    Pokemon Sun and Moon are available to preload today and I was wondering if there was a way to preload it for free and not need to install 3.3/6.6GB on launch.

    24000 isn't all that huge, most people have at least 16gb cards on their 3DS nowadays, I'm even gonna upgrade to a 32gb one soon enough.

    I suggest using CDN-FX or FunKeyCIA to download it and transfer it to your SD to install, FBI takes forever (was locked to exactly .25 MB/s for me) and I wasn't able to figure out how to download it with FreeShop

    FunKeyCIA was a bit faster than CDN-FX but you need Python27 and CTR Toolkit, although they both downloaded incredibly quickly.

    the title key is known, you can install it. but you cannot play it because we don't have the seed. once we have the seed, you can inport the seed and play it

    Can Nintendo track that you didn't buy the game, like if you have a NNID linked? Can you get in trouble for using tikdevil?
