Trying to build a complete Pokedex before this comes out...

As far as transferring from GBA games is it just the starters that aren't available in the other versions?

I have done this and if memory serves, you are correct. Although GTS is quicker.

Technically, as of Black 2 and White 2, you can get every non-event Pokemon without a GBA game.

But the starters require full playthroughs of Heart Gold/Soul Silver, including all the Kanto gyms and Red, for one first-gen and one third-gen starter, meaning three complete runs of the game. Something of a hassle!

I have a 3DS and DS Lite. I could in theory just keep a file in one game and trade from the other as needed.
