File extension .PKM
|Pokemon Saved Game Data Format
The PKM file is a .PKM (short for "Pocket Monster") file generated by various Pokémon game role-playing games. It contains saved game data and player profile information including statistics, items, Pokémon team, Pokemon moves, badges, and player locations. Most commonly used by the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, which stores multiple PKM files on the Player's device.
PKM files are supported in many versions of Pokémon, such as Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, and the downloadable Wiiware game PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure. Additionally, PKM files can also be opened by 3rd party game editors such as PokéSave. Other related file types include .PFT, .PGT, .SAV, and .BAK.
Import And Export Of Data
Data contained in a PKM file can be exported to other compatible applications or other players. This process is performed through an exported file format called the.XML Data Transfer File. After the transfer is complete, the imported data merges with existing data stored in a PKM file.
Editing File Content
PKM files can be opened with various 3rd party programs that allow users to manipulate their content. However, some apps capable of editing PKM files tend to corrupt them, so it's recommended to create copies of original files before editing them. Additionally, user may also be able to preview and convert PKM files to other formats through certain online converters.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PKM) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .PKM extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .PKM file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .PKM extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .PKM extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PKM file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PKM file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .PKM file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PKM file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PKM file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
