The Pokémon Bank update we’ve all been waiting for is finally available in the eShop!

This update adds the much anticipated compatibility with Pokémon Sun and Moon in Pokémon Bank, and the ability to send Pokémon from Pokémon Red, Blue, Green and Yellow Versions through Poké Transporter. Poké Transporter’s 1.1 patch requires 420 blocks, whereas you have to redownload Pokémon Bank entirely for 496 blocks.

In honor of the update, a Mewnium Z will be given as a gift to those who subscribe to Pokémon Bank. To receive it simply launch and use the new Pokémon Bank by October 2nd, 2017, and when you next play your Pokémon Sun or Moon games a new Wonder Card will appear in the Mystery Gift function. When used in game the Mewnium Z unlocks an exclusive Z-Move for Mew: Gensis Supernova!

  • Ultron

    Hallelujah praise Arceus!

  • ShinyXatu

    About darn time! Looking forward to catching some shinies in Sun and Moon and sticking them in the Bank for eternity.

  • zess

    Thank the gods!

  • zess

    Dang I’m so tempted to end my Chinchou chain but I’m so far in😣 ohhh decisions decisions!😦

  • Ithsme

    No free trial? 🙁

  • Spetsnaz

    Please tell me this means we can transfer our mews

    • Monkeyfuzz

      At the very least the gen 6 event ones. I assume the special R/G/B/Y ones too.

  • Can someone confirm that the shiny charm is obtained via the Alola dex still?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The dex doesn’t do anything to the in-game one from what I can see, so I assume it’s irrelevant to it.

  • CoolGlaceon

    How bout the mega stones tho

    • Healing Fae

      I need my mega stones for audino, mawile and Altaria pronto! 😛

  • Healing Fae

    oh shiiiitaki mushrooms

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Why can you still take Pokemiles?

    • zess

      Dang I’m going to have a ton of battle points

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I can take over 1500. I just wonder why the miles are available to collect from it too.

        • Maybe it becomes FC?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I don’t want to try since I’d rather have the BP.

      • Ultron

        I got 50 right off the bat

  • SpectralSeraph

    Update: Mega stones do NOT SEEM TO TRANSFER

    • Items never transferred tho…

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I was hoping some would, for Lucky Eggs mostly.

        • Oh yeah, such a pain. 🙂

          I have 3 on Sun right now, I stole 1 from GTS and took the other from my Moon playthrough…

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I have 1 from a trade on reddit, I think it’s cloned but as long as it works I’m fine with that.

    • Why do you hate me Game Freak?

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Then my M-Steelix won’t come to Showdown double pissed!

        • Still no fairy megas and no mega lopunny ;~;

  • It’s time to peddle Vivillons again!

  • Wes

    I just beat Blue in a 50 consecutive round of Super Doubles! I’m glad I got the new stamp before I used Bank, as that was a goal of mine! 😀

    • I’m just gonna import my old team of Typhlosion, Greninja and Metagross/Azumarill for BT Singles. I’ve really had it with this nonsense.

      • Wes

        It took ages (obviously), but I found that Xurkitree, Oranguru, Torkoal, and A-Marowak make such a great doubles team.

        • My doubles team that took out Blue was Tapu Koko, Gyarados, A-Marowak, Oranguru so we pretty much have similar ideas heh heh heh.

    • The PinSir

      Excellent job!

  • Awesome Waffles

    It’s a January miracle!
    Now to get back into Blue again…

  • 1,822 Battle Points… thanks Game Freak!

    • Ultron

      What, how did you get that many in one go?

      • My Pokebank was kinda stacked since last 1 1/2 years (30+ pages) and I’ve been accumulating BP since then heh heh heh.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Stored up from bank last gen I’d think.

        • Ultron

          Jeez..I didn’t think they stored like that

    • SpectralSeraph

      How do you transfer em?

      • Just go into Bank and there’ll be an option to claim the BP you stockpiled in Bank.

        Oh, and just to cover bases, there’s no way to transfer the BP from XYORAS to Bank or S&M.

  • Wes

    Do non-Alolan native Pokemon show Pokedex numbers now, or is that still a no-go?

  • Ithsme

    So since it’s only a “chance” to get HA, SOMEONE GO GET A NO GUARD MACHAMP.

  • The PinSir

    Funny thing is 3 years ago we finally got Pokebank so we could transfer Gen 5 Pokemon to Gen 6, and now we finally got the update for Pokebank to transfer Gen 6 Pokemon to Gen 7.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I was hoping the gift would be HA Alolan starters. Oh well.

    • The PinSir

      I really want Intimidate Incineroar so bad..

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Liquid voice Primarina too

  • The PinSir

    Also was not expecting Mewium Z to be distributed this way, was expecting it would be a movie event or something else.

  • All right, I imported my breedject Zoruas and a Scatterbug at least, next thing I’ll need is Bisharp and a couple of egg move peoples for my Fake Out Salandit and Assurance Alolan Grimer…

  • The Last Kurusu returns

    I want to destroy everything right now! I came back for a little bit!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      ‘sup?

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Kurusu unhappy…

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Why?

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Can’t find my AS version and forgot to get Bank today

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh, I store all my games in the same safe place so I never lose them. Though in fairness I also never use my 3DS away from home as I’m worried it’ll be broken or stolen.

    • Healing Fae

      ???

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        My DS is at my Grandma’s so after to wait till after school!

        And since you have re-download I still had my year subscription that will be taken away from me so I have to buy another Freakin’ 10 card spend the five and then have five wasted dollars!

        • Healing Fae

          I highly doubt you have to repay for it

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Knowing my luck though I will sadly

        • You can spend the 5 on next year’s subscription though…

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            I have only 62 cents left Yellow version and last subscription bled me dry

  • Ithsme

    Now I regret spending my eshop money last week. T_T

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Y that?

      • Ithsme

        Cause now I can’t buy bank. TBH I was expecting another free trial.

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          Tis like $5 man. You got that much? I’m sure you do lol (I assume without knowing your situation)

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Wait if you have money on bank still does it transfer or no?

          • TheWinterMonster6893

            What like your subscription for Bank is still going? Then yes of course. It’s the same service after all. Otherwise you’d just put money in your eshop account and Bank uses that.

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Oh less pissed, but still pissed that R.I.P. M-Steelix…

          • TheWinterMonster6893

            Wut……..lol

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Mega Steelix can’t be in Alola cause its Mega stone isn’t in Alola, and items don’t transfer

            My Steelix will never Mega evolve again

          • Ithsme

            I do, but my parents don’t want me to use their credit card and I need what I have left for BotW lol

          • TheWinterMonster6893

            Ah sorry dude

          • Ithsme

            No worries

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Do you need UB’s for Alola dex completion?

    • Yes. And Necrozma too.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Well that’s annoying.

        • Peddle beast ball mons for UB’s… that’s what I did. My favorite is Oranguru, but Jangmo-o and Gible works too.

          Well not sure about when Bank is out though.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I’ll try.

  • zess

    So can we trade mew from yellow ect.?

    • The PinSir

      According to Serebii, sadly not

      • zess

        Nooooooo 😣

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Oh right don’t forget #8 for today

        • The PinSir

          Shoot I forgot yesterday… I post 8th and 7th today then

  • CoolGlaceon

    I’m afraid to open my bank.. it’s overrun by breedject Froakies from 3 years ago. 15 pages worth of all those frogs.

    • If you have a spare Gen 6-7 game you can reset, you can dump them in that game and reset…

  • TheWinterMonster6893

    Ugh….Idk y, but I apparently didn’t bother catching Mewtwo in my Yellow and was super deep in Cerulean Cave without the proper stuff. so I had to slowly drag myself out of the cave and get my M Ball, get a bunch of repels, and an escape rope. Now I’m heading back to Mewtwo….Even with the repels it’s such a grind to get through…..lol ALL I WANT IS TO TRANSFER ALL MUH POKEMONS!! lol

  • PkmnTrainerKatie

    So does this update let you transfer items as well?

    • Sadly, no. 🙂

      • PkmnTrainerKatie

        Damn, that sucks. I REALLY don’t want to have to manually trade over all those other stones. :/

        • We can’t trade between gens anyway… but I guess it matters when the rest of the other Mega Stones are released and we want them all in one game. 🙁

          • Ultron

            No, they meant use pokebank to trade between sun and moon, which also isn’t possible :/

          • Well yeah I just did it one by one… all the apricorn balls, the master ball, the lucky egg, the soothe bell… 🙂

            It’ll be a pain when the other mega stones in “Stars” or a Sinnoh Remake or sequel or whatever…

          • Ultron

            I plan on doing rare candies as well and it will be bothersome. They need to do an item trade feature that’s super quick between games.

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Nope

  • When bank racks up a few Pokemiles, I will try transferring them on Sun to see if they turn into FC. (I just cashed in all the BP though so I have 0 of anything at this point.)

  • Breaking news: Serebii says… you can’t transfer Mew from Gen 1!

    • nooooo but I love my little mew ;-;

  • This musty missing chromosome looking mofo does NOT deserve KING RK9. King can do so Much better. And yes I AM PRESSED https://youtu.be/IxPURfiqX2I

    • Healing Fae

      can you not belittle people you don’t know here. It ain’t cute honey

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Wait what???

        • The Last Kurusu returns

          Who was… I’m just gonna say it not knowing gender

          Who was it belittling? I don’t get it?

      • I already said i’m pressed

        • Healing Fae

          what does that even mean?

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Maybe the same as Triggered who knows… or depressed maybe?

          • It means I’m angry/triggered

          • then just say angry

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            You said my Trigger Word

            SUPER TRIGGERED!!!!!!!! XD lol!

          • Healing Fae

            Ok but you don’t have to throw shade at the way someone looks

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Yeah maybe he thinks she is beautiful you don’t know

    • what are you even saying

    • Nickerton

      Wow that french guy is smart with the names. But the guy in the pink shirt seems like an idiot

  • The Last Kurusu returns

    Guys should I get Pokémon duel? I want to, but don’t know if its worth it

    • Ultron

      No

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Cause I do like Puzzles and Dragons (I have the Digimon version) but who knows maybe I will eventually

        • Ooh I like Puzzle and Dragons too. But I’m on the main game. 🙂

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            Yeah its pretty much a slightly more complicated one with Digimon instead of regular monsters (its a bitch to evolve them though)

    • If you liked the Pokemon Trading Figure Game, you’ll love it…

      Also it’s F2P you can always try it, time being the only lost resource.

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Never played it before but I’ve seen the figures before

  • It seems that all Gen 1 Pokemon will have their HA.

    So yeah RIP NO GUARD FISSURE MACHAMP.

    • The Last Kurusu returns

      I can’t Wait For my Shocky to come back to me another one of my treasures

      • Jolteon or Zapdos?

        • The Last Kurusu returns

          Sorry it was unrelated I meant my Dedenne sorry

    • Ithsme

      Called it, just saying “might” was too convenient.

      • I said “it seems” since 8 Pokemon I’ve copied over from Yellow to Bank so far have their HA. But who knows I could have extreme bad luck and a non HA Gen 1 Pokemon might exist…

    • The Last Kurusu returns

      R.I.P. competitive Porygon breeding

      • I have good Porygons in Gen 7 if you need any… 🙂

        • The Last Kurusu returns

          Yeah, but i’ll get one on my iwn but thanks for the offer

  • Healing Fae

    literally just dumped everything from ORAS into Pokemon Bank

  • lol I just spend 20 minutes trying to use Phara to get on the top of the training area only to find an invisible ceiling 😛

  • Ultron

    I fed my Volcarona only rainbow beans and that is how it will always be T-T

  • Healing Fae

    I had enough pokemon to fill 56 boxes… wtf

  • I wonder how much of my dex will be filled after I transfer my pokemon over

  • Serenotic

    Anyone know if RBY pokemon have anything special about them when transferred?

    • Guaranteed HA, at least 3 IVs are 31. Mew is banned.

      Application: I think randomly catching dittos in Gen 1 and banking them is the best way to get many good dittos of different natures.

      • Serenotic

        Mew is banned!? Nooooooo!

        • Well, so is Missingno… 🙂

  • MenacingCascoon

    Bank is out? Huzzah my prediction was correct 😊. And no old mega stones back? I bet they will have an event. Or maybe megas are just one of those things they have one generation then leave it. RIP.
    Despite all this bank hype. I’m not getting it. I am really kinda peeved old megas arent back. I can get it later I’m not missing anything. I’m going to be trying a new game series out with my money. Hopefully its good.
    My shiny babies will have to wait!!! 💜💜

  • SpectralSeraph

    Anybody have Bottle caps? I’m kinda desperate..

    • Who are you training?

    • Nickerton

      I’m midway through catching the UBs and have never heard of bottlecaps. When tf are they going to be mentioned?

      • Never.

      • They’re never mentioned in the story you just need to talk to the old guy in red in the Hau’oli mall in the postgame.

        • Nickerton

          What are they for exactly?

          • For hyper training.

            Normal “bottle caps” train one stat to 31. “Gold bottle caps” train all stats to 31. Note that these stats don’t pass in breeding.

        • SpectralSeraph

          Got any spare ones?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Oh…

    • zess

      I have two I think but I can’t trade until I’m finished with this chain🙁

  • How can I get the updates?

    • Search the e-shop for Bank, then once at the product page go to Update.

      For Transporter, just start up the new Bank and there’s an option to get it.

    • but like, really, it isnt updating

  • EarthenWarrior

    So THIS is where everyone went…..

    • zess

      • EarthenWarrior

        I was playing WW HD
        Well my Showdown career is over…now they’re letting everything back into OU along with all the new annoyances

    • The Last Kurusu returns

  • DucoLamia

    Wait…so this isn’t a joke! YES!!

  • The Last Kurusu returns

    Shine Bug, Shocky, Swampy, Magnezone, Steelix, and all my other friends come back to me kids!

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well 2,273 Battlepoints

    • The Last Kurusu returns

      Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!? How?

      • We both accumulated BP for a long time by having lots of mons in the bank.

        • Aww I don’t have any pokemon in the bank >.<

          • 🙁

            But yeah Bank accumulates BP or miles over time based on how much stuff you have inside.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Big Jew Savings

    • DucoLamia

      Lucky! I only have 119. More than enough for me tho.

    • temporario23

      So, the Battlepoints that I’ve been saving will still be there after downloading the update?

      • Pretty much!

        • temporario23

          Awesome. I suppose the Pokémon I had in Bank are safe too, right? GF wouldn’t screw that up, I think.

          • Yeah I checked it and my entire library was still there and I have 40 days remaining in my subscription.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well time to check the Red team

  • DucoLamia
  • EarthenWarrior

    How do I transfer red Pokemon?

    • Update poké transporter and use that.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Real progressive, no auto update status
    Having to go all the way to eShop like an animal

    • how do you access the updates

      • Search the eshop for “bank”, go to the Pokemon Bank product page and there’ll be a update button.

        • Ok cool thanks, do I have to update SuMo too?

          • There doesn’t seem to be a SuMo update right now, I’m just online trading out some spare Zoruas…

  • I’m actually kinda sad I have to leave my Mew behind again. I dropped it from my team because I needed more type coverage from Articuno but uhg

  • Turrets EastGövnah
    • zess

      The dex updates as well right?

      • Turrets EastGövnah

        It didn’t for me

      • Ultron

        No, unfortunately. No new pokedex entries

        • zess

          So we can’t even view them in the dex at all…. so basically no national dex?

          • Ultron

            Correct…idk about the bank dex

          • zess

            That sucks but oh well…

    • The Last Kurusu returns

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright people remember keep your Red Blue Yellow teams the way they are, we should do that Retro Royal tomorrow

    Got it?

  • The Last Kurusu returns

    Alright now I’m going to bed for good see ya tomorrow I’ll get Shocky in to Moon and show the world!!!

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well….I guess I’ll never play Red ever again…..unless I delete the file……

  • I found the National Dex inside the bank! (Press Y while logged in.)

  • temporario23

    Man, I’m just sad that we can’t get the other Mega stones somehow. I honestly thought they would do something like, if we transfered a pokémon that can mega evolve to Sun/Moon, bank would send its Mega stone through Mystery Gift. It’s a shame.

  • Healing Fae

    I was hoping to get some BP from using bank… she gave me 5BP… what am I supposed to do with that!?!?! I transferred like 56 boxes into it

    • Well, you have to keep the Pokemon in the bank for a long time to amass BP…

      • Healing Fae

        I’ve had 10 boxes full since november in there…

        • November 🙂

          I had 30+ boxes for more than 1 1/2 years to get my 1800…

          • Healing Fae

            yeah but I still should have gotten more than 5BP, there have been times in ORAS that she had given me like 30 for checking in, but oh well

  • Lucky I still have money left over from when I bought Paper Mario

  • EarthenWarrior

    Omfg the transfer system plus Red’s shitty boxes is nightmarish

  • !!!!!!! I can replay ORAS now! 😀

    • Healing Fae

      Oras was honestly fantastic, I’d love to go back in and use a team with ambipom and purugly

    • But… the items… the ability to catch Gen 6 Pokemon in balls you like…

      • I can still do that in Y and my brother’s copy

  • omg I have so many pokemon from Soul Silver and BW/B2W2

  • EarthenWarrior

    Oh you gotta be freaking kidding me
    Out of my entire team

    The lone female is my Rhydon…..

