The Pokebank is now available in the European region & Australia.

I've downloaded the application from the Nintendo e-shop, but when I ran it I only recieved an option for a gift of Pokemiles or Battle Points.

How do I claim the Celebi gift?

You don't need to transfer Pokemon, just open Pokebank twice :) –  user68465 Feb 4 at 16:55
    
Thanks @Molly - I've made this clear in my answer :-) –  Robotnik Feb 4 at 20:30
    
If anyone's interested, I actually made a reddit thread regarding this exact topic as soon as pokebank was released for Australia: reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/1wz80u/… –  Haidro Feb 11 at 6:08

You will receive Celebi the SECOND time you run the Pokebank.

The steps I took were:

  • Ran the Pokebank for the first time, agreed to the terms & free trial
  • Chose a gift option (choice between Battle Points & Pokemiles)
  • Transferred some Pokémon to the Bank
  • Went and claimed the Battle Points from the Pokemon Start Menu 'Link Gift' option (screenshot below)
  • Loaded & Saved the game
  • Quit and went back into the Pokebank
  • Received Celebi

I am not sure if you need to transfer Pokemon or simply close and reopen the Pokebank in order to receive Celebi According to a few different reports you don't need to transfer Pokemon at all, just close and reopen the Pokebank - but those are the steps I took.

Pokemon link option on the main menu: Pokemon link option on the main menu
