Today's Nintendo Direct has a surprise reveal for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y players. We though the news about Pokemon Bank and PokeTransporter was over when the feature's release date was revealed to be December 27 earlier this week. That's not all, folks. In addition to the release date being confirmed and the free trial being detailed, how about a free Pokemon too?
Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, and players of the previous generation of Black and White games who access the Pokemon Bank between now and September 2014 will get a Celebi as a free gift. Yup, everyone's favorite Psychic/Grass-type Pokemon from Johto will be included for everyone who accesses Pokemon Bank. That includes free trial users, so make sure to download the free Pokemon Bank trial before it expires between Dec. 27 and Jan. 31.
Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter allow for the storage of up to 3,000 legitimate Pokemon online from Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, Pokemon Black, Pokemon White, Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2. It launches December 27 and has a 30-day free trial if you download it before January 31, 2014. After that it will cost about $5 for a yearly subscription. Chump change, really. Support your Pokemon and get a free Celebi!
Update: We can confirm that the Celebi will be level 10 when downloaded.
