Possible Transfer with Pokemon Bank thread

Discussion in 'Let's Go, Pikachu & Eevee' started by Auraninja, Jun 1, 2018.

    Here, we talk about our thoughts about the possibility of connecting with Pokemon Bank or with future titles.

    Are there any Pokemon you would like to store for the future? How about that Golbat that you want to evolve? Maybe you want to evolve Poliwhirl differently.

    Also, how do you think it will work (assuming it will)? Do you think it will be a straight deposit, or work like the transporter method for Gen V and Virtual Console games?


    The Question was brought to Masuda, and he said he couldn't answer.

    Bank will be compatible with gen 8. That's the whole point in bank. It's the catch-all solution to storing and transferring pokemon between all your Pokemon games.

    However, Let's Go is not a generation 8 game.

    That wasn't want I was getting at. I was making a thread about transferring assuming Let's Go can communicate with Pokemon Bank. I know Generation 8 will.

    If that was so then LGPE will have more value in the reason to get it. It will allow a healthy supply of extra Pokémon from these games especially in Pokémon GO when the player has to catch a lot of Pokémon of the same evolutionary line to farm candies and at least put these Pokémon to use by transfer.

    You might want to change the "Generation 8" stuff then because it's misleading and everyone who comes to this thread will see the title and first post and not your clarification reply.

    I would love for Pokemon Bank to interface with LGPE and Go!

    I feel like I would train a Poliwag, evolve it, and then shortly after, "abandoning" it so I can evolve it into the 'toed.

    I think this would likely work with Pokemon transporter, as the scope of all Pokemon in this game is limited. Transporter has worked like a one way street.

    I wonder if Mega Evolutions will be a thing. It can make a difference for Pokemon such as Beedrill.

    I'm really curious to hear more about this aspect of the games.

    What would be really cool is if they integrated minigames into Pokemon Bank for the Pokemon stored there (think Poke Pelago). It’d turn Bank into a game, and I wouldn’t feel as guilty for leaving Pokemon in the bank...

    Bank is a cloud-based storage utility. Remember that nothing is stored locally on your system - it's all in their cloud servers. Minigames would mean the app constantly has to pull Pokémon data from those servers in real time - that's a lot of unnecessary hassle and data that would serve no purpose besides trying to turn a storage utility into a game, which it was never meant to be.

    From what I gather only the first 151 are even programmed into the game, of course the rest might be added via free dlc (I hope) but by the looks of it we'll have to wait until the 2019 game to transfer.

    Well can't the Pokemon from the virtual console titles be transferred to Pokemon Bank as well? So i can see it being possible for LGPE Pokemon to be transferred into the Bank as well, you just wouldn't be able to put any of the later Pokemon into the game.
