Recently I picked up soul silver and white 1 and 2. Before this I haven't played a Pokemon game since the original r/b/y series.

I am wondering how this will work because the previous games are DS and the new one is 3ds. Although I didn't "catch them all" in white 2 yet I am thinking about trading my white games in to take money off of Pokemon x/y since I cannot think of a way our old Pokemon can be transferred to the new generation. Does anyone know or can think of a way it can?

They'll probably sell us an app.

Dragon Quest Monsters already has an app to transfer data. If Square-Enix, who isn't especially tight with Nintendo, can figure it out, then GameFreak definitely can.

If there's a digital download version, in theory it could transfer directly from a DS card.

why an app? is it that hard to see a second "download play" minigame?

Wish it didn't have to be so, but it will probably be post game to boot.

I hope we start anew so hackers/cheating trolls can't transfer their Pokegened Pokemon to X and Y.

Kinda.. yeah.

Let's say you're a Pokemon species and evolution collector . You are fond of collecting different trainer IDs... yadayada...

The current Pokedex no is 649. Can you imagine transfering that many Pokemon with the current set up? The transfer lab only lets you transfer 6 Pokemon at a time. You can't even have hold items or HMs on them.
To top it off you need 2 DS systems.
The last time I transfered over 500 Pokemon, took me TWO days!
