I know this is a bit redundant after what has happened, but has anyone ever had their Special Attack stat (not experience) reset to zero after the first battle in Battle Tower?

Whether I win or lose, whether my first pokemon (the one whose stat is set to zero) faints or not, it doesn't seem to matter...

Any help on this would be appreciated, but I won't be surprised if this isn't reponded to soon...

However, thanks in advance for any help...

So, you mean if you look at the STATS of your Pokémon after the battle it might say something like this...?

HP: 310
Attack: 180
Defense: 50
Speed: 175
Special Attack: 0
Special Defense: 288

Is that what ya mean?

If so, that's odd, have you done any GameSharking?

That happens on my ROM, but not on the GB. I wonder if Nintendo's cottoned onto Gamesharkery.

MK - Yes, that's what I meant.

Calavera - This is currently on my cart, but it also happened on my ROM, but I figured it was just a problem with the ROM...

I've asked around on the net, and a certain batch of carts seem to be the problem. I asked Nintendo via e-mail, and their reply?
