Is it possible to take a screenshot of this background scene when battling a member of Ultra Recon Squad? Like without the member in front and just the bg only? If so, can I ask a help on taking a screenshot of it and exporting both PNGs, the one that shows background only and the other one like the photo below (any member as long as it's Ultra Squad haha)
Thank you.

Maybe you could, like, dump the game and use the 3DS tools on a computer to dump the background.

Or is this not needed anymore for you?

Little update:
Looks like the front battle image is a model

I was hoping that the background loads before the model, and sadly I was wrong.
(After all, if the background loaded first, I can take a screenshot like below)

@Jovie here you go!
Once they transit from the model to the image, the background loads first :)

How did you manage to do this?

On Citra!
1. View > Debugging > Pica Breakpoints
2. View > Debugging > Create Pica Surface Viewer
3. Play the game until the point you want to grab relevant textures/images
4. Under Pica Breakpoints window (visible in screenshots), check on either Incoming Primitive Batch or Finished Primitive Batch. [This will pause the game]
5. Clicking on Resume will advance the game, loading texture by texture.
Changing the selection of the dropdown box Source under Pica Surface Viewer will change what is loaded in the Surface Viewer.

From my experience, Color Buffer shows you the screen rendering, and Texture 0 is the main texture of the items loaded.
For example:

You can see that it's trying to load the wormhole in Color Buffer.
Capture1.PNG

when we go to Texture 0 (haven't advanced yet; same frame), we see the color scheme of the wormhole!
Capture2.PNG

Now, we advance a few frames to see the space-time fabric wormhole texture
