Nintendo has finally released their brand new Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter apps in North America, allowing trainers to safely store and transfer their pocket monsters from the last two generations of games. The apps were originally set to launch on December 27, but a lengthy Nintendo Network outage led to a roughly five-week delay.

The Pokémon Bank is a premium service allowing players to hold up to 3,000 different Pokémon across 100 boxes. Pokémon can be deposited and withdrawn directly from Pokémon X & Y, while the Poké Transporter allows for transfers from the Black & White series.

The Pokémon Bank is on the 3DS eShop for a $4.99 a year fee. Those that try the app by September 30 will get the Grass/Psychic-type Celebi to add to their collection.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
