Requirement: a Japanese 3DS, a Japanese Pokemon X/Y/OR/AS cartridge, and the Cyber Save Editor 1 or 2.

  3. Change any byte, and hit apply.

  5. At this point, open PKHeX and file->open the “main” file located in /users/{USERNAME}/appdata/Local/Temp/3DSSE/root/.
  6. Make any changes you want to your save in PKHeX.
  7. Go to the “SAV” tab in PKHeX and hit “Export save” — save the edited file over the “main” file you opened. (Replace the old main with the edited one.)

3DS Cyber Save Editor Review

cyber-save-editor-box-150x150The 3DS Cyber Save Editor comes with a decent set and everything you might expect from it. Basically, you got the save editor installation CD, as well as the game card reader. The editor is available for 3DS and 3DS LL. The first version did not have the 3DS LL support though, hence the necessity to upgrade. Installing the software is pretty simple and intuitive, even if you are not a geek. Furthermore, you got a setup guide, which explains the entire process step by step. It can be the first time you use such apparently sophisticated systems, yet you will have no problems at all.

The USB cable for connectivity is also included, not to mention the support card, which is basically a warranty. Not sure how to edit the save data? You do not have to be an expert, but just establish a simple connection between the 3DS game card and the card reader. The card reader is included in the package. You can use the 3DS Save Editor by connecting to a computer with the USB cable. From that point on, the entire procedure is user friendly and intuitive.


The Save Editor requires specific operating systems for a top-notch operation. The computer can run any version of Windows and requires an Internet connection. Forget about license registrations and other time consuming procedures. Instead, use this editor on multiple computers and never worry about your games. It comes with two modes too – the simple mode and the advanced mode. It might be a good idea to start with the simple mode, even if you have actually seen the editor in action and you are familiar with its features. You do not want to ruin your saves due to the lack of experience. The editor can be purchased on Amazon or Play-Asia.
