    Either on a PC or flashcart? I'd prefer flashcart if possible so I can play it on the system it was native to.

    You can play it on a 3DS using Pasta (requires firmware <= 9.2).

    The latest no$gba does as well but limited stability and no saving.
    CFW recommended.

    I think AceKard runs in DSi mode? I could be very wrong about that though, so don't take my word for it.

    I don't think there was one from AceKard that ran in DSi mode. I think the main one that did was CycloDS iEvolution.

    So just to recap, CycloDS iEvolution is the only flashcart that can emulate DSiware right?

    Can anything on PC do it like DeSmuME?

    And I don't believe the CycloDSi could actually run DSiware. I may be wrong, but I think it was just capable of running games in DSi mode to utilize DSi enhanced features from various games.

    It didn't emulate, it just ran the DSi in DSi mode. As for DSiWare software, it couldn't run them. I don't think you're going to find any flashcart that can run DSiWare. 3DS CFW or just buying them off the eShop is your best bet on 3DS. DSi, well you just have to buy them off the store.

    I don't normally ever pirate and the only reason I am interested in emulation is because there were some DSiware titles not offered in the US I want to play and the DSiware shop channel is region locked. I'm not gonna buy an entire handheld to play 2-3 games, that's ridiculous.

    Ah, that's understandable. Unfortunately your options are very limited and have already been listed in this thread.

    Weird how DSi flash carts never became a thing.

    No dsiware dumps at the time and a severe lack of dsi-only carts.'

    Faster homebrew wasn't a good enough reason for most people.
