Poke Transporter is Giving People Issues

Unread post by Artisan »

There are plenty of articles out of the eShop being closed so those without paid plans for Bank can never transport your Pokemon from Generations up to 5 with Poke Transporter. The alternative is to have a friend where it works OR use the NDS Adapter Plus and the 3DS Save Dongle and use the classic PKHex and move them over yourself and do what Nintendont. Haven't tested this, however I never cared because all you get out of the VC games is Hidden Abilities and maybe other things if you are lucky or excellent at the 8F glitch. That's not me. So I will just use Bank normally with my 3DS games instead and not care about the rest because they aren't competitive prior to Gen 6 for most people (I didn't transfer some from 4 but I'm a rare person*) and if it's not possible still for most people... I say Scarlet and Violet are the easiest Generations to make competitive Pokemon anyways if you needed one and don't waste time on certain Pokemon because of dexit.

*I might inject some Pokemon via PKHex tho in the method I brought up in the second sentence. I like Infernape and Empoleon and my SwSh dexit mons from Sinnoh.

But Pokémon Bank is free now! If you downloaded PokéTransporter, it will still work! I don't see how this is giving people issues... Unless there are literal errors being given when attempting to use said applications, the title of the topic might be a bit misleading! You may want to change the topic title to something else! Not gonna force you, but...

Pokémon Bank was never discontinued though its days are pretty much numbered from this point onward since Game Freak and/or The Pokémon Company can't keep it running forever.

PKSM, a 3DS homebrew Pokémon save editor app, is another workaround to bring over Pokémon directly from your Game Boy (Colour) Virtual Console and Nintendo DS Pokémon games over to your 3DS Pokémon games that hasn't been brought up here yet.

GameTZ is the new home of my game collection listing. I don't do game trades yet nor know how to do so properly.

I believe that as long as Pokémon HOME is still in service, Pokémon Bank will still also remain in service, because they are POSSIBLY being managed the same way, and separately from Nintendo Network! As long as Pokémon HOME is around, Pokémon Bank will be, too! Whether this is ACTUALLY the case or not, I don't know! This is just what I think (and HOPE!)!
