The logo of Poké Transporter

The Poké Transporter (Japanese: ポケムーバー PokéMover) is an application for the Nintendo 3DS line of systems. It was released on the Nintendo eShop, serving as an extension to Pokémon Bank.

Features

This software allows players of the Generation V core series games to migrate Pokémon to Generation VI games. The service allows one-way transfer of Pokémon from Pokémon Black and White and Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 to Pokémon X and Y. When one of the Nintendo DS cartridges is inserted into the system, it will be possible to deposit Pokémon belonging to it on the Pokémon Bank. Then, such choices can be downloaded into a connected Generation VI game using the Nintendo 3DS.

Only the Pokémon from Box 1 can be transferred, limiting the transfer to up to thirty Pokémon at a time, and the Pokémon transferred to the Bank are moved to a special box, from which they must be moved to either the Bank or the player's Generation VI boxes to allow more Pokémon to be transferred. Any held items will be returned to the bag, or deleted if it is full. Kyurem must be in its normal form to be transferred.

Some Pokémon, notably most of the ones obtained through hacking, will be rejected. Pokémon with impossible EV totals, hacked stats, or Event Pokémon without their proper ribbons and the necessary "fateful encounter" status will be rejected. The Transporter will not reject Pokémon with impossible levels, impossible moves, or unreleased hidden abilities. Pokémon obtained through illegitimate means such as a cheating device may be rejected. However, cheating device generated Pokémon can bypass the check if they can be caught/hatched legitimately anywhere in a certain Gen III or IV game. Hence a Kyogre generated in SoulSilver Version cannot be transferred but a Groudon can even if it was not caught in the Embedded Tower. Generated Legendaries from a Gen V game can bypass the system only if they were caught in the location where they appear. Hence, a generated Zekrom from Black 2 can be transferred only if it was caught in Dragonspiral Tower.

On December 25, 2013, Pokémon Bank and the Poké Transporter were both released in Japan, South Korea, and other Asian territories. Due to high volumes of traffic throughout the Nintendo Network caused by a large volume of Nintendo Network IDs being created,[1] the Nintendo eShop was temporarily inaccessible.[2][3] When the Nintendo eShop was accessible again on December 29, 2013,[4] Pokémon Bank was removed from the Nintendo eShop (although players that had previously downloaded Pokémon Bank could still download Poké Transporter, which can only be downloaded through Pokémon Bank).[citation needed] In addition, the release of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter for the Americas, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand—originally set to be December 27, 2013—was delayed due to the aforementioned issues.[5][dead link]

On January 21, 2014, Pokémon Bank was re-released in Japan, South Korea, and other Asian territories.[6]

The service was launched in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand on February 4, 2014. [7]

The service was launched in the Americas on February 5, 2014.
