The Poké Transfer Lab is a facility that appears in Pokémon Black and White and its sequels that allows the player to transfer their Pokémon from their Generation IV games, which include Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Pokémon Platinum, and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, similar to Pal Park in the previous generation. The building is located on Route 15, and can only be visited after the player completes the main story.


In order to transfer the Pokémon requested, two Nintendo DS systems must be used. Six Pokémon at a time can be sent over from their boxes. Unlike Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, a restriction of transferring six Pokémon every 24 hours is not imposed. Pokémon with held items, or know HM moves cannot be transferred. Once the player transfers the Pokémon selected, the Pokémon cannot be transferred back into the original game.



To obtain the Pokémon, a minigame must be played. The player is given a bow controlled by the touch screen that shoots out Poké Balls to capture Pokémon jumping between bushes. There is a time limit. There is a reticule on the top-screen that can display where the ball is likely to land.
