For example, Clefable gets Soft-Boiled through gen 3 move tutors, which you can then transfer to gen 4 with the park, then to gen 5 with the dream area, then to gen 6 with poketransporter (but you need Pokemon bank, which is $10/year, then to gen 7 with Pokemon bank (for no additional cost), then to gen 8 with Pokemon home, which is $16/year. I believe it also gets Soft-Boiled through gen 1 virtual console move tutors/tms as well so you could also go Clefable from RBY Virtual Console on 3DS to Pokemon bank with poke transporter to Pokemon home to gen 8 SWSH.
So I want to know if it's possible to have Clefable with Teleport (since I know it's a gen 1 TM) and Soft-Boiled in gen 8. I think it is, but I also want to know if it's worth my time because I would need to spend some time and money. Here's all you need to know:
- I have Pokemon Bank
- I do not have RBY Virtual Console
- I have a 3DS
- I have a Switch
- I have SWSH
- I do not have Pokemon Home Premium, and if I must get it, I would prefer to pay for it yearly ($16/year)
So I guess basically all I need to know is how hard it is to get to a point where I can get Clefable with Soft Boiled in gen 1 virtual console and then transfer it and mint it and EV train, level it to 100 and bottle cap it. Oh yeah, and get a proper moveset on it.
This sounds like way too much work but I have a decent amount of money and way too much free time.
EDIT: So apparently Clefable only gets Teleport through gen 1 virtual console, not Soft-Boiled. So calculate it using the RSE method then. Forget Teleport, I'd rather have Soft-Boiled.
