    I am unsure about if sky3ds or gateway-3ds support it (on their latest current fw). I will be playing OR, and i wanna know if i can transfer using pokebank. I only one answer for each cartridge.
    Thank you so much.

    Since Sky3DS is compatible with the latest firmware and emulates a cartridge game almost perfectly you should have no problem using it with Bank. Gateway also works with bank but that is with emuNAND which may not be compatible with 9.2.

    I successfully used Gateway 3DS emuNAND to transfer pokemon between a mounted omega ruby ROM and pokebank.

    I'll see what I can find, I don't have either card yet but Bank compatibility was very important for most 3DS flash cart users so I can't imagine Sky3DS would make their hardware inferior to Gateway's in that regard. Especially since it behaves like a retail cartridge for all intents and purposes.

    tbh the fact you can use pkhex with gateway means you dont even need pokebank for all you box transferring needs :P

    There's also PK2PK, which lets you convert the .pkm from Gen 3/4/5 to Gen6 .pkx and then load it on PkHex.
    I transferred events like Arceus, Darkrai, Genesect... from White 2 to Y easily.

    Since you can backup a save with sky3ds there no way to use a pkx ?
