Default Pokemon transfer/trade with self using only one 3ds?

I'm wondering if theres some super trick (running multiple games at the same time?, allowing a computer to trade with console?, etc) that would let me transfer pokemon from previous generations (white 2 for example) to x/y when it comes out, using my single 3DS.

Word on the street is you would need a 2nd ds/3ds to do such trading, but i hope someone is clever enough to beat that!

In Pokemon X & Y, there is going to be a minigame called "PokeHunters".
To play this game, you need to have three other friends who have the exact same game you are transferring from.

All four of you then use the 3DS gyroscope to throw PokeBalls at your Pokemon, and there's only a 30% chance you'll catch it. And only the person who catches all of their Pokemon first get to keep them.

Obviously I'm making this up, but it still sounds better than the stuff they make you do in Gen IV & V. Why can't things be more like in Gen II?

Well, I think it's much easier to find a friend who has a DS.
Trying to trade with the pc is not worth the hassle

I'd be willing to put my money on the fact that you'll need a second DS/3DS to do the transfers, but it'd be really cool if you didn't. They should release a 3DS app that allows you to "pull" Pok?mon outta whichever game is currently in your console and then transfer them to your X/Y later on. We've already seen similar "transferring" from app to game with the recent Dream Radar, where you could catch Pok?mon and items to transfer into your White 2 or Black 2. So it could be possible, but it might just be too good to be true.

I hope so. I think it's about time we got a proper transfer application like that. Sure the minigames are fun the first few times you play them, but when you have a collection of several hundred Pok?mon... Oh boy... Watching the trade animation or playing the minigame over and over and over is just mind numbingly dull.

I couldn't agree more! The only Pok?mon games I currently own are White 2 and Soul Silver, and there's at least 100 Pok?mon I'll be wanting to transfer from those two once I get to that point in X, so I can only imagine the headache for those people who'll be transferring from multiple games. Plus, they normally only allow you to do six Pok?mon at a time, so something that could be as easy as transferring Pok?mon to a box could take hours of mind-numbing repetitiveness.

As someone who transfers all my trained ones and one from each line through each of the last 3 or 4 games to come out. I feel like it is really needed. Though i think it would just be nicer and easier if there could be a way to transfer over pokedex info instead of having to own them in each game. Then i wouldn't care so much about having one of each type on my newest gen.
