Would anyone want a universal trainer ID?

Basically, you register an account with Nintendo and receive a trainer ID (and secret ID and pick a name etc) that is unique to you. When starting a new game you have the option to connect the file to your account and use your universal ID. This way you could keep your ID the same on all games so all of your pokemon will recognize you as the original trainer.

Obviously it may need some level restrictions on what pokemon can be transferred to your game before you have all the badges, but the easiest restriction is that you can only transfer pokemon up to the level your badges allow (1st Badge up to Lv20) etc.

Any thoughts?

I'd be down for this if it worked across all games.

You should have made this a poll. But I would say yes for me.

Neither for or against it. Its an interesting idea though. Just feel like there are several other things I would prefer to see addressed before something like this.

If they did do something like this link it with the Global link, and let it keep track of your accomplishments across games.

I don't think I can make polls yet (unless I am missing something), how do you get this option?

I like this. Its the kind of modern idea that would help make the franchise feel like one cohesive world, rather than individual games.

Pokemon Bank is another example of this sort of thing (which fits perfectly with your idea, too.)

This would be good, so you could keep track of your badges across all regions, regional dex completion, contests won, even records etc.

All this could be displayed on a personal profile page, that you can make public if you wish.

Yeah, this is what the series needs. Pokemon bank could be part of the same system, as that will be the main way of transferring pokemon from now on.