    Pokebank you suck

    • One fabulous Rhydon

      • EarthenWarrior

        Rhonda…

  • There is one good reason to keep an RBY save file around… quick 3IV+ dittos in random natures…

  • EarthenWarrior

    Yo how do I get my Battle Points mystery gift ain’t working

    • Ultron

      They’re automatically sent to the guy in the pokecenter

      • EarthenWarrior

        That greedy BASTARD!

        • Get ’em!

          • EarthenWarrior

            *Beats him up violently and excessively*
            Ahh nothing like the smell of aired out kidneys

    • It’s with the delivery guy in Pokemon centers.

    • Did you accept them in a gen 6 game?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I’m going to bed
    Seriously nobody update their RBY teams

  • SpectralSeraph

    Please console me.. I decided to download dual, I’m personally liking it…. I got destroyed by a bidoof….

    • You only started… that’s ok… you’ll get better mons later… 🙂

      • SpectralSeraph

        I have decent mons… I got a Sliggoo…. but
        This Bidoof showed no mercy though. it was not ok

        • I think that’s their idea of encouragement, beat new players up using a meme…

          • SpectralSeraph

            I’m scared….

    • The singular Kuppo™

      Never underestimate a TM slave….. Ever

      • SpectralSeraph

        It was too strong…

        • The singular Kuppo™

          Also, how good is the game?

  • Ok I’m about to transfer my ORAS Pokemon over so here os my pokedex now

    Alola Pokedex 260/282
    Melemele 120/120
    Akala Pokedex 129/130
    Ulaula Pokedex 116/30
    Poni Pokedex 79/96

    • Your Alola Pokedex should be out of 301 though… didja pick up the free Magearna yet?

      • Yeah I did. Maybe I missed A couple UBs and Necrozma?

        • I guess that’s what should be missing…

    • Ultron

      I have everything except cosmoem, and the moon UB’s.

    • temporario23

      I completed the Alola Pokedex before Bank, pretty much thanks to the GTS.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well that was….impulsive
    I bought every Mega Stone in the Battle Tree

    • temporario23

      That was my plan when I started saving points in Bank. Still don’t have enough, I’m missing ~200 BPs.

  • My favorite baby is finally in Alola! I’m going to spend some time organizing my Pokemon. I have so many and I still have to transfer the ones from my DS games plus Red version

    .0.

    • Deerlia

      Wow, long time going, eh?
      Good for you, that Lopunny looks dazzling~

  • Ultron

    @Earthen, you hear that Season 4 of race to the edge is coming next month?

    • EarthenWarrior

      WHATAAHAHAHT HOW DID I MISS THAT OMFG

      • Ultron

        Yep! On the 17th.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Omgomgomg
        I really hope they add more Dragons
        But for now the Eruptadon!!!!!

        Is it wrong that I know nearly every dragon by heart…

        • Ultron

          Perhaps. Have you seen trollhunters?

  • Gamer Dragon07

    YEEEEEEESSSS finally,now the big task of transporting all those pokemon I’ve been storing up in the box just for Pokemon Moon

  • I played Alpha Sapphire again to catch and transfer some egg moves Pokemon that I needed.

    The wild battles feel so smooth in terms of framerate compared to Sun. 🙂

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      That’s because the 3DS can’t handle SuMo very well. The games are really pushing it to it’s limits. Hence the reason ti takes so long to boot up on regular 3DS’. I honestly think it’s a good thing that Pokemon seems to be moving to the Switch so early on. lol

  • Transferred all legendaries/mythics and non-evolving Pokemon into Sun. Kind of sad the only ones viewable in the Pokedex are Alola only, unless they will be when we complete it? If not then I’ll only transfer over the necessary evolving Pokemon into Sun, and easily speed level the rest in AS for the Bank Dex.

  • TheWinterMonster6893

    The simplicity of only having a small amount of Pokemon at my disposal is really making me appreciate Pre-bank gen 7 lol. Now I have so many Pokemon to catalog and organize……For a second I thought some how I lost nearly a whole box of Shiny Pokemon. I found them, but it was a scare lol Now I only have to breed a Goodra and Ditto to get a Goomy and I’ll be able to get muh Shiny Charm finally once again. After that it should be more or less smooth sailing. Over the next year I’ll also continue to fill out my Living dex. That way when Stars comes out I won’t have to catch every god damn Pokemon ever again. From that point on I’ll only have to catch the brand new ones. Man that’s the dream…….hahaha

  • The singular Kuppo™

    Now I deeply regret loosing my copy of Omega Ruby :’|

  • Oooookay time for bed. I sorted all of my Normal, Grass, Fire, Water, Electric, Bug, Rock and Ground types but I’m sleepy. Still gotta transfer from my DS Pokemon games and from Red version

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    *looks at Blue team*

    Chlorophyll Venusaur with Solar Beam
    Drought Ninetales

    >:)

    • EarthenWarrior

      Just means you have to sacrifice mega evolving to keep the speed
      And even then the sun will boost opposing fire moves

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        It’s still a good in game strat bro

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    Is the Mewnium once per game or one per bank?

    • I’ll find out shortly if I get a second one on my Moon…

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I didnt get one on Sun and I already used both versions with Bank today

        • Can confirm, no second Mewnium.

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            I am deceased I wanted to start again and do a Rowlet run in a while

      • SpectralSeraph

        Technically couldn’t you give it to multiple mons and just trade one to another game?

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Received 63 BP via Bank so picked up myself a Destiny Knot 😀

  • My Transporter was updated by Bank isn’t, it won’t let me use it with Sun and Moon, whats going on

    • You have to update Bank manually by going to Bank’s product page in the eshop. (Put “bank” as search string.)

      • I tried that

        • And… did it download successfully? Only reason I can see it doesn’t work.

          Transporter is only for RBY and BW1/2, BTW.

          • There was no option, maybe my 3DS is just lagging or something I’ll try later

          • Yes I know what to do it just wasn’t letting me

  • The Last Kurusu returns

    Please tell me for Bank if you get the new Bank do all the Pokémon in the Bank have to be put back into your game then retransfer them into the bank

    • Wes

      You can go ahead and download! All that trouble isn’t necessary, thankfully.

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        I’m gonna keep old bank just as a safety net JIC

  • Now we can answer the age old question, “Does a Pokemon that can evolve into an Alolan form that isn’t from Alola, evolve into it’s original form?”
    For example, if I evolve a Pikachu from Gen 1, 3-6, in alola, will it be a regular Raichu or an Alolan Raichu?
    I’m gonna guess, Alolan Raichu, as it will evolve in Alola. But could be surprised.

    • EarthenWarrior

      It would be so blaitently un-logical by all means of human conception
      I mean unless Alola has some kinda radioactive atmosphere that causes evolution to go into hyper drive by all means non-Alola native Pokemon should evolve regularly in Alola,

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        Gameplay and story mechanics font always perfectly marry, it’s true for nearly any game e

        • EarthenWarrior

          Story got nothing on this
          This is straight up biology

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            The biology is part of the story of Pokémon

          • EarthenWarrior

            T_T I’m just saying that if you bring the a Cubone from the Kanto Region and evolved it into a Marowak
            Technically it should be a Ground type

      • Turns out, according to what other people have said, is that a Pikachu from outside of Alola still becomes Alolan Raichu in Alola, which, I agree is silly, but hey means if there is a Gen 4 remake an Alolan pikachu will become regular raichu there.

        Now for the next question, does breeding a ground sandshrew with a ground sandshrew become a ground sandshrew by breeding, I’d say yes, but I’veh eard othrwise I dunno whats true or what isn’t

        • EarthenWarrior

          This is why I think Sun and Moon is their slip up point, just doing whatever for whatever reasons

          My brother said I should apply to be Gamefreak’s lifeguard
          [Cut away]
          *In the boardroom meeting*
          Hmmm maybe for next gen we should make Raichu have a psychic form
          *agreeing clamor*
          But how would that be, cross breeding, mutations?
          Phhhhh naw we’ll just say pancakes and everyone will ignore it
          *Blows whistle*
          *Me sitting in a lifeguard tower*
          “Alright then bring it in, too far out, too far *whistle blows*

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Non-Alolans evolve into Alolans if only their final evolution is an Alolan

      So Kantonian Raichu, Marowak and Exeggutor are transfer only

  • EarthenWarrior

    So I’m having some dilemmas
    I am fighting the urge to transfer stuff to Sun out of some kinda mental hold, I did so much crap in X and that was my prime, I learned how to breed and EV train the right way and done so much freaking crap, I even have in game time say 999.59′ hours

    But if I want to transfer my Earthen Warriors I gotta send my new ones to Oras for MT…. And even then I had issues transferring (because I really didn’t like Oras) but since now the player avatar is custom it kinda lightens the blow

    Anyone else have a similar situation
    Also before any of that hyper boost them to 100 (I still have like thousands of rare candy from miles)

    • SpectralSeraph

      Just level them and transfer

  • zess

    So I accidentally got locked out of bank🙁does anyone know how long a “short while” is?

