    So I found the leaked .3DS and .CIA files and tried to play them with my Gateway 3DS card. However, I haven't been successful. After placing the .3DS file onto the microSD Card of the red Gateway card, the game showed up in white from the rom selection and didn't have a logo.

    Regarding the CIA, my 3DS SD Card only has 2.7GB of space while the CIA is 3.x GB big meaning that it doesn't fit onto it no matter what. The only other bigger SD Card I can use is 64GB from the Wii U (also formatted as FAT32) but whenever I start the Gateway launcher website with that SD Card inserted, it send me back to the home menu with an error message so I'm wondering why the 64GB SD Card is not working.

    Which steps should I take to resolve this? Buy a 32GB SD Card?

    The .3ds is broken, and only the cia can work atm, we need to wait for a real .3ds dump

    Also can can decrypt the cia, and compil it as .3ds (4gb card2)

    or if it doesn't work, yes a 32GB SD card

    Converting it to 3DS does the same thing, it stays white in the rom selector menu and nothing happens when it's loaded. I used this tutorial.

    Make sure to update the gateway launcher.dat and also you possibly need to update the emunand to the latest

    The nfo also says you should use exfat instead of fat32, so maybe thats your problem? Or simple a corrupt file transfer / system.

    FAT32 can't hold 4GB (which another .3DS version of Pokémon Moon has) so I'm formatting as exFAT after cutting all files. The ROM I had before was only around 3GB. What a pain in the ass overall :P

    EDIT:
    Nevermind, there is Gateway's ROM splitter...

    EDIT 2:
    It's working so thanks everyone :)

    Could you please clarify what the fix was.
    I have the same issue from your original post.

    Yeah I was going to say, if there are people reading this in the future wondering about the 4GB limit on Sky3DS, there is a rom trimmer that drops the filesize of .3DS files as well.

    The fix was a different ROM
