Pokémon Bank Update 1.2

After much suspense, we now have some details about the upcoming Pokémon Bank update. Pokémon Bank was shut off around the time that Pokémon Sun and Moon were released. Now we have details in regards to how transferring from the eShop download titles (Generation 1) games: Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow will work.