  • zess

    9000+ BP probably gone😢

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Not sure who said Kommo-o is a poor Pseudo but a Modest Autotomize setup is actually pretty good imo.
    Autotomize
    Clanging Scales
    Focus Blast
    Flash Cannon

  • Wes

    I transferred all my Ghosts so I can start IV breeding them. I still need to transfer my shinies and my first Charizard (from LG). 🙂

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    Strength Sap is bae

    • EarthenWarrior

      Too bad the only thing that can use it is frail slow and hella ugly, one super effective blow and its down or solid hit

      • SpectralSeraph

        Sorta like Rhyperior vs any water or grass type

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        I thought you said all Fairy types were cutesy

        And I’m referring to in game so like all these problems are non existent lol

        • EarthenWarrior

          Cute is ugly

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            Difference being Shiinotic is intentionally unsettling whereas ‘cute is ugly’ is subjective

      • When did you start judging anything by beauty… I mean, have you seen Rhyperior…

    • The singular Küppo™

      It’s too strong for me

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    Guys what game do I play next

    -White with Simisage as my ‘starter’

    -Blue with Blastoise as my starter

    -Sun with Decidueye with my starter (will only do this one if people recommend it enough becuase I want a break from SuMo, if this options picked ill so Bravely Default and then come back with it)

    • One vote for “Blue with Blastoise”

    • The singular Küppo™

      I vote for “White with Simisage”

    • SpectralSeraph

      Sun with Wimpod as your starter , I did it :3

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        Not an option :p

        • SpectralSeraph

          I made it work

    • White version but dump simisage. Use Lilligant or Whimsicott instead

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Whats the best looking ball animation for Decidueye? I plan to breed new Rowlet’s

    • The singular Küppo™

      For me atleast, Dusk ball fits more

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      I’d say nearly every green ball (so mostly nest) would do fine, but dusk helps accentuate the fact its a ghost (which imo the design doesn’t do that well)

      Isn’t it exclusive to Poké ball tho

      • SpectralSeraph

        Nest, Dusk, and one more I’m forgetting

        • Cherish would look awesome on it, but we can’t make mons inherit Cherish Ball…

    • Dusk, but how are you gonna get them into dusk balls (or any other balls) legally?

      • zess

        I think if you breed it with a pokemon that has a dusk ball there’s a chance the child can inherite either of the parents pokeballs.

        • Only if it’s the same Pokémon though

          • zess

            Oh I thought it worked as long as there on the same egg group

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Breed it?

        • I don’t think so, only the same species can cause ball inheritance, if I’m right.

  • zess

    Pokedex at 89%! Shiny charm here I come!

    • Just a little more*, you can do it..!

      * unless it’s all UBs, Tapus and Necrozma remaining, then it’ll take a while

      • zess

        It’s just sun UB’S and a few Alola and Alolan pokemon and base evo’s

  • I’m playing X and AS right now to import things I need for egg moves… I’m also training a Breloom in AS for use in SOS chaining in Sun.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Breloom is a fucking monster

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        *Conditional monster, if it has a weakness to whatever its fighting it goes from Breloom to soup

        • EarthenWarrior

          Spore Stab technician Bullet seed and Mach punch
          which lets it get a turn or 3 for Swords Dance (granted i run Rock Tomb to help with its below average speed but it hasn’t failed me yet), and don’t forget if you sash it it pretty much guarantees the spore

          Preloon is death for those unprepared

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            Not talking about comp where people will maximise their Breloom lol I was talking about in game

          • EarthenWarrior

            then why bother….living

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            Becuase the plan is to get a job and then get a husband and just have a generally good life

    • Healing Fae

      breloom is my second favourite fighting type

  • Alyssa Dunn
    • EarthenWarrior

      • Alyssa Dunn

        really? i just wanted to put a picture of flapjack in a wooper suit.

    • The singular Küppo™

      Man…. I used to watch the hell out of this show when I was younger …… Good memories :3

      • Alyssa Dunn

        yeah here too I actually liked this show, chowder, and hihipuffyamiyumi

      • zess

        Yea I loved flap jack. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh the good old days 😌

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Wooper is best Pokémon

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    When you just need to get your pre-bank Sun Pokémon back from your friend and then you’ve completed your live Dex so far

  • Earthbound’s soundtrack is so good ^.^

    I’m in an Earthbound mood right now

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Heard nothing but praise for it

    • The singular Küppo™

      Indeed it is, this song is stuck in my head:

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=h66gq40szjk

      • No one ever talks about how good the song when you name the characters is. It starts weird but gets so good

        • The singular Küppo™

          Yep, I also found it quite good ^^

  • Let’s have a little fun survey: If you need a Hidden Ability Pokemon, which of these would you rather do?

    > Dexnav in a cave or on the water!
    > Find one in a horde!
    > SOS chain!

    (Let’s assume the easiest ones don’t exist: Dexnav in grass or running around in Friend Safari…)

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      SOS Chain because knocking out one spare Pokémon is more desirable than knocking our four, and as well as this moving dexnav is so easy to screw up

    • zess

      Ive found the SOS chain to be the easiest and most reliable so I’ll go with that

  • For people Poketransporting from RBY, you can control the nature of your exported Pokemon based on the last two digits of the experience points.

    Here’s a handy conversion table: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C2_tQ5QWEAE_5y5.jpg

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      That’s why all my legendaries had Hardy 😮

  • Planned out my Alpha Sapphire team. After I finish Paper Mario I’m going to start

    Typhlosion (don’t like Blaziken much and I need a fire type)
    Milotic
    Roserade
    Pikachu (Pop Star)
    Aggron
    Altaria

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Always hate how you can’t transfer Pikachu on bank, it’d bug me so much because I’ve kept all my teams since bank

      • Alyssa Dunn

        why can’t you put yellow version pikachu in there? is it because it likes the player character SO much that putting it in pokemon bank would make it sad or something

    • Actually… swap Aggron with Gallade. I’ve always used Gardevoir and I wanna try Gallade

      • The singular Küppo™

        *Roserade and Gallade in one team*

        Instant approval

        • SpectralSeraph

          Wally

          • The singular Küppo™

            *Roserade, Gallade and Magnezone in one team*

            Approval intensifies greatly

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Also Roserade is rosebae

    • EarthenWarrior

      where are ya? i hope you’re not rushing

      • I’m right after obtaining the Flower area Star Spirit. I’m almost done and I’m loving every minute of it

        • EarthenWarrior

          Oooooo I thought you where up to the last area….ok
          The boss is tricky

          • The final boss or the next boss? Isn’t it a snow area next?

          • EarthenWarrior

            did you fight Huff N Puff?

          • Yep

  • Devon Wells

    So I’m kind of having an OCD overload right now…lol
    I recently installed a custom firmware for my New Nintendo 3DS so that I can use NTR, which if you guys don’t know, is a tool that lets you debug, stream your 3DS to a computer, and use cheats in games.
    I received Pokemon X the day it was released, and I transfered all of my beloved Pokemon from the original games (Pearl, Platinum, Diamond, BW B2W2, etc), and one day, I got in trouble and my Dad made me smash my 3DS because I disobeyed his rule of internet usage (pretty strict and unruly, I know, but it taught me a lesson to stop being so sneaky).
    I lost every pokemon, including my X version that was in the system when it got smashed. SO I was devestated. But soon after, my Dad bought me a new one right before I got Omega Ruby, and I got a digital version of X as well.
    Ever since then, I got about half-way through X and completely beat Omega Ruby. I transfered all my Pokemon from Omega Ruby before I used a Powersave and ruined the fun in that.
    I luckily don’t have a physical copy of X so I can’t cheat and ruin the fun in that, but now having NTR is very tempting.
    I made a plan today, after seeing the update for Bank, that I’m going to finish X and only catch gen 6 and gen 2 Pokemon, then I’m going to complete Omega Ruby and get all Gen 3 Pokemon, then I’m going to fully complete Red/Blue/Yellow and transfer them all so that I have a complete list of fully legitimate Pokemon and a full Pokedex!
    I recently used NTR on Moon but had a corrupted save error so I was forced to go back before I used the cheats. So now, I used a few cheats for items but after thinking it over….I’m going to remove those items. From then I’m going to catch the rest of gen 7 Pokemon and finally have a complete, legitimate version of Moon that is 100%.
    Thanks for listening to my story….lol.

