OH HAPPY DAY

Backstory first. So basically, during Gen 3 as a kid I lived in the Pokemon world, literally. The neighborhood was full of kids who were obsessed with Pokemon, from the nice guys across the street to the popular girl at the local school to the bully who would try to beat up the midget of the group until we'd save him and throw the thug over the fence and watch him get chewed out by his mom, and anyway we'd all always carry around Fire Red or Leaf Green ALL THE TIME along with that little wireless thingy whatchamacallit that looks like a little hat for the game boy. Literally every day all 3-8 of them, depending on extracurriculars and whatnot, would descend upon my abode and retreat to the battle room, where we had a huge sectional couch for mass battling.
I was always the champion of the group, with my ultimate team, almost every Pokemon in the game, and legitimate Mew for which I was greatly envied (and rightfully so, since I braved Toys R Us during rush hour in the days when event Pokemon had to be attached one at a time through a physical cord to your cartridge). Cue the tragedy--a few months after I got Mew at last, I found my cartridge to be gone. Considering in middle school currency my cartridge was gold, I was certain it had been stolen (wouldn't be the first or last time I had a game jacked), and for the next... god, like 7? years, I was mourning it daily, and searching through every drawer and pocket and case and box and etc... to no avail.
Cue last night, me in the basement, broke, out of space, and bored, cleaning out boxes full of old swag to sell on eBay for gas money. At the bottom of a box of random junk buried in the back, clacking around loose in the very corner, is that fucking Fire Red cart. I literally screamed, and I likely shed manly tears. My GBA SP has been fucked up for years, so I have no way to go through it right now and see my old mons and whatnot, but I'm working on getting another one for this purpose. I can't wait to see my old favorite team again after all these years, it was like being reunited with a long lost friend you thought had been kidnapped by Nazis (okay, it's hard to make an analogy for this, but you see my point).
And what timing! PokeBank is out! But help me here, now I'm a crazy old man and I'm way out of the loop with this fancy Pokemon transferring stuff. What is the process I need to take to get all my mons from Fire Red to X? I think I have a DS Lite still somewhere for the slot, but do I need to go from gen 3 to 4 to 5 or is there a more direct route? I have a game from every gen, fwiw. What's the fastest for mass transport?
