    HI! So here's what happened : My XL went dead but I believe the problem is with the top screen cables being damaged. I was able to salvage an old 3ds from one of my friends and hacked it (probably not relevant but the charging port is busted, so I use the dead one to charge it's battery).

    I would really like to get my mons back from my digital copy of Alpha Sapphire (150+ hours of playtime...ugh) if i buy another one. Is there a way to get them back if I switch my nintendo ID to another ds or can I replicate them by reading the save file ?

    TL,DR Heres what I have at my disposal:

    • pokemon sun
    • an old hacked 3ds
    • busted 3ds XL .......X(
    • busted 3ds' XL memory card * with digital copy of alpha sapphire and other saves
    • legit pokebank account
    Any idea on what's my best options here to get my save files or mons back ? I would really appreciate any help.

    Thanks,

    Jane

    If you have a AS save backup use JKSM to restore it

    You will have to have backed up the save beforehand. If you don't know how to use JKSM or SaveDataFiler then I'd assume you never backed up the save.

    Edit: you could do a motherboard swap into a working 3DS XL so it will turn on and you can back up the save.
