    A little extreme they can still get the game, just don't transfer your old pokemon.

    It is free. You just need Pokemon Bank in order to use it.

    And back to my point about McDonald's: Should I file a compliant and/or call the police since this extortion? I want my free ranch packets back. Do you think the police and my sole complain will change what a global fast food company charges for ranch? I mean, clearly they are violently and illegally extorting money from me, if the actual definition holds true. McDonald's is intimating me to pay 25 cents for a ranch packet. I am surprised a group of elitist, free ranch packet advocates haven't stormed the halls of McDonald's Headquarters demanding ranch, while costly to produce, be free of charge for all customers. I don't like how McDonald's is threatening me. Clearly a case of old-fashioned extortion.

    You're right. People would rather spend $7-$10 a month each on stuff like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Spotify instead of paying $5 a year for Pokemon Cloud storage.

    Hopefully the starving children in Africa don't catch wind of this.

    I love your post, it has really brightened my day!

    In other news, yay for gen v transfer

    Edit: Also I am so glad that hacked Pokemon can't be used on it. I don't think people should be using Pokemon that haven't been obtained the proper way.

    No more of those shiny hacked legendary pokemons that you see mostly every battle.

    It's $5 a year, right? That's a really great price for this and something Xbox Live can learn a thing or two from.

    I'm happy that you don't even need 2 3DS for this, so that's going to be pretty helpful. I guess you'll be able to transfer over as many as you want, with no restrictions like the once a day thing from the Pal Park or the 6 at a time thing.

    It's not worth the money to me. The only use I have for this system is to transfer. It's not like I breed a lot or anything, the PC boxes within the game are fine for my needs. I'll just transfer my Pokemon from White 2 during the free trial and be done with it.

    I like the way you think!
    I'll be just doing the same; I plan on giving away my Black 2 copy in the end. XD

    This is a good idea though rather than requiring 2 systems, or trading.

    Who cares-people will always cheat.I dont see the problem with it as long as the Pokemon have got the legal stats/moves/abilities etc and they are not being used in Official Tournaments.

    I have used a code device in the past to generate a pokemon I wanted thats only available near the end of the game (Gible for example) so I get it near the start-my reason:I like to feel a bond with it all the way through,especially if I have my dream team in mind. When it comes to tournaments I put them in the box and use my legal back up team.

    Back on topic:
    My main concern with this box thing is its all very well having it and charging for it,but what if the real reason its been released is because there isnt that much PC storage available in game compared to past Generations? Remember,this game will take up more memory than any other Pokemon game before it in terms of the main series

    One question; If I delete my X&Y file and restart the game, can I still have access to my Pokémon Bank account?

    Yeah, I think Pokémon saved in the bank can be transferred to any X or Y game.

    The Bank account seems to be unattached to your X/Y game, just accessible by it. So yes, you would still have access to it.

    As others have argued ad nauseam, they can't do it the old way because 3DS games and DS games can't communicate. They had to find a new method (or didn't have to at all; they could have declared it impossible and called it a day just as easily, really), and this is what they found.

    As for the threat of hacks again, as others have said, it's doubtful that they wouldn't backup all the data so that nothing is permanently lost.

    It couldn't be as easy as BW because GF stated that it was impossible to facilitate communication between a DS and a 3DS cartridge.

    Yes, they stated if you loose the game entirely, you could still access it later on.

    Edit: Wow, double ninja'd. XD

    I will say that as people have said, things like xbox live/Netflix/etc. people are fine with. Therefore if people will buy the games themselves, they could spend the $5 a year for the storage. It really is not that much.

    EDIT: I knew that if I were to answer that guy's question, that I would be ninja'd :P. So I chose not to.

    Some people are gonna have to explain to their parents where that $5 dollar charge is coming from. Some of them won't be happy to hear it's for a Video Game. :/

    It would be better than explaining to their parents that they need a second system to transfer, like it was in the past.

    The way they are doing things with Pokémon Bank is so much better. It's just $5 a year. It would take TWENTY FOUR YEARS for this to equal the current price of a 2DS and don't even get me started on the XL.

    Before you delete your game, you might wanna store some of your Pokemon into the bank. Saves you effort.

    I'm going to assume yes because it's not like the app would be connected to the game itself :P

    Another question: It only requires a cartridge for Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 to transport the pokemon to Pokemon Bank, right? Does it also require a cartridge for Pokemon X and Y as well, since there will be players around the world like me who will digitally download the game via eShop?

    I assume having a digital copy of the games would be OK. Not sure why they'd make digital owners miss out on this.
