    In some 3ds games there are events that happen based on how much time has passed. Unfortunately, changing time in System Settings doesn't work in some cases, one of them being Pokemon Sun and Moon demo. This tutorial shows how to skip waiting anyway! :yay3ds:

    Requirements:
    -cfw
    -config tool from sdk installed, that's why you need cfw :P (don't ask me where to find it)

    Steps:
    1. Open sdk config tool
    2. Select "Raw Rtc Setting"
    3. Change time and press A to save & reboot
    4. Open your game
    5. ???
    6. PROFIT! :D

    NOTE: In Sun and Moon demo you have to change time to EXACTLY right day or it won't work (if something happens after 6 days it happens exactly after 6 days, it won't work after 7)

    Btw

    Yes, I even made a video of event that's supposed to occur after 18 days

    Not everybody has a 3DS with access to the Config app and wants to wait 24 days for an event. lol

    Will the game be able to detect the time has changed? Because some games I have give some kind of penalty for changing the time through settings.

    Not with this method, it's specifically designed to avoid checks.

    Why would a game encourage you to not play it?

    "Config cia" should be available on "that iso/chaos site" either by it self or in a bundle of SDK apps.

    FBI will do it automatically. If it dosen't appear after you install it reboot your console.
