Pokémon Bank now live in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand

Posted on February 4, 2014 AT 03:55am

Nintendo has launched the Pokemon Bank and Poké Transporter apps in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

Version 1.1 of the app will require a $4.99 a month subscription fee to use, but a free trial is available until March 14 for those who aren’t quite sure whether to part with their hard earned cash. This latest release follows the apps’ relaunch in Japan last month.

The apps were initially released in Japan on December 25, but were pulled from the eShop just a few hours after launch due to excessive traffic overloading the eShop servers. This led to the North American and European releases of the apps being delayed.

The Pokémon Bank app allows players to store up to 3000 Pokemon, while the Poké Transporter app lets players transfer Pokémon from Black/White and Black 2/White 2 to Pokémon X and Y.
