Do you think they will have the Time Capsule in B/W like they did in G/S/C? Or, do you think they will have some sort of migration method involving the use of two DS's? Or do you have a completely different thought on this?


Personally, I hope that they will have some way to get pokemon from D/P/Pt/HG/SS, because I've spent a good amount of time collecting all the pokemon I have and training them all. It would be a shame if they made us restart again.

I'm more inclined to believe that they're going to go with the latter and have some sort of migration method.

In my opinion, they could perhaps do something based on the DS' internal memory, whereby you put in your B/W game card, choose a menu option to migrate from Gen IV, remove the cartridge and put the Gen IV cart in, select the ones you want to import, save and switch off. Put B/W back in, and go to the time capsule/PalPark-esque place within the game and get importing.

Not sure how viable or possible this would be, though.

I think that it's likely we'll get something like that. I hear a lot of people talking about Gen IV/ Gen V compatibility, but... they're different generations. By their very definition, they're NOT compatible. I think that the pokemon will need to be migrated somehow.

I think there'll be a Time Capsule sort of thing.

Pal Park was because there's no way to connect a GBA game and a DS game (and you could have both in the one DS). Because BW and DPPt are both DS games and they have to be on two handhelds, I think it'll be a Time Capsule thing.

...although, the GTS might become interesting...

If they're already imported/importable then a "time capsule" wouldn't necessarily be needed.

uhhh...the Time Capsule was so you didn't trade a GSC Pokemon into RBY and get a Missingno. Likewise, a Time Capsule sort of thing will be necessary to prevent you trading, for example, a Zorua into Diamond and getting a glitch.

If that's the case that could/would be possible, but they may add new functions to be able to prevent such a thing happen without the now primitive "Time Capsule". New ideas are always introduced, though something of the sort is defiantly plausible.

if they put the time capsule in, i hope it doesnt take u ages to get it, like in frlg. its been proven that we can use get 4th gen pokemon into bw somehow with the shiny dog trio, so something must be implemented.

I'd say they're probably going to go for some sort of Neo-Time Capsule. I mean as both Gen IV and V are both DS games, then I don't see why they can't do something in the same vein as Gen I/II connectivity.

I hear a lot of people talking about Gen IV/ Gen V compatibility, but... they're different generations. By their very definition, they're NOT compatible.

You've clearly never played Gens I or II...

Myles
May 25th, 2010, 06:52 AM
The forwards-backwards compatibility is due to if the Pokemon would lose information when going back to an old generation. Gen I had nowhere to store whether a Pokemon was male or female, so if you traded a Pokemon back and forth between the two, each time its gender would have to be redetermined.

To get around that Gen II had gender based on stats (as a result female Pokemon always have lower attack than their male counterparts in Gen II). This went for gender, shinyness, etc. Since Gen III had no backwards compatibility, it could completely remake the system. Thus female Pokemon can be just as powerful as male ones now. And shinyness no longer is dependent on Pokemon's stats.

Gen IV made it so that it was only forwards compatible. That way Pokemon won't lose details when they go back, because they can't go back. There's no hardware reason Gen IV couldn't have allowed backwards trading (possibly there was with Gen II -> Gen III, but I don't know). With Gen V it could go either way

tl;dr: Backwards compatibility is dependent on more than just hardware capabilities.

Anyway, I think migration or anoher one-way trading system will be used.

They could possibly set it up so that you can use the HGSS PokeWalker to transfer Pokemon over, by allowing Pokemon to go from the Walker to the new cart (but not vice versa).

No, I never played Gen II. From what I understand, you could trade between the two games, but in order to trade from G/S/C to R/B/Y, you had to delete any new moves and only trade pokemon that were available in the original. I'm guessing that the same thing happened with battling, if battling were possible. You could only battle with RBY pokemon, and you couldn't use any new moves.

People here seem to think that there will be a patch or something that will update Gen IV and make it so that B/W can interact with D/P/Pt in the same way that HG/SS can. I just don't see that happening.

It's been confirmed that there will be some method. The legendary beast trio that JP players get downloaded to their copies of HGSS during the 13th movie will unlock something in BW. Later, we see thebeast trio members in a battle with Zoroark.That shows that there's going to be some method. I think the Time Capsule will return.

Sora
May 25th, 2010, 06:27 PM
I really do hope that the time capsule will return. I don't see why it can't be possible, as both Gen IV and Gen V will be on the DS. Time capsule couldn't be possible because of the major changes of Gen III and Gen IV (along with Gen II and Gen III), and because of the fact that they were for different systems (Gen I and II were possible because both were for the Gameboy).

If they do Pal Park, I will not be a happy person. :(

I just don't think that platinum and BW are of such different times so I think the term time capsule is misleading.

Im thinking of some sort of Airport... it would fit the cosmopolitan state of the game's cities. A sort of "send pokemon to help poor trainers in isshu" campaign lol
well maybe not, but a one way airlplane ticket seems interesting.

Not viable at all. The DS and DS lite store a small amount of stuff to the RAM that persists while the battery is still able to power the DS, but that stuff disappears instantly when the battery is removed. And typically, that space is used to store DS settings.

