Poké Transporter (Poké Mover in the Japanese version) is a Nintendo 3DS app that allows players to transfer their Pokémon to the Pokémon Bank from games such as Pokémon Black and White, Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Pokémon X and Y , and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. A legitimacy checker has been added to prevent a majority of "hacked" or "illegal" Pokémon from getting transferred over to any Generation VI game. If it detects a "illegal" Pokémon, the user will be banned from using the app. Pokémon transferred from this application cannot participate on World Tournaments. Pokémon transferred from this app will go to the "Transport Box" in Pokémon Bank. Pokémon must be taken out of that box in order to continue using this app. All items attached to the Pokémon are placed in the bag and if there is no room, the items will be lost. For Generation V games, Transporter only accepts Pokemon placed in Box 1. Also inappropriate nicknames will be converted to their default names when they go through the app. This app cannot be located and downloaded on the Nintendo eShop without being sent to the eShop by Pokémon Bank.
