    I guess when I take my memory card out of my 2ds and put it into the new 3ds xl that won't work. I haven't bought a new 3ds xl yet but when I do what procedures do I have to take? Do I have to do all the hacking again? And can I keep my files. Only files I care about right now is my Pokémon save files.

    You gotta install a9lh again and system transfer to the N3DS XL. Then put the microSD into it.

    First of all, follow https://3ds.guide to hack the new 3DS XL.

    Then, you can backup/restore saves using JKSM and System Transfer (which will transfer the Friend Code, legit titles, etc.),.

    Just get JKSM, backup all saves you want to, copy them to the PC, then System Transfer (it's in the Settings menu), install the games that didn't get through System Transfer, and restore the saves if needed, using JKSM.
