I got a physical copy of Y, but it says I need a SD card to play?

It says something like "the SD card couldn't be recognized, please end the game and start again" but why do I even need one? This happened on two different 3DSes and two different copies of the game, and I have no idea why.

PM me so I can add you as well!

So you can save the game?

"I could care less" means you care right now.
The proper phrase is "I couldn't care less."

Well is there an SD card in the SD card slot? Or is it full or something? The games aren't like the DS carts, they need external memory due to the fact that there's more information on the cart itself.

I got this used. Doesn't everything save to the game itself if it's a physical copy?

It doesn't even boot. I pick the game from the main 3DS menu and that shows up.

That's f***ing stupid. This isn't my first 3DS game and I've never even heard of anything like this before. Is this true?

All the 3DS games I've used have required external memory. I'm not sure of any that don't.
