Will Pokemon Bank carry over to Gen 8?

EDIT: Yes and we will have Pokemon Home

I don't see why it wouldn't make a return. That said, it'll probably won't be made official until a later announcement either via CoroCoro or some other trailer than the one we were shown.

Absolutely. I imagine it will take a while to release a Switch version of the app for the service (that and it took a while for it to be compatible with Sun/Moon too), but it'll definitely be returning.

Personally hope so, but the Switch port needs to be reworked, like enabling drag and drop, or something, since Nintendo Switch is a hybrid handheld console.

Also, for pricing, please keep the annual subscription and not adapt the Switch Online functions, otherwise it's going to be worse.

If it does my question is how we can get pur pokemon on the 3ds pokemon bank to the switch pokemon bank
That’s been on my mind as well. Ditto on if we’ll be able to transfer Pokémon from LGPE to bank as well.

I can imagine it will take a few months to release, but yes I for sure see Bank coming back.

Almost certainly, as the entire point of the bank was to future proof the storing and transferring of Pokémon. As to how they'll do it, since our Pokémon are stored in a cloud based system, I bet they could find a way to connect/sync our banks to our Nintendo accounts on Switch (possibly by updating Pokémon Bank on 3DS to allow us to enter our Nintendo account details), and then it would just be a matter of installing Pokémon Bank on Nintendo Switch.

I believe it will, but the only thing I'm worried about (and I have no actual knowledge of when or how it could happen), but won't they eventually stop supporting the 3DS' internet soon? Like they did with the Wii? Or is that something completely different and the 3DS' internet will still be in tact for years to come?

I say this because if it isn't, and they stop supporting it, our Gen 1-7 Pokémon are essentially stuck in there lmao, because Bank would need the internet to transfer the Pokémon right? Someone help me understand what would happen or how that would work pleasee :D

I really hope so. I'm working on a living dex in my bank at the moment and only 22 from completing. I want to be able to transfer them all to the new game when I get it!

Can you migrate Pokemon past multiple gens?

By that I mean would it be possible to migrate Pokemon from XY directly to Sword/Shield? (and skip Sun/Moon entirely)

I'm asking because I have loads of Pokemon I've migrated up to 6th gen but I never got around to migrating them to Sun/Moon.

I would imagine so using the bank as you can currently do this by skipping X/Y and putting them straight into Sun/Moon from older games.
