All regions have it up for download! Servers seem to be struggling though since people have reported slow downloads.

EDIT: Shiny Pokemon show up as Shiny!

EDIT: Up on Android!

Available on the eShop as a free download. Pokemon Bank updated for connectivity.

No mobile app yet.

But seriously, it seems really weird to just shadow drop it, seems like something that should have been in a Direct or at least announced ahead of time in some fashion like a Tweet

I went into Bank to make sure there wasn't anything in my living dex that I need to hold back in Gen 7 for whatever reason. Bank would not let me in saying it needs an update. But there is no update yet on the 3DS eshop.

Bank is currently undergoing maintenance and Nintendo/TPC haven't acknowledged that Home is live on Switch yet, so this probably went up early.

Is Pokémon Bank free already? As soon as they make that free I'll pay the 1 month sub for Home and transfer the entire dex.

I was able to update Bank and just logged in after getting an error the first time saying there was maintenance.

I'M READY TO TRANSFER MY COMPLETE DEX

AND ALL THE COMPETITIVE MONS IVE BREEDED OVER THE PAST15 YEARS.
I was thinking about this, we won't be able to use any of them for any competition nor ranked battles, right? Pretty sure everyone needs to be Galar born, so more breeding coming >_>

I booted up Pokémon Bank for the first time in like 3 years and they didn’t delete my complete living dex, despite not subbing all that time, wow.
Guess I’ll have to sub to HOME...

Don't see any reason to get this right now when if I moved the 800 ish creatures from Sun/Moon, most would be stuck on Home until June/Dec.

Wait, so that means that from now on people will be able to use ALL Pokemon from all the gens competitively? Damn, I was just getting into the meta game and it was already confusing and complex with the options that already existed...

I’m jealous of the people who got in right away. I’m stuck at 10% downloaded

People who tried out the Pokémon Bank update, can you transfer the previously blocked Totem Pokémon from USUM?

Nope. Only Galar mons for competitive since theyre the only ones in the code to begin with along with a handful of others. Next year is when the floodgates will be opened most likely

No. Regional dex only. Can't even transfer half the pokemon to Sword and Shield as they are not iun the games code. There are a few dozen that are in the code but weren't in game though like the other Kanto starters. Those still SHOULDN'T be legal butr I saw video showing people can use slowpoke who also shouldn't be legal sop who knows.

So we can only import the Pokémon that are in the Pokédex of sword and shield into sword and shield right? Does this include other forms of Pokémon like vulpix as well?
