The Pokémon Company has concluded its special Pokémon Direct, and in addition to announcing Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, it had another announcement up its sleeve that we can enjoy very soon.

It's been confirmed that the Virtual Console releases of Pokémon Red / Blue / Yellow on 27th February will support Pokémon Bank, the subscription service that allows you to store your 'mon online. That means players will be able to bring their 'mon from the gen 1 games across to the new 3DS titles that are due in the Holiday season.

Are you pleased to see Pokémon Bank supported in these Virtual Console games? Let us know!