    • Alyssa Dunn

      wow that’s some horrible stuff that you had to go through with the 3ds smashing and restricted internet privliges 🙁

      • Devon Wells

        It taught me a lesson, I’ll tell you that. But it also taught me to appreciate what I have so it’s all good. Now I’m not an immature kid who cries about a stupid game and if I lose everything again, I can be chill with it. I mean I was 15 and cried for 3 days about it.
        I mean what kind of 15 year old guy is gonna be popular and get all these girls if he cries about a materialistic game lmao
        I’m 17 now and I’m just fine.

        • Alyssa Dunn

          alright but why was your internet privliges restricted by the way?

          • Devon Wells

            Being a guy….alone with internet. Catch my drift.

          • TheNintendoChip

            Sounds similar to what my parents did with me. There wasn’t any smashing or anything, but still strict internet monitoring.

    • The PinSir

      That really sucks, especially the 3DS smashing part.

    • Healing Fae

      What kind of f*cked up person makes someone smash an expensive piece of hardware? There is nothing in this world that makes me angrier, thats not how you solve a problem.

    • Your dad sounds abusive.

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    Tbh I’m really hoping for a switch spin off starring Lillie on her journey in Kanto

    • I’d rather a post game in Kanto in Stars where you join Lillie and fight gyms and stuff

  • Is the Mewnium Z distributed only to one of your games? Because it was in my Sun but not in Moon. What if I trade a mew with the mewnium attached to Moon? Will I have the item in moon then?

    • Ultron

      No, you can’t trade holding a z stone.

      • Healing Fae

        what really??? I put mine in the wrong game then shit

        • Ultron

          That sucks!

  • Ben

    When I started breeding Pokémon for the first time in X/Y, I knew I wanted to breed a perfect Sudowoodo, as that’s my favorite Pokémon. Since then, Jimbo has travelled to every game collecting as many ribbons as he can 🙂 Next up: Battle Royal!

    • EarthenWarrior

      I care not for ribbons
      All i needed was the absolute perfect Rhyperior
      6IVs
      Solid Rock
      Male
      in my favorite Pokeball: Safari Ball
      with Metal Burst
      Truly the image of perfection

    • MenacingCascoon

      I am envious of people who’ve done this. It’s so cool and so honorable, and takes so much effort.

      • Ben

        He didn’t win the Effort Ribbon for nothing 😉 That’s one of the reasons I’m most looking forward to Sinnoh remakes: more contest ribbons!

  • CoolGlaceon

    I guess they’re really gonna act like the Mega Stones that are unavailable in SuMo don’t exist at all huh

    • temporario23

      Indeed. Like, there’s got to be a second pair of games coming to the 3DS (either Sun/Moon sequels or DP remakes) and they’re saving them for those. That’s the only thing that explains this.

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    Damn i forgot Nidoran M is rare in Blue

    Wish me luck

  • Hentai Mommy

    Would anyone be down for a 6v6 single battle? I have a few teams I want to test out

  • I love that you can transfer Pokémon from ORAS to SUMO and back

    • Alyssa Dunn

      really you can DO that?

      • I’m pretty sure

        • temporario23

          You can’t. Once they’ve been in SuMO, they can’t go back to Gen 6.

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Do you know what happens if your Pokémon has a Gen 7 move?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Violent decapitation

        • Hentai Mommy

          Hey earthen do you do battles?

          • EarthenWarrior

            My physical team is’t fully trained
            is showdown ok?

          • Hentai Mommy

            Oh I don’t use showdown at all, just use my physical game ): it’s ok maybe another time.

      • It probably won’t transfer unless it’s legal in Gen 6

    • Ultron

      Oh that’s good to know. My Sapphire feels so empty…So could I IV breed a pokemon in S/M and then transfer it back to Hoenn provided it’s legal and everything?

    After knowing how we can get the nature we want for the transfered pokémon from the VC RBY releases, I’m actually considering buying one of them.
    I’m thinking about buying Yellow (since it’s not monochromatic). One of the Pokémon I was considering using though is Vulpix, which is only obtainable in the Game Corner. But if I go with Blue, then Nidoran M will be more difficult to find.
    I’m still a bit hesitant in buying one of games though simply because they’re so outdated and really slow compared to the newest games, which will probably leave me frustrated as I play (I’m not very patient). I also don’t suffer from Nostalgia since I never actually played the Gen 1 games when they came out as a kid, so there’s not even that to motivate me.
    The biggest appeal to me, honestly, is just the fact that I would be able to train a few pokémon that will have their hidden ability after transfering (hence why I mentioned Vulpix and Nidoran M, as their hidden abilities are better), have a unique marker (allowing me to have weird stuff like a Gen 1 Politoed or Alolan Exeggutor after transfering and evolving), and also the fact they they will come from their native region.

  • SpectralSeraph

    I got so many fanmon designs but I dunno which ones to actually work on next…
    That and I have like five spaces open for fire, ice, dark, steel, and ground types with no idea WHAT to design

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    I’m bored so question time

    Any odd misc Pokémon facts about you?

    Amongst all the teams I’ve saved in bank,
    I’ve used all Eeveelutions

  • Healing Fae

    I kind of want to get pokemon yellow just so I can have some pokemon with the game boy marking

  • SpectralSeraph

    Ahaha… I think I’m doing a Dark/Steel Desparado Robot… this is going to be fun

    • The Last Kurusu returns

      😀

    • The singular Küppo™

      What does desparado means?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Western vigilante i think

      • SpectralSeraph

        Essentially , kinda like a cowboy … but not quite
        Also I can use the name Desparobo :3

        • EarthenWarrior

          i hate Robot Pokemon…….how is this even a pokemon them?

          • SpectralSeraph

            How is porygon a Pokémon? Or any of the porys

          • The singular Küppo™

            How is Golurk also a Pokemon?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Golurk can just rely on the fact it’s a ghost

            How is Vanillish a functioning species?

          • The singular Küppo™

            Because is ice to have a sentient Ice cone as a mon

          • EarthenWarrior

            This Pokémon formed from icicles bathed in energy from the morning sun. It sleeps buried in snow.

          • EarthenWarrior

            they said advanced scientific research and its made entirely out of code …Porygon is just a really grey area of research since the only data comes from what absolutely little screen time any have gotten or the Pokedexs

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            Magearna
            Golett
            Golurk

            Hate it or not there’s presedence for them

          • EarthenWarrior

            Magearna is technically the only man made robot Pokemon
            but Golett and Golurk aren’t exactly robots but constructs though the same physics apply,

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            They’re based on robots, regardless of what story bullshit ‘justifies’ them

          • EarthenWarrior

            based on robots is different than actually being a robot

            if he said its a pokemon that looked like a robot it be a different story, but if it is then i want details

        • The singular Küppo™

          Love the name

          • SpectralSeraph

            Thanks!

          • The singular Küppo™

            YW!

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    Holy Fudge grinding is so boring kids these days have it so good

    • EarthenWarrior

      grinding in whut

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        Pokemon

        Its annoying and monotonous

        • EarthenWarrior

          Details buttmunch

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            They’re all virtually the same for grinding, and ‘nowadays’ makes it obvious it isn’t modern

            Maybe if you used context you wouldn’t be so clueless

          • EarthenWarrior

            like what are you grinding, pokemon, game, details you snot

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            Why the hell do you care, it doesn’t effect you in the slightest

            And since you asked so nicely… No.

          • EarthenWarrior

            call it a common curiosity,

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            Then try having some common sense and give some common courtesy instead of being as much as an irritant as the common cold

          • EarthenWarrior

            such a tude

    • The singular Küppo™

      As a person who likes to play old school RPGs… I totally understand you

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        At least grinding in other games gets you stuff like money for sweet clothes and stuff

        Pokémon grinding doesn’t feel rewarding at all, feels like the devs should’ve balanced the game better

        • The singular Küppo™

          In gen 6 they realised how stupid grinding is in Pokemon…. So they added the exp share :v

    Yep it’s Dedenne the cutest little fella out there he’s got access to for a Pikaclone a variety of moves including, but not limited to Play Rough, Thunderbolt, Aerial Ace, Dig, and more. It since it was revealed was loved by me knowing a mix of my fourth and fifth types and some cute features makes it a good team member. Also it was my 8th lvl.100 we now are getting to the Top 5 so hold on!

    Hint for 5:A Johto pokemon that is known for being pretty cliché for Johto Pokémon.

