Pokémon: Sun & Moon

Pokemon Bank

Vincent Lau

Pokemon that cant be sent to 6th generation games will be highlighted.

For any serious Pokemon trainer, Pokemon Bank is a solid investment. This handy app connects with Sun and Moon and any of the 6th generation games (X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) and lets you transfer and store up to 3,000 Pokemon online.

Pokemon Bank is available to download from the Nintendo 3DS eShop for free, although you need to pay a nominal fee (4.99 USD) to use its services for a year. If you don’t renew after the year’s over, you can still withdraw your Pokemon, but depositing Pokemon will become impossible.

Additionally, Pokemon Bank comes with a companion app called Poke Transporter that can import Pokemon from the 5th generation games (Black, White, Black 2 or White 2) or Virtual Console games (Red, Blue and Yellow) to Pokemon Bank, making them ready for use in the recent games.
