Poke Bank Updated for OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire


The new Version 1.3 makes the App compatible with Pokemon OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire, which will be released this Friday. If you haven’t downloaded the App yet, it’s a FREE download and comes with the bonus Poke Transporter App, which is used to transfer Pokemon from the four 5th Gen Games (Black 1 & 2 and White 1 & 2). The catch is it’s $5 a year to use the Cloud Storage but totally worth it if like me you have All four 3DS games (I preordered both OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire and have botb X and Y), all four 5th Gen games and all five 4th Gen games (Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold and Soul Silver).

You get 100 boxes with which to store 3,000 Pokemon. I have two 3DS consoles so for me that’s 6,000 Pokemon. Also, Poke Bank allows for several people with their own copy of X/Y/OR/AS to usethe App. Putting it simply: If you have a friend who has X or Y (or OR or AS), you can swap or store Pokemon. Just be mindful Poke Bank requires an internet connection to work so…yeah.

This isn’t the only thing Pokemon related I have for you:

The May in that video is non-canon. What you see are all of the Mega Evolutions introduced in OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire. 18 new Megas.

When you think about it, Kyogre and Groudon’s new forms are actually a form of de-Evolution called Primal Reversion. Hence the names PRIMAL Kyogre/Groudon. Of course, their Primal forms are crazy-strong (as if their original forms weren’t powerful enough) so…yeah XD

I got one more thing to show you, mostly just for those who skipped the 4th and 5th Gen games:

Details are not currently known but when certain conditions have been met, you will have the opportunity to catch Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, Zekrom, Lugia and Ho-Oh. There may be others but Serebii.net reported a while back these legends are confirmed as being in OR/AS. If I had to guess Dialga (Dragon/Steel), Reshiram (Dragon/Fire) and Ho-Oh (Flying/Fire) are in OmegaRuby while Palkia (Dragon/Water), Zekrom (Dragon/Electric) and Lugia (Flying/Psychic) are in Alpha Sapphire. I would not be surprised if Regigigas was put in for the hell of it given his subjects (RegiRock, Regice and Registeel) were introduced in the original R/S and are needed to get the Regi King in Sinnoh and Unova.

There are also rumors Deoxys and Jirachi may be stashed in OR/AS so keep your eyes open. Even without the extra legends, the original Ruby and Sapphire had the second-most legendaries (weather you include Deoxys and Jirachi or not) with 10. Only Diamond/Pearl/Platinum has more Legendaries with 13. The Unova games combined have 12 between them while X/Y has 6, two of which have not been officially released anywhere in the world yet (Hooper and Volcanion).

Anywho, now’s a great time to jump into Pokemon if you haven’t yet or come back if you’ve been taking a break. Not saying you have to get both games like I did but regardless, it could be all kinds of fun!
