Pokémon Sun and Moon cheats: How to install SUMOHax

Taking advantage of these cheats will require a bit of hacking on your Nintendo 3DS. If you're not comfortable doing that you're out of luck, but if you don't mind getting your hands dirty, there are plenty of guides out there to help walk you through the process.

It's also important to note that these cheats will only work on the New 3DS. Unfortunately, the original 3DS and the 2DS systems can't handle SUMOHax. So if you're rocking an older model, you're out of luck too.

Assuming you meet the hardware qualifications, the first thing you'll need to do is install BootNTR selector, which allows you to take advantage of various 3DS cheats. Here's a guide for installing BootNTR from Reddit.

Next, download SUMOHax and extract Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon to the plugin folder on your 3DS. Then you'll need to launch BootNTR, which should send you back to the 3DS home menu. Finally, launch the game and tap the A button repeatedly to make sure it doesn't freeze while loading all the extra data.

You can also change which button pulls up the menu by pressing "Start" while the cheat menu is up. Finally, you can control the speed that each Pokémon Sun and Moon cheat is executed by pressing "Select" from inside the menu.
