Pokebank F.A.Q.

#141DrReanimatorPosted 4/16/2014 2:21:31 PMmessage detail
Not sure if this is the appropriate section to post in, so apologies if not. But it is in regards to the bank in some way, so here I am.

So, long story short, in order to complete my Pokedex on X and Y, I've been using the bank to transfer all of my Pokemon from Black/White 2. When my girlfriend heard I could also transfer Pokemon from older games, she went out and surprised me with a copy of Heart Gold so that I could get a Ho-Oh and Lugia as well for my Y version. It was a used copy, so of course I did what we all do and checked the previous owner's game first to see how far along they had been and lo and behold.. They had plenty of legendaries, from all the birds, to the dog trio, Shaymin, Manaphy, so on and so fourth.

I was able to transfer all of them with no problem to my White 2, and from there the majority of them transferred without incident to my Y. However, the Shaymin, Manaphy, Phione, and Mew couldn't be transferred. I had already deleted all of their HM moves before attempting to move them, so after looking through some topics, I assume it was because the previous owner hacked the system to get them? And, if so, is there some other way I can get them from White 2 to my Y game?

Nope, they're likely hacked. Outside of editing them to look legal, there's no way.

I figured as much. But how do you edit them to look legal?
I don't do competitive battling or anything, so it's not like I'm just trying to get an OP team. I was just psyched to get a Mew, haha.

I can barely contain my indifference.

To edit them you'd need an action replay or other device. Might be easier to just try and get one off the trade boards or use a fake GTS site on your Gen5 games.

Wait a celebi event? When? What?

When Pokebank first came out you could get a free celebi. Also, there was one years back in japan. it unlocked an extra "mission" in soul silver/heart gold.

I love KH BBS, it's the reason I got a PSP and I don't regret it.

Too bad you can't go as far back as Platinum, I caught almost 500 pokes on that game.

Awesome topic though

why can't you just transfer them from platinum to white/black 1/2 and then put them in the bank from there?

I have Pokemon Y and X, both physical not digital. If I delete my X saved data for example, will affect or delete my Y saved data too? Or I need to move both to Pokebank first?

Deleting data on one cartridge will not have any affect with the other. Just be sure to put any pokemon you want to keep into Pokebank before restarting that cartridge.
