    Hi guys,

    This is my situation. I have a DS Lite which I am going to be playing Pokemon Heart Gold on. The reason for this is so that I can fill my Pokedex and then migrate all of the Pokemon across to my 3DS XL with Pokemon Black 2 game cartridge.

    Will this actually work?

    So basically I'm going to collect every Pokemon on Heart Gold on an r4 card. Then transfer them all across to my Pokemon Black 2 game which is an official cartridge.

    Any help?

    Do you mean trading them through the in-game trade stuff?

    Yeah in-game wifi and trade stuff works just fine on modern flash carts.

    Hmm you see this is my situation. I have a 3ds xl which I have been playing Pokemon Black 2 on. I've found all pokemon in the Unova region. I now need all the pokemon from Johto. These pokemon are in Heart Gold which I am currently playing on my NDS.

    When you complete the game you get to a section where you have the chance to "migrate" all pokemon you have caught on heart gold to another game. So in this case I will be migrating all pokemon I've caught on heart gold across to Pokemon black 2 which is in my 3ds xl....

    Will this work? This isn't trading either...

    Ah, yeah that uses download-play to access a non-booted cart. Since your Gen-IV is a ROM on a flash cart, it will not work.

    You could transfer the save to an actual Heartgold cartridge on the DS Lite and it'd work.
