    -Generic comment about not using the Bank because it costs-

    I highly doubt it's going to cost much. Ł10/$15 at most. And if millions of people use it then they'll easy cover the servers costs.

You can't maintain something like this and not charge for it, cloud tech is still expensive and they need the money to run it so they can continue to use this one system for transfers for the indefinite future. If you don't like it, vote with your wallet and don't buy it.
    As long as there is a free Poketransfer method, then that is what I will do. I have no interest in this system at all, and yet I've spent a *LOT* of time to get the pokeys I have, and I will want them on Gen 6. If this is the only way to transfer, they're kind of forcing everyone into it, which is really lame of them. I get that the cloud mechanics can cost money, but they don't interest me. 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.

    "It was also revealed that Pokémon Bank & Pokémon Transporter prevent hacked Pokémon from transferring."

    This is great. It will also work has hack check to make sure all my Pokémon are legit (those that were traded).

    Transporter comes with Bank, it's the only way to trade cross-gen it seems.

    Okay, paid cross gen transfers is pretty much complete ********, that's one of those things that shouldn't be paid for in the games.

    Agreed
    But there is a free trial
    So we can just use the trial, transfers all and then don't purchase

    As its name recalls, it's a BANK... banks charge you for their service. And i think it's fair enough to pay for an additional service like this one, you wont only use it in gen 6 but in gen 7 and on...

    Well guess those legendaries on Black aren't going anywhere then. It's kinda crappy when some people have had to use modifiers in order to actually complete the game and now it's almost like being punished for being a single player - I know it's just an unfortunate side effect but still. I'm assuming that a Pokemon that was bred from a WPM-hacked in one will class as legit? Sorry I don't know how it determines what's "hacked" and what isn't.

    As has been said, there's a free trial period you can use to move all your pokemon over and get them into your X/Y and then you can be done with the system

    Then use it during the free trail period I'm sure you'll be able to transfer Pokemon from Gen V to VI during that time.
    But honestly I don't see what the big deal is, it's only going to be like $5 a year.

    You do realize that cloud storage costs a lot of money? And that it contains hack-checks? And that Poke Bank is paid and Poke Transfer isn't an annual fee, just a 1 time?

    I wonder if the trial will have a transfer cap on it.

    Way to take advantage of the system. No precise detail on how the trail works right?

    I'd just like to point this out for those of you getting your backs up about Pokemon Bank.

    1) You can feel free to not use it.

    2) You're not going to lose your Pokemon from B/W/B2/W2, so just use them on those games still, if you love them so much.

    3) Perhaps some of you aren't old enough to know this, but Gold/Silver & Crystal had no way to trade with Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. So its not the first time cross generational trading hasn't been in-game.

    Even though the website doesn't say it, didn't the video say that it is an annual charge. If it is then my 5-15 bucks would be worth it.

    How I'm sure most people feel:

        Spoiler:- Image Macro:


    I don't think they'll pull something like forcing you to pay to transfer your Pokemon. There must be an option for transferring then straight to X or Y using but not actually storing them on the cloud.

    As long as the service isn't extortionate (i.e. more than Ł10), I'll have no qualms with it. The cheaper it is, the more people will use it and the more likely it'll still be supported in five years time and not go the way of My Pokemon Ranch.

    So wait, you would have wanted to pay for something that is now free. Alrighty then...

    Again, you don't have to use them if you don't want to.

    Hey guys. There's a free trial period for Pokemon Bank shortly after release. If you desperately want your pokemon to be transferred then do it during those first few weeks/months and never look back.

    It's 500 yen a year in Japan - that's about Ł3.

    I'm loving the idea of Pokemon Bank and Transfer. Storing up to 3k Pokemon, It has hack-check which is fantastic, and only the Bank will have the annual fee which at the most could be $15 but most likely only $5.

    Thank you Serebii.

    So for those not mathematically qualified to know this;

    That is easily 1/50th the cost of you buying a 2nd Nintendo 3DS.(The only other way to trade, that there could've been).

    &

    1/80 of buying a Nintendo Wii & Pokemon Ranch during the D/P/Plat generations.(the only other option for large storage)
