Ok,I know that Action Replay is NOT a good idea to use,but is there a way I can use it without messing up my game?
e.g Using only a few cheats at a time.

The only way to protect your game from Action Replay 100% is by not using it.

Nope. Action-replay will always have a chance of messing with your game. Though Pokegen and Pokesav are much safer alternatives(and are less looked down upon).

Just to clarify, it crashes from using too many codes at once. If you only use a few cheat codes, as Glameow said, I can almost guarantee it won't crash. The whole "it'll mess up your game" myth comes around from people using too many complex and specific codes at once.

They don't mess up your game...If you use to many cheats the Action Replay will just not work.

That is not true. It is a well known fact that AR can corrupt the save file.
Well i used to use it until it broke.It lasted for 2 years and my ds is still here and my pokemon platinum save file is still there...
My brother and I got the AR DSi.  I only used it to get 900 Master Balls for a test.  Then I gave it to my brother.
It lasted about 5 minutes.
