I skipped gen5. I never bought black/white or black/white2. Now if owning one of these is a necessary means to achieving my goals, then so be it. I will buy it. I did conduct some simple google research on this, and it says i need to trade the pokemon that I want to eventually make it to Y, to B/W and from there, B/W can interact with the pokemon bank app from my 3DS. Now heres the issue, I have one regular DS, (old fat model circa 2004) and one 3DS. Can I perform a trade between the two differing systems? and If not can i perform a trade using 2 3DS's? My friend has a 3DS i can probably borrow for this if the latter option is possible. I guess the worst case scenario is that I find a cheap used DS somewhere, but it seems like more trouble for this poke-casual, than it may be worth. I just feel very strongly about the team that I used in HG and I think it would be great to get em up to the current gen.

You need B/W or B2/W2 and yes you can trade between different system types

To transfer to B/W, you need to have beaten the E4 to access the place you can do the transfer

You can make the transfer using a 3DS as long as you have a standard DS/DS Lite/DSi, but not two 3DS systems.

And yes, you'll need a Gen 5 game, as it's been said.

I know for a fact you can trade between gens 4, 5 and 6 using two 3DSs, as Ive tried this myself.
I SUSPECT you can accomplish this as well with a regular DS and a 3DS, but as I havent tried it, I cannot say for certain. I'll let someone else answer that part of the question.

yes, it doesnt matter what ds you use for the xfer from gen 4 to 5 as long both work. also no hms. though those that get whirlpool need to be taught it in hs/ss and then traded to d/p/pt to xfer to b/w like latias for example.

You mean to transfer from HS/SS to BW, you need to have beaten the elite 4 in HG/SS right?

No you need to beat E4 in B/W - there's a facility you can access in B/W post game to transfer your pokes from older games into B/W. You can then use Poke Transporter to bring them to Gen 6

No, you need to beat BW/ BW2. You can transfer from gen 4 without getting a badge.
