Pokémon Bank is an application that lets you put Pokémon you’ve collected in your compatible games into Internet-based storage boxes. Until now this service has only been available for the Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y games. Starting today, it also supports the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games—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 compatible 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 the Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition games. 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.
