Alright, so I am selling my old 3DS in order to get the Pikachu 3DS next week...how should I transfer my Mii and saves and whatnot/do the games save on the cartridge? I know...I know newbie questions.

Anyway, I don't have any downloaded games or anything. Just my profile/saves.

What's the best way to get my data off before I sell it in which I could transfer to a 3DS XL later?

Step one, acquire the new 3DS, step two transfer your data.

If that doesn't work, consult Nintendo's website.

I feel bad for bumping...but I am selling in like..an hour D: any way I can keep my saves? The only ones that matter really are Fire Emblem: A and Pokemon White 2. Do 3DS games save on the cart?

Yes, but any DLC/Streetpass info is stored on the account, I THINK.
Someone help this dude out.

Yeah, game saves are saved on the cartridges, downloads, Miis, and streetpass data is linked to the system
