    I heard the 3DS and 3DSXL take memories to put files and games on, so do the games refer to ROM games or something else?

    I do have a few games on ROM format but not sure if they will work on a regular memory card for a 3DSXL. Also which memory cards will work with all of the Pokemon games? i,e, Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, Plantinum, Heartgold, Soul Silver, Black, White, Black 2, White 2, X, Y, Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire.

    Hmm this question sounds more like a Homebrew Development and Emulators question but I will try my best to answer with what I know. So the 3DS/XL has a couple options to get your backed up games working on it. There is the SKY3DS and Gateway 3DS for loading 3DS backups or install the backups as cia files directly to your systems SD card, if you want to play older games then you will still need to install emulators via cia and the like. It's not as simple as taking a backup, ROM dump of the game, and placing it on your system's SD card.

    In order to do any of this you first need to be on an exploitable firmware, if you are looking to just run DS backups then you might want to check the R4i as a loader.

    About memory cards, there are a lot of brands out there, I prefer Samsung, Transcend, SanDisk (sometimes), PNY, most major brands are decent and you can check some reviews out on them before purchase.
