    I have an issue coming up December when the Poketransporter comes out.

    I have worked on maybe 10+ different Pokemon games all on an Acekard on a DS Lite. I've worked hard and obtained all legit Pokemon up until Black2/White2 with a completed Pokedex.


    The problem is that the Acekard will not work on the 3DS. You cannot get the Pokebank/transporters on anything but the 3DS. So what should I do?

    I thought about using a friend's Pokemon Black2 cartridge to painstakingly trade them all over after he transfers all of his off, and then transfer mine, but that would take foreverrr. Is there any other method I should be aware of?

    buy a retail game, then, there is a method to tranfer your save data to the original cartdrige (I'll search dor the link to give it to you), and tah dah!! your legit PKMN will be in Pokémon X/Y in December ;D

    Ooh really? Did you find the link?

    The only method I found online that you could do this, is by buying the Action Replay DS Max- and then using http://shunyweb.info/convert.php to convert your Acekard (or other .sav format) into Action Replay's .duc format. You then Use the Action Replay to put the save file into the game as far as I know.

    There is also https://www.pokecheck.org/ this method of uploading them to pokecheck's fake GTS, but it may be just as slow as trading each one individually to a real cartridge.

    There also seems to be this method to upload sav files to a real cartridge from R4 or wtvr flascart: http://neetgamer.com/guides/back-up-your-nintendo-ds-save-games/ but it is more complicated lol. Plus I'm not sure if you would have to convert your .sav file because this method is to back up a real cartridge save, not use an already backed up flashcart save.

    There is also something like this http://www.amazon.com/NDS-Adapter-Plus-Nintendo-Windows-PC/dp/B007QVG3LG. It backs up your saves on a DS game then can restore them. I'm not sure if I could use it to "restore" a .sav file I already have from a flashcart.

    I have no fucking idea.
    As far as we know it needs direct access to a retail cartridge for the save, where as on a flashcart, it has multiple saves so it wouldnt know what to load

    If you have a GBA expansion pack like the EZ flash 3in1 you can use Rudolph's tool to write the savegame to a retail game.

    No, it will only work with a retail Pokemon BW/BW2 cartridge.

    Yes, you can local trade or Wi-Fi trade Pokemon from a flashcart to a retail cartridge, and they will be able to be transferred from the retail cartridge to the Pokemon Bank system/XY.
