Do not worry if your Pokémon bank stops working; your Pokémon will not be lost🥳 . You will be able to access your earlier-stored Pokémon after the bank issue is solved.

Furthermore, you can still use your Pokémon Home premium service to store and transfer your Pokémon.

Pokémon Home, just like Pokémon Bank, allows you to transfer your Pokémon to many games that are compatible with your Pokémon Bank or home service.

The Nintendo 3DS system was shut down in late March last year. Therefore, you can no longer use it to download games or even use the Nintendo eShop card.

After its discontinuation, Nintendo nolonger supports Pokémon Bank.

This means that you cannot transfer your Pokémon on Nintendo 3Ds system to the Pokémon Bank like before.

However, this doesn’t mean that the Pokémon Bank is shutting down😁. Nintendo stated that Pokémon Bank will still continue to run its online services.

On the safer side, it is best that you use Pokémon Home to transfer your Pokémons.
