What is the proper way to change a pk1 or pk2 to a pk7?


Recommended Posts

When I was testing out transferring a gen 2 pokemon to gen 7 with pkhex it gave me the error that the pokemon didnt go through the correct transfer methods.

Im assuming that because of the massive differences between gen 1/2 and gen 7 that I must first push the Gen 2 to a gen 4 or 5 or something befor going to gen 7. 

So can anyone give me the rundown on how I would do this? i heard mention of a program called PK2PK but i havent looked into it. Just curious how I would do it in PKHex and what is the save/appropriate method of accomplishing this.

Just to add to what @theSLAYER said: this works for transfers that would legitimately be allowed in the real games. That is:

  • back and forth between Gen 1 and 2 (for Gen 1 Pokémon)
  • Gen 3 to Gen 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8
  • Gen 4 to Gen 5, 6, 7 or 8
  • Gen 5 to Gen 6, 7 or 8
  • Gen 1, 2 or 6 to Gen 7 or 8
  • Gen 7 to Gen 8
  • Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee to Gen 8

This always assumes a non-dexited Pokémon if going into Gen 8, of course, and any transfer to Gen 8 will technically be illegal without a HOME tracker.
