The upcoming launch of Pokemon Home will be celebrated with a little promotion. After Pokemon Home is released, Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter will be available at no cost for a one-month period.

Players will be able to bring over creatures from various Pokemon series games using these two apps. Once Pokemon are in Pokemon Bank, they can be moved to Pokemon Home.

Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter will both be experiencing a bit of maintenance on Tuesday. Here’s the rundown from Nintendo:

Pokemon Bank as well as Poke Transporter have launched across North America. 3DS owners can download the two apps at no extra cost, via the eShop. Pokemon Bank takes up 238 blocks of space on an SD card while Poke Transporter requires 218 blocks.

Pokemon Bank (and Poke Transporter) finally launched in Europe today. North America still doesn’t have access to the application, but it sounds like the wait won’t be too much longer.

The official Pokemon Twitter account sent out a message a short while ago confirming that players in the states “will be able to introduce their Pokémon to the Kalos region soon”.

The note in full:


Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter are still missing in action. There hasn’t been much news about either of the two downloads as of late, but Nintendo of America did provide a new brief update on Twitter a short while ago.

The company wrote:


Pokemon Bank is still unavailable in Japan, as is the case with other territories. However, Nintendo has re-added Poke Transporter.

To access the app, users will need to visit a certain area inside Pokemon Bank, which will then load a specific page inside the eShop. Poke Transporter can’t be found on the eShop by any other means.
