Pokémon Bank Rolling Out to Europe and Australia (Update: and North America)
Update: Pokémon Bank is out in North America now!
After weeks of waiting, Pokémon Bank is finally seeing distribution outside Japan. Players in Europe and Australia are able to download Pokémon Bank now from the eShop. Those in North America will need to wait though we don’t expect it to be much longer. The free trial period has been update and will be 30 days as long as you download before March 14th, 2014. Additionally, if you use the service before September 14th, 2014 you’ll receive a Celebi! The level 10 Celebi will know Safeguard, Recover, Heal Bell, and Hold Back with a random nature that you cannot reset for.
If you’re in the regions with Pokémon Bank, just fire up your 3DS camera and use the QR code below to instantly get to its eShop page and then download Poké Transporter from within the downloaded app:
Not in one of those regions? Prep for its release by sorting out your boxes! Remember that only Box 1 in 5th generation Pokémon games can be transferred to Pokémon Bank and none of your Pokémon can be holding any items! Here’s hoping there aren’t any server issues and everyone gets access to the service asap.
