Pokémon Bank Now Compatible With Sun & Moon

The time has finally come, Pokéfans. If you have a subscription to Pokémon Bank you can transfer your favorite monsters to Sun and Moon now. Check out the details directly from Nintendo below:


Calling all Pokémon fans! Pokémon Bank is now compatible with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon! Pokémon Bank is an application that lets you put Pokémon you’ve collected in your games into Internet-based storage boxes. Until now this service has only been available for Pokémon Omega RubyPokémon Alpha SapphirePokémon X, and Pokémon Y. Starting today, it also supports Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon—now the Pokémon that adventured with you in Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y will be able to join you in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon!

With this update comes a new Pokédex function too: the application will read your save data from games you connect it with, so you’ll be able to see information about Pokémon registered in each of the Pokémon series games—even about Pokémon that don’t appear in the Alola region of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

Poké Transporter is also receiving an update—to be compatible with the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon RedPokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition. Deposit the Pokémon you’ve collected in those games into Pokémon Bank, and you can send them to Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon as well.
