PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I just bought a used copy of Pokemon Sun and the original save has a lot of progress and some great Pokemon I wouldn't want to go to waste. I'm a longtime player but I have never used Pokemon Bank, can I transfer those Pokemon into the bank then start a new file and continue to send Pokemon from the new file (but same cartridge) into the bank as well? Thanks and sorry if someone has addressed this already, I couldn't find the thread if it exists. From what I could gather online the answer seems like a yes, but if someone who has Pokebank can confirm I would appreciate it.

A long time Pokémon player without poke bank? Dude...
That’s why I buy all my game cards 2nd hand. Not only are they a lot cheaper but you can transfer anything left to your own game. Btw poke bank makes it easier for transferring events to other games (I was able to transfer my Hoopa from an event to X from Oras, otherwise impossible without poke bank). Poke bank also allows you to transfer over Pokémon from previous generation. (Such as Arceus).

Yeah. This question has already been asked. Anyways, poke bank is one of the best ways to transfer Pokémon from game to game by yourself. (With 1 DS Console) . Yes, if the Pokémon aren’t hacked they will go into the poke bank first. I belive the poke bank is a must have for any Pokémon players with gen 6 and 7 games.
