This is only partially true. While you must choose six Pokémon to participate in the minigame, you aren't required to catch all of the Pokémon. If you only want to transfer say, 4 Pokémon, catch the ones you want in the minigame and let the timer run out. The four you caught will be transfered and the remaining two will not be transfered and remain on the 4th gen game iirc.
