Serebii.net Pokémon Bank/Poké Transporter/New XY Stuff Discovery Thread
Posting this now in order for me not to be rushed when the coverage does begin in the next two days.
This thread will be where myself or other members of the staff will post our discoveries within the game. We have a good team once more so should be able to ace everything again
I'll keep you posted on all the discoveries we make, minor and major and I'll be constantly updating this thread and the site, with major stuff on our social media sites. However, like the past discovery threads, this thread is just for us posting so please use the following discussion thread, which is the same thread as the previous coverage;

Downloaded the software, activating the 30 day free trial but the service is getting hammered already so coverage will be at a slower pace while I transfer things

Currently attempting to reach the eShop to download Poké Transporter but the eShop servers have massive load so this may take a short while

You get shown details of the 30 day trial pass when you log in, and it prompts you to extend it by subscribing

This is that screen. Seen it a few times since the eShop keeps error coding me
25th December 2013, 12:25 AM
eShop keeps booting me as I try to connect to download Poke Transporter so please stand by
25th December 2013, 12:36 AM
Poké Transporter is downloading. Only 27MB but the eShop being rammed, it could take a while
25th December 2013, 12:39 AM
Got it, connecting in it now, though this will be an elongated process due to how the servers are. Apologies.
25th December 2013, 12:42 AM
Poké Transporter appears to be struggling with the server load. It keeps throwing me back to the title screen.
I imagine we will have a similar scenario on Friday

Entei does learn Sacred Fire through the move relearner
25th December 2013, 12:56 AM
Now it's just instantly error coding.

Box 1 transferred. Probably should have screenshotted that.
25th December 2013, 1:08 AM
Poké Transporter only gives you the option to transfer Box 1. Now Box 1 is empty, once I empty the transport box, I'll see if it automatically shifts to Box 2
25th December 2013, 1:10 AM
You get 100 PokéMiles or 10 Battle Points for transferring a box
25th December 2013, 1:11 AM
Now getting error coded again
25th December 2013, 1:16 AM
You need to move Pokémon into Box 1 in the Gen V game to be traded. There's no changing it as far as I can tell. It just booted me out because Box 1 was empty
25th December 2013, 1:27 AM
Still having issues getting everything. This is getting beyond the point of ridiculousness
25th December 2013, 2:02 AM
Got three boxes transferred so far. Taking a lot longer than it should.
Contemplated going to bed (1am here), but it'll be worse in the morning
25th December 2013, 2:04 AM
For those wondering...the summary screen
25th December 2013, 2:16 AM
Time to see if it'll transfer partial boxes
25th December 2013, 2:24 AM
Oh yeah, though it was known/theorised already, so far on all the Pokémon I have transferred, I have seen no type changes outside of Cottonee/Whimsicott
25th December 2013, 2:34 AM
Final Box has transferred. Now I need to attempt to get all onto my game
25th December 2013, 2:48 AM
And, after almost 3 hours of transferring and around 3,000 error codes, I have the Pokémon I desired
Hiker gives you all four drives, not splitting across the versions. According to the hiker, Genesect is "rumoured" to have been found in Glittering Cave.
The five meteors are irrelevant. They aren't red herrings or anything. Each meteor will cycle through: Normal > Attack > Defense > Speed and loop round

The entry animation for N's Pokémon doesn't exist
