Pokemon Sun and Moon players are hopeful Nintendo will finally release the Pokemon Bank out in the game. At least this is the consensus since the developer promised a January 2017 update.
Nintendo On Pokemon Bank Update
Last September, Nintendo informed Pokemon Sun and Moon players that the Pokemon Bank update is happening this January. The month though is nearly over and no update has yet occurred. This has made players anxious as to when the developer will finally make the patch available.
About Pokemon Bank
The Pokemon Bank will allow Pokemon Sun and Moon players to transfer their pets from older Pokemon games including Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire , X and Y. Even from the VC version of Blue, Red and Yellow. The Bank can hold up to 3,000 pets per player but it requires a storage fee.
Nintendo's Silence Making Fans Edgy
It has been Nintendo's tradition of making minimum announcement regardless if it's a game feature or a new console. Unfortunately, industry observers believe that the Pokemon Company's announcement last September cause confusion to Western Pokemon Sun and Moon players.
They point out that the developer merely said that the Pokemon Bank update is coming out this January. This gave the impression that it may come out either early or mid-January. In contrast, Japanese players were informed that the Bank is available by late January, according to Polygon.
