    Hi everyone, I know it might sound like a noob question but "better safe than sorry"...

    I own a N3DSXL on sysnand9.0 / emunand 9.5 and a Gateway. I updated Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (CIA game) to the latest version (1.4) with a CIA (as I can't access eshop and don't own cubic ninja to spoof firmware).

    I'll participate in a Pokémon VGC tournament next sunday. The games will be played through local play with other people, which will have for sure the latest sysnand 9.7 firmware.

    So, am I taking a risk to get the update nag through local play with my 9.5 emunand n3ds ?

    I know there is a risk when the internet is on and the 3ds on sleep mode but dont' know for local play.

    Thanks for your answers, gbatempers !

    You'll be able to play local with other people without a problem. The update popup won't overlay your game, as usual if it appears, it'll be after you close / go to home screen.

    No, it seems to be random. Only had it pop up once for me in the numerous times i've lan'd with a friend on latest fw. Doing Poke transfers & smash.
