    So as you all probably heard, you can transfer pokemon from gen5 to gen6 through an app.
    Many of us, including me, however, haven't exactly "purchased" a retail copy of a gen5 game. *Coughromscough*

    so anyways, I got myself a retail copy of B2 and am wondering, what format do you need to use to write the save from a flashcart onto the cartridge with a R4i save dongle?

    Do I have to convert to raw? or is the SCDS2 format just fine?

    a have tried with the EZ-Flash Vi format to extract and insert a sav file and it works very well, so SCDS2 should work in the same way, I used this hombrew:
