I'm trying to transfer my Pokemon form fire red all the way up to sun. I'm just wondering when I transfer my Pokemon in the bank from Pokemon black to Pokemon sun, will that Pokemon say that it was traded by my character from Pokemon black, or is it just not traded at all. I'm very confused.

A Pokémon is recognized as an outsider if its recorded data about its original Trainer does not match that of the player for the current game. In Generation II, this check only includes the Trainer ID number. In Generation III and IV, this check includes the original Trainer's name, Trainer ID number, and Secret ID.

Unless the two games have the same trainer ID and the same secret ID, that Pokemon will be an outsider. I'm pretty sure its original trainer will be the Fire Red game and its location will be, "met in a trade".
