    I'm wondering if it is possible to use an original R4 (currently owned) or any other flashcard as an Action Replay for a retail game. If anyone knows, can you please reply with any details (preferably with sources/links)?

    Specifically I'm interested in AR-ing the key items to catch Darkrai, Shaymin and Arceus on a retail Pearl. Or are there other ways of initiating the battle with the above three pokemon without actually having the key items?

    Places I've checked:
    1) Tweaking/ glitching to get to Darkrai and Shaymin. But ideally, I'd like to find a way to Arceus as well.

    2) I saw the topic about transferring pkm files to and from pokemon games. But it does't actually allow me to start the battle, unless theres also a way of transferring key items.

    PS. I have the original DS (the huge brick one) if it matters.

    Use eepinator to transfer your game's save file to your flashcard.

    Play the game on your flashcard with this save file, and cheats.

    Use eepinator to transfer the save back to your game card.

    I'll throw in +1 for NitroHax, it works with AR codes on most/all flashcards with most/all games. Obviously, won't work on a DSi or newer, which is a non-issue for you.

    I've used it on an iTouchDS RTS with Pokemon Pearl on a DS Lite before.

    i was going to try Pokemon Black with nitrohax 0.92, but nitrohax corrupted my memcard and created a file that is 16 bytes in size before i even ran it.
    glad that i backed it up just yesterday

    after formating my memcard i got nitrohax to load but it freezes with pokemon black
