Well this is awesome! Now I don't have to get a physical cart to transfer Pokémon in Apricorn Balls from HGSS to OR for breeding. :>What are the pk6 files used for? Never used PKHeX before, so I'm new to all this.

THe project pokemon thread states you need a JP game and a JP system. So this cannot be used with other regions?
Also if true, put that in you post.

Not true, I have a European 3DS and also European game.

The .pk6 files are the replacement format for .pkm if you ever used Pokésav or Pokégen. These files contain all the information about a Pokémon. They can be extracted from and imported into the save file using File -> Open or Save As... in the menu bar of PKHeX.

Because I'm using Gateway and have to remove/re-insert the SD card into the console to do this, I find I have to power off my 3DS in order to remove or re-insert the SD card. The official documentation (and popups in the in the 3DS itself) makes it clear the user should not remove or insert an SD card without the console powered off.

Realistically, should I continue to power off when removing or inserting it, or is Nintendo being too paranoid?

It's a minor inconvenience that I'm willing to put up with to be able to use PKHeX, but would be cool if there wasn't much danger in keeping the 3DS on and in Gateway Mode throughout this process.

Edit: Nevermind, I'm stupid. EmuNAND is on the SD card. Don't mind me!

So it seems that the main file is what the AS ROM and physical OR cart were sharing. However, my eShop (legit) version of Pokémon Y is unaffected. I wanted to start a new playthrough of ORAS eventually anyway. Does someone know if I were to dump my OR cart and use that with PKHeX, if that would fuck with my Y eShop save? I think I might do it and make a backup of the SD card's contents before testing it out if no one knows. Still kinda bummed my OR cart's save is corrupted, but I Banked most of my Pokémon anyway, so it isn't a huge loss aside from the progress I'd made (e.g. I'd beaten the Elite 4 and completed Delta Episode).

You should fix something in your description.
This method only works for:
-Card 2 games (like Pokemon X/Y/OR/AS or Animal Crossing)
-CIA games
-Card 1 games that save to ROM (like Fantasy Life)

Any other game will not work.

Probably referring to the Cyber Gadget save editor which is region locked to JAP and is the only other option besides SaveDataFiler for save editing.
