Transferring between generations

#1digiblasterPosted 1/14/2013 7:15:12 AM
With the start of Gen VI, I've decided I want to try and increase the depth of my collection. The problem is that I don't have many games (not any longer at least). I've got White/White 2, but asides from that I only have Ruby and Emerald. I sold my copies of Diamond and Platinum, and never got round to getting HG/SS (though I really wanted to).

What I'm concerned about is being able to move Pokemon from Ruby and Emerald to White/White 2, in order to get them to the next generation. Will I need an extra game to do so? What is the (ideally quickest) route to move Pokemon from Gen III to Gen V?

You will need another game to do so, yes. Any of the 4th gen games will work, but it's probably easiest with HGSS, since you don't have the 6 per day limit that DPPt had.

I'd go with Platinum, its easily the best out of the Sinnoh games.

I suppose I'd get the additional Pokemon available from HG/SS too. I might try and pick up a copy of Fire Red too, since I can't find my old one.

I'll be pretty annoyed if it turns out that you can't transfer between Gen V and Gen VI, unlikely as that is.

Will we be able to transfer from white to x/y? Or only white 2?

And I completely forgot that D/P/Pt had a load of new Pokemon too. Well then.
