From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Relocator (Japanese: てんそうマシン Transfer Machine) is a feature available in Pokémon Black and White.
The Relocator is used to transfer any of the four Pokémon distributed to commemorate the thirteenth Pokémon movie—Celebi and the Shiny legendary beasts, Raikou, Entei and Suicune. The machine allows players to transfer over these Pokémon before they can access the Poké Transfer, which is only available after first beating the game, allowing players to obtain Zorua or Zoroark at an earlier time. The Relocator also transfers the event item, the Lock Capsule.
The Relocator is unlocked the same way as the Mystery Gift feature is unlocked in previous generations—by inputting certain phrases. In this case, the phrases 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. After unlocking the Relocator, it may be accessed in the same screen as the options for Continue and New Game. The scientist is located on 11F of the only building on the west side of the road connecting Castelia's fountain area with the gate to Route 4.
When choosing the Relocator option, players encounter screens and options similar to when transferring a Pokémon over via Poké Transfer. Because of this, transferring requires two Nintendo DS consoles (of any type, they may be varying) and Generation IV and V games of the same region, meaning a Japanese Black or White game may not transfer with, for example, an American Pokémon Platinum game. 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.
