How do you want pokemon transferring to be done in this generation?

No damn minigames, should allow items...don't want another Dream World-esque situation where we'd have to wait for an item to be officially released just to get something like a Light Ball....

Seriously though, Generation V's generational compatibility list has encompassed 3 whole generations one-way only.

3 to 4 via Pal Park. (GBA Slot to DS game, phased ut from DS Lite onwards)
4 to 5 via Pokeshooter... (you need two DSes)
5 to 6 via ? (most likely 2 3DSes or one of each...or from a pricegouge App)

Make matters worse, you couldn't send items from the 4th gen...yep.

B/W/B2/W2 --> Free 3DS Storage app --> X/Y.

Just let us transfer them over without having to play some stupid game. The Pal Park in 4th Gen was kinda fun but the 5th Gen flinging mini-game was annoying as hell and completely unnecessary.
Yeah, that's a problem games had back then. You actually had to get good at them. -Mctias

Boxes at a time. no mini games. no bs.

they should know that by now that there are no more older Pokemon in the new games and that they should make it convenient for us to do mass transfer of Pokemon. items included. i dont understand why they restricted items 4th gen to 5th. there wasnt possibly anything that could have caused anything to go wrong since you cant give a Pokemon Key Items and even then Special Pokeballs from Kurt could just be turned into normal Pokeballs during the transfer.
The end is nigh! *continues playing game*

I'd like to be able to have backwards compatibility, assuming the 5th gen pokemon transferred over has no 6th gen-introduced moves

You transfer an entire box from Gen V all the way to a box in Gen IV. When transferring, you can see the boxes from both games and you can just drag entire groups from the previous game to X/Y.

3DS app. 5th gen is compatible with 3DS apps so it could work.

Just let me throw all my Pokemon in the app and then transfer them all over to the new game. No more bull crap and restrictions. There are far to many Pokemon to do all that.


Seriously, this needs to be a thing. If we could just make the Dream World accessible via 3DS app too that would make a perfect two-for-one deal in the e-shop.
