    It can still risk a ban. Weigh your Pokemon save data versus your console's online functionality to see which one is more important to you.

    One or two months ago i read about a girl who used checkpoint to update a nsp splatoon save (if i recall correctly, i don't really remember that specific detail) from a banned console to a new one, and the new one was banned in a week or two. Just using checkpoint and injecting a save can upset Ninty, so you should be cautious with that

    Messing with splatoon 2 (and other online games) save data is known to cause bans.

    You can unlink an account via the website, once per year, even from a banned Switch. Any cloud saves up to the point of ban can be retrieved (assuming paid online), as can any legit purchase.

    Also for the record I have used checkpoint to move saves from banned>hacked non-banned>non hacked. Whilst connected to internet on non-banned/non hacked, and changing users of said saves. No bans. Saves were MHGU and Skyrim. Your mileage may vary, as ever only mess around if you're willing to take a ban.

    I'd only be transferring over my pokemon save really, maybe my smash and that's it. Both are legit saves too.

    @MikeTheory use HDM and checkpoint for transferring the Save from legit - > hack, hack - > legit, 100% safe

    U only need checkpoint on the hack one and HDM for both

    if you log in to your Nintendo account on their website there's an option in account management to delink all consoles or you can call support and get them to move the account to a new console, just say you forgot to unlink it when you sold it and they just need the serial of the new one and can manually link it

    Awesome! Is there a guide that explains how to use HDM and how to put the save file onto my switch?

    Thanks!
