Can one do a system transfer to a new Switch after getting banned from a previous unit?

    Regular ban or super ban.

    Just wondering because I've thought about having a 2nd Switch purely for Switch games and online and having my hackable Switch for basically anything and everything else. With 6.0, it seems more people are supposedly getting hit with the ban hammer. I'm still on 5.1.0 (and deleted all internet settings), and while on my Switch I've only dealt with homebrew through SX OS, I'm thinking that if/when I update my Switch to 6.0, I'll sooner or later get hit with a ban as well. But if I can do a transfer after I get banned, then I can just wait until that happens before buying one, as I'm still unsure about getting a 2nd one in the first place.

    Like, if I have two, then one would be purely for homebrew and such, but, if that's all it's going to be used for, then why have that and not something else that could be more practical? But of course if I get banned, then I'll have to get a 2nd Switch if I want to play online.

    No, you can't system transfer after getting banned. At best you can unlink your account and relink with the new switch to get your purchases. You won't be able to keep your saves

    Hmm, what about if when I update to 6.0, then immediately get all my compatible saves on the cloud (with subscription purchase)? I imagine if I were to get banned, it may take a bit.

    If you can get them before you get banned, but I've heard reports of people getting banned almost immediately after updating so it's extremely risky
