    Look forward to a free trial period after the launch of Pokémon Bank. Be sure to try out the software for yourself during this time to see everything that Pokémon Bank has to offer!
    -The XY Site

    Just transfer all the Pokémon you want during the trial period and you don't have to pay a cent. Besides, I'm sure Game Freak thought long and hard about charging for this service. I'm certain that a circa $5 annual (as in, per year) fee is only what they deem absolutely necessary to beef security on this service and cover development and maintenance costs. Game Freak has never intentionally screwed us in terms of money in the past, and I highly doubt that they'd begin doing so now.

    I was disappointed by the direct. We got the information we were expecting, how to transfer between gens and that was it. I personally don't like mega evolution and have no intention on ever using them so the new megas were a waste of time for me.

    Well it looks like they're still finishing the transfer system so it probably won't be fully ready once the games are released.

    I'm well aware, trust me. But having to pay for something that is normally a free service in game is borderline extortion. I'd like them to clarify exactly how this works when it comes to transferring Pokemon from 5th gen.

    You don't consider $15 for Pokedex 3D Pro "screwing people over"?

    I sure as hell hope so.

    I mean I like the idea, however there needs to be some kind of free method of some kind, since I doubt I will use this "cloud" idea very much. I want directness, if I want my Pokemon stored on the internet, fine, and for future generations, fine, but I don't want to deal with that right now.

    Although if I get a job, I won't care about it as much.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    Wait, I'm confused. The news said that we will have to pay for bank storage and that it will come with Pokémon transporter. Does that mean there will be a separate app called Pokémon Transporter for transferring Pokémon for free?

    I'm pretty sure if you don't pay the fee and your Pokémon are in the box they will keep them there until you pay.

    I've had two 3DS' for about a year (ever since the 3DS XL came out). So it wasn't going to be any extra cost to me initially. Oh, just like PokeTransferring USED to be.

    I'm glad i'm not really that much into transferring all my pokemon to the newest game. So i won't be using the bank with its annual charge. yes, its not much, but i still dont see the value in it, i'll just train the pokemon from new and trade for the ones not available in the x/y games.

    Feel free to add me for friendsafari, just make sure to PM me so i can add you back

    500 yen is about Ł3 so about $5. Assuming the prices are uniform. Which seems pretty reasonable for a yearly fee.

    Poke transporter is the app that will allow you to transfer pokemon from be to poke bank. Once there you can transfer over to xy

    Not everyone has or can even afford a second 3DS, so they'd be SOL without the service that costs infinitely less.

    But YOU are all prepared so the service should cater to YOU and your ability to have two 200 dollar consoles readily at your disposal

    Hang on, can Pokemon Bank be used as a faster way to transfer Pokemon between a copy of X andf a copy of Y, saving a huge amount of time and meaning you don't need a second 3DS?

    Yes, I don't think there's anything stopping you from using this as a means of mass trading.

    I would assume so yes. It would be rather humiliating if the service couldn't trade to and from 6th generation games.

    Yes, you can send while boxes to your bank and then access it from another game

    Okay, I am seriously flipping out over the news .
    Not only do we get transferring, but we get a cloud-like storage system that allows people like me who only have 1 3DS to trade between X and Y!
    I am so very excited for this. (even though part of it is paid....). But who knows? It could really be worth it.

    I knew that I would wake up to good news.........................................:P.

    That has possibilities. Of course Infrared Trading is just as easy but will see if I use it that way.

    This is beautiful. I can now purchase the download version worry-free, full knowing I can use the bank to move any Pokemon I want to any new games that come out!

    Looking back to when I first got Platinum and I had to move my Pokemon from Diamond through trading (and catching many Bidoofs and Starlys in the process), this is a dream come true!

    Of course the question now remains if items can be transferred from Gen V to Gen VI. I somehow think the answer would be yes, as long as Game Freak have learned from their item index mistakes between Gen IV and V!

    I play games but mainly Sonic, Zelda or Pokémon...
