Orange Islands SQSA Thread

There were quite a few. But what about the save states? I don´t wanna lose my mons! And I tried to go to the nintendo e-shop, but it still showed the price. :-(
 
NEED HELP! I AM DESPERATE!

My old New 3ds broke. So today I bought new. I have most of my games (including my pokemon) on sd card. So I took my old SD card with games, popped it into the new system and started. It asked me for a few questions (time, date,...). When I was done, there was no game on home screen. All my games gone! So I put the sd card out and into pc. There I copied the Nintendo 3ds folder. Next I tried to copy it back. Put the card back into the console, nothing.
I did an SD card swap before and it worked fine (tough it was on the same system, just changed the sd card for one with more space). I still had that old folder, so I copied it instead the current one. Again, didn´t work. So I wanted to copy the current one back. It told me I don´t have enough space on my SD card. What??? I then deleted the New 3ds folder from SD card and tried again. And again, it said that I don´t have space! Are all my games lost? I had most of my events there. Is there any way I can rescue those games?
For clarification, I have two "Nintendo 3ds" folders in my pc. One is the old one when I changed the sd card for new one. It is the one that is on my sd card now.
The second one is from the sd card just after the change of consoles. When I try to put in on sd card, it says I don´t have enough space.
Yeah, I tried that before and it didn't work. I ended up transferring the data of my old 3DS to my New 3DS XL after buying a larger micro SD card for it. I'd recommend doing that if you can boot up your old New 3DS and get to the system settings.

Otherwise you may very well be out of luck.
Games you bought can be redownloaded freely as far as I know. Was there that many games on the cart?
Only if it recognizes your Nintendo Network ID, since that's what keeps track of your purchase history. (so the eshop knows you bought the titles before and thus won't charge you again)

Siria You could try calling Nintendo customer support. Is it possible for them to unlink your NNID from the old 3DS so you can link it to your new 3DS?

My old 3ds is completely busted, so I can´t do System Transfer. I managed to mail to nintendo support of my country, and they replied that it is possible for them to unlink my old system and link my sd card to this new console. I send them needed data (the system ID, my NNID, birth date and at least two downloaded and activated games) and asked about the save files of the games, and we´ll see if it´s possible to restore them. At worst, I will be able to redownload the games for free.

Oh, and about that space problem I mentioned earlier, how I can´t copy my Nintendo 3ds file from comp anymore? Funny story that, I found out that I accidentaly copied it before to the DCIM folder. Well, no wonder there was no space! Well, anyhow I hope the problem will be solved soon.
 
Not sure if this is the place to post this, but if I were to do a Let’s Play thread based on interaction with other forum members, would anybody be interested in reading it? It would be a silly romp through a main series game.

Forum members could choose my player name, team, nicknames, rival name, what routes I could sidetrack to, if I should skip trainers or not, do musicals/contests, etc.

Not quite a “simple” question, but I wanted to gauge interest before I go and create a thread that might be locked. Also, it wouldn’t be super screenshot-based as I wouldn’t be emulating whatever game I choose.

I remember I have hosted such rooms on PS, we called them guided playthroughs (though ours were a little bit more linear, we voted on everyone's stuff when the time came, as opposed to in the beginning). Those were really fun but may be too reliant on live polls and active userbase (we had problems gathering users to be active) so if you are gonna make your decisions based on poll results, you might need a live chat like a Discord server (PS groupchats no longer support polls due to inexistance of staff ranks in there) if you go more linear with decisions, since there are a lot of decisions for game cartridges. In order to answer your question, though, I'd be definitely interested in being involved, if not even participate at some point with my own game, but I think it's best to see if Mods approve of such let's play threads here on first place.

If you are gonna be more restrictive in terms of what decisions you are gonna give to your users or you are all gonna make it up in one time (e.g. in the same time we pick your team, rival's name and etc.), then hosting it on a Smogon thread perhaps won't be a bad idea

In the event this is approved or you decide to use a live chat and be independant from Smogon and its forums, you are free to DM me and ask me how we ran things if you are interested and want to take some ideas for your own system.
 
I can get Discord on my phone if need be. That might be better if we go the live route. I’m on vacation atm so live Discord might not be the best idea right now. I think Black 2 would be the best candidate for a Let’s Play like this. Why?
-Lots or different routes near areas (Nimbassa/Desert Resort/Route 16/5, Castelia side areas, Relic Passage, Mistralton Cave, Strange House, Undella routes)
-Musicals and Pokestar Studios. Dropped Item sidequest
-LOADS of stuff postgame if I do it
-Challenge Mode or Normal mode
-Lots of Pokemon variety
-Balanced difficulty

Again, open to other games too.

I think the thread route would be practical, with everything decided at the beginning That way I don’t have to duck in and out of Discord. If we go the Discord route it would probably have to be kinda scheduled which is hard to do with different schedules/time zones and such. It’s possible but it would be tricky.
 
So I just decided to look through my old soul silver save and I apparently have an event celebi that I never picked up. I want to send it up to gen 7 as a bully set (iv's will be set to 31 after a gold bottle cap) I just got a calm one with hp ice. Should I keep it or keep resetting for one that's bold and has hp ice?
Edit. Bulky

I'm not sure I follow. Do you mean an offensive set? If you mean Nasty Plot, you probably want a Timid nature.

For what it's worth, Celebi doesn't really use HP Ice in competitive -- Fire gets better coverage, and even then, it often doesn't need it.
I laddered on for about 3 hours with both bold and calm celebi and I like calm more because it lives special attacks like hydregon dark pusle while still tanking non z moves and super effective hits
 
I read online about a way to transfer Mews obtained with the Mew glitch to SM (source). I've got a few questions:

1. Will it work for USUM?
2. Will Mew have the 3 perfect IVs all VC transfer mons have?
3. Can I get Mewnium Z with such a Mew?
