    That's awesome! I'm glad we only need a 3DS to trade between X/Y/"Z"/"remakes".

    If the annual fee is something like 10 Euros I might be interested in renewing it yearly and actually using it. If it's any more than say...20 Euros I think I might find it hard to justify year after year.

    500 yen is like roughly Ł3, €4, $5. If the prices are uniform it's a dirt cheap service people.

    Not too bad. So what still don't understand. Is Pokemon Bank online as in its something on your 3ds (that you get in the E-Shop) that connect to the internet or online as in like the Dream world where you have to log on to a webpage.

    The new Poke Bank and Poke Teleporter thing is neat. The only thing that puts me off is the annual fee, but $5 a year can't be that bad.

    The Mega-Evolutions of the Kanto Starters are pretty good.

    It is an eShop app that accesses the cloud through the 3DS. No webpage required (although I'll bet there'll be some way to check it on the Global Link).

    Good. That means all I will have to do is get a Eshop card at my local story to pay for it. I don't like doing credit card stuff online for things like that because you don't know who is on the other end recieve that information.

    I agree with you here. The $5 a year is not too bad.

    I still want to know how this hack check works, it's the only thing that could put me off. How does it decide what's legit? As I've said I've used a lot of WPM codes but if I breed them is the egg recognised as legit or what? I know it sounds dumb but I have no idea how this works. Single player problems.

    Well isn't there an alternate way to utilize Pokemon Bank. I mean if some people are worried about the cost then they can just share the cost it along with there friends for a single account.
    Or else ask a friend to help him transfer his pokemons from the 5th gen to 6th gen by first trading his pokemon to that friends 5th gen game who would upload it to his account and then transfer it to his 6th gen game and then trade it back to you.
    I know thats a long and round-about way, but that is still a possibility for those who can't pay for Pokemon Bank.

    Well, technically speaking, Pokemon Bank isn't in the game, so yeah. What's to clarify? On the main site it says that you insert your 5th Generation game of your choice on your 3DS, open the app, and transfer from your in-game boxes to the Pokemon Bank. It's all mostly online. Not only that, but you can store Pokemon from both X and Y and transfer them to both without needing 2 3DS games.

    I'm rather confused by the complaints here. People asked for transfer from 5th generation games. They got it. People asked for transfer that doesn't require more than one 3DS. They got it. The service will be universal with any and all future Pokemon games. GameFreak had to spend a great deal of time and money to develop something that would not only be cross-generational, but cross-handheld as well. Honestly, paying for an annual fee with a free trial is not a big deal, and this cockamamie "extortion" nonsense really needs to cease from existence. Now sit down, shut up, pay your annual fee, and play the damn game.

    Oh my goodness people, there will be a trial for the Poke Bank that lasts until Jan 31st, transfer all your stuff by then and shut up, it's only 500Yen which is about $5, wow if thats too much for you then maybe you shouldn't buy the games in the first place.

    Yeah I read that post after I had posted.

    That sounds perfect then. I'm glad it's a yearly charge to as opposed to a monthly.

    very interesting reveal to come home on my lunch to lol

    I bet MidnightFennekin is seething right now as he was trying to pin point holes in the rumour which im guessing has just proven itself to be true!

    Mega Blastoise YES! love the design love everything about it!

    also not to sure about having to pay yearly for the bank? also id like to know if the pokemon you send to it are transferable to all Gen 6 games or if you have to pay yearly for both if you have 2 games?

    also great to know they are finally cracking down on hacked pokemon (though not sure how this will affect competitive play) but I guess this will even out the playing field a bit now as people will have to work to get good IV's and wont be able to transfer hacked pokes

    Do you need to pay to use Poke Transporter? I've been getting conflicting information on this since it was announced.

    It's extortion because they're taking things that have been originally been free and putting a price tag on them. That decreases the value of the game.

    It's the principal of being charged for things that bothers me, not the actual price. You're shelling out $45 dollars for something that originally would've been $40, it's a markup for no legitimate reason.

    I suppose the only reason to have the bank is store pokemon on (which is great if you want to move pokemon around) but for all those people who just want their Gen 3/4/5 Pokémon just pay once upload then cancel your sub (you will get a year of transfer out of it at least)

    Bet you dont complain with DLC of other games, it's not like this is a new thing in video games, if you can afford the $40 for the main game its optional to pay $5 for an extra feature that is not part of the game, you are paying for a feature that makes for expanded gameplay..sound familiar?

    Do you think cloned pokemon will be caught by pokemon bank? Are they considered hacks?

Let the people who want it pay for it. I just want access to the old method of transferring that we've had for years.
    So , you would rather catch hundreds of spare Pokemon and trade them one by one to transfer your Pokemon from a previous game ?

    If you're able to buy a second 3DS then 5$ A YEAR shouldn't be too much.

    And there'e always the free trail if you want a one time use.

    I really like how the PokeBank allows you to transfer entire boxes without having to waste PokeBalls or time.

    No more having to catch a whole bunch of Patrats for the sake of getting my old Pokemon into my new game.

    It's not expanded gameplay, though. We've had cross gen transfers in every game since DP.
