Purchased Pokémon Gold on my 3DS before going to the Miiverse thing and setting up a Nintendo account id or whatever. Since I purchased Pokémon gold before making the network Id and Nintendo account, if I ever switch to another 3DS, will I not be able to download that game onto the other device?

Learn to be patient.

If the system has an ID now, you shouldn't have a problem.

Where I would be able to see the download list history on the Nintendo shop on my computer? I want to make sure it’s on there

Boot up the eshop, then scroll to the left, one of those options will show your purchase history.

Just did and it says that if I want to check my history of purchases I'd have to go on the 3DS, which is strange because I bought just now Pokemon Silver as well through the site and nothing still shows up on the history download list. Normal?

I meant boot it up on your 3ds, not your browser.

When you connect an NNID to the console, it links all past purchases on that console to the NNID. NNID came out after the system did, so it has to work that way.

Awesome :) Thank you very much for this! So if I were to switch to another 3DS, if I went to my download list history, I'd be able to see the Pokemon Gold game I bought before I made my NNID in the list?

you can't use your NNID on a second 3DS, you'll need to do a system transfer which copies over all your games even if you don't have an NNID yet.
