An update is now available for Pokémon Bank that will enable the service to be compatible with the most recent series entries, Pokémon Sun and Moon.

This update can be accessed through the Nintendo eShop, where players can then proceed to transfer Pokémon they have captured in Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X and Y over to the new generation. Additionally the Poké Transporter has been updated, so that the original 150 Pokémon captured in the Virtual Console versions of Red, Blue and Yellow can now be transferred to Pokémon Bank, and then onward to Sun and Moon.

In celebration of this update anyone using the service can now obtain a free Mewnium Z-Crystal, which allows Mew to use its Z-Move in battle - Genesis Supernova. The Z-Crystal can be redeemed through the Mystery Gift application until expiration on 2nd October 2017. Please be aware Pokémon Bank requires an annual fee of $4.99 / €4.99 / £4.49.

Are you happy with the new update? Will you be transferring your Pokémon across?
