Mewnium Z gift for Pokémon Bank

A new update for Pokémon Bank is now available. The update brings compatibility for Pokémon Sun and Moon. Players will be able to use Pokémon Bank to transfer Pokémon from Pokémon X and Y and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire to the Pokémon Sun and Moon games. Players can use Poké Transporter to transfer Pokémon from the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow to Pokémon Sun and Moon. Pokémon transferred from Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow will have at least three perfect IVs, and have their Hidden Ability.

Mewnium Z will be distributed to Pokémon Bank users. It will be available until Oct. 2, 2017. The Mewnium Z allows Mew to use the Z-Move Genesis Supernova when held. Genesis Supernova is exclusive to Mew.
