Pokémon Bank has been updated for use with the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games.
Pokémon Bank is an application and service that will allow you to deposit, store, and manage your Pokémon in private Boxes on the Internet. Pokémon Bank is a paid service, with an annual charge for usage.
Pokémon Bank is a powerful resource for players who like to obtain many different kinds of Pokémon, or for those who like to raise many Pokémon in preparation for battles and competitions. The application has a variety of search functions, so you can find the Pokémon you’re after among all of the Pokémon you’ve deposited.
Pokémon Bank has undergone major updates and now works with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, making it easy to transfer Pokémon from multiple copies of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon—including the downloadable versions—to a single game! You can also use it to transfer Pokémon you’ve caught in the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow into your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon. Pokémon from Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y can also be brought into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon in the same way.
When you download Pokémon Bank, you can also download the free linked application Poké Transporter. When you insert a Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y Game Card into a Nintendo 3DS system, you can use Poké Transporter to transfer Pokémon from these games into their own online Boxes. Then you can easily transfer those Pokémon into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon using Pokémon Bank.
You can use your existing Pokémon Bank account to transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow to Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Due to certain limitations, it is recommended that you install Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow on the same Nintendo 3DS system as Pokémon Bank.
Note that Pokémon cannot be moved directly from Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow to Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y via Pokémon Bank.