    • EarthenWarrior

      • The singular Küppo™

        God, I love this show so much

    • The singular Küppo™

      Emolga is the best pikaclone tho

        • SpectralSeraph

          Earthen opinion is so right here it’s unbelievable

          • The singular Küppo™

            The planets have been aligned or something like that……..,………….
            Also, Emolga is BETTER >_>

          • SpectralSeraph

            Wrong af
            Thought Emolga is super cute though

          • EarthenWarrior

            its the only one of the electrified roadkill i stomach, but i also hate that it stole the typing of my electrical rodent Hyjakk

            Hyjakk
            Mouse Pkm
            Electric/Steel
            Static/cheek Pouch
            Hyjakk is a small grayish white rodent pokemon in a squarish ovoid shape, it has large square ears and a long coiled tail with a pom pom on the back, it has crooked whiskers, it has a a pair of very sharp incisors and white cheeks
            “hyjakk wander into buildings in search for electricity, they chew through wires of machines to drain electicity thus earning them status as pests”

            Its based on a computer mouse and the concept of rats chewing wires

      • Ultron

        *Worst

      Wait, I thought the clue was that it shares it’s typing with another Gen 6 Pokémon….

      • The Last Kurusu returns

        Oh I meant Gen7 crap!

        • Chaos

          Booo…I demand a recount.

    Has Pokemon ever do a Venus flytrap before….
    Carnivine nvm….

    But who says we can’t have one based on violent man eater

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    So after me and my friend bank tomorrow (he had all my Pokémon because bank wasn’t out when I reset) I’ll have all fully evolved Alola and Alolan Pokémon ready for my live Dex :3

    Just need Marshadow and those event Pikachu and I’ll of filled all the blanks I’ve left in my boxes (besides Eternal Floette, who’s space is closed becuase its probs never happening)

    • Has anyone tried hacking one into gen 6 then transferring it?

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        Late, but apparently it is in the code for SuMo

  • New hope for Stars: Pokémon Bank integration so you can access bank directly from the PC

    • Ithsme

      I just had a thought. Bank is online, so what if you need to buy both bank and Nintendo online service to use it? xD

  • Alyssa Dunn
  • Monkeyfuzz

    Manipulate transfer from RBY natures https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C2_tQ5QWEAE_5y5.jpg

    • Monkeyfuzz

      To change the nature to your desired one, go to Route 1 and battle Level 3 Pidgey/Rattata. (No Exp. All)

      Lv3 Rattata gives 24 exp, which makes the nature move up one row in the table;
      Lv3 Pidgey gives 23 exp, which makes the nature move up two rows in the table.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    -Psychic
    -Ice Beam

    <3 <3 <3

    • Ultron

      But why would you use Primarina when you could just have Azumarill or Tapu Fini..

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Dont have Azumarill in either game and never use legendaries

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Do you know you can get Marill on Island Scan?

      • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

        Azumarill is physical and Fini can’t use Scald and has worse Sp. Attack

        All three have different, overlapping niches

        • Ultron

          It was just a joke xP but I agree

      • PikaChan

        could be a favorite pokemon of theirs o:

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Have you considered Energy Ball to beat out other Primarinas and bulky waters? Unless this is for Tree or just in game in which case this moveset is great

    The fever, the coughing and the headaches

    • The Last Kurusu returns

      Ok I can now with my Audino

  • Ithsme

    Well I had a great day today. Woke up to the wonderful sound of my family fighting, got to school and recieved the great news that I failed a geometry quiz, AND that I have another one tomorrow. I let down one of my few friends big time, and I feel horrible about it, so that was just great. My dad is calling me a “stupid slacker” because, despite my straight As so far in mostly advanced classes, I don’t want to take summer school. Now he’s threatening to take me out of school because I “don’t care about what’s really important” (which is apparently summer PE courses).

    Sorry, I know it’s off topic but this day sucked so I needed to rant. I’ll try to be less negative now. >.<

  • temporario23

    lol. So, apparently, if you transfer a Gen 1 poke and evolve it into something from other gen (say Poliwhirl -> Politoed), it becomes illegal lol. From what I read, it can’t be traded online.
    What I don’t know (and, if someone does, tell me) is if you can still trade those through wireless trade and/or pass them through bank. I remember reading somewhere that we can trade anything through wireless, so that shouldn’t be problem for people with access to two consoles (like me).
    I’m actually kinda worried cause I evolved a Gen V eevee into Sylveon and it seems those get blocked as well. GF should revise their coding big time.

    • noooo

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      That’s strange, I don’t believe this was an issue with any prior generation, including Gen VI?

      Wouldn’t be surprised if it was intentional mind you >_>

      • temporario23

        Indeed, it wasn’t. I’m not sure, but I think I’ve transfered that Sylveon between games with Bank before this update. It may be the coding of this update. I’ve seen people also reporting they can’t use the recent Shiny Xerneas/Yveltal events online.
        But if it’s intentional, it’s stupid from their part. It’s something that can happen legitimately (evolving an old pokémon into something introduced later), so they shouldn’t make a problem out of it.

  • Ok omg so close to finishing my dex

    Gastrodon, Dhelmise, Jangmo-o line, Tapu Fini, Cosmog Line (Sun), Necrozma, Sun exclusive UBs, Porygon2, Turtonator

    Help would be very much appreciated

    • Reece

      You can catch Dhelmise easily, as well as Gastrodon & Jangmo-o (and Fini but it’s a bit of a pain in the ass cause of Terrain & Aqua Ring) since they’re all on the same island
      For Turtonator, just catch another Drampa & trade that, and the same for the UBs, just trade em for their counterparts.
      Half ya list easily done!
      The hard part is getting the Cosmog line if you want it in a living dex

      • I just dont want to catch any legendaries because I want to save them for competitive

        • Reece

          Get Syncronize Abra farming then haha, only took me about 1:30 hours of nonstop breeding to get all 30 natures!

          • Lol no I know but I just want to wait until I have a set in mind

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Gastrodon can be found in Poni Wilds

      • Yeah I just caught him while catching Exeggute and leveling up Vanillish

    • Ultron

      I think I may have some sun UB’s to give

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Of course it’s green :33

      • I’m so jealous

      • temporario23

        Now imagine it had zygarde complete engraved instead of xerneas & yveltal.

        • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

          Z confirm

    • SpectralSeraph

      HOW

  • The PinSir

    So is it not possible to transfer Cosplay Pikachu? I’m using PokeBank right now and apparently I can’t place Cosplay Pikachu because its a special Pokemon.

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      It hasn’t been possible to put it in bank since 2014 :p

      • The PinSir

        Sigh, I really need to start paying attention to that type of stuff often

        Anyway that sucks, I used a Cosplay Pikachu as one of my primary OR members so I won’t be able to bring my full team over to Sun

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Love all of them except from Dawn and Hilda, they’re all so creative (even the ones I don’t like)

      • I feel like the Hilda would look better with shorter hair even if it isnt totally accurate

        • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

          It’s also the socks that ruin it for me tbh

    • Just made my character into Hilda. Changed the hat and socks though 😛

    • Ultron

      That Hilda one sucks…love the Green, May, and Serena ones

      • yeah the more I look at it the more i dislike it. I may switch to Serena just with another hair color

        • Ultron

          Do the green oneeeee

          • oooh thats pretty, I like Serena too though

  • Why did I organize all of my bank Pokemon by type? Now idk what I need in my in-game PC

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      Living Dex Advantage #802 – This shit isn’t a problem

      Disadvantage #151 – Forms and cross Gen evos are stressful

      • I feel like maybe I should keep legendaries, pokemon from previous teams, and any duplicated I have? As well as utility and competitive mons?

        • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

          I’d keep everything, never know when it comes in handy

          But defo separate teams, utilities and comps

          • I have too many pokemon to keep in my PC. Not to mention all of the Red version mons I have to transfer over

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            Throw the spare shit back into bank yo

          • I just hate that I stayed up late organizing my PC and didn’t even finish

          • organizing bank I mean

          • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

            R. I. P

  • AuroraLights493

    WAIT….Serebii says that Shinies are possible in the transfer from VC to Bank, based on the original Gen 1 algorithm????

    CAN SOMEONE CONFIRM??? MY HEART CANT TAKE THIS. <3

    • MelloMori

      Yeah, its been confirmed that it can. It’s kinda complected and pretty much random, but it can happen, meaning that shiny Mew is also now legal.

      • Ultron

        Well Shiny Mew has been legal since gen 3, it’s just very very slim that the ones in the current gen are legit unless they soft reset way back when and transferred it.

        • MelloMori

          I could have sworn that Shiny mew has always been shiny locked, even back then. Learn something new every day I suppose.

          • Ultron

            As far as I know, the faraway island mews were not shiny locked.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            The one by Old Sea Map wasn’t, I believe it was in Emerald..

          • Ultron

            Correcto

      • But you cant transfer Mew

        • Ultron

          You can’t transfer illegal mews* There was a legit Mew event for the gen 1 ports in Europe and Japan only.

          • 😮
            how did that work?

