Can you transfer an egg from Sun and Moon to your Virtual Console Game of G/S/C? Because I have a special Chikorita Egg, which has Hidden Power with my desired type.

I transferred a pidgey weedle and rattata and they all had their hidden abilities big pecks,run away and hustle
AlextheDux93 (8 months ago)
Hi, I'm a Pokéfan from Italy, thanks for your explainations! As concerns your doubt, I wanna tell you that I received a Nidorino that came from Kanto and it has the hidden ability Hustle, so I suppose that all Pokémon that come from the first gen with this method have got the hidden ability! Bye!

Dempsy17 (8 months ago)

Marinosso (8 months ago)
hm i remember in generation1 you could have 252 IV on each stat so you can boost your pokemon by using the first generation?
FunMiner8 (9 months ago)
you can only get a pidgey in sun and moon through the bank luckily I have pokemon yellow to get that sweet sweet pidgey
Kozzy Kay (9 months ago)
I have download all the updates,I've done completely what you said and when I launch the poke transfer it says "searching for a target system".It never connects. I have tried all difefrent combinations with both my 2ds and my 3ds and I can't make it work to transfer pokemon via the poke transfer to my pokemon back to my ultra moon version.Haalp.
Alpha_Red_Panda (9 months ago)
This doesn't want to work with me... I transferred my chikorita to the poke bank but I can't transfer it to my Pokemon omega ruby... All it tells me is "you cannot move that Pokemon here" identification.... How do I fix this?
SuperMati 795 (6 months ago)
BuddyTheDog It's possible, but you need your 3DS with Boot9Strap and PKSM. But if you want to try it with the Pokémon Bank, then that's not possible, because the Pokémon Bank doesn't allows to transfer Pokémon from New games to Old games
BuddyTheDog (6 months ago)
supermati 795 can you transfer to sun and moon then transfer to omega ruby
Alpha_Red_Panda (7 months ago)
SuperMati 795 Damn alright thanks
SuperMati 795 (7 months ago)
Alpha_Red_Panda You only can move them to Sun, Moon, Ultrasun or Ultramoon. You can't move them to X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire.
luis94235 (9 months ago)

Trevor B (9 months ago)
yes there's breeding in sun/moon and its almost a joke how easy it is to hatch eggs lol look up fastest way to hatch an egg in pokemon sun and moon on youtube, i haven't gotten that far in my ultra moon yet but i suspect it's just as easy in ultra sun/ultra moon

Yesss!!
Aiden Horne (1 year ago)
Ahh Nintendo, always trying to find a way to take your money just because you want a Squirtle, Mew, or anything else from older games in Sun and Moon. Seriously Nintendo, make that service free, in fact, they should make that a feature in the actual games and not a stupid app they make you pay for.
TripJay21 (7 months ago)
so fucking cheap.....they have employees they need to pay...they have to pay for the servers and pay for maintenance. 5 bucks a year isnt that much.... all you have to do is save 2 pennies a day for a year and there you have it.
swiftgloom (8 months ago)
5 once a year is not a lot.
SinceGrafix (8 months ago)
Well actually are you paying 5$ for the space of the server, which is required in order to store your pokemon there for a full year, so I mean yea, the (data) size of an pokemon isnt this big, but somehow nintendo needs some money to get those servers working... Anyway, those 5$ wont break anybodys purse and you are supporting the franchise that you love at the same time... atleast its not that bad if you really think about it :^/ (sorry Im not a native speaker)

Lucas Entertainment (1 year ago)
you will need two Nintendo consoles or if you have a friend perhaps ask them
Sean Parkes (1 year ago)
If it's virtual console then bye. RIP my charizard. xD
Brock wree (1 year ago)
missinno is really pokemon from gen 2 that where deleted from red and saved for gen two so you may get a houndour or some thing like that
SuperMati 795 (7 months ago)
Brock wree If you trade it to Pokémon Gold, Silver or Crystal it may become a II Gen. Pokémon, but i'm not sure if you transfer it directly to Sun or Moon.
Thanks a lot!
Love Love Jello (1 year ago)
Do all the pokeballs the gen 1 pokemon were caught in get converted in regular pokeballs when transferred to Sun and Moon ? Let's say I catch Dratini in the safari zone with a safari ball, will he still be in one after I have transferred it over to Moon ? or will he be in a regular ball ?

ImperialGodzilla (3 months ago)
MuppetTuppet Actually, no. Just have R/B/Y on the virtual console, then download Pokebank and poketransfer to make the move. Simple
MuppetTuppet (3 months ago)
_ Mydood u can but its gonna be alot more things than using Pokébank.
ImperialGodzilla (3 months ago)
It should be able to. Do this process and transfer to that instead. 6th gen was the first to use Pokebank

Turbo CHUBZ (1 year ago)
Aw man I was so excited because I got a physical copy of Red and I thought you would be able to some way with an SD card to transfer Pokémon to Sun. Damn
Conan. Chapa (1 year ago)
What would be amazing is that they should also let you transfer Pokémon Sun,Moon, Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, and Pokémon X and Y to Pokèbank and then bring them to the original old school Red,Blue, and Yellow, it would be amazing to see Kalos and Alolan Pokémon playing in the original Red,Blue, and Yellow games plus seeing them in gen 1 sprites

If you transfer the Pokemon from red/blue/yellow to sun/moon, then yes, you could start over and not lose ur pokemon
silks7 (1 year ago)
Pokémon transporter only allows you to transfer from black and white as well as black and white 2. Not the original Pokémon red, blue or yellow. Unless there is a difference from Japan, USA and Europe
Davon T. V. (1 year ago)
silks7 I just tried Poke Transporter for Pokemon RBY. Worked like a charm.

shadowkat678 (8 months ago)
Not sure if you found this out by now, but this is not true. Those are the only two you need and it does in fact work. I just did it.
Kenneth Livesay (1 year ago)
you forgot to mention you need to go into the eshop and manually download the update.
Kenneth Livesay (1 year ago)
not red blue or yellow.unless you forgot some other app to download along with bank and transporter?
Kokichi Ouma (1 year ago)
Will the pikachu starter from yellow version still won't evolve when you transfer it to sun and moon?
