Pokemon Bank Update Will Allow Our Pokemon To Get Some Alolan Rays In ‘Sun and Moon’

Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun has been out for quite some time now and our old favourites are still waiting to be brought forward on this new adventure to the Alola region. But the wait is over, because Pokemon Bank has just received a major update that will allow any and all Pokemon from Pokemon X, Y, Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby, Blue, Yellow and Red to be transferred over to a single copy of Sun and Moon.

All you need to do is insert the game you wish to transfer Pokemon from into your DS and move the Pokemon from the PC boxes into the Pokemon Bank. Then you insert your copy of Pokemon Sun or Pokemon Moon and transfer your Pokemon from the Bank to the PC once again. Lo and behold, your Pokemon will be able to get their tan on in the Alola Region.

But that’s not all Pokemon Trainers. Alongside this great new update, all Pokemon Bank subscribers will be given a special present – Mewnium Z, the Z-Crystal of, you guessed it, Mew. This Z-Power called Genesis Supernova calls upon a psychic DNA Helix that is eventually supercharged into a coalesced ball of pure energy. It looks amazing to say the least, and has the additional effect of creating a Psychic Terrain that will boost the power of any and all Psychic Type moves.

This special gift can be claimed by accessing the Mystery Gift function in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. So make sure to log into Pokemon Bank by the 2nd of October 2017 otherwise you may miss your chance to get this wondrous Z-Crystal.
