So, is it possible to catch every single pokemon?

I've been a (fairly casual) fan of Pokemon since Gen 1, having most recently played (and really enjoyed) Black 2.

My question is - Is it possible to catch every pokemon across the entire series and transfer them all onto say, X or Y?

In other words, could I catch a Mewtwo (for example) in Red or Blue, then transfer it along the series from Gen to Gen until it's eventually on X and Y, or did I miss something about how this works?

Sorry if it seems like a pretty silly question, but thanks for your time.

You cannot transfer from Gen 2 to Gen 3.

If there's backwards compatibility between XY and Gen V, then yes, it is possible

If there isn't, then we'll just have to see how many pokemon are in the Kalos region

It's not possible to transfer pokemon from the first two gens. It is possible to have all pokemon, but you'd have to do some trading in order to get the wifi event only pokemon.

Technology gap between gen 2 and 3 makes it impossible. However, you can transfer over if you start from gen 3 and make use of the RGBY remakes for gen 3 and the GSC remakes from gen 4. Or... just start from Black/White or their sequels and make use of trading through wifi.

Thanks for the quick responses for all who answered.

So it's possible if you start from Fire Red / Leaf Green?

So I still have my copy of Fire Red, but I don't have my regular DS on hand (it's in a whole other state ATM), just a 3DS.

Is it possible to emulate gen 3 / 4 and then transfer it to say, a hard copy of Black and White, or am I SOL as far as that goes?
