    Hi, im having retail save issue since gateway doesnt read 6.x savefiles.
    Was thinking of purchasing pokebank to transfer all of my Pokemon.
    Does it works this way on gateway?

    I just tried now, and it does not work if the cartridge was used without Gateway classic mode.

    To mass transfert your Pokémon I see only one possibility:

    1- Pokebank on your non GW console
    2- transfert all the boxes in
    3- transfert all Pokebank boxes in a japanese cart
    4- use a SaveEditor2 to extract the save
    5- transfert the save with SaveDataFilter in a ROM
    6- use another pokebank account on your GW 3DS

    If someone has a better solution...

    Edit 1:
    I read your other thread, and saw you have a PowerSave. Maybe another trick:

    Iirc, PKHex can partially read a PowerSave dump save. If you can, save all your Pokémon on your (physical) PC and add them in your ORAS ROM save dump with SaveDataFilter. ;)

    1- Dump your ORAS game with PowerSave
    2- Try to read the save with PKHex. If it works, save your Pokémons in *.pk6 files
    3- Dump your ORAS ROM save with SaveDataFilter on gateway (you need to install the cia)
    4- Read the save with PKHex, and add the Pokémons. Save the edits.
    5- Inject back the save in your ROM with SaveDataFilter

    Edit 2:
    Or better if it works: try to inject the dumped PowerSave save with PkHex and SaveDataFiler. But really not sure about it...

    Edit 3:
    Zidapi have the best solution :

    1- Run the DS exploit without GW in the cart slot
    2- In GW menu choose "Dump Game Cartridge"
    3- Your game and its save are now dumped as *.3ds rom in the 3DS SD card
    4- Put the *.3ds file in the GW µSD card and rename it in *.3dz
    5- Extract the save with SaveDataFiler
    6- Inject back the save in the ROM with SaveDataFiler

    I am currently testing it...

    Edit 4:
    Zidapi trick does not work. The save of the dumped ROM appears as broken on SaveDataFiler.

    Try the PowerSave -> PKHex -> SaveDataFiler method (edit 2), if this is not work try edit 1 method.

    Dump game. Copy to gateway card. Select relevant game. Export save from freshly dumped ROM with SaveDataFiler. Import save with SaveDataFiler.

    While Gateway is unable to load a game with a 6.x save; SaveDataFiler has no issues detecting, decrypting and exporting a 6.x save. It should, when you import your now decrypted save, encrypt it with the save encryption gateway uses.

    If you have already a sysnand < 9.3, the Pokebank and its latest update, you will may be able to use it later on GW.

    But it is hard to say, GW 9.x support is not released yet and we do not know how it will work.

    I don't think SDF reads 6.x saves. This is the first I've heard of it doing so.

    5 minutes least before I can confirm it or not. ;)

    Edit: Does not work, the save appears as "broken".

    Damn, I was sure that would work.
    I thought I'd done it myself in the past. I guess I got my wires crossed.

    Sorry to get everyone's hopes up. :wacko:

    If it doesn't, it's purely Gateway's doing. Much like SaveDataFiler being unable to extract card1 games.
    I'm pretty sure (not as confident in my recollections now. :unsure: ) the version of SaveDataFiler we're all using is from the 6.x SDK.

    How many pokemon are you trying to transfer? Do you know someone with another DS that could use your cart, and then trade from your retail cart to your gateway card? I know it's inconvient and a lot more work but if no other option works with trying to directly transfer your save, this will always work. Problem might be finding someone else with a 3ds. Again sorry I know it doesn't completely answer your question, but it would be a way for you to transfer your pokemon from your retail game to your current GW one. I had to convert my rom to a .3dz and knew my save was going to be corrupt so I caught a bunch of low level junk on my girlfriends game, traded with the real pokemon and items I wanted to keep, edited my rom and started a new game, recaught low level crappy stuff and traded them back. Was a process but it worked!

    To be really sure, are you agree with the process that I followed?

    Edit: After a quick look at this -> https://gbatemp.net/threads/question-about-pokemon-y-x-dump.373905/
    The only way would be to convert the game as a CIA, and not as a GW ROM. I cannot test it right now... But I doubt about it.
