If you are a Pokemon Go player, then the problem is that it’s hard to store your Pokemons in the game. It is also hard for you to transfer them from one device to another.
The solution of this problem is Pokemon Bank. It allows players to store their Pokemons on cloud so they can be transferred between different devices easily. However, some people have complained about its service quality and asked if it still works properly now?
This article will give an answer for all these questions about Pokemon bank. You’ll find out does pokemon bank still work after Niantic released new updates in 2017-2018?, how much money does pokemon bank cost, what are its specifications and download links etc.. Let’s check it out!
Does pokemon bank still work?
No, it would seem Nintendo has just not updated the app to fit with the new games. According to a post on the official Pokemon website, “Pokémon Bank will work perfectly with Pokémon X and Pokémon Y even without an update*.
The * at the end of the sentence is where the good news lies. Why?
Because it means that Nintendo knows that Pokemon bank can work with X and Y, but more-so that they will update pokemon bank once again to ensure players can transfer their old pokemon into a new generation.
So there you have it! It seems Pokemon bank will still work with the new games. Nintendo are just waiting to update it in order to fit in with X and Y. Thanks, Nintendo!
What is Pokemon Bank?
Pokémon Bank is an application for the 3DS that can be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. It allows you to deposit, store and manage up to 3,000 Pokémon online.
It costs $5 a year to download so it adds up if you are buying 30+ games every year, but it is well worth it! You can also store your boxes in pokemon bank meaning that when trading with friends or participating in global missions they won’t get lost. This is especially useful because there appears to be no limit on how many boxes you can have.
How to use Pokemon Bank?
Pokemon bank can be downloaded on your 3DS console and is free for the first 30 days (after that it costs $5 a year). Next you need to open up pokemon X or Y, select Mystery Gift and then Receive Gift. Select this option and click yes. Pokemon bank will now be available on your main menu!
From there you can deposit pokemon into your Pokebank, manage them (you can store 50 of one type of pokemon in each section of your bag), as well as transfer pokemon from previous games such as Black & White and Diamond/Pearl/Platinum!
Advantages and Disadvantages of using the Pokemon bank
The biggest benefit is the ability to transfer old pokemon into X & Y!! But what’s even better than this… Is that once someone transfers their pokemon into X & Y, they are unable to use them in any previous games… So it could be a way of stopping people from using old pokemon and potentially ruining the game!
A pokemon can be deposited into a box and traded with little to no consequences. This means you never have to delete a pokemon again!
You will always have 100% of your storage space available in your bag. This is great for people who have limited space on their SD cards/3DS consoles.
- You still need to go through the whole game if you don’t use the eon ticket
- Not all games/pokemon are compatible
- It downloads pokemon, but their 3D models are not viewable (in the time of writing this)
Pokémon Home release date, price and means for Pokémon Bank
When is the Pokémon Home release date?
The biggest news for this brand new product has been revealed, and you can’t wait until its finally released later next year – but how long do we have left with any remaining winter slushies?
How much will it cost to play?
It is free to download and use, but there are fees for purchasing PokéCoins, which are used for buying in-game items. These include Lure Modules, Incense, Bag Upgrades, and other useful things you need when playing the game.
Pokémon Home requires an internet connection to work properly. If your device goes offline while playing the game or your subscription runs out, you’ll still have access to any Pokémon deposited into your PC Boxes. However, you won’t be able to deposit new ones until you return online again.
Where can you use Pokémon Home?
Pokémon Home, the new mobile game that is set to release alongside Pokémon Bank in 2019 for Nintendo Switch and iOS devices will allow you manage your save file more conveniently than ever before. This means no more crashed consoles or lost data because of poor management with this all-inclusive app!
What games does Pokémon Home work with?
Pokémon uses HTML5 technology so that players can play it in browsers on their computer, smartphone or tablet.
You’ll need a device that can run HTML5-compatible web apps to play Pokémon Home. If you’re not sure if your device can do this, check with the manufacturer for more information.
Pokémon Home is a new service that will work with all of Bank’s supported games. These include Pokémon X, Y & Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire as well as Sun & Moon; Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon for those who have them on Nintendo Switch or 3DS systems respectively
It only allows players to transfer their caught Pocket Monsters into one game: Sword and Shield . So if you want your Weedle from GO , it can’t be transferred over there – they’re exclusive!
What will happened to Pokémon Bank accounts?
Pokémon Bank was a paid service for Nintendo 3DS that allowed players to store their Pokémon online. The storage system worked very well and there were various ways to get the most out of it, such as transferring your rare pokemon to Y version or using multiple bank accounts.
The service ended on February 28th, 2017 and any existing accounts will no longer be available after January 20th, 2018. Because of this, we must take precautions with our wallets and save data before time runs out.
If you didn’t know about terminating of the service: do not worry! You can still keep all your Pokemon even if you don’t do anything. Your account is safe until January 20th, 2018 when the termination starts (and an automatic transfer of all Pokémon to the new service, Poké Transporter, will take place).
Pokémon Bank will remain operational, but Nintendo’s 3DS titles require the older service. Pokémon Home therefore offers a way to access both games and data from previous versions of records in one place on your phone or tablet via an app downloadable directly from the Google Play Store for Android-powered devices; Apple’s App store if you’re using iOS.-NYTimes
Can you still use Pokémon Bank in 2021?
Pokémon Bank doesn’t seem to be available on Nintendo’s eShop, so my guess is that it will stop working when the service does. It seems that for now you can still use Pokémon Bank after 2019, but I would recommend not to store your Pokémon in it anymore in any case. We’ll see what the future brings!
How long is Pokémon Bank supported?
Pokémon Bank is a downloadable application that offers Pokémon players access to their saved duplicate copies. To use all of its features, you must purchase an in-app pass which lasts for 365 days from purchase date and can be extended if there are less than 14 days left before it expires by using one old pass with another new account created through the same email address on your device or online via Nintendo Network ID service.
Will they shut down Pokémon Bank?
Pokémon Bank will remain operational. In fact, Pokémon Home requires the use of older service to access Nintendo 3DS titles and there’s no need for concern over shutting down apps because they’re actually an integral part in helping you get your hands on that new shiny Pikachus friend!
This is due out this February with more information coming soon from The Professor himself about what awaits us inside his lab at Oak laboratory – stay tuned gamers!
The Pokemon Bank app is designed to store up to 3,000 of your favorite pocket monsters in the cloud so you can collect them all without cluttering your phone. It’s free for anyone who purchases a game for Nintendo Switch between December 26th 2017 and January 31st 2018. If it still works on an Apple device after that date or if there are any other details we missed, please let us know! We’ll be happy to update this blog post with more information as soon as possible.
