Pokémon Link

This article is about the data transferal feature in the Generation VI games. For the game known as Pokémon Link! in European releases, see Pokémon Trozei!. For the game mechanic in Pokémon Conquest, see Link.

Pokémon Link (Japanese: ポケモンリンク Pokémon Link) is a data transferral feature in the Generation VI games. It is accessible from the start menu. Similar to Pokémon Black and White Versions 2's Unova Link, it allows the games to receive gifts and other data from other Pokémon games and apps. In order to receive data from Pokémon Link, the player must have received a Pokédex.

Pokémon Link option on the main menu

If the player has any gifts stored in the Pokémon Link, they will be prompted to decide whether or not to receive them at that time. If "Yes" is selected, all gifts stored in Pokémon Link at the time are immediately transferred into the player's possession (they do not need to be received from a delivery-person). If "No" is selected, the player can receive the gifts at a later time.

Pokémon Bank

Pokémon Link is used for sending gifts from Pokémon Bank to Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.

When the player first uses Pokémon Bank, they are awarded with 100 Poké Miles (which can be converted to 10 Battle Points). This can be sent to a Generation VI game using Pokémon Link.

Over time, the player accumulates Poké Miles based on the number of Pokémon that are stored in their Pokémon Bank (these can be converted to Battles Points at an exchange rate of 10 Poké Miles for 1 Battle Point). This can be sent to a Generation VI game using Pokémon Link.

Pokémon Link is the tool used to transfer event Pokémon associated with Pokémon Bank, including the Pokémon Bank Celebi and the Hidden Ability Pokémon Bank Pokémon.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version, the player can obtain a Glalie or Steelix with its Mega Stone, as well as a number of item rewards. The Pokémon and items can be transferred to Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire using Pokémon Link.
