What you need to know about Pokémon Bank's arrival for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Pokémon Bank, a premium online safety deposit box for your Pokémon, has been released for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, allowing players to transfer creatures from older games, including Red and Blue, Black and White, X and Y and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (or ORAS) right up to the latest generation of games.
