    trying to buy from this guy but he wants to format it. And he said it might take the update on format. I said disconnect from Internet and format. Would that work? I'd only want it from him if it's on 11.3 obviously.

    It won't be updated from formatting, it needs to connect to the internet to unlink the NNID though. Just make sure he knows you don't want it updated.

    You have to connect to the internet to delete the NNID, so it can inform Nintendo's servers.

    Unless it's a DSi/XL, the DS didn't have
    updatable firmware.
