[edit] Background

Pokémon Bank is a 3DS application and service designed for use with the following Pokémon titles:

The resource allows players to deposit, store, and manage their Pokémon online in their own private Boxes on the Internet in addition to their respective games. Pokémon Bank offers a variety of search functions to better locate any Pokémon you deposit online. Most importantly, the Pokémon Bank allows players to transfer their Pokémon from multiple copies of the supported games to a single game for greater convenience.

  • Pokémon Black Version 2
  • Pokémon White Version 2

Note that players will require a 3DS with a compatible DS slot in order commence transfer from the aforementioned games.
