Topic: Question about the GB pokemon and bank

Posts 1 to 6 of 6


If I play through yellow to get the starters then put them in the bank. Can I restart yellow and still deposit other pokemon in the bank if I have started the new game?

The GB games themselves are not compatible with Pokebank.

You'll just be able to transfer the Pokemon from Red, Blue and Yellow to Moon and Sun via unspecified methods.

Nope, it's not even supported with pokemon bank yet, and when it gets added it's going to be for transferring the pokemon over Sun/Moon.

EDIT: Team Rocket's @Meowpheel seems to have ninja'd me.

I'm pretty sure they did say it would be through Pokemon Bank. Either way, when it's done I assume you'll be able to restart your game and copy over more. Though only once they've enabled it which AFAIK they haven't yet.

Though with Yellow there's not much of a reason to restart the game for something else. Helix/Dome fossil maybe but other than that. All of these Pokemon can be acquired through the GTS anyway. So the ability to transfer Pokemon is really just a nice extra. A way to take a team build in Gen1 and bring it into the newest games. Maybe with some moves that those Pokemon couldn't learn in later games or something.

That's a rather drastic con that sideringyou can just breed Kabuto/Omanyte like Lopunny in the newer games.
