    No, it needs Luma 7.0+ (as specified everywhere the CFW is mentioned in the OP and second post). Follow this guide to update to boot9strap so you can use the latest Luma3DS version. The process is very quick (less than five minutes) and mostly consists of downloading and placing files on the SD card.

    If you can't take five minutes to update your Luma to 8.x, download Luma 7.0.5 from here and use it alongside a9lh. Luma 7.x is compatible with a9lh.

    I realized that it wasn't the patch causing my RNG calculations to be wrong. Matsuda Method goes off the Pokemon's Language (if it has the mark on the top right of the top screen saying it's another Language), not 3ds Country data now. I wasn't doing Matsuda, but thought I was, clicking it on the RNG program and it was causing my math to be wrong.

    Sorry Dio for the mixup. :yay3ds:

    Has anyone managed to build the CIA version successfully, especially the Expanded build? I've tried both sun and moon on two different Windows 10 PCs, several times each, using 3DS and CIA sources, and I always get errors no matter what I try. Sometimes it doesn't generate a CIA file at all, and sometimes it generates a CIA file that's way too small (300KB - 400MB for a game that should be 3GB).

    Make sure there's room on your hard disk and you have a fair amount of RAM. 3dstool took 6GB while building the CIAs for me.

    On my laptop, I have over 300GB of free space on my hard disk and 12GB of RAM. Still doesn't work right.

    Oh well. At least you can use the Drag and Drop method on any 3DS that could install a CIA.

    Yeah, eventually I gave up and just used the Drag and Drop method with Luma, but it would be nice to be able to use it in Gateway mode instead of rebooting to Luma specifically for this game

    From what I've been able to play so far, using Luma's game patching, it looks nice. I definitely noticed the higher difficulty curve when I went into the Trainer School unprepared and got thrashed by Joey.

    EDIT: Finally got to the first trial, and I have to say that this is the first time in years that I've legitimately wanted to rage quit a pokemon game for being too hard.

    Uncompress error means you need to decrypt the ROM.
