Today, The Pokémon Company International announced a special gift for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players that download Pokémon Bank, the new Nintendo 3DS downloadable software service. When a player downloads Pokémon Bank anytime between December 27, 2013, and September 30, 2014, they will receive the Mythical Time Travel Pokémon Celebi! This special Celebi comes with the move Hold Back, a restrained attack that cannot be learned through normal gameplay, which always leaves the target with at least 1 HP. This allows players to weaken a target with certainty and is very useful in capturing Pokémon. This particular Celebi also knows the moves Recover, Heal Bell, and Safeguard. Click here to see how to unlock this Celebi.
Players will need to use the Pokémon Link feature in their Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game to receive Celebi. After you have received your Celebi gift within Pokémon Bank, select Pokémon Link, and Celebi will be sent to your PC Box in your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game.
With Pokémon Bank, players can:
- Deposit, withdraw, and manage up to 3,000 Pokémon in private boxes online through an internet connection.
- Transfer Pokémon from multiple copies of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, including the downloadable versions, using one Nintendo 3DS system.
- Transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2 to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y using the Poké Transporter, a linked application received when you download Pokémon Bank.
Players who download the Pokémon Bank and its linked application, the Poké Transporter, between December 27, 2013 and January 31, 2014, will receive a complimentary trial pass within the application to experience the services at no charge for 30 days. After this trial period, the Pokémon Bank service will cost $4.99 per year.