Sure, you could take advantage of the DSi's internal memory, but what about DS users? (Though it'd be bigger incentive to use the 3DS.)

The Time Capsule or even a standard trade center would really be the way to go.

The thing is there's no new Pokemon being introduced in HG/SS. HG/SS & D/P/Pt don't (to the best of my knowledge, and I'm sure I'm right) have the data for the new B/W Pokemon that will be introduced.

This being said: Time Capsule-like trading is for sure. How they'll do it or what they'll call it, I dunno. But it'll be similar I'm sure.

I just don't see that happening.You could not conduct a battle between a Gen. I and Gen. II game unless it was done on Pokémon Stadium 2. The most likely lay for transfer is a new time-capsule system. Interstingly it will allow for the Gen. III game to connect to the fifth with the fourth generation acting as an intermediary.

Obviously PKMN B.W will work off of different servers

Then this is a catastrophe. We can already redirect Nintendo's server to any other GTS custom server at our own will. If we discovered B&W's server directory....

That'd be a catastrophe if somebody did it with DP.

On topic, Trading between Gen V and IV is confirmed to compatible and will be trading and battling which each other normally (Of course not with Gen V Pokémon.), similar to what happens in II and I. DPPtHGSS will still have their own Wi-Fi servers, and we are unaffected. Which means, there is a chance that there is a building. 'The Diamond and Pearl Building' which is enter-able if we have Pokémon that:

Do not carry B&W-exclusive ribbons.
Do not carry B&W Moves.
Do not carry B&W Items.
Are not in new B&W Formes.
Are not introduced in Generation V.
Aren't Bidoofs.

The abilities won't matter since they are determined by the PID and\or class And if a Pokémon goes to a version that the Pokémon is even not the same, and goes back, the ability is the same in the main game. So, no. A Pokémon's ability will be the same if traded to a Gen IV then back to a Gen V game.

This of course may result into the implementing of an NPC that takes Ribbons away, or just confiscates them.

This is one. The other one is a new note in the Pokémon Centre:

We are terribly sorry. The other trainer is from a region that doesn't recognize some of either your Pokémon, their moves, their items or their Ribbons. Please fix these Isshus issues and try again.

This is for the battling an trading directly. My speculations for Wi-Fi.

Direct Wi-Fi:

Did anybody see the HGSS Wi-Fi? It has two sections, the DP system and the PtHGSS system. I bet in B&W we will have 2, the Gen IV and the Gen V sections. When you attempt to battle or trade with Gen V Pokémon, Moves or Items on hand, It'll show some messages. This is for example a trade between the RSE Remakes and the GSC Remakes

May failed to respond... --> SoulSilver

The other trainer is from a region that doesn't recognize some of either your Pokémon, their moves, their items or their Ribbons. Please fix these issues and try again. --> 'Magma'Ruby

This is probably what will happen.

GTS:

1- The Diamond and Pearl Area thingy
2- A simple choice in the GTS:

*Some button pressed.*

Would you like to trade with Sinnoh or Johto trainers? Yes\No

If No --> Continue in the Isshu GTS normally.

If Yes -->

You get the DPPtHGSS GTS Menu, and if you attempt to put a Gen V Pokémon and\or Gen V moves and\or Items:

The other regions don't recognize some of either your Pokémon, their moves, their items or their Ribbons. Please fix these issues and try again.

Just as simple as that.

This whole Isshu thingy is an Issue.

Speculation belongs to me, and only me, 11:28 GMT, 05\27\2010.

Either a time capsule or a new "inter regional trading service" to allow you to trade with different regions, in any case they will have something. The only thing I'm wondering about is if you will be able to trade straight away or will it be unlocked later in the game like GSC, I suspect many will disagree with me but I'm hoping for the second option as I like having to work for things (adds more worth to it when you do get it).

No I agree, I never trade my Pokemon over until I finnish the game.

And I think it will be just like HG/SS and D/P/Pl trading but you can't trade Gen V Pokenon to older games.

That's because the Pokemon found in Kanto were programmed into Ruby/Sapphire; this is not the case with the 4th Gen Games. More than likely it will be a one-way deal. Sinnoh to Isshu, not the other way around. Unless the Pokemon being traded have no exclusive moves and are from the previous Gens.

Really I, or many others including the person who you were responding to, can't truly explain what will happen. I doubt you will be able to just trade like nothing between B&W and Gen 4 Pkmn games since come on..it's a new generation and that'd be too easy. Also take into consideration that all Gen 5 pokemon games may not be on the DS. You can say ''well it would be retarted to start a gen on the DS and continue it on the 3DS'' but it could very well happen in my opinion. None of us know anything about the 3DS really yet, nor about black and white so we wind up at yet another dead end. D:

Pal Park could be kept. For people owning only a DSi some sort of new device could be used to migrate pkmn over to b&w into Pal Park, and for those with DS Lites/DS they could just migrate over from GBA slot.

