Pokemon Sun and Moon Update on Pokemon Bank Release Date

Pokemon Sun and Moon players want to know when Pokemon Bank for the game will be out. Pokemon Bank is used to deposit, store and manage their collected Pokemon. This is an application which lets players deposit the Pokemon into Internet-based storage boxes.

Nintendo announced via the Pokemon Sun and Moon website, that this January, the “Nintendo 3DS downloadable software Pokemon Bank is expected to receive an update for compatibility with the game”. The Pokemon Bank is also available for Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon X, and Pokemon Y. But Nintendo still has not announced a definite release date for the said version even though the month is about to end.

The Pokemon Bank on the Pokemon Sun and Moon is a paid service for 3DS games. This offers storage for up to 3,000 Pokemon. The bank will also let players transfer monsters over from the game’s predecessors. This includes X, Y, Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby and Red, Blue and Yellow.

Fans Express Frustration

The compatibility update for the Pokemon Bank on the game still has not arrived. Many Pokemon fans are expressing their frustration with the late availability even when the release date announced is January. Some fans took to Twitter these frustrations. They were tweeting towards the official Pokemon account. They were asking when the update will be and they expect that the app will come before the month ends.

Joe Merrick, the webmaster of Serebii, in an interview with Polygon said that the confusion and desire for Pokemon Bank is an effect of vague delivery of updates from the Pokemon company itself. “It’s a lack of clarity and consistency in the message from Nintendo and The Pokémon Company,” he said. “As the Western arm only really gave the wider January 2017 date as opposed to the Late January 2017 Japan gave, many were pinning their hopes on it being early in the month and so are getting a bit impatient.”
