Hey is it okay if I join this group without having any Pokemon MOCs? Well anyways, here's what's bothering me: I predict that, after the release of HeartGold and SoulSilver, the fourth generation of Pokemon will draw to a close. Here's why this bothers me: I also predict that Pokemon in current (fourth) gen games will not be able to be transferred to next (fifth) gen games. I make this prediction based on the fact that the first and second gen games are compatible (Pokemon from the first gen games can be transferred to second gen games) and the third and fourth gen games are compatible (Pokemon from the third gen games can be transferred to fourth gen games). The cutoff point so far has been every two generations, so that means that after the fourth generation, we're due for another one. Another thing that makes me think it will be cut off is all of the cheating/hacking. It is my understanding that Nintendo chose to simply give away Darkrai and Shaymin at Toys R Us with Classic ribbons rather than use the in-game events (Member Card and Oak's Letter) because of the abundance of cheating (please correct me if I'm wrong). With the presence of Action Replays and Pokesav, I'm convinced Nintendo will make sure that Pokemon from this generation cannot be transferred to the next generation games. This bothers me because of all the time and effort that I've spent collecting and training my Pokemon in my Pearl game. So far I've logged almost 470 hours of play time, and I've attended many giveaway events in real life. So if they come out with new main series Pokemon games that aren't backwards-compatible, that will mean it's all been for nothing.

That would be terrible, I've caught EVERY SINGLE POKÉMON! Not being able to transfer them would be awful. It's possible Nintendo will make Gen IV games compatible with Gen V games though. First of all, lots of people were annoyed that they couldn't transfer their Pokémon from Gen I and II to Gen III or IV. Also, cheating only really matters in competitive play, so they could probably just check people's teams to make sure they don't have any hacked Pokémon (I never use my Darkrai, Shaymin, or Arceus to be fair to others, my Mew and Celebi are fine, though!).

You mean Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus? Although I don't know how you got a legit Arceus, I also have a legit Darkrai and Shaymin from the TRU events. My point is that Nintendo won't let them be transferred to next generation Pokemon games, meaning that my trips to Toys R Us will eventually be made pointless.

I'm afraid that's impossible. With Pokesav anyone can perfectly replicate legit Pokemon down to the last detail, so the most Nintendo can do is check for illegal movesets and stuff (Wondertombs, for example). I hope you're right, though.

That's not a Nintendo-sponsored event, then. They aren't distributing the Azure Flute, Member's Pass, or Oak's Letter because of hackers (lol, I have all of those items!). The only way possible to get them legitimately (in the US) is from Toys R Us, and Arceus isn't available yet. Arceus is being distributed in Japan starting July 18 (It's level 100, and knows Judgement, Roar of Time, Spacial Rend, and Shadow Force).

Yeah, I've heard stories of unofficial item/Pokemon distributions. I'm skeptical that those giveaways you mentioned were officially endorsed by Nintendo.
