So, I've got a copy of Soulsilver with my team I've had for a while. I'm looking at moving them across to X&Y.

Now, from what I understand, the only way to do this would be to transfer them to Black & White 1/2 and then transfer them across to X&Y when the bank is up, correct?

Now my issue is, I don't have a legit copy of White, running it off an R4 card, will that still work?

Also my biggest concern is that some the Pokemon I have in Soulsilver I didn't get legitimately. My team consists of 2 that I had to get from a Platinum ROM. I haven't changed any of the stats or anything, in fact I normally moved them to soulsilver to then breed to produce and egg and then I'd use that instead of the Pokemon from the platinum Rom.

Since Soulsilver came out I've restarted it and moved Pokemon to and from the game to Platinum Rom and back, will this cause an issue transferring them to Y?

Short story: Can I trade Pokemon from Soulsilver, to a White ROM then to Y?

At the absolute max with Quick Feet, Mightyena hits a Speed of 201 (at level 50). That basically outspeeds anything not using a Choice Scarf and outspeeds positive natured base 130's by one whole point. Sounds pretty good to me, but there is enough Scarfers and Pokemon that can boost their Speed that Sucker Punch is probably a good idea (especially since I can't assume that yours has 31 Speed IVs and a Speed boosting nature). So put it on Mightyena.
Oh wow, I hadn't done the calculations and assumed it would be worse than that. I should mention that mine has a Jolly nature and max EVs in Speed but only 23 IVs in Speed. I think I'll keep Sucker Punch, but I'll try out Crunch too. Thanks!

Oh and teach it Thief so you can just steal the item without the need to catch the Pokemon. Butterfree, Vivillon and Yanma have Compound Eyes and can also learn Thief, and they're easy to come by too.
Oh wow, thanks this is really useful!

I believe you cannot use your white version for the 3ds cause the updates prevents the use of R4's. So if you are planning to migrate your pokemon through the pokebank, then you are better off purchasing an actual copy of the 5th generation game.

Is Vivillon the one with the different forms?
Where could I find a Vivillon or Butterfree? You say they're quite easy to come by - in Safaris and/or on GTS?

Yes, Vivillon has all those different wing patterns. Scatterbug and Caterpie can be found in Santalune Forest.

I used mine on Mewtwo so i could get the correct nature quickly.I was already tired with Zygarde and Yveltal.Since there are not any roaming pokemon this time around i dont think the M.Ball is that important.

Them coming from a rom shouldn't cause a problem I don't think, their stats and moves will all be legit.
But I assume you'll have to have the copy of Black/White/2 in the 3ds system so the flash cart won't work for that.

If you don't want the 5th gen games and it's only a small number of Pokemon, you might be able to get someone to trade from your rom to their game and them trade you it back to X/Y? That's the only other option I can think of other than buying a gen 5 game!

How do you trade exactly?

I haven't got a 3DS yet, but I originally thought that if you had a DS with a a Gen V game in it you could trade with a 3DS with X/Y in it wirlessly?

Try looking in this post in the Friend Code exchange thread. It has a link to the list of all the Friend Safaris for members here at PC and which Pokemon they have.

Good luck getting that Poliwhirl!

No a regular DS cannot connect to a 3DS. It is not possible. You would need two DS systems to trade to Gen 5. Then you put the Gen 5 into a 3DS to use Pokétransporter.

I'm not sure if two 3DS would work but I'm assuming it should. The DS and 3DS don't connect to each other though.

If you buy an official copy of a Gen 5 game you can trade the Pokemon you want from your SS.

When you use a 3DS with a DS game, it's like having a DS. For example. If you use Soul Silver in your DS and Black/White/Black 2/White 2 in your 3DS you can transfer your Pokemon to the 5th Gen game.

Actually a DS and a 3DS can connect wirelessly. I have done it before when trading between two of my 5th gen games. However, you cannot trade between X or Y and a 5th gen game which makes sense for obvious reasons.

Thanks, but I already did, and some people don't list themselves like I got a friend with a good electric safari, he's not listed.

One simple question. Is it worth getting? I've played Gen 1, 2, 3 and 4 on a ROM (not promoting it, I know it's not allowed). I enjoyed all of them, except 4 because it felt so different to me. I'm now considereing buying Y because the designs look so cool and I haven't experienced Pokémon games with wi-fi yet (:

X and Y are worth buying. The graphics are incredible, as are the new battle mechanics (Mega Evolutions, in particular).

Obtain them to reg them in your pokedex.

Well I would say 5IV+ 6IV then a 5IV+5IV. I got a 6IV Froakie from a 6IV and a 5IV.

One of the parents needs to have Rough Skin as an ability in order for the baby to have it as an ability. Males with Hidden Abilities can only pass them down when they breed with a Ditto (I think).