          • Ultron

            Honestly no idea. Just remember being bummed they didn’t do it in other countries.

  • SpectralSeraph

    “Transporter. Poké Transporter’s 1.1 patch requires 420 blocks,”
    420 Blocks
    Blaziken most transferred mon?

  • EarthenWarrior

    So my ass of a brother caused trouble with the Shia Labeouf wackjobs in NY
    20 bucks says his mug will be plastered all over the memeverse……

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Wait……he did? Was he one of those people spouting Nazi shit that was caught on video? (not saying your brother is one, but that’s what those people were doing lol)

  • 😮 I forgot I have a shiny Kyurem and Zekrom

    • Damn.I have like a ton of Legedaries,Mythicals,and Shinies (Including shinies the former 2,thanks to QR Codes)in my copy of Omega Ruby,but I can’t transfer any of them or any of my regular Pokemon in that game to my copy of Sun cuz I need to pay for the freakin’ pass and my friend has my copy of OR(he’s busy collecting boxes of Jigglypuffs,it annoys me to no end),so I’m really bored and annoyed by the fact that I’ve seen pretty much everyone else do it,while I’m stuck with just Pokemon that I caught in Sun.(Sorry if I dragged on with this,I tend to ramble a lot)

  • The PinSir

    I don’t believe this was in ORAS, but:
    So I’m using my Rayquaza for training up Pokemon and to use it once again on Sun. Anyway, a cool gimmick with it I discovered is when it uses Dragon Ascent as a normal Rayquaza the attack is a cyan color. But when it’s a Mega Rayquaza, the attack is a emerald green. Like I said, don’t remember it was in ORAS, but its a neat little feature for Dragon Ascent.

    • temporario23

      I think it was in ORAS too. I know I remember the attack animation being different depending on if it mega evolved or not.

      • The PinSir

        Oh really? I guess I completely glanced over that then.

  • bam! All of my Pokemon from Red version are now in Moon version!

  • Ultron

    I feels so great to have all my pokemon with me in S/M :3

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Right? It finally feels like the family is back together. Also having my Pokemon Yellow Pokemon in Sun feels weird. I’m gonna have to level them up to 100 now that they’re in games that aren’t totally frustrating to grind in lol

      • Ultron

        I haven’t traded any of those yet. I need to catch Mewtwo in Yellow. Not sure if I want it to be in the master ball or go for a pokeball?

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          Yeah I ended up doing Mewtwo really quick(as quick as you can in Yellow) before transferring them over. I wanted to get that done before I left only a small handful of mons in the game. It was very frustrating to go through Cerulean cave not once, but twice so I could get what I needed to catch Mewtwo lol

          • Ultron

            Cerulean cave just sucks

          • TheWinterMonster6893

            You can say that again. It’s fine for grinding, but considering grinding in the old games is awful it most certainly sucks lol

    • Ithsme

      I miss my tortilla, I can’t get bank yet. 🙁

      • Ultron

        You could always trade someone in gen 6 games and have them transfer it through their bank and then trade back?

        • Ithsme

          I don’t want to ask that of people, I feel like that might be annoying lol

    • Pokemania88

      Same…. It just feels complete. Also I was able to get a shiny 4 iv celesteela with my 5 iv shiny lopunny 😀

      • Shiny Lopunny best pokemon

      • Ultron

        But the UB’s are shiny locked…

        • Pokemania88

          I’m sorry. It wasn’t shiny. I just got a lot of shinies that day so I figured Celesteela was also shiny lol

    • The PinSir

      Having all of my OR Pokemon in Sun feels great, like a family reunion with the new family in town, which in this case is my Sun team

      • Ultron

        Same! I think I accidentally left some behind in Ruby though D: Gotta get over to them pronto

        • The PinSir

          The only thing that was sad when I transferred my OR Pokemon to Sun was I had to leave behind my Cosplay Pikachu (who was a part of my original team) because it was a Special Pokemon.

          • Ultron

            I don’t understand why it wouldn’t let us…did they not put it’s coding into S/M??

          • The PinSir

            Not sure about that… yet it was very dumb of them not to because it was a good partner to have on my team, so I basically sacrificed Pikachu to stay in OR

          • Ultron

            Same :/ I loved the rockstar and belle ones… :I

  • Wes

    I’ve moved a few Pokemon up to Moon, but I’m reluctant to do them all. Not having an in-game National Dex was the worst decision that could’ve been made for us live Dex-ers. And I don’t want to mess up my live Dex in Yellow either. I thought Bank would be great, but all I’ve got is more stress than Pokémon. :/

    • Ultron

      I’ve moved them all to Gen 7 and I don’t really notice anything. I just won’t find them in the pokedex, but I don’t really read dex entries anyway..

    • temporario23

      As much as I want to transfer my mons, I won’t do it until they announce another Gen 7 game for the 3DS (either another Alola-based game or DP remakes) that has the remaining Mega stones.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Bored and sick time for a standalone Fakemon
    Spuncture
    The Inflation Pkm
    Poison/Flying
    Aftermath/Poison Point HA: Volatile (upon fainting the user detonates causing massive damage)
    a large bulbous fish like creature with a pale lavender skin color filled to the brim with gasses, their bodies are covered with nothing but long purple spines that stick out, it has eye stalks with droopy lazy eyes, a duck like pair of lips puckered to keep its fumes in and two tiny fins that it attempts to flutter in the air
    “Spunture’s belly constantly breaks down food into toxic gasses causing it to float in the air, it developed rock hard spines to protect its thin soft body, when enraged they blasts their spines like rockets that can turn a school bus into Swiss cheese”

  • Aaaanndd the GTS is even worse now. -.-

    Which sucks too. I managed to snag a Tapu Koko for a Garchomp and used it to get Bulu and Lele in my dex. It’s going to be much harder to find good deals for it

    • Ithsme

      I don’t get why it’s worse, couldn’t you always have asked for a mew/arceus/genesect/manaphy/keldeo? I saw someone wanting a zigzagoon, I’m fairly sure.

      • Well it’s worse than it was pre-bank I mean.

    • Ultron

      GTS has and always will be trash. You can’t even search for natures or even specific vivillon patterns. T.r.a.s.h.

      • Here’s hoping GF decides to revamp it in gen 8.
        I mean last gen they added the ability to narrow down options to pokemon you have so that’s nice

        • Ultron

          True, but I just don’t think it’s worth it. You could already get almost every pokemon across the entirety of gen 6, it wasn’t really necessary to use it at all.

      • temporario23

        GTS is not that bad. I actually got all the Vivillon patterns through it without much trouble. I also found some Gen 6 pokémon with their HA that I needed in Y. And I used it to complete the Alola dex before the Bank update. It’s a matter of looking for what you want every now and then and snag when you have the chance to.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It does suck, which is why I stick mainly to agreed internet trades on forums and reddit.

    • EarthenWarrior

      GTS is the scum of the earth, mindless stupidheads demanding legends and shines stark raving mad

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Many of them are children who don’t know better, others are just hoping for someone desperate or a hack.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Children of the age 21-30

          • Nope. Can confirm. When my little cousin still played Pokemon he would do this kind of thing

          • EarthenWarrior

            The child must be spanked for his selfishness

          • He hasn’t played Pokemon in like 5 years so

          • EarthenWarrior

            Shirking off Pokemon responsibilities eh? Surely he is disowned by now

          • We all know Rule number 1 of Wigglytuff’s Guild but I don’t have a say in it 😛

          • EarthenWarrior

            I hate that Wigglytuff with unmeasurable fury, I’d sooner club his soft head with a wrench and convert all members into blood thirsty bounty hunters
            And I would be their King

          • But Wigglytuff is like the best character in that game next to Grovyle and Dusknoir

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            R.I.p. Grovyle

          • EarthenWarrior

            He’s beyond stupid, the sheer fact that this….thing hold any kind of leadership and adventuring prowess is nothing more than a cosmic prank gone heavily awry

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            2. Run away and Pay!

          • 3. Smiles go for Miles!

          • The Last Kurusu returns

            No one can beat this rule list

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’ll roll the list into a tube and beat Wigglytuff to a pink pulp

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I said ‘many’, not most and certainly not all.

        • Well, I’m likely one of them “children who don’t know better” since I ask for Tapus and UBs and Necrozma and Type:Nulls for Oranguru/Jangmo-o/Zorua/Charmander and I actually get them. I’m not gonna say no to essentially free unique Pokemon, though.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I’d say you’re a chancer, and it’s paid off for you.

      • Well, technically you can’t demand a shiny on GTS…

    • I’m doing Zoruas and Charmanders for Tapus and UBs now instead of Beast Ball Orangurus and Jangmo-os…

      It’s not “worse”, other things are just the new hot items.

