    Hi All,

    A question i've seen answered plenty of times (i did do a search), but none of them recently.
    To explain, the recent pokemon announcement of pokemon home has got me hyped to be able to open up the switch generation to my saved up hoards of treasured catches and (enhanced but legit) other pokemon.

    With the recent (not so recent by now - i've been away from 3ds hacking for ages) ban waves for people connecting to nintendos servers i was wondering if its even possible for me to use pokemon bank anymore without facing a ban. For context I'm using B9S and my 3ds is rammed full of software that their servers will say i shouldn't have.

    So if when pokemon home etc are released can i resub to pokemon bank and happily migrate all my hard work to the new generation or will this result in;
    a) a variety of dlc and updates being wiped from my device upon connecting (i remember this happening in the past)
    b) being banned on my 3DS, Nintendo account that also has my switch, Switch etc.
    c) loss of money and sanity

    or some combination of all.

    Just looking to update myself on what the advice is on this in the scene these days as were coming to the point where pokemon bank can fulfill its ultimate purpose. Thanks for any help, im sorry if the informaton is out there already, all i could find were answers to the same question from too long ago to be relevant.

    i'm going to tell how it is. i bought a new 2DS XL which i didn't hack/mod i was planning to hack it once nintendo just stopped updating the 3ds anymore. now that we have Pokemon Home, i think Nintendo will update the 3DS for a while yet. i too didn't want my nintendo account to be banned which i too use it on my switch.

    my old 3ds was banned on almost every front. i had this error code which i was told its about you can't use Pokemon Bank. and i wanted to use Pokemon Bank.

    i still have my old 3ds for CFW purposes. im not telling you should go and get a new 3DS but damn i hope Nintendo is kind to us.

    The eShop (whether the main application, or the in-app one - the white-striped thing on the bottom screen as seen as when downloading updates directly from Home) - does indeed sync DLC licenses, removing any DLC that the server doesn't think you have* - this hasn't changed

    * it's not actually linked to what you can see in "account activity" - if you delete your eShop account, install unsigned DLCs, then run the eShop to recreate the account, whatever you currently have will stay

    3DS and WiiU (and Miiverse) use NNIDs; the new Club Nintendo, the switch, and Nintendo's iOS/Android games use the unrelated "Nintendo Accounts"

    And yes, there's no problem per se using pokebank , other NNID-based services, eShop, or multiplayer on a modded 3DS

    I haven't updated my CFW in a while, can I just install a CIA of the latest Pokemon bank, or do I have to be on the latest version?

    I dont even know how to check my Luma3DS version

    I just did it and it worked. I had used my Pokemon Y (CIA) with pokemon home. They dont nessasrly link your account they just send a code for you to put in your 3DS. But to be safe double check with pokehex to make sure all your moves are legal

    Can I ask if you use a downloaded save or had "created" pokemon on that save and if you went through the trouble making new TID/SID/PID etc. For them?
    Wanting to do similar but worried about risk of banning.

    They were my saves and I never created a pokemon I would honestly avoid downloaded saves because the trainer ID may be automatically blacklisted this is why I went in the direction of using my own saves

    Just an update not all pokemon cam be transferred to your game they will stay in your bank but you can play them since it will have a stop sign on them please refer to the DEX I had attached a pic as recefecnce
