    So say I have a rom hack like Eternal X/Wilting Y or Neo X/Y and I want to play online which requires an update. Is it possible to patch the update to work with the hack? Eternal X and Wilting Y have a legal version which works with legit versions of the game but it require an update to play online right? I have seen modified updates of Neo X while google searching on piracy sites which leads me to believe that its possible. I want to avoid those sites though and would like to patch it myself with my own dumps. How do you do it? Is it possible? Thanks!

    patch will overwrite some data in the game.

    "Patch the Patch" itself, and inject files from the hack in the update

    I believe you could use 3dsdb. I searched update and it came up with the updates for x/y

    It's not like different updates have different title ids...


    If a game (with separate update pack) is 00040000-????????, the update is 0004000E-???????? :)

    Oh, I haven't played a Pokemon game in forever lol
    Sorry about that!

    I know Ryccardo already put up a good answer, but if you're like me and need to be super cautious about everything you can view title IDs through FBI
