'''Pokésav''' is a program that edits {{game5game |Diamond|Pearl|Platinum|HeartGold|SoulSilver|Black|White}} save files, developed by a Japanese programmer named 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 or a cheating device such as the Gameshark Duo. The application can also export [[Action Replay]] DS codes, which when activated 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.