    • The singular Küppo™

      Asking Groudons and Arceus for the most mundane things possible…… Just like the good old times

      • And I’ll be the first to tell you that it works sometimes if you offer the right things and ask for the right things. <3

        Also Arceus is normally not GTS tradeable so it's their loss…

    • Ultron

      Nice team 🙂

    • The PinSir

      Nice to see someone else who used Jolteon and Vileplume in RB
      Great team btw

      • Ultron

        I hardly remember my Yellow team, I played it months ago. I think I had Charizard, Venusaur, Pikachu, Butterfree, Snorlax, and Primeape. Okay, I guess I do remember…

        • The PinSir

          It’s a very well-balanced and good team you have there!
          I played Red, so my team is Charizard, Starmie, Jolteon, Vileplume, Pidgeot, and Nidoking. Still haven’t beat the E4 though because training my Pokemon up at Victory Road was tedious and I sort of gave it a long break…

          • Ultron

            Eh, the team is okay in terms of balance. I didn’t have a water type, so I sub’d Snorlax. I was trying to make an “Ash-only” team cause Yellow follows him essentially. Your team is pretty good though. I love Starmie so much 🙂

          • The PinSir

            Teaching it Surf, Ice Beam, Psychic, and Recover makes it a beast, and it is so worth it as a water type. Also, must’ve felt satisfying in a way when you beat the E4 in Yellow because you used an Ash theme team, so you basically made Ash win a League XD

          • Ultron

            True..I didn’t even think about that though xD

          • The PinSir

            BTW, since we’re talking about Ash, you ever play Ash Grey before?

          • Ultron

            No, is it a fan game?

          • The PinSir

            Yeah, basically you are Ash in the game and you do everything he did in the anime up till episode 116 and the first 2 movies. This is the summary of it:
            “You are the main character of the game and your name is Ash Ketchum. You are going to have an amazing adventure around your Pokemon World tomorrow. You have to pass 116 events and 2 movie events to complete this trip. On the way, you will meet a lot of Pokemon, rivals and trainers that will help you so much. You also need to catch Pokemon which Ash catches and make the decisions he makes like in the episodes. Unfortunately, you stayed up all night to watch Pokemon Arena matches on TV and you are so tired and woke up late. It is your mistake and not as planned. You are hurry to Pallet Town gate but all your rivals owned their own Pokemon starters and there is no remaining Pokemon. If you don’t have a Pokemon, you have to go home and you decide to choose Pikachu as your friend. Your trip is started from now…”

          • Ultron

            That sounds really cool! Do you have to use the mons he did?

          • The PinSir

            I haven’t played the game myself, but I do know that they are events in which you get them, but I’m pretty sure you can catch other Pokemon

          • Ultron

            That’s pretty sweet. I wonder if there are version for the other regions?

          • The PinSir

            Hopefully there is another one, would be pretty sweet

    • The singular Küppo™

      Vileplume, Jolteon and Articuno are bay <3

  • The PinSir

    Kurusu, here’s my top 8 and 7:

    #7 Kommo-O
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/627e9835dacddc88b19e6699d340d768a3f22d107fb0e78278bf8a3960e7b96a.png
    Ever had that one typing you always wanted for forever and then it came true? Well, in my case, That was the Dragon/Fighting type, and Kommo-O became the first ever Pokemon to be that typing. And once I heard Sun and Moon had a Dragon/Fighting type, I instantly made it one of my favorites.
    Kommo-O itself is a great Pokemon, as well as a good pseudo-legendary to use. It has very well balanced stats, the exception being a lower HP and Speed (but c’mon, having awesome Attack, Sp Attack, Defense, and Sp Def makes up for that), and a wide move pool it can use. Whether it be a Sp attacking move pool, physical attacking move pool, or even a special move pool, Kommo-O fits the bill.
    When I did my walkthrough with Sun, I had the patience to not had a 5th member because I wanted Kommo-O so badly. It was worth the wait to finally have my Dragon/Fighting type after all this time, as after going through the grass for 40 minutes trying to find Jangmo-O, right from the start it was a great partner to use against opponents. Probably one of my favorite Alola Pokemon

    Now, onto #7, Talonflame
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a6511b45cff79ead952d776c716b2bc06ed20e7a7d42957b1b4338cbf4f9c76e.png
    For this spot on my list, I had some competition between Staraptor, Braviary, Talonflame, Toucannon, and Swellow for my favorite regional bird Pokemon (though technically Braviary isn’t one though). Nevertheless, I choose Talonflame for that spot as my favorite bird.
    Compared to the other birds who competed on this list, I had some pretty great memories of Talonflame back in X. Always the fast, powerful flying type it was on the team, Talonflame was a valuable asset. Being the fastest fire type ever, Talonflame swiftly outspeeds all in XY, peppering the opponent first with a flurry of fire and flying type moves. Although its attacking states aren’t too good, having access to powerful moves such as Flare Blitz and Brave Bird made it very strong, and just enough to make itself worthy of a good Pokemon on my team.
    Also, having some of my favorite types as its typing makes it that just better, even if it gets wrecked by Stealth Rocks and Rock type moves a lot.

    • The PinSir

      @irvinap:disqus I have my top 8 and 7 now, might be a little too late to post it though

  • Omg I’m so so close.
    I just need someone to show me Cosmog, Cosmoem, Hakamo-o, Kommo-O, Dhelmise, Necrozma and Porygon 2!

  • Ultron

    Tbh I think it’s complete and utter bullshit the *only* physical fairy move (which is only 90 BP, nothing impressive) has 90 accuracy and not 100.

    • Ultron

      Also I’m really bummed they called it Play Rough and didn’t just use it’s direct Japanese translation “Frolic”

      The English translation team literally should be fired. They suck.

      • I kinda disagree. Frolic’s main and usually-understood definition right now is carefree play and not “that other action”.

        Play Rough implies “that other action” better while implying a bit of violence.

        • Ultron

          I just don’t like that play rough gives little indication that it has anything to do with fairies. It could be a dark move..or even fighting just going off the name. Frolic at least keeps the whimsical aspect of fairy type. frolic doesn’t necessarily mean non-violent though, so I think it works better.

    • Right now, Waterfall (80 BP 100 accuracy) is the standard for physical moves with no drawbacks. Its slightly more damaging counterpart is Aqua Tail (90 BP 90 accuracy). So Play Rough is par for the course.

      • Ultron

        It’s just disappointing that they neglect certain types movepools.

        • That said, it would be great to have a Fairy-type Waterfall. <3

          Also they DID fix Dedenne's moveset and added Play Rough, so they are doing something, just not enough while they forget about things like Sceptile's coverage… 🙂

          • Ultron

            I wish they would add some more special fairy moves too so that togekiss could get a stab fairy move. They didn’t give it moonblast due to serene grace I’m sure.

          • Togekiss has Dazzling Gleam… but that’s kinda it.

          • Ultron

            Oh that’s true I guess. 80 BP kinda leaves a bit to be desired though. A 95 special fairy move counterpart to flamethrower/thunderbolt/ice beam would be nice

          • Yer probs right, maybe they thought Moonblast with double proc chance, was too OP for a tank like Togekiss or something. Florges and Tapu Fini get Moonblast though, but they don’t get Serene Grace, so…

          • Ultron

            I guess I’m mainly asking for a special fairy tm then. Idk, I think they could just add more moves in general 😛 Togekiss is pretty great atm though so it’s a minor complaint

          • I think making Moonblast or Play Rough as TMs would give it more exposure…

            Like the days when Stealth Rock was a TM way back in Gen 4, many many mons got to use it.

    • Armaggedon16

      Still better than Ice ._.

      • Ultron

        The physical side of ice and electric also suck..

  • I would like to have a moment for the Pokemon from my past teams that got lost in the transfer process in some way. Either I lost them from forgetting to transfer them to ORAS or other unknown cause, let us have a moment of silence for

    Gothorita (Black 2)
    Noivern (X)

    • If you’re still on, I can touch trade all of your missing Pokemon from your dex.

      • When I get home from school in about 5 hours I can trade

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Ashamed to admit I have purchased Yellow last year and have yet to play it loool

    • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

      They’re fun games but they do get tedious :s

  • Fairy God Mom It’s Not A Phase

    So I’m just looking over all my past teams and damn am I glad Surf and Fly aren’t necessary any more, I’ve got so much Flying and Water types

    Also surprisingly little Fairy – Types, most of mine were actually retyped when I put them into bank (Whimsicott, Togekiss, one of my Gardevoir, Clefable and Wigglytuff) and a handful of Pokémon that have always been Fairy (Sylveon, Florges, my other Gardevoir, Primarina, Ribombee, Shiinotic, Mimikyu, and after my Decidueye run, Ninetales and Comfey)

    Mass breeding Rowlet because I need that female ffs
