Hello guys just wondering is there anyway to run normal ds games (pokemon plat,black,white ect) on a 3ds with luma3ds and arm9loader hax without any flashcards or anything?

If not how could I go about it and what is the cheapest option that would work for me?:)

This question is asked like 3 times a day and it's always the same answer. There are currently only 3 methods of playing DS games on a 3DS.
1: Flashcart: Suggestion R4i Gold from r4ids.cn
2: 3DeSmume: Which is no where near as good a flashcart.
3: Simply buying the game
Once there is another method, you can rest assured that a google search will reveal it.

Why suggest R4I gold? Super card Dstwo is also good. :P
When you said 3DeSmume, i assumed you meant the pc emulator. I didn't know there was a DS emulator for 3DS. Cool anyway, thanks for that. :)
Also the third option is best option to be honest. :D

The DSTwo kills battery life and the only redeeming feature for it is no longer needed with CFW's. You can now play GBA and SNES games without it, so basically it's just in your 3DS, killing your battery.

Get a DSTT if you want to use flashcart forwarders, or an acekard 2i otherwise.

The R4 is good, if you get the right one; there are so many R4s that have timebombs that they're kind of dangerous to buy, unless you know for a fact that the one you're getting is good.

Well i didn't know that. If that was the case i maybe would have gotten it. IT also has anti piracy patches?
All flashcarts nowadays either have Anti-AP or have updated to 100% perfect compatibility.

    Yeah it works great but it's the obvious Ds factor you loose from it it's not like playing atari games on atari because Nintendo actually use to give a reason to buy their hardware

    Honestly Ken I actually have the hardware and it's hacked and works fine, prefer my phone lol
