Is there a way to transfer my Pokemon from R/B/G/Y to X/Y?

Looking through my closet, I found an old box, with all my Gameboy Color and GBA stuff, and I found my old Red and Yellow cartridges. I started to play them, and god, the battery hasn't dried. So, before the battery dies in a matter of months (because I saw somewhere that the lifetime of those cartridges are 15 years), is there a way to get those to my X/Y? I mean, I know I can connect it to Pokemon Stadium, but is there a way to get them to a GBA game where I can transfer them to a DS game, and after that, with Pokebank to X/Y?


Thanks everybody!

Unfortunately, no. Sorry. =/

Your best bet is to play FRLG and transfer those Pokemon.

No, sorry. You can't transfer Gen 1/2 Pokémon over to Gen 3 due to overhauls in the way Pokémon stats are calculated - and because of hardware problems.

Pokemon were non-transferrable from Gen 2 (GBC) to Gen 3 (GBA).

But thats why the remakes exist, Fire Red and Leaf Green are GBA remakes of Kanto, Heart Gold and Soul Silver are DS remakes of Johto. Everything from as early as Ruby and Sapphire can make the trip up to pokemon X/Y. Thats really impressive if you think about it.

This, not to mention all of the GlitchMon in the oriiginal Gen I/II.

I do have FR/LG, but those Pokemon from Red and Yellow were the first Pokemon I ever caught, it has nostalgia value, but well. :/

Wasn't there a way with Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Colosseum?

The earliest games you can possibly transfer Pokemon from are Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, LeafGreen, Colosseum and XD Gale of Darkness (all generation III games). GameBoy(Color) and GameBoy Advance were completely incapable of trading with one another, so everyone who played Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver and Crystal had to leave their Pokemon in the past.

Nope. Same issue: Pokemon from R/B/Y and G/S/C simply have no way of making the journey to the 3rd generation. They're permanently locked to a lesser dimension of video games.

*sigh* It's hard... but you have to say good bye. Move on, my friend. :(

This was why FireRed/LeafGreen and HeartGold/SoulSilver was created: to make sure no Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokemon would be left behind, classic example being the Legendary Dogs, who are only seen in Gen 2 games.

Though, this doesn't exactly solve the Event Pokemon fiasco, like Mew, Celebi, Jirachi and Deoxys =P

To touch up (add on) to all the answers, just so you know... if you're playing 3rd and 4th gen games, you'll still need to transfer those over to 5th gen, if you want to use the Pokemon Bank feature.
