    So im going about a loooong process to trade pokemon from gen 3 using my 3ds gpsp emulator, all the way to sun and moon using pksm. I can use drastic on my phone to migrate pokemon from gen 3 to 4, but i have no way of transferring 4 to 5. I have a legit white 2 cartridge, but platinum is on a flashcart. I know the legit way to transfer involves the 3ds directly reading pokemon from slot 1, so how could i go about doing this? Worst case scenario i use an emulator.

    You could use pkhex to transfer your gen3 mons however you would need a way to dump your white2 save. In all honestly it would hellva easier just to use a ds flash caart that way you could access the saves and use pkhex no problem.

    Kaphotics released a transfer tool way back in the day that converts .pkm files from gen 4 to 5. If I'm not mistaken, pkhex might even be able to do direct gen 4 to gen 6.

    If you have 2 DS (or a DS and a 3DS) you can transfer you gen 4 pokémon to a gen 5 game.
    I'd use pokétranfer. 1 year of pkbank only costs 5€, and you will be able to do this as many times as you want.

    Well my 3ds was banned, so i cant make purchases, but i can just use pksm's bank feature. But, if i do a transfer, doesn't it read pokemon from the save in slot 1 duting the transfer? I have a white 2 cartridge, but platinum is on a flashcart. Also yes i have 2 3ds'.

    You can transfer from platinum to white 2, and use that one to transfer. Idk if pksm can read white 2. If it can, then there you have it :).

    Unless he has an actual platinum cart, he can't transfer since the transfer process requires a real gen 4 cart.

    Hmmm no it doesn't. I mean, I've done it xD. I've used a Diamond version from a flashcard to transfer to my Black version, and from that to the bank...

    You can transfer from GEN 3 to GEN 6 directly with Pkhex, open your GEN 3,4 or 5 save in Pkhex. Now open Pkhex again so you have two copies of it running, open your GEN 6 save in the second copy. You can now simply drag the Pokemon across and the conversion will be done.

    I think that will be the easiest solution without access to real physical games and Pokebank.
