Download the Pokémon Bank App and Get a Free Celebi

Posted on December 18, 2013 AT 08:23am

Nintendo has announced that Pokémon X and Y players who download the free Pokémon Bank app will be gifted the legendary Pokémon Celebi for free.

Players who access the Bank before September 30, 2014 can get Celebi. What’s even better is that the Pokémon is “also available during the free 30-day trial period,” according to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, so users don’t even have to subscribe to the $4.99 a month annual fee to get it.

The Pokémon Bank app will be available from December 27 and allows players to store up to 3,000 Pokemon for an annual fee. A free Poké Transporter app will also be available on December 27, with which players can transfer their Pokémon from Black and White and Black 2 and White 2 to Pokemon X and Y.
