Do you transfer Pokémon you've caught to future games when they come out, or do you play each game independently without transferring any Pokémon using only the mons obtainable in those games?

I never transfer Pokémon from older games to new ones, simply because I don't feel like it's necessary. I don't grow too attached to them and I'm not into competitive battling, so I just play the new games with the Pokémon available in the region!

I used to transfer all of my special and Shiny Pokémon, but now I only transfer Pokémon that I plan to keep on my team. I've got a bunch of Pokémon wasting away in the PC that I could've used on my teams in previous games if I hadn't transferred them...

I only ever transferred legendaries tied to events (like the three Regis from Gen 3 via Pal Park for Regigigas), and rarely transferred regular Pokemon from between game versions. Truth is, I have nobody else to play with, so I never really had the chance to trade between versions like Game Freak really wanted me to do. #singledslyfe

99% of them yes, though I played most of Ultra Moon thinking you had to beat the E4 in order to transfer, but boy was I wrong. Just get the Pokedex and then transfer away. Oh silly me. Now Ultra Moon is my pixel dust collector...and I guess it will be for gen 8 because no national dex *cries*

The rarer Pokemon/shinies that I have, yes. I find it fun playing around with my shinies and mythicals. ^^

When I get a new game I only play with the new Pokemon but when I beat the game and get to the post-game I do transfer all of my previous teams, shinies and other to me special Pokemon. I like to have them all in one place so I can use them for various post-game things, collecting new ribbons,...
On my UltraSun for example I have a few Boxes of my old teams as well as a "VIP" Box with my first shiny, first level 100, first legendary, ribbon master and other for me special Pokemon. It sucks that this tradition of bringing all of my Pokemon to new Regions and "continuing the journey" is probably over forever because of this new "no national dex" direction that the Game Freak decided to take. :(

I have a couple of times, though I've never really made a habit of it. I was too lazy to catch all the Unown again after collecting them all in FireRed though, so I transferred them up to HeartGold to complete the Unown Dex, traded them to Platinum, and then I think transferred them up to White 2. Was definitely a pain in the butt moving 28 Pokemon around that I really had no intention on using other than to preserve my collection.

I always transfer my living dex to the new game as it becomes my main one. I try not to use any of my previously bred pokemon on first run through though so as to not spoil the game.

I used to, but I don't plan on doing that this gen save for a couple of shinies, provided they're in the dex.

Hmm, it all depends.

To root it to about pure Data, is not the way to play the Games. You have to acknowledge each Pokemon as a unique Creature; no matter what form its in! And, you have to acknowledge each Character that you occupy as being a portion of yourself. Wherever you bring that Pokemon, it will see a new World. A new Land, new Trees, New Water, etc.

Usually though as a kid, it was because my Brother wanted to Duel me with the only Game I had Pokemon in! Gold Version! So he'd bring in his Zapdos, Mewtwo, etc. All the usual coolies of the 1st Generation.

I've been trying to lately, starting with Black and White because my link cable for my GB and GBA broke. It also depends on the Pokemon, like if I have Event Pokemon from GameStop or a Nintendo online event, or a shiny Pokemon (I dubbed both Treasure Pokemon), I'm trying to keep them with me in every game. Of course, if Sword and Shield don't have specific Pokemon in the 'dex, I'll transfer them to Ultra Moon instead, since I've yet to even start that game due to focusing on Ultra Sun for a while.

In more recent games, no. I don't feel like paying money to access Pokemon Transporter. But older games? I did, yes. I don't think I'm going to continue to transfer to Pokemon Home, either, it feels like a waste of time if I might have to pay for it.

Haha it's fine dude!

Most of these Pokemon Games can't be that worth it if a Company is making you buy a whole new several hundred dollar Console for it. Classic 101 Rule is you always have maximum 2-3 Consoles for a Franchise's Games.
