    Hello guys.:hrth:
    For quite a while, I've been trying to complete my Pokédex in XY, a lot of trouble with the legendary ones, and I've got some (hopefully brilliant) idea: I've been thinking about playing all other Pokémon games, starting from FireRed / LeafGreen in GBA, in order to get all legendary ones I could find. The point is, Ive been looking quite a while on internet for it, about how to transfer those Pokémons found on earlier generations, onto the next generations, without the real GBA or DS, and I haven't found so much useful info.
    I found a lot of "Put the GBA game into your DS", "Use the cable", "Use the wireless cable", and so on, a few guys asking about the same question as me, but not so much answers. But the point is, I don't have a GBA, nor a DS, nor any cable, nor any real game, just a 3ds and the XY, and of course, a PC, internet and lots of time to search for it:gba:...
    I could even use some emulator on my PC to make those changes, I don't really really care. I mean, open two emulators on my PC to trade, or somehow connect my dstwo Pokémon game to my PC, use my SD Card to trade on my PC, I don't really know how, but I guess you got the point, I could do anything (as far as it's free, of course :lol:) to get it...
    BTW, I have a friend who has Poké X, and I could use his game (or even put my dstwo on his 3ds) to transfer to mine by the end, if I reach to DS generations I'm fine...
    Thanks in advance, guys...:bow:

    Desmume does support GBA slot reads and saves as well. http://wiki.desmume.org/index.php?title=Faq#Does_the_.27GBA_slot.27_option_let_me_play_GBA_games.3F though there is probably a guide to doing PAL park on the DS entries.

    Your trouble will be getting it onto the 3ds pokemon game. The pokemon bank thing is as yet unhacked from what I have seen so the only way people do it from emulators, assuming you are not going to just straight up cheat/save hack on the 3ds pokemon, is to inject the save back onto an original DS game and then go via the pokemon bank.

    If I at least "reach" DS generation, I guess I can simply trade it to my friends 3ds, right??

    The issue will be getting it to a legit cart so that you can transfer it to the 6th generation games. Since you cannot simply inject into Bank/Transporter, you need to get your Pokémon onto a legit cart first. If you have a flashcard for the DS this will be able to be done.

    You can simply convert the pkm files from the gen 4 games (get them with PokeGen) to pkx files and inject these files into XY with PKHeX

    Oh wait, with the method I posted you need to have a 3DS on an exploitable firmware (4.0-9.2). I just assume everybody to have that on here, sorry ;)

    I found that the cheapest way is to buy a legit Black or White 2 Cart (as White and Black have the multi select removed so moving to box 1 , 1 at a time is real tiring) then use a flashcart for HG/SS and use that for GBA to DS transfer and to transfer to B2/W2

    I ended up buying Pearl, Heart Gold, White, and Black 2 all legit in the end though.

    I have a dstwo, and that's why I though about doing this whole thing just to get some legendary. BTW, about PKHex , I guess it's kinda dangerous, and I'm kinda fuzzy sometimes, so I'd better do this whole thing, and buy a B2/W2 later on to transfer. Anyway, thanks for the hints, mainly the one about desmume, by the time I used desmume, I didn't know about this gba in ds thing...well, Thanks guys, again :bow:
