Pokemon Transfer and Pokemon Bank was updated yesterday to be compatible with generation 7. Additionally, Pokemon from the generation 1 virtual console games can be transferred up to generation 7. Pokemon from generation 6 can be moved to generation 7, but once they've been on generation 7 they can't be moved back to an earlier generation.
Generation 1 Transfer Info:
Pokemon that are transferred from generation 1 always have their hidden abilities if available, which can't be changed by ability capsule.
Much like legendary Pokemon from generation 6 and onwards, Pokemon transferred from generation 1 have three guaranteed full IVs, the rest are randomized. Mew has 5 guaranteed 31 IVs.
Gender is random.
Effort values are erased.
Glitched Mew is blocked, unless it has an OT GF and ID 22796 which is the same as the event Mew.
Shinyness is determined based on DVs (gen 1 predecessor to IVs). If the Pokemon's Defense is divisible by 2, and there's a 10 in Attack, Special & Speed, the Pokemon is shiny.
When transfering a Pokemon from a Gen 1 VC game, the nature is determined by getting the remaining of the Pokemon's EXP divided by 25. For example, if a Pokemon's EXP is 1010, the remander would be 10 (40*25=1000, 1010-1000=10), so the nature would be Timid.

TMs that existed in Generation 1 that were not brought back in gen 3 and onwards in the form of move tutors or otherwise include:
Whirlwind, Razor Wind, Horn Drill, Take Down, Bubble Beam, Water Gun, Pay Day, Psywave, Submission, Mega Drain, Dragon Rage, Fissure, Teleport, Bide, Egg Bomb, Skull Bash, Tri Attack
TMs brought back as gen 3 tutors include:
Seismic Toss, Sky Attack, Body Slam, Selfdestruct, Counter, and Double-Edge, and Metronome. These are difficult to obtainable because Pokemon need to be transferred four times in order to bring up to generation 7 games. Additionally, Pokemon with these moves from generation 3 tutors cannot have their hidden abilities.
Here are some moves that were previously unobtainable from generation 1:
