I was wondering about Pal Park... If it was in D/P/P/HG/SS then it has to be in B/W. If it is, what new features should they add, and what should features of Pal Park should they get rid of? I was wondering about this, but I want to know what everyone else thinks. Does anyone have an idea about this? I think that Pokémon that evolve when traded that were migrated from a GBA game should evolve when you put them on your team. (I hope this sentence makes sense)

Pokestick, good times.

I don't think they'll have Pal park. I just think they'll have the ability to trade with DPPtHGSS.

Never before have there been a possibility to trade between two generations with one between them. It'd be too easy if they did that.

...Besides, I never liked pal Park anyways >_>"

I think they'll probably just have another Time Machine like in GSC. After all the Pal Park only worked because there was an extra slot in the DS, seeing as it will basically be like normal trading, they may as well use the same mechanic as Gen I - Gen II trades.

I highly doubt the Pal Park might make a return for the fifth generation. It seems unlikely for it to continue with more of the hand held DS systems containing no GBA slot. To increase sales of these, and for the future 3DS, I figure they may leave it out this time. Even if it were to make a return though, I wouldn't like it to evolve those that are only able to be evolved through trading. There are some players who prefer their Pokémon to not evolve to certain stages, so this would only break that for them.

Like Johto though, I think they'll establish a new mechanic such as the Time Capsule. Compatibility between DPPt, HG/SS and B/W is already confirmed considering the event Legendary Beasts are needed to unlock the Zoroark encounter in-game. So, it's possible a new trading system will be introduced to allow this compatibility. Such as how trading was done between RBY and GSC.

They could have an ability to trade with GBA games. That might work as a replacement for Pal Park.

They could include both features.

- A Pal Park for those who haven't purchased D/P/P
- And a Time Machine.

Remember, they have to cater for everybody.

Yeah, but if that was possible, they wouldn't need Pal Park in the first place, would they?

As much as I'd like Pal Park to be in gen V, I highly doubt it will be. After all, the newest DS systems don't have a GBA slot.

I'd say Pal Park won't return. But I don't know that two way trading like with the time machine will either. I mean, when they did that, it seriously restricted the additions they ccould do. If they made that happen, they wouldn't be able to add extra mechanics or new ribbons.

So I'd say migration (for Gen IV Pokemon this time) will return, just not in the form of Pal Park. Maybe allow you to select individual Pokemon to be imported.

It's still in the DS right? I think it still has the ability to return.

It might return, but... I'm starting to think we don't need to talk about Pal Park anymore. I don't mind if my thread gets closed now, so a mod can come in and close it.

Agreed, now that they have HG/SS you could practically get all of the pokemon that are around today without much hassle. This is more than likely one of the reasons why the GBA slot was removed from the DSi and DSi XL. I don't expect the 3DS to have one either.

Pal Park was annoying and IMO doesn't need to come back. More than likely we'll see an RSE remake in gen 5 so that will make all of the pokemon created so far+ gen 5 ones obtainable.

This. Though it doesn't need to come back, there's a possibility it will come back because of that reason. Also, Pal Park was in HGSS, so why now BW?

I honestly think that there won't even be trading with 4th-gen. The only reason Pal Park worked was because you couldn't trade them back to the GBA to take advantage of the physical-special split, move tutors, etc.

With new move tutors, new movesets, and likely new abilities for existing mons, I think trading with 4th-gen would be too much to implement without breaking 4th-gen. This would also mean no Pal Park.

Besides, 4th-gen has no data for Isshu. I haven't tried importing any from Colo or XD and then Pal Parking, but I heard there's no Orre data either.

I don't think there'll be a Pal Park, what with the newest DS models having no DS slot, but if there's compatibility with Gen IV, and Gen IV has Pal Park, there'd be no need for a direct link between V and III, would there? :D

I doubt that Pokemon Black And White will have Pal Park do to the fact Its 5 gen pokemon and that 4 Gen Pal Park was just OLD Still idk if they will XD

I hope they do that.
That'll be really cool, both time machine, and Pal Park :3
Well I guess we gotta find out :D

the black and white versions should come with a DSi channel download. (kinda like the Mario kart channel on the wii) this channel will allow you to deposit Pokemon from other games like D/P/P and SS/HG onto it. then when you plug B/W back in you should be able to access it via a pal park!

Yes.

This would help people who only have one DS and thus could not trade between games without the help of a friend.

I'd think they would start advertising the dsi with B/W now. We had a chance to migrate from gba world, and since my emerald and leaf green are now dry i dont find any bonus from them :)

IF THEY DON'T INCLUDE PAL PARK I WILL GO TO THEM (Nintendo) AND SHOW THEM MY FALCAWN PAUNCH!!!

I haven't tried importing any from Colo or XD and then Pal Parking, but I heard there's no Orre data either.It has be confirmed that there will be connectivity to the fourth generation because there is going to an in-game event (http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/zoroark.shtml) that is activated by a special event legendary dog. This will also allow you to connect to the third generation with the fifth and because the fourth generation will act as an intermediary. On the topic of a pal-park in the fifth generation I think it is 50-50 chance that a pal-park is included because of the lack of GBA slot on the newer Nintendo DS versions.

Well, I think that they should include it for people like me who still have DS Lites because A. They can't afford it. And B. Because they don't really care about getting the newest versions of stuff.

agreed. they could have a different option like:

migrate from GBA game
migrate from DSi channel
migrate from trading

migrate from trading could be used if you don't have a dsi but would still like to get your pokemon from SS/HG or D/P/P.

This is a great idea. I have a DS lite and I don't want to get a DSI. If they did this, then Pal Park can carry on appearing the games.

I love this idea. It would be a great selling point for the DSi from Nintendo's point of view and would be far more efficient than having to use 2 DS's. Although they've confirmed to have inter-gen battling so I'm still hoping on 2 way trading Time Machine style, although if they implemented this too it'd be great.

I say forget migration, forget Pal Park. Trading, or something like Pokémon Box, would be heaps more efficient. Time to move on from legacy GBA support, time to move onto newer things.

And really, Pal Park is so inefficient. Why would you want it back?

Knowing GameFreak, I'm going to say that it is most likely they'll just scrap the Pal Park altogether. We'll probably get some sort of time machine system like we did when trading between RBY and GSC. As long as they make trading more efficient (drag and drop entire boxes, anyone?) I'll be fine with that.
