Will I be able to import from Platinum?

Topic. Also any official importing info would be appreciated, I didn't see it yet. Thank you!

Directly from Platinum?

Nope.

Platinum to Gen V to Gen VI?

Dunno yet.

Basically, the official stance right now is they are "working on it". At least as far as backwards compatibility with the fifth generation.
Like was said in the other post, if the past trend continues, you'd have to transfer the 'mons from Platinum to Black/White/Black 2/White 2 before you will be able to transfer them to X and Y.

I know it could be a pain, but that's how it will likely be. Just as to get 'mons from Ruby/Sapphire into Black/White/Black 2/White 2 you have to go through Diamond/Pearl/Platinum/HeartGold/SoulSilver first.

I realised something just now, if backwards compatibility continues for even a couple more generations, though it may be possible, it would eventually be stupid to chain transfer all the way from Ruby/Sapphire.

I gave up and did the 3DS transfer anyway...

How so?

This seems a little ambiguous a response. Is it because it may mean an eventual remake? Or is there another reason?
