I like to play on my XL at home and the regular 3DS when I'm out

So could I just move the save data back and forth between systems? Or will it only work on the system on which it was created?

i don't know whether you're talking about digital or cart but data saves to the cart. if you're talking about digital, unless you have the same game on both systems, you need to either transfer it or rebuy it on the other system. digital games are locked to the system they were bought on. and there are no separate save files for games, the saves are tied to the same file for the game itself.
