I have an old DS around (original one) and want to get an action replay and am not sure if it will work with the 3DS. I want to be able to get Arceus and Darkrai in Pokemon Platnium and want to make sure I get the right Action Reply since ther are multiple.

Is there a specific one that would work for the later Pokemon games like platnium and white 2?

The current ones at gamestop are compatible with the 3DS, but it's only for DS games. Why don't you just pokegen your legendaries? You're already willing to hack for them.

Does a DSi game work on a DS?

DSi action replay's do work on the 3DS, however the most recent hardware update is needed for it to be compatible, all you need is the software and the usb cable to connect it to your computer and the drivers will automaticly be updated.

Edit: It's possible a future 3DS patch could stop it from being compatible even with the latest update, I don't think they bother to create new updates for the action replay anymore so if that happens it will never be compatible again.

Keep in mind that PokeTransfer checks to make sure the Pokemon is legitimate before bringing it over to XY...

Not saying that's what you plan to do, but just so you know, down the road.
