GSC Stadium 2 question

As we know, resetting the game in Pokémon Stadium 2's GB Tower during the cloning glitch can create a bad clone. Specifically, you have to reset when the "saving" message appears at the bottom of the screen.

I noticed today while clearing my save data via GB Tower (with Up+Select+B sequence) that the same "saving" (or at least a similar one, I didn't pay close attention to fully confirm) message appeared at the bottom of the screen. So if you power off the game at this point, is it possible to create a playable but glitched save, and what would this do to the save file?

That's not impossible. I think the Stadium 2 emulator has a copy of SRAM in the N64's RAM, and sends it to the Game Boy cartridge (that's what the message indicates); so yes, you could create a partially-written save file using this. Unless there's a safeguard, but I heavily doubt it.
However, the checksums might not match, so the game might end up loading the backup save.
