He is probably guessing if it is like the other Pokémon games you might just need a 2nd 3DS or a DS to transfer Pokémon between games. Gen III Pokémon was transferable to Gen IV, Gen IV was transferable with Gen V. So I'm thinking Gen V will be transferable with Gen VI.

I hope they find another way. Maybe a Pokemon channel type of thing. Where you transfer them there then to the new game. Seems very unlikely though.

Gen 1 and Gen 2 were transferrable too.  Well trade between them but yeah.  Not sure about Gen 2 to Gen 3 but I would think so.

They weren't due to hardware (read: link cable) problems. Hence the remakes of gen 1 and 2 games.

Not just that, because GameFreak changed so many of the core mechanics in Gen 3 it would be (or almost be) impossibe to convert Pokemon from Gens 1&2.

I won't trade my Pokémon much anyways. :P I started trading a bunch of them over to White 2 from White and HeartGold and it is such a chore I just can't be bothered to complete Y's Pokédex. There will be select Pokémon though, like my favorite team, that I transfer over to Y.

I'm kind of hoping they let us trade between the games rather then transfer, Since I could always use the Extra Box Space from the previous games.

Actually it's what KnightSkull said. In fact the hardware can feasibly be linked together to do GBC/GBA transfer, just nothing took advantage of it. The main reason was the internal data structure of the games themselves where Gen III had a much more robust data structure, which allows for many of the little things that would take took long to mention. Anyway I'm hoping there'll be a way to transfer. Probably with something like Download Play somehow, I'm not sure.
