    try to search private header. Even gateway will be banned if you don't use private header for .3ds game

    You'll need to either be on 9.2 or lower FW (in which case you likely wouldn't have a Sky3ds) - Get Powersaves adapter (Pretty sure you can rip a header with that) - Buy a ripped header off someone (Best to have the cart shipped to you too) - or know someone with 9.2 or lower FW / Gateway to rip the header off one of your retail carts.

    *You can use an offline games header for all your online games*

    @wendeng NEVER buy a header from someone buy a cheap 5$ bin game and rip the header yourself using powersaves and following this tutorial https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-get-your-private-header-using-powersaves.385511/ . Also im not sure bank will work with a sky3ds card at all, if someone with more posts and speaks complete english to confirm this that would be nice.

    So long as he buys Pokebank from the eshop & has a private header to go with his game (to prevent a temp-ban) of course it'd work.

    No need to say NEVER buy a header from someone, there are a number of trusted people on this forum & others that will buy those $5 bin games and sell the header for as much as a courtesy to others. It's just an option for those who wouldn't want to buy a powersaves adapter or know anyone with a gateway / proper fw 3ds.

    Yes you can use any header as long it for a game you own and will never sell to anyone or let someone use it. Or you can find someone trusted that can rip one for you like @usernametaken suggested but this is something I would never do as you cant really trust anyone completely online.

    You can use 1 header from a retail cart to play any of your online .3ds games. As long as there is no duplicate of your header online while you are, then you should be safe.