Uhh... It's already been confirmed that you can. The Legendary Beasts obtained from the 13th movie must be transfered over to unlock a Zoruark event.
Anyway as I've said in the many other duplicates of this thread, I'm expecting a Time Capsule like device. RBY & GSC were both playable on the system just like DPPt & BW and used the Time Capsule to prevent creating glitches, so I don't know why they can't do it again. I don't think a Pal Park is a viable option because both games being on the system means 2 would be needed anyway and it was never very efficient in the first place.

my idea (for the third time)

B/W could come with a DSi channel download. (like mario kart wii did)
you put HG/SS/D/P/P into your DSi and go to the channel.
you can then migrate your pokemon from your chosen pokemon game.
plug B/W back in and you go to a pal park.
you have a selection of three choices.

1) migrate from DSi channel
2) migrate from DS game cartridge (requires special attachment for GBA slot on DS and DS light)
3) migrate by wireless communication

the third one would be used if you had two DS's.
put B/W in your DS and your other game into another DS
a selection on the other game comes up on the main menu and says migrate to Black or White.
and you can migrate like that.


but it's totaly obvious that nintendo is trying to ween us off of the DS and DS lights. so i want the channel one to really happen :)

Summary time!

The Time Capsule, found in GSC, was implemented to allow trade to and from RBY, but to keep new Pokemon and attacks from being traded to an incompatible game. It also emphasized a time difference between RBY and their sequels.

Pal Park, found in DPPt and HgSs, while allowing RSE and FrLg to communicate with the DS versions of Pokemon, was only a one-way deal. Once you transferred a Pokemon to Pal Park, it could not come back to it's original game. It seemed to imply that RSE, DPPt, and HgSs were all happening roughly at the same time.

At any rate, it's likely that the transfer is one-way, although adding something like the Time Capsule to BW could allow for "impossible" movesets, rather like the Shiny Gyarados-Mimic trick to get shiny Ditto. I'd have to wait until I've played them to decide what I'd prefer.

This is going a bit off topic, but it would be cool to have a new HM called “Time Travel” that only Celebi could use. That would be awesome… but it would NEVER happen, unfortunately. ¬_¬

Well, then I guess you quit way back when RGBY came out. And then again when the anime came out. And then again when RSE came out. And then again when FRLG came out. And again when BW got some gameplay videos.

In my opinion, they could perhaps do something based on the DS' internal memory, whereby you put in your B/W game card, choose a menu option to migrate from Gen IV, remove the cartridge and put the Gen IV cart in, select the ones you want to import, save and switch off. Put B/W back in, and go to the time capsule/PalPark-esque place within the game and get importing.

Not sure how viable or possible this would be, though.

They need some form of bringing the previous 493 Pokemon over that isn't a direct trade. More like a "take your Black/White card out and now insert your older one and select which ones" method. I've got almost 400 on Pearl and I was going to move them over to SoulSilver since I play that a lot more but it's too much hassle. It took about 20 minutes to trade 6 Pokemon back and forth.

The DS [Phat/Lite] has enough internal memory to handle one-system trades between IV and V. If Action Replay can do it, why can't actual games?

Well, then I guess you quit way back when RGBY came out. And then again when the anime came out. And then again when RSE came out. And then again when FRLG came out. And again when BW got some gameplay videos.

Black and White will be compatible with all five Generation IV games. While the full details are not yet known, transferring the shiny legendary beasts released with the 13th movie in Japan has been confirmed to unlock an event in the games.

There is connectivity. However, we are not sure. I myself expect full compatibility with methods similar to my previous speculation.

[PURE SPECULATION]
Guys, I was wondering, what if the Gen V games inject something into the Gen IV codes to support the Gen V Pokémon (I know it is impossible to edit a game's code in its cartridge using influence, but maybe Nintendo will develop a new way)? What if they are hidden in the game's code and can be unlocked by linking to Gen V games? We cannot know, for sure.

There will be connectivity, there will be compatibility. How? Amongst us the Humans, only Nintendo and the developers know.[/css-div]

1. Its funny that my thread which covered this exact same topic just dissapeared and this one has 2 more pages. :(

2. I'm PLEADING for a way to get our teams over to B/W. Maybe its the OCD in me, but I have to have my competetive pokemon in the newest generation. Thats just a must. As far as "Pal Park" goes? I have a feeling Nintendo will scrap that, and revert back to the old ways. The only reason the pal park was an option was to continue the usage of cartridge GBA games. With HGSS, and DPPt, every Pokemon is available in one way or another. They're trying to eliminate cartriges now. With B/W coming out, considering the version differences, (certain Pokemon only available in certain games, ie. reshiram and zekrom) they will HAVE to maintain some connectivity with the older games, just to be able to complete the National Dex. Which... to my anguish... will require over 500 Pokemon to be seen or captured. There goes next summer vacation. :P

The Japanese shiny legendary dogs released for the latest movie in Japan for Gen IV, have been revealed to be able to be traded over to Gen V for something to happen in-game about them (like with the event Regigigas). So there will be some compatibility, we're just not sure how much.
