    Hi guys,

    Hope i'm in the right section to be asking this!

    I've recently learnt you can go online by using .cia versions of a game, i want to keep my progress from Pokemon Alpha Sapphire though, is there a way i can extract the asve from the .3ds version and inject it into a .cia version?

    You can use Nintendo's official Save Data Transfer Tool, that might be easier for you ;)
    But Pokemon is a card2 game (saves on the ROM chip instead of on a separate save chip) so you don't have to follow the instructions in that thread, you just need to export the save with SDF then import it to the CIA with the same app. You can skip the parts about renaming the save file.

    You have to download it from the eShop, it's a separate app.

    Oh ok, assume i have to mount my game before launching the app to start the transfer? also does it matter that the cia version of the game wil be updated to a newer version? Also would the region matter? I'm pretty sure the versions i have are both EU but better ask to be sure.

    I don't know if Nintendo's tool works with a .3ds... I would suggest savedatafiler.

    It's confusing me, any way you could word it out more 'dummy' for me? in case nintendos tool really doesn't work.

    It will work with Pokemon since they're card2 games. The system can't tell the difference.

    The installation is on 65%, should be done in 10 minutes so will give it a blast then.
