    So do you guys think it'll be impossible to put flashcarted Pokemon into the Pokemon Bank they're launching this December?

    My personal guess is yes, and I'll elaborate on it in the morning.

    What about you all?

    Only way I can see is If you can transfer your save onto a retail card

    Yes you can if you move them to a legit game first. They're indistinguishable from legit card Pokemon as the game is the exact same.

    I think it will be possible. As long as the Pokemon isn't "illegal", a normally caught or traded whatever Pokemon should be possible. At least I hope so I have a lot of Pokemon in my Soul Silver rom I want to transfer, I figured trading to my legit Platinum then sending it to my legit Black 2 should work out fine.

    As a former pokegen user who still has the knowledge of how to create a perfectly legit pokemon and all the barriers of what makes it legal, it will definitely be possible to transfer in it.
    The only reason it would not work is if they've changed a few security checks.
    And even that will be hard to do because of the fact that when j create a pokemon from it, u can assign where it is caught, events, and everything that would otherwise make the pokemon illegal if left untouched.

    how can they check a bunch of bits\bytes? if you use pokegen like you should, and trade it to a legit cartridge (you will not be able to transfer directly from a flash cart to pokebank) there is no way of telling that bytes\bits are legit...

    pokemons are like a piece of "text"... there is no way they can find the pokegen ones... except if you mess with the stats\abilities\where you found it\etc

    i just hope they don't ban the legit pokemons with to much "security"

    and one of the things they can do is, you can't save traded pokemon on pokebank, in this case you will have more work to make a pokemon look like it was catched on the pokemon cartridge

    I'm actually starting to think that they are taking their time to make sure their system won't allow access to games booted from any Flashcard. About altered mons, they will be safe if transferred to a retail cartridge and if they pass the Pokecheck test or at least you know they are OK.

    Next time, i suggest you say it in your post. Or quote the others that had differemt opinions. It makes the one you're quoting very confused.

    Its 2 apps or maybe 1 app with 2 options no one is totally sure yet.

    Anyway what we do know is:
    Download PokeBank / Poke Transfer.
    Place Pokemon White/Black into DS
    Load POkeBank/PokeTransfer.
    Copy Pokemon to PokeBank via PokeTransfer/PokeBank.
    Take out Pokemon Black/White
    Insert Pokemon Y / X
    Load PokeBank/PokeTransfer
    Copy Pokemon to Pokemon X & Y
    Close PokeBank/PokeTransfer.
    Enjoy.

    Like i said know one knows if the apps will be 2 separate or if it will be just the 1 app that can send and receive. You would have to be online ofc during transfers from and to. A Flash card wont work as you dont transfer in game but instead via the app and the app will be looking for a retail game with retail game label of the correct size and shiz (or if downloaded for that) I can't see it working on any none retail card. Perhaps if the flashcard was a clone of white/black exact clone no loader or anything.
