    I'm thinking of the best way to update my current living dex on XY. In theory, moving just the new pokemon from SunMoon should take the least amount of time, but is that possible? I heard that pokebank will not be available for SunMoon until 2017.

    That won't be possible. Assuming you meant transferring to the games themselves from SM to XYORAS. They posted a graphic recently actually, should answer your question.

    Um...
    You can't bring Pokemon from Sun and Moon to ORAS/XY. Even with the Pokemon Bank both Pokemon from Sun and Moon and Pokemon that have already been transferred to Sun and Moon can't be brought to a previous generation.
    You'd have to bring everything from X/Y to Sun and Moon. There is no legitimate alternative right now.

    Or hope for PHbank support for S/M... its pretty legit (or at least so I think)
