Pokémon Bank update is live – compatibility with Pokémon Sun and Moon, and new features!

Pokémon Bank subscribers can now transfer their Pokémon from the Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow 3DS Virtual Console games to their Pokémon Sun or Moon game!

Additionally, two new features have been added: the Pokédex feature which will allow players to see information about Pokémon registered in each of the Pokémon games that have been connected to Pokémon Bank in the National Pokédex, and Adventure Records, which will allow players to look back on their adventures in the Pokémon series. Figures and stats like the number of Pokémon caught or the number of wild Pokémon encountered will be accessible from the saved data from each players previous Pokémon series games registered to Pokémon Bank.

By accessing the Pokémon Bank during 25 Jan – 2 October 2017 players will receive a Mewnium Z, the limited-time special Z-Crystal for the Mythical Pokémon Mew. Giving Mewnium Z to a Mew which knows the move Psychic, it will be able to use the powerful Z-Move Genesis. Mewnium Z cannot be obtained through normal gameplay.


Pokémon Bank is an online subscription service which enables players to withdraw and deposit their Pokémon from various Pokémon titles. This service has received an update today making it compatible with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. This means that it is now possible to bring Pokémon that do not natively appear in Pokémon Sun and Moon into the games so they can join you in battles and adventures. 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  Moon. All Pokémon sent this way will have some great individual strengths. Pokémon Bank  has an annual membership fee. For more information, visit Pokemonbank.com.

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!

Pokémon Bank is compatible with the following Pokémon games: Pokémon Black Version, Pokémon White Version, Pokémon Black 2 Version, Pokémon White 2 Version, Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon and the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow.
