Never mind guys and gals, I decided to not purchase the AR because of the crappy pkmn cheats in it, and I will not use any codes from un-official websites. Thank you so much though! You guys responded fast and to-the-point! I will definitely be sticking around this Board!
I found it sneaky the way the package was advertised to work with 3DS. Some less informed people might think that AR can be used with 3DS games when it won't work with 3DS game. :P
Oh well. I still have my old "pre-3DS" AR and the USB cable so I could update from my computer if I needed to. Judging by the dust buildup on my AR, I probably haven't used it for a while as I play mainly DLC games and 3DS carts so AR won't be of any help.
