Relocator

The Relocator (Japanese: てんそうマシン Transfer Machine) is a feature exclusive to the original Pokémon Black and White that allows the transfer of specific event items and Pokémon from the Generation IV games.

Usage

This feature is used to transfer any of the four Pokémon distributed to commemorate the thirteenth Pokémon movieCelebi and the Shiny Legendary beasts (Raikou, Entei, and Suicune). It allows players to transfer over these Pokémon before they can access the Poké Transfer, which is only available after obtaining the National Pokédex, thus permitting the obtainment of Zorua and/or Zoroark at an earlier time. The unused event item Lock Capsule is also transferred to Pokémon Black and White using the Relocator.

The Relocator has screens and options similar to those of Poké Transfer. Because of this, transferring requires two Nintendo DS systems as well as Generation IV and V games of the same region, meaning that, for example, a Japanese version of either Black or White is not compatible with an English Pokémon Platinum. In addition, players are also prohibited from sending over Pokémon that know HM moves or that are holding items. This means that the Berries held by the event Pokémon must be removed.

Activation

The Relocator is unlocked in the same way as the Mystery Gift system in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum—by inputting certain keywords to answer questions. In this case, the keywords are used when talking to a Scientist in Castelia City, which can be done as soon as players arrive in the city for the first time. He is found in the eleventh floor of the only building on the west side of the road connecting Castelia's fountain area with the gate to Route 4.

After unlocking the Relocator, it may be accessed from the title screen menu.
