Trade between 3DS and Citra?

Okay, I’ve got a question.
Could you, in theory, trade between a Pokemon game on a 3DS family member and a Pokemon game running on Citra?
I know you can’t do it via online(no shared servers and all), but could you do it as if you were trading between 3DS’s that are in the same room?
I apologise if I’m asking a question that’s already been asked to death, but I have yet to see an answer to this specifically.
Thank you!

Unfortunately Citra cannot communicate with a 3DS. What you can do is having 2x 3DSes to do the local trading then dump the save and copy it over to Citra. Or the one you want to trade with in real life also use Citra and use the Citra rooms :stuck_out_tongue:

Shame that’s the case. Thank you anyways!

You can. You need to hack your 3DS and you need some special hardware, but I do not remember what you need. Then use pkhex to trade pokemon. If you do not have a hacked 3DS, this will not work.
