#1BlissedIgnorancPosted 2/5/2014 4:49:37 PMmessage detail(edited)
Q: What is Pokebank?
A: Pokebank is a downloadable application for your 3DS that will allow you to store up to three thousand pokemon on the internet. Please keep in mind you CANNOT upload with Pokebank, you will need the Poke Transporter application for that

Q: How do I get Pokebank?
A: It is available on the Nintendo e-Shop. Just search for Pokebank

Q: How long does the free trial last?
A: The free trial lasts up to 30 days after the initial download and loading of Pokebank, or until March 14th after which it will become a paid service of $5 a year

Q: How long does the Celebi event last?
A: Due to recent server issues, the Celebi event has been lengthened to September 30th.

Q: Can I transfer eggs or items in Pokebank?
A: No you cannot put eggs or items into Pokebank.

Q: How do I get the Celebi?
A: Load Pokebank up first, accept your prize and deposite a pokemon. Save and exit pokebank. Load it back up and you should recieve your Celebi. Save then open your copy of X/Y, there should be a Link option on the title page before you load your save

Q: I tried to connect and it says server locked? Help?
A: Server locked means your connection died mid-loading last time, it's trying to resolve your connection dying. Check back in ten minutes.

Q: Can hacked pokemon make it through Pokebank?
A: Yes but only legit looking hacks, something with obscene moves or of the like will not pass.

Q: How do I transfer through Pokebank?
A: You cannot, you'll need to download Poke Transporter. Click get Poke Transporter at the start of the Pokebank screen.

Q: Can I transfer from Diamond, Pearl, Plat, HG, or SS?
A: No, you'll need to transfer into Black/Black2 or White/White2 to be able to transfer into Pokebank

Q: Can I/How do I move multiple pokemon?
A: Press start until your pointer icon turns green, then you can highlight multiple pokemon in sections.

Q: Can I move more than one box of pokemon?
A: Yes you may but you can ONLY transfer from box 1 in the Gen 5 games. To transfer more you'll need to move them into box 1.

Q: Since I can't transfer items, how do I get X?
A Please refer to the current link for anything pertaining to event/legends http://www.serebii.net/xy/bankunlocks.shtml

Q: Can I SR for the Celebi or get a second one?
A: Celebi is put directly in your PC so you cannot SR for better stats, and the Celebi is tied to your Pokebank/ID. You'd need to reset your 3DS to factory settings and make a new Nintendo ID to be able to get a second.

Figured with all the topics requesting the same stuff, I'd make a compilation to reduce spam.

Regarding the Legit Check:

There have been numerous reports all day of legit event Pokemon being denied and hacked Pokemon getting through. You can expect an update to Poke Transporter in the next few weeks to tweak the Legit Check so that Event Pokemon are allowed through.

As with the GTS Legit Check looks at four things:

IV Values: If one more more value is too high it will not be allowed through
Moves*: If the Pokemon has moves it can't learn in-game it will not be allowed through.
Place Caught*: If the legendary is caught somewhere outside where it is normally found it will not be allowed through.
Fateful Encounter*: This applies to in-game Event Pokemon Like Dialga/Palkia, Ho-Oh/Lugia and Shaymin. If the Event Pokemon does not have the tag "A Fateful Encounter" it will be allowed through.

*Of course there are Promo Pokemon who have moves they would not not normally learn and are not "caught" in game. To top it off some Event Pokemon do not come with the "A Fateful Encounter" tag on them.

I decided to test the Legit Check about an hour ago and created 4 Pokemon with my Action Replay in Black 1: 2 Rotom, 3 Tyrogue, 3 Arceus, 2 Genesect and 3 Deoxys. The 2 Rotom and 3 Tyrogue passed the check while the 3 Legendaries did not. Of course, legendaries are more likely to fail the check compared to breedable Pokemon. I didn't hack the stats of any of the Pokemon, just the levels and place.

Even so it's interesting. I feel bad for those whose event Pokemon were denied. I will continue playing with the Legit Check to try to figure out what parameters are used to decide "Pass" or "Fail" at least until a definitive list is made and/or Nintendo updates the App.
