Virtual Console Releases of Original Pokemon Games Will Support Pokemon Bank

In a bit of surprising news, it was revealed today in the Pokemon Direct that the digital versions of Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow due out tomorrow on the eShop will be supported by the transfer service Pokemon Bank. More importantly, the creatures you collect will able to be transferred to Pokemon Sun and Moon when they release later this year.

In the video, support for only those two games was teased, meaning it may not be possible to transfer your Pokemon to games like X and Y or Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Pokemon Sun and Moon are due for a Holiday 2016 release.
