Hi,
I play Pokémon sword in my hacked switch - didn't edit or change anything I play normally.
I have a clean switch lite and the Pokémon sword game.
I want to transfer my hack switch save to the clean switch - how can I do it without getting ban?
and If it is impossible can I transfer all my Pokémon without getting ban?

What kind of CFW are you using? Atmosphere or SX? If Atmos, it is OK but SX carry ban risk if you have error codes related to CFW. Use Atmos to transfer the save so you have to be 100% offline by discontinue or delete the WiFi setting - it should minimize the ban risk. I prefer Atmos because they put error codes in SD instead of NAND so Nintendo won't able to find out.

Alternatively, you can back your save up in hacked Switch and use Switch save transfer feature to transfer the save from hacked Switch to unhacked Switch, also both of your Switches must be on OFW (original firmware, not CFW) before start transfer because they require online.

I was able to log online with cfw, and transfer pokemon shield save data from my hacked switch to my legal switch, easily without problems

Probably better if you just transfer pokemon/item over, not worth the risk of getting a ban.

[This was done with Atmosphere. Also, I'm not responsible for any sort of damage, penalty or ban if you follow any of the steps I did]

I just extract my save from emuMMC with checkpoint, then I boot to offline SysNand CFW and restore the save there.

Afterwards, I boot into Stock SysNand and transfer the save via "Transfer Data" option to the other switch.

(Both Switches need to be online for the Save Transfer, and I believe they have to be from the same account as well).

You should be fine if you just want to transfer the save data you already played on the hacked unit if you didn't temper with your save data like save editing with pkhex. Do keep in mind you need to have a legit copy of the game on the hacked unit also, you can't connect to your account and transfer save with backup on the hacked unit you will just get ban for it.

Too bad you can't transfer in batch from one unit to another so you just going to have to do the trade one by one if you ever plan to edit pokemon via pkhex and transfer them over.

But that is save data transfer not trading pokemon over from one unit to another, he wanted to know if there was an easier way to transfer a bunch of pokemon over at once.

If you have used NSP then you should not link your Nintendo ID, you would just get a ban on the hacked unit. If you have a cart you need to transfer the save data from a NAND with no nsp installed.

What you can do is backup your save, use your cart with a clean nand if you have one and then inject and transfer the save, they are less likely to go after you if you just inject save not piracy involve.
If you dont have legal pokemon in cfw, you could log in cfw (without nsp games), transfer the save data (extract and mod if u want), reinject and send back to legal switch, its a good choice to send ALL pokemons in a few muin

Either clean your nand or risk it going online (without nsp games installed) and transfer the save (must be the same profile)
