Pal Park and the gen 5 thing were annoying, but at least they had reasons for being how they were (Gamefreak wanted it to be a minigame). Poke Transporter is just flat out lazy programming that feels like a single intern just slapped it together or something.
Though yeah, I'd totally pay $5 for a dummy DS game that can hold at least 30 Pokemon and lets you transfer from gens 3 and 4 without any BS and then upload them to the bank with a not-crap interface. Unfortunately Gamefreak would never do that, admittedly for a few good reasons, but whenever I think of the Emerald-to-X commute I cringe. --- 'It's a widely-known fact that GameFAQs is filled with normal, well-adjusted people who are an accurate representation of society as a whole' - cruelbird
