** ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' begins the trend of utilizing the cloud service-based Pokemon Bank, which is intended to allow for forward compatibility of pokemon between games from the sixth generation onwards. A free Poketransporter app is provided to help you bring forward Pokemon from the fifth generation. And yes, this means you can [[ExaggeratedTrope transfer a Pokémon from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/Fire Red/Leaf Green to Diamond/Pearl/Platinum/Heart Gold/Soul Silver, from there to Black/White/Black 2/White 2, and finally to X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire]]. If you use all these transfer methods to bring a Pokemon from the original Hoenn games all the way to their remakes, you can get a special certificate for your Secret Base. The Bank is also compatible with the 3DS Virtual Console releases of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red, Blue, and Yellow]]'' versions, meaning Pokémon obtained in those games can be transferred to ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' and later games in the series.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX:'' You can import all the Al Bhed Primers found in an old game into a new game. (These allow you to understand the Al Bhed language).



* ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' has a NewGamePlus version of this. A special, separate save is made at the beginning of the game for battle trophies. When the player collects a certain number of battle trophies, they will unlock new rewards. Since this file exists as a separate save, the player can take on a boss multiple times, first to get one trophy, then resetting the game after the battle and fighting the boss again for another. During subsequent playthroughs, the player is allowed to carry over their battle trophies.
