Transfer pokemons from Gen 6 to Gen 5?

#1ManTigerPosted 11/28/2013 4:51:31 PM
Once the PokeTransfer and PokeBank comes out, can you transfer pokemons from generation 6 to generation 5? Please let me know.
Thanks.

Pretty sure that's a no, on account of battle system changes, moveset and type tweaks, etc.

I think it's always been a oneway trip, no?

Sorry I'm not sure what it's really called but it's that other one for transferring pokemons.
Do you happen to know if you can transfer pokemons from gen 6 to gen 5 via PokeBank?

I asked people this question as well but it couldn't get a solid answer either.
Maybe it hasn't been revealed yet.

Gen I and II, but that's it.

What they are talking about is actually called the Poke Transporter, it is an optional component of Pokemon Bank supposedly requiring a seperate download that allows you to transfer Pokemon from Black/White/Black 2/White 2 into X and Y through the Bank (you still have to use the Bank to withdraw, transporter only uploads).

The Poke Transporter is one way like all prior transfer functions.
'PokeTransfer' was the name of the transfer function in Black/White/Black 2/White 2.

Can you transfer from gen 6 to gen 5 using PokeBank?

Pokebank is just the storage site where you can store up to 3000 Pokemon in the "Cloud".
It's apparently going to be compatible with future games.

Poketransfer is a seperate app that lets you transfer Pokemon from Black/White or Black 2/White 2 to X/Y.

There has never been a time you could transfer Pokemon backwards.

If you transferred them to another game it was a one way trip, and it only went forward.

For example transferring from Pearl to Black needed 2 DS & a copy of both games.
It asked you "are you sure" a couple times, and explicitly said that you can't transfer back.

No. Like I said it's one way, like all past transfer methods. So it will only transfer from 5 to 6.
