    PLS DONT DELETE ADMINS!
    So I just found an app in the Play Store that can read and write NFC Tags with any chip(dont quote me on that), the apps name is NFC Tools. The reason im saying this is because Ive been looking into emulating amiibo characters as they are like 40-80RON.

    There's nothing illegal about reading and writing NFC tags. I've heard of someone who put one on his phone charger so his lights would turn off when he set his phone to charge

    Is it specifically for amiibo? Because NFC tags can be used to contain details such as Email Addresses or Websites so it is most likely supposed to be for things like that.

    I own plenty of NFC tags that I can play with, I usually use them to prank people by having them open a porn website or something when scanned by a phone.

    You can't just copy an Amiibo NFC tag though, I believe they're encrypted.

    A quick search will provide the answers you need. Yes you can use an android smartphone to write amiibo to blank tags. Search for Tagmo and you should get all the info you need :)

    It seems it isn't limited by any means though. You can still use as many as you want, you can only have 200 stored at once though.
