    i'm thinking he removed the cartridge before saving the pokebank or something. not about to try it myself

    edit: scratch that, seems something weird going on.

    I thought he clicked out the cartridge, as it sounded like that, but I tried doing this as fast as possible myself after 5 spins on the progress bar - it simply gave a connection error and stopped the progress.
    It just came to my mind that he might have clicked the SD card out, but I'm not going to try that, as I don't want that to get corrupted :<

    I thought the same thing , I think Pokebank saves data to the cartridge and he ejected the game out while pokebank was saving the data or something like that

    Try ejecting after 2.5 - 3.2 rounds.

    1-Backup your save with Powersaves3ds
    2-Deposit pokemon in bank
    3-Restore your save
    Wash, Rinse, Repeat
    What is the mystery?

    This method is dangerous, I was able to do it, but lost my Celebi in the process. If you want to attempt it, how you do it is simple. Click x to save, when the circle has gone around about 3.5 times, eject the game and hold the power button and turn the 3ds off at the same time.

    I was able to clone the celebi I got from pokebank. I then tried to clone both of the celebi at once, and when I turned the power back on, they where both gone.

    You should first test with a pokemon that you don't care about.
