This poll is now closed.
If you can, list what games you've transferred from and if you'll be transferring in 6th Gen.

Before MMOs, Pokemon made me spend the most...

Always had multiple games (GB->GBC-GBA* then DS->Lite->i, now 3DS) I got all versions anyway plus I used pokecheck/pokesav/pokegen later on. *I had a 4 way gba link cable with one port that worked with GBC games so I traded in GSC that way eventually.

Back when Heart Gold came out, I would use the GTS to painstakingly transfer some of my Diamond Pokemon.

my little sister plays Pokemon so if i get this version my sister gets the other version and she has her own DS/3DS. so, we both benefit because then we trade version exclusives to each other's files and starters.
