    Okay..heres a noob question. I'm currently using an emulator to play pokemon white. If I were to buy a 3ds, with no cracking, and I purchased pokemon white on 3ds. Can I load my emulator's save files?

    No. There are methods to send over some pokemon and items, but not the save file itself (so not your progress).

    Why would Nintendo even allow such a thing? It'd encourage piracy/emulation over buying the actual systems.

    How are you going to get the save file onto the actual cart?

    He specified "no cracking", which in DS terms generally means no extra hardware usage.

    His main goal is to get his save file onto a retail cart.
    Since there is no way to do this without any extra hardware, and if he doesn't want to buy a flashcart, then the only way is by using one of those USB peripherals.
    (He would probably have asked about stuff like that soon or later anyway.)

    Someone isn't a cracker just because they use some premade software and hardware to copy a game-save onto a cartridge, otherwise lots of people would be calling themselves crackers :P

    On the bright side, if you did get an adapter you can do whatever you like to get whatever pokemon you like. Plus use it for 3DS things too.
