Is it okay if I take some time right now to have a personal rant

    I have recently gotten into Pokemon games quite a lot. I also want to buy a 3DS in June or so. I have followed the train-of-thought logic that future Pokemon games – perhaps even in the future – will be on the 3DS.

    The problem is – I have been deadest on the goal of the complete Pokedex, and am damn near close to it too. This means 649 Pokemon I have to maintain. I’m also very fond of the Pokesav/Pokegen programs – granted I do very little other than check IV/EV and tweak minor insignificant things, but the lack of access to those minor insignificant things will always bug me.

    I’ve come to the conclusion the 3DS will never be hacked. I was really young when the regular DS came out and I, not knowing much about the “internet” or “forums” didn’t know how long it took to hack and make flashcarts for it, but I know the 3DS hacking is taking a damn long time and have pessimistically decided the 3DS will never be hacked or emulated, meaning there can’t exist things like Pokesav/Pokegen. On top of that I’m having doubts about Action Replay availability for the 3DS as well.

    When the Pokemon games that come out on the 3DS do come out, I know that this is going to drive me absolutely nuts and and and and and and just AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH

    IMO, I don't think it's the right place to rant but I don't see where you'll have much of a problem. The method of getting those Pokemon and such will be repetitive but there's nothing much you can do besides gain some patience; Of course, i'm speakin of trading and all of those other fancy methods of evolution or gaining new Pokemon. The Pokesav junk will be missed for now but there's still no ruling out the system or files being hacked and what not.


    EDIT: @Foxi4: I totally forgot about saves already being messed with @_@

    No you don't, because you don't have a timeframe of reference. You can't say something takes a long time when you don't know how long it's supposed to take. The DS was released in 2004 while the first Passme devices have been popularized in about 2006 - that's two years of hacking attempts and then the spread of the device.
    You can ALREADY dump 3DS saves, edit them at will and re-flash them onto the cartridge, I can't see why you wouldn't be able to program a compatible PokeSav.

    You consider 8 months to have been a long time? The PS3 took like 5 years to get hacked.

    The 3DS will probably be hacked. Just give it time. Besides, usually in these situations having the earliest model is your best bet for high hack compatibility (look at early PSP/DS/Wii/360/PS3s) its always the early models that have the least problems being hacked.

    If you want a hacked 3DS in the future you should buy a 3DS now.

    The PS3 took 5 years because no one really cared to hack it when OtherOS was still around. When they took that off, then the hackers went to work.

    first off it doesn't need to be hacked. We can take the save file from retail 3DS carts...that means you can copy a 3ds save file to your computer.

    People will make save editors like pokesave 3ds for computer...... just like they did with the ds games.

    I have no worries abut it, and I hope the 3ds never has flash carts. Being able to download my save from a real cart is good enough for me!!!

    I'm only hoping for a 3DS flashcart for the sake of 3D homebrew.

    That's what everybody says, but we all know the people who "just" want homebrew, will also pirate.

    I use to defend piracy and all that but that was before I got a job, now I could not care less if it got hacked.

    Nothing is impossibile -- was what I expected to hear, but I guess many things are impossible...which doesn't include hacking the 3DS.
    What am I talking about? [Input sacarsm tone] Of course the 3DS is unhackable, since it's been like 9 months (or as others would say: a loooong time) since release date.

    What I see in this thread - OP QQing that he wants his haxx0rz for hiz pokuhmunnz.

    Dude, the 3DS hasn't even been out for a year yet. Not even an entire year.

    One of the problems with the DS, why it took longer to hack, is that it was a new device, and new ideas and devices were needed to hack it, and those take time to make. We have been able to play DS games on the 3DS since day 1 off of DSi/3DS compatible flashcarts. That means we're already a step in the right direction. Since launch, we've been able to do more with the 3DS than we could with the DS. The design is out there, just need new ways to implement it.

    What I'm really sick of is people profiting off of piracy.

    When it came to hacking the PSP it was done by people who gave out the code freely. That did result in the scene stagnating for a while whenever someone got sick of the haters and left, but in the end no one was exploiting anyone (except for the Pandora Battery cottage industry).

    With the DS though it's all done through flash carts made by Chinese companies. I know that because the DS didn't have any expandable memory that was the only means if egress when it came to the DS, but the DSi was no different even with it's SD slot. Basically, it would be great if when homebrew comes to the 3DS it is through the SD slot and not a flash cart so that no one is profiting from this stuff.

    I'm afraid my meagre C++ skillz are not up to the task.

    Also, I'm aware that it's ironic that I collect flash carts.

    That's the way to jump to conclusions. :glare:
    Seriously. I only want 3D homebrew.
