'''Pokésav''' is a program that edits {{game|Diamond}}, {{game|Pearl}}, {{game|Platinum}}, {{game|HeartGold}}, {{game|SoulSilver}}, {{game|Black}}, {{game|White}}, and [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|Pokémon Black 2]] save files, developed by a Japanese programmer by the name of COM. One version works with any Diamond or Pearl save file, and another works with Platinum, including those backed up from a commercial cartridge using a flashcart such as the R4 or a cheating device such as the GameShark Duo. The application can also export [[Action Replay]] DS codes; when activated, the codes will provide the same effects in-game as editing the save file.
With Pokésav, players can edit many aspects of the game including Pokémon, their movesets, the inventory, and in-game records. Because of this, many people consider it to be a "hacking" program used to gain an unfair advantage in competitive play. Creating a Pokémon of any caliber may only take a few minutes with the use of Pokésav, whereas it may take hours and hours to legitimately breed and train the same Pokémon. This brings up questions as to whether the use of the program is ethical. Despite this benefit, there is still the risk of corrupting a save file while using Pokésav. As a precaution it is strongly advised that anyone attempting to use the program back up their save file before doing so. However with the release of updated versions this has been worked on.
A new version of Pokésav was released compatible with {{2v2|Black|White}}. This version has been fully translated into English by jsparrow<!--Clone's 0.06c is still incomplete-->. As of 31 October 2010 the latest version is 0.06c. This version does not edit Gym Badges. With the increasing use of PokeGen and Japan's internet piracy laws, there have been no new versions from COM since.
