    I don't quite understand how to trade pokemon between the new VC re-release of Yellow, Blue and Red. I downloaded the Poke Bank, but it keeps saying I don't have X/Y or Alpha/Omega, and closes down. I find it hard to believe you can transfer Pokemon to the new "unreleased" Sun/Moon. Is there going to be an update later on for within the game. Strange.

    You can't use the pokemon bank just yet
    They will release an update where you can transfer the pokemon to Sun and Moon
    For now you can only trade between the VC games. You just nees to head to the pokecenter and go to talk with the women at the right desk. When the game asks to save and youve done that, the game will give you a menu on the bottom screen. The rest is simple:)
    So you do need two 3ds or 2ds with both pokemon red/blue/yellow installed.

    Apparently you can't use Pokemon Bank yet with Blue/Red/Yellow. Most likely Pokemon Bank will receive an update at some point (perhaps when Sun/Moon is released, or earlier, idk). Pokemon Bank currently isn't programmed to support R/B/Y.

    Does this work through the IR port?

    No. It works through the wifi.

    Trading is done the same way as per link cable trades back then, except through Wifi locally with another 3DS.
    A patch is in the romfs, that redirects the RAM pull to open up VC menu,
    connect to your friend who also pulled up the menu, and you can access the trade center after that.

    It's not online btw, only local.

    I don't see why that is so hard to believe.

    Rayquaza with Dragon Ascent cannot be deposited to XY,
    so they can easily block VC transfers to Gen VI.

    Also, SunMoon is on Gen VII, so the Pokebank system may be revamped slightly.
    Perhaps it'll work like Poketransporter, and one-way the Pokemon straight to Gen VII Pokebank,
    hence not being able to send them to Gen VI.
    (also, these pokemon may have new abilities *hopes*)

    Also, the update for the transfer is not up yet..
