You Can Transfer Your Pokémon Now And It Changes EVERYTHING
Get the squad back together from your old Pokémon games!
As if the Pokémon gods haven’t given us enough this week with the surprise new Pokémon Duel release, now there’s more for Sun and Moon - transfers.
Now you can transfer your fave Pokémon to Sun and Moon using the wonder that is the Pokémon Bank!
So that means if you’ve got Pokémon in certain older games they can come with you to the latest titles. TIME TO GET THE OLD SQUAD BACK TOGETHER!
The games you can transfer from are - deep breath: Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X, Y, or the 3DS Virtual Console versions of Red, Blue, and Yellow - and breathe!
But the Pokémon gifting doesn’t stop there. By using the Pokémon Bank to make your transfers you’ll be rewarded with Mewnium Z-crystals - the Z-crystal that only Mew can use, in case you were wondering.
The catch is those crystals only work in Pokémon Sun and Moon and will be available for a limited time. But, that limit isn’t short - you’ve got all the way until 2 October to get claiming!
There is still a way to get Pokémon from older versions. If you want to get some from Black and White then you can transfer to X and Y or Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire to then transfer on through the Pokémon Bank.
Time to get moving those Pokémon. But be warned, once you’ve moved them out to Sun and Moon there’s no moving them back. Also Pokémon Bank isn’t free as there’s an annual fee to use it of $5 - not loads considering you can bring back all your fave old Pokémon, but #justsayin.
