    No, only if you buy the exact same cartridge later.

    Well, if a Nintendo console plays cartridges, it saves onto cartridges! :P Kind of weird...

    only if your 3ds can use homebrew and you backup your savestate with a backup manager like svdt.
    otherwise, no

    I made a guide on how to do this. There's just one problem: Unfortunately, none of the Pokemon games work.
