Some of the Generation VII games can communicate with games from previous generations. Pokémon Sun and Moon and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon can communicate with the application [[Pokémon Bank]], via which Pokémon from the [[Generation VI]] games can be received. By way of [[Poké Transporter]], Pokémon Bank can also receive Pokémon from the [[Generation V]] games and the [[Virtual Console]] releases of the [[Generation II]] and [[Generation I]] games, from which they can be moved to Generation VII games. Combined with other [[Template:Inter-gen transfer|inter-generational transfer]] methods, this makes the seventh generation the first generation since Generation II able to communicate with all previous games.
