    I bought Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky from the eShop, and I want to transfer/inject my DraStic (Android) save into it. But I have no idea how to do it. Does anyone know how to do it?

    Edit:
    I forgot to mention, I have installed Haxchi and have Saviine and Loadiine installed already.

    yes it's possible, i did it to go further on Professor Layton and the Last Specter and i did. but the problem continue after.

    you must know the ID of the game and the support WIIU/USB

    i use FTPU everywhere

    /storage_usb/usr/save/00050000/10179f02/user/80000003/LAYTON3C3JF01_0123456789012345678901234567890123456789_0.save

    1rst dir the storage USB or storage_
    mlc usr/save/00050000
    here a example layton

    there's 3 files , the one you change is the .save 64K size

    LAYTON3C3JF01_0123456789012345678901234567890123456789_0.save
    rename your save to the same and overwrite it
    that's it.

    How would I find out the ID? Also, after I swap out the save file, could I then transfer the USB save to system memory?

    Does it work backwards too when I want to transfer the save from virtual console to a real console?

    The game's save file is the same format, on cartridge, flashcart, or emulator. Between DS, DSi, and 3DS. The only thing that could make it fail is if you're using a problem cartridge (such as WarioWare DIY) or if the emulator mangles the save file for some reason.

    The Virtual Console emulator has a file for the save state, a file for the config, and then the actual save. It's easy to recognise which is which via the file size.
