Pokémon Sun and Moon: Here's What You Need To Know On The Upcoming Pokémon Bank
Game Freak has just released new info about the upcoming Pokémon bank and it may both excite and disappoint you. Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming feature in Pokémon Sun and Moon.
Pokémon Sun and Moon: Pokémon Bank
Game Freak stated that we will be having a January update that will bring about Pokémon bank into Pokémon Sun and Moon, which is currently supporting and available only for Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon X and Y. This means that with the upcoming update, we will soon be running around together with our beloved Pokémon from previous aforementioned generations. But there's a catch.
The Pokémon Bank in Sun and Moon would be slightly different as compared from the existing Pokébanks since once you transfer a Pokémon into Generation VII, you will no longer be able to transfer it back. Based on the infographic above, you can see that all Pokémon transferred from Generation I, V and VI into Generation VII cannot go back.
Why Is It A Big Deal?
As stated by Austin John on the video down below, one of the reasons why it may affect the decision making of some players is due to the fact that Pokémon Sun and Moon has yet to have all of the available Mega Stones from Generation VI. The game only has 16 out of 47 Mega Stones, which can be bought from the Battle Tree. And since items can't be transferred via Pokébank, you can't bring all of your Mega Stones from Gen VI into Sun and Moon.
Moreover, this would be the first time that Pokémon from Generation I will be able to transfer outside of Generation II. It's interesting to see how Game Freak would tweak the Pokémon Bank to accommodate Pokémon transferred from Generation I into the present one since there are a lot of missing features back then. For example, in Generation I, Pokémon only have four IVs: Attack, Defense, Speed and Special.
So if they're going to be transferred to Gen VII, how will the Pokémon get its remaining IVs? Also, how will the new Pokémon Bank consider the Pokémon's Gender, Inheritance, Nature, Shiny Status, etc. in the present Generation? Will it undergo a certain RNG calculation?
Let's just hope that Game Freak won't mess up on the upcoming feature of Pokémon Sun and Moon. What do you think of the possible implications of these changes? Share your ideas in the comments down below!
