Introduce the Pokémon you caught in Johto to the Alola region,
with Pokémon Bank!
Did you know that you can transfer the Pokémon you’ve caught in the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Gold Version or Pokémon Silver Version into the Alola region of your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game, using Pokémon Bank**?
Pokémon Bank is an application—available from Nintendo 3DS eShop—that allows you to deposit, store, and manage your Pokémon in private Boxes on the Internet.
This means that you can bring the precious Pokémon you’ve been raising with such care from one game into your next adventure – be it Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon!
Pokémon Bank is a paid service, with an annual charge for usage.
