Pokèmon Sun and Pokèmon Moon
As we celebrate 20 years since the launch of Pokèmon Red and Pokémon Green in Japan, the next era of Pokèmon games is being announced! Pokèmon Sun and Pokèmon Moon are coming out for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family in late 2016, with a new world, new Pokèmon, and new adventures to discover!
Major updates are planned for Pokèmon Bank to work with Pokèmon Sun and Pokèmon Moon.
Once Pokèmon Bank has been updated, you'll be able to use it to transfer Pokèmon you've caught in the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokèmon Red, Pokèmon Blue, and Pokèmon Yellow into your copy of Pokèmon Sun or Pokèmon Moon. Pokèmon from Pokèmon Omega Ruby, Pokèmon Alpha Sapphire, Pokèmon X, and Pokèmon Y can also be brought into Pokèmon Sun and Pokèmon Moon in the same way.
You will be able to use your existing Pokèmon Bank account to transfer Pokèmon from Pokèmon Red, Pokèmon Blue, and Pokèmon Yellow to Pokèmon Sun and Pokèmon Moon. Due to certain limitations, it is recommended that you install Pokèmon Red, Pokèmon Blue, and Pokèmon Yellow on the same Nintendo 3DS system as Pokèmon Bank.
