkness, I tend to save every few minutes or so because the game has a tendency to freeze, and I don't want to lose all my progress.

    I usually save anytime after a battle. That way if I happen to end up in another right after that's harder to fight and results in my team fainting, I won't have to worry about the one beforehand.

    I also save like 3 times before I close that game cuz I either forget or over-worry.

    I save after long periods of time, before and after legendary encounters and before and after gym battles/trials, and of course, before shutting the game off.

    Generally I save before important battles (gym battles, legendaries, etc.) or if I’ve been playing for 30+ minutes, or if a Pokémon evolved. And obviously, I save before I stop playing.
