    Hi guys,

    I just wanted an information about save transfer.

    If I transfer my absolutely legit (without any hack, regular game) .cia save to a new retail cart, deleting the secret value of the cart in the process, does the retail cart retain any information of the original .cia?

    Specifically, if the retail cart has any sort of ID, does importing a .cia save delete this ID or replace it with the .cia ID?

    Thank you and sorry for the bother.

    It's game specific, the save storage is just that, a storage.
    If you talk about pokemon, there are several player and console unique id's in the save file.

    Thank you for the answer.

    So if I transfer my save to a pokemon .cia to a retail cart information about the .cia would remain? Also, I would play this retail cart in a different Nintendo 3DS

    CIA and 3DS are identical, so no info about cia, but about you console.
    Console unique id's are saved into it, they are used when you go online in the game.
    Id's: TransferableId, MyPrincipalId, NexUniqueID
