Pokémon X running on the Citra 3DS emulator! Download the emulator here:
You need a save file to get this game to work (this save file works with both Pokemon X and Pokemon Y). In this video, I used two different ones, so I’ll link them both.
1ST SAVE FILE: This is right when the game first starts (i.e. before a starter Pokemon is chosen).
2ND SAVE FILE: This is a little bit into the game with Fennekin as the chosen starter.
Unzip the save file to the following folder structure: CitraInstallFolderusersdmcNintendo 3DS 0000000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000000000title 0055d00
Citra is currently available for Windows, Linux, and Mac (OS X). All my Citra videos are running on Windows 10 64-bit. Also, all of my Citra videos show the games running in real time–no edited speedups or anything like that.
Do you want to play 3DS games on Citra yourself? Then watch my Citra tutorial video to see how to download and setup the emulator:

Notes about Citra: At this point in its development, Citra is still a very early and experimental emulator. Quite a few games run fairly well now in large part thanks to the recent implementation of the CPU JIT compiler, but there are a lot of graphical and audio issues. Basically, don’t expect it to run games perfectly.
To prevent Citra from running above 60 FPS, enable V-Sync under Emulation – Configure – Graphics within Citra.
My PC specs: i7-4770 CPU, 8GB DDR3 RAM, NVIDIA GTX 970 GPU
