How are 3ds save files kept?

Recommended Posts

I just started using Citra. My Pokemon Ultra Sun file is called "main" and it has no file extension. It is located here:

C:\Users\Wes\AppData\Roaming\Citra\sdmc\Nintendo 3DS\00000000000000000000000000000000\00000000000000000000000000000000\title\00040000\001b5000\data\00000001

Eventually, I want to get a legit copy of the game. Will I be able to move the save file to a cartridge (using the appropriate hardware)?

I was able to do this with DS games, by changing the file extension. (The R4 card uses a different file extension than the cartridge, so I have to change that first).


Has anyone moved Pokemon saves to and from a legit cart on the 3DS versions? I want to be able to use save file editors, and the emulator's tools like cheats and save states. But what hurdles should I expect to deal with if I want to put the save file on an actual cartridge down the road?


(Sorry that was so confusing and rambly)

So, I managed to figure it out for the most part. Only question now is whether its easy to put them on a cartridge

I even used the Pokemon Save Editor to merge my three starters into one save file, and...

Their IVs suck
