POKÉMON BANK UPDATE NOW LIVE: NEW FEATURES AND COMPATIBILITY WITH POKÉMON SUN AND POKÉMON MOON ADDED!
Pokémon Bank players can now receive a Mewnium Z and transfer their Pokémon from Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow to their copy of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon
This highly anticipated update even allows players to transfer their Pokémon from the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console games Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Previously hidden Pokémon parameters from these Virtual Console games like Abilities, Natures, Sp. Atk and Sp. Def will become visible after sending them over to Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. All Pokémon sent this way will have some great individual strengths.
When players deposit Pokémon into Pokémon Bank, they can receive Poké Miles relative to the number of Pokémon they deposit and how long they are deposited for. These Poké Miles can be received as Battle Points, which can be exchanged in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon for various items. This means that players who have already got many Pokémon deposited in their Pokémon Bank accounts from previous games may find themselves getting a great number of Poké Miles!
Finally, players who access Pokémon Bank during 25 Jan – 2 October 2017 will be able to claim a limited-time special Mewnium Z, the Z-Crystal for the Mythical Pokémon Mew, which cannot be obtained through normal gameplay**. By giving Mewnium Z to a Mew which knows the move Psychic, it will be able to use the powerful Z-Move Genesis Supernova.
Pokémon Bank is a subscription service which has an annual membership fee. For more information, including ways to claim the Mewnium Z, please visit Pokemonbank.com/en-gb .
