Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

So in these games we had to use a PokeTransfer machine (technically used on the other game, but still) to transfer Pokemon from fourth generation to the fifth. This meant playing a shooting Pokeballs minigame at the Pokemon to capture them, which could be time consuming.

- Do you like B/W's method of migrating? Is it easier than third > fourth?
- What's your highest score?
- How would you change this if you could?

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS GOGO.

I never tried it since I don't own 2 DS. But once I'm getting my 3DS, I'm definitely going to try this one out. I hope they still have the migration system with Gen VI.

I have used the Poke Transfer a lot in my Black version so I could collect several previous gen Pokemon that could only be obtained via said method. Thankfully I like to hoard my brother's old DS Lite since he hardly uses it anymore.

I was a little bit disappointed at the minigame though, sometimes I ended up not catching all the Pokemon within the time limit and having to try again so I could get them all transferred.

I've always managed to catch my transfered Pokemon before I ran out of time, and I transfer Pokemon a lot. I definitely thought it was easier than catching Pokemon in Pal Park.

I haven't used it yet but that sounds more fun than the Gen IV's method but ya it could be time consuming and i think the previous Gen's method was easier.

I only have the one DS, so I never had the opportunity to use it. Granted, I'm not sure how they would've implemented it otherwise (limited cross-gen GTS?), but even then, I would have preferred the Pal Park to that mini-game in Gen 5.

It's not more easier, but it is more creative and fun.
What's your highest score?
I don't remember, but I do remember me smiling when I saw it.
How would you change this if you could?
I would make it a bit more simpler to catch Pokémon.
