    Yup, that's it :). As long as it also supports Pokémon Black and White (that's what makes this tool special).

    I'm not really sure if it's possible to port it to the 3DS. It might be, but i don't think so. Check this site out and it will tell you what you can do because of what you have.

    Maybe you could make something that loads it from DS mode in the browser?

    Ah, I already know about everything stated on the site. I was just hoping that it would be possible to use a 3DS instead.

    Ok but then either you need to get any of these things or keep the pokemon saves on the cartridges.

    Hmmm. Well, think about it... Pokemon Bank can access the save data on retail cards, right? I'm sure homebrew can too :D

    The problem isn't CAN it be done, the problem is "has anyone figured out everything you'd need to do in order to accomplish it" and the answer is apparently, no.

    Apparently, Stevice10 and others are working on a lib which supports such a thing :) of course, this is what I've been told...

    There's an R4 save dongle for PC that can do this but that requires you to pay for something.
    If you wanted a tool for 3DS, TWLSaveTool is exactly what you want. However you need to either buy one of 2 Pokemon games (Poke Transporter or Pokemon Dream Radar) or install a CFW. Otherwise it's perfect for your needs and even supports deleting saves!

    This thread is nearly 2 years old, ya know. Although your reply isn't wrong, it's kind of useless to revive this old thread.

    Update: I found a way to circumvent the "paying money" issue.
    I have a Poke Transporter QR code for eShop. You go to the home menu, press L+R, select the QR Code option and scan it. You basically skip having to get it via PokeBank. I haven't tested it yet but for people who haven't downloaded Poke Transporter who want to PM me and I'll send it to you.
