    Sometimes there are areas of a game that people like to save their progress in before progressing, such as legendaries, important plot events or even an important battle. As the title says; how often do you save your game? Are there any particular areas in game that you save at?

    I save before anything that is considered a boss, and I have a habit of saving twice when it's time to turn off the game for the day. And sometimes, I save twice before a boss.

    I save my game a little too often. I save it about every 5 minutes of gameplay just to be safe because I tend to mess up a lot when catching stuff and whatnot.

    I rarely save the game unless I'm forced to (like connecting to the internet or turning off the game) or a legendary is coming up. I really don't like saving unless I have to because what can I say? I live dangerously (not really).

    I save every time I leave a Pokémon Center or Pokemart, and before important battles like Elite Four, Gym Leaders, legendaries, etc. And I would say before I quit the game, but I usually quit in front of the Pokémon Center. B)

    Right before big fights (like gym leaders of the E4) and before legendary battles. Other than that, I don't save my game much unless I'm done playing for a little bit.

    I save my game constantly, probably between every ten to fifteen minutes. It's a habit born from playing Skryim on the highest difficulty. I save routinely, and then I save even more constantly when I'm approaching a plot point or legendary encounter.

    I save whenever I am about to face a legendary or after a cutscene during the gameplay and even after the storyline.

    I always save before a legendary or before the champion battle, besides that, I only save when I stop playing xD

    Usually I'll save whenever I'll remember too- this could mean a couple hours' difference or two minutes. But I'll definitely save before any troublesome Legendary encounters, important plot battles, and usually right outside the Pokémon League.

    Ohgosh I save like.. every five minutes, or every ten at the very least. That paranoia that my game/3DS will shut off or get wonky for no reason will never leave the back of my mind so I like to save often to be safe. Learned my lesson from not saving my Crystal version as a kid and being thrown back several gyms after I dropped the GBC, urgh. Never again. 8'<

    I save every time I put my 3DS to sleep, so that way in case I ran out of battery, I can stop by where I had left off where I closed my 3DS. No hesitation right there. :D

    I save pretty much only when I'm going to stop playing or before a legendary. I don't save before boss characters because I know I can beat them with ease, especially in newer Pokémon games. However, when I get a shiny I just don't stop saving, haha.

    Not often enough :/ Seriously, I forget to save my game a lot, luckily I always have my 3DS in the charger so I can never lose my progress, but still... I should really save my game more often, or I'd lose an insane amount of progress if something goes wrong :S

    I save in all the wrong places. I save far too many times when nothing special is happening, but in the heat of the moment when I'm near a Legendary, I always forget to save. I'm dumb sometimes. XP

    I save before gym and boss battles generally, and of course before I turn the game off. I have a bad habit of forgetting to save sometimes though;;
    A couple times I've intended to heal and save before turning off, but turned off after healing and not saving >_>;; Lots of progress lost at times like that
