Possibly broken mechanic in Pokemon bank?

you realize that this is exactly what wonderbank was meant to be used for?

restart game, keep all pokemon. just like back in gold silver using pokemon stadium.
or ruby/saph using that game cube box thing

I remember my friend proposed doing this is red/blue in elementary school. I'm not sure if you're taking this into account, but you have to save before you trade stuff, and i'm sure before using the pokebank, so this would work as long as you don't mind starting your game over from scratch at the very end. It'd be much easier to go shiny hunting and trade those for legendaries

I hope it's liek that because then I can replay the game if I so choose and keep my Pokemon.

The only problem with storing all your Pokemon and starting over is that you cannot store items as well, so you lose event-only Mega Stones or items you may have obtained from the opposite version and such. Otherwise, yeah, it works.

You could do it with starters too, only this isn't 1997 and it's easier to get starters now than it used to be.

You can do that without pokebank
Find a friend and dump your copies of legendary to him restarting over and over. Until you have enough. Then trade them back.

I have been doing this since gen 3, except I always used 2 systems and 2 games to trade to and from. I assure tou I have way more than 100 legendary pokemon, and I only kept the ones with nature that are not 100% useless, I realeased those a while back.
