    Considering ive never traded between generations, Pokebank shouldnt be a big deal for me.

    Did make me realize though, that i wont be able to trade between X and Y like i was planning on (Only have one 3DS).

    When do we recieve the Kanto starters though?

    $5 is really worth it. We;re talking about a hack-free and secure cloud storage.

    For me it's not about the money but about the principle. In fact, I know for sure the majority don't even care about those 5 dollars.

    I do not kno. I for one use only shiny hacks. (just because I was curious of what they looked like and didn't kno this site existed then) but I caught them normally they were just shiny. and does this "gimmck" only work for pokemon obtained in the black and white games? I would assume so since cheats from previous version work differently than current ones. all my "hacked" pokemon came from DPPt. hmmm I just kno if they don't let me get my shiny mewtwo (which may or maynot be legit as I got him from the GTS) imma rage.

    Seriously starting to hope this thread gets closed before it descends into anarchy over the Pokémon Bank annual fee. We've all stated our opinions on it, now it's turning into a game of proving whose opinion is right...

    Problem not solved. Cross gen transfers have always been free forever, suddenly adding a price tag to them is extortion.

    And like I said, the trial doesn't help because I transfer stuff as needed.

    It's less options for the same amount of money, that's the problem.

    Oh it's only $5 annually? That's not bad actually. I was considering just using Pokecheck or whatever to transfer my Pokemon like I do now.

    Poke Transporter requires Pokemon Bank in order for you to use it. Essentially, you use Pokemon Bank to store the Pokemon you get from the listed DS games via Poke Transporter. It's a separate function, and you don't pay for it separately. The only thing you pay for is Pokemon Bank annually.

    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.
    McDonald's had free ranch dressing packets in my city for quite some time. It only became recently that they started charging 25 cents for them. I guess that must be extortion too.

    and to be fair it only applies for excess pokemon. the transfer app they already sad is free and will allow u to bring over all ur black and white pokemon anyway. so unless u plan on catching 1000+ pokemon I doubt you'll ever pay a fee or need the pokebank....for this generation atleast.

    Oh god.

    It's either a mistake (Game footage not final) or genderless Pokemon will be removed entirely !

    Yeah , probably a mistake.

    You're being charged to maintain a cloud service into the indefinite future and ensure it's compatibility with pokemon titles for years to come. If you think you're so entitled that that technology should just come to you free than you're an idiot. Cloud tech is expensive and running a system like this for the amount of traffic it will get costs money. Money that's not just going to pop out of thin air. Five dollars is nothing for what they're offering and if you don't like it just suck it up and do it all at once during the trial.

    It's not like it's a webpage that has ad space to generate profit, it's on the 3DS, they'd literally be at an extreme loss if they didn't charge

    you can just use Poke bank

    Pokémon Bank simply allows you to store up to 3,000 Pokémon within 100 boxes on the Internet, away from the boxes you have in your game. With this, you also have the ability to transfer content between various Pokémon X & Y games.

    I wouldn't call it extortion so much as a transfer of who's getting the short end of the stick. Up until now it was the people who either didn't have people to trade with or a second system; the only difference now is that the people who were prepared then have to shell out $5 to do their business. It sucks (but not that much) for the previously prepared, but I'd say it's an acceptable thing. Especially given the future compatibility of the feature.

    Well overall I must say I am a little disappointed at the news. Was hoping for starter evos honestly. Maybe Next Coro Coro.
    I will admit the cloud thing is nice. 5 bucks a year is very reasonable.

    I have no problem with being charged for the cloud storage services. I have a problem with being charged for cross gen transfers. If I'm paying $40 for a game, I expect to get my money's worth. The game is losing value by taking a feature that is traditionally free and locking it behind a paywall, that decreases the game's value.

    ok let me give u a scenario. lets say I have a shiny hack. I can make any pokemon shiny. now I breed my regular charizard with a ditto and produce an egg. but I activate my hack so that whatever comes out the egg is shiny. when it hatches does the game register the newly hatched pokemon as hacked or just a lucky draw?

    I got that part which is why I know my legendaries aren't going anywhere but as I said single player problems. I want to know how hack check works on eggs/offspring of Pokemon caught using WPM codes. If these are still somehow recognised as 'hacked' then I have no use for the Bank for the time being.
