If bw, b2w2 and previous gens aren't transferrable to x,y then.....

I'll stop playing until x, y and i'll throw all gen 3-5 carts to burn them. All events happening now and upcoming (presumably for m16) will be extinguished.

People stop using dream radar and stop buying b2w2 and old games. what do you think???

g3 wasn't compatible with g2 and 1 was remember g1 you can have your ev > 510 and was passed to g2. g3 was to stop this i guess.

No.

The reason Gen 3 was incompatible with Gen 2 was the creation of Abilities.


Unless, Game Freak/Nintendo add a new mechanic similar or has a huge impact [magnitude wise] as abilities/etc. then I doubt we won't be able to trade to them.

It was because it jumped from GB to GBA, which had no compatibility with each other.
But I agree. It won't happen.

They could have easily fixed that.


Also you could trade between the GBA versions with DS versions. Not the prime excuse for why it wasn't possible.

This was the reason I skipped gen 3 and played it later.

It wasn't even that. It was the massive hardware difference between GB and GBA. They literally could not have made it backwards compatible even if the GBA games were carbon copies of gen 2.

They could have probably, but they didn't. :P
And that's because they built in a GBA player in the DS, avoiding the previous mistake they made.

The reason why you couldn't trade between gen II and III was because of ,well lack of communication between the GBA and the GB, but also because that's when they revamped the Iv/Ev systems. (At least I think it was when that happened.
