Trading pokemon from Gen 3 to Gen 6

#1evoxpiscesPosted 9/25/2013 12:35:23 PM
So in preparation for X & Y I want to move all of my pokemon from Emerald, FireRed, Platinum, HeartGold, White, and White2 into one game so I can upload them to the bank when X & Y come out. Problem is, I have no friends with pokemon so I'm working alone. I never traded with myself so I'm a little unsure how to start doing this.

My guess is Gen 3 -> Gen 4 by putting GBA into DS lite and uploading from there.
Gen 4 -> Gen 5 with 2 DS's and trade them over.
Gen 5 -> Upload to bank when it's available.

Am I correct in assuming this? Or is there an easier way?

That's pretty much it, yeah (Gen.IV -> Gen.V can also be done with both, a DS and a 3DS).
No, there's no easier way, so...good luck with that.

You can only transfer 6 pokemon from each gen III game cartridge per day

That's what needs to be done.

Gen 3 -> Gen 4 needs a DS or DS Lite.
Gen 4->Gen 5 needs 2 DSes of any sort.
Gen 5 -> Bank needs a 3DS and an internet connection.

Thats easily bypassed by messing with the DS clock.

Ruby/Sapphire remakes will be part of 6th gen on 3DS. If not, I'll close my account.

That's alright. Its' not like I'm transferring 100s of pokemon. Mostly the starters, legendaries, and other favorites.

Thanks for the help!
