Legendary Celebi Available After Downloading Pokémon Bank

/ Dec 21st, 2013 No Comments

Brigette, the in-game developer of Pokémon Bank

This holiday season’s virtual Santa Claus, the Pokémon Company International, comes bearing gifts: the legendary Celebi will be given to Pokétrainers that download the Pokémon Bank app on Nintendo’s eShop starting Dec. 27 until Sept. 30 2014. The rare pokémon comes with the exclusive move Hold Back – guaranteed to weaken a target to at least 1 HP when used. In order to attain Celebi, players must select the Pokémon Link feature in the menu of their copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y.

Pokémon Bank is a new app that players can use to store up to 3000 pokémon in private boxes where they can deposit and withdraw their pokémon online. Downloaded along with Pokémon Bank, players will also receive the Pokémon Transporter that allows trainers to deposit their pokémon from the White, Black, White 2, and Black 2 versions into the Pokémon Bank, making fifth generation pokémon available in versions X and Y.

What’s really exciting about the ability to transfer pokémon from different generations – starting from Pokémon Black and White to their successors – is that this new app essentially changes the way Pokétrainers will transfer pokémon to future games in the next installments of the franchise. Additionally, players that work with multiple copies of each generation – let’s say those who play through version X and version Y in order to attain game exclusive content on their own – will be able to simply transfer their pokémon via Pokémon Bank. This new method requires much less work than the fourth generation’s Pal Park. Unlike generation V’s PokéTransfer Lab, it does not require two DSs.

Players who download Pokémon Bank between Dec. 27 and Jan. 31 will receive the app for a free trial period of 30 days – after the trial period, use of Pokémon Bank will require an annual charge of $4.99 in the US, or £4.49 in the UK.
