I wish that were, true, but it's not, so...= /

But let me clarify by saying that all Pokemon games released before 2003 (the release of Ruby and Sapphire) have no connectivity whatsoever with the games released after 2003. This is because Ruby and Sapphire introduced a complete overhaul of the training system with new IV properties, natures, and a more delicate EV training process. All the Pokemon before 2003 weren't designed the same way, and thus they couldn't be transferred. It's kind of unfortunate, but I, for one, enjoyed abusing Suicune's god-like stats in Stadium 2 while it lasted.
