Pokemon Bank Now Available in North America

A Pokémon Bank to assist with managing all your Pokémon.

As of today, Pokémon Bank is now available in North America after its launch in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, just a few days ago.

The subscription-based service is available through the eShop, and if you try it now through September 30th, you can get a complimentary Celebi download.

Pokémon Bank lets players deposit, withdraw and manage up to 3,000 Pokémon in private boxes online. You can transfer from multiple copies of Pokémon X and Y, and the accompanying app Poké Transporter lets you transfer from Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, and White 2 to X and Y.

You need to log into Pokémon Bank and connect it to your Nintendo Network ID, select a "gift" from the menu, and place a Pokémon in a cloud box.

Once you do that, you can load up Pokémon X or Y, choose the Pokémon Link option, redeem the prize, go back to the Pokémon Bank app and select "Use Bank." Once you return to Pokémon X or Y and use Pokémon Link again, Celebi should be yours.

The app will run players $4.99 per year for use.
