    So because Sony got hacked no company anywhere else is allowed to do something like this ever again?

    No one is forcing you to transfer Pokemon though, so it's all completely optional.

    Really? Wow. My DS Lite couldn't connect to the internet so I never got a chance to experience dream world, hopefully hidden abilities and stuff will be accessible somehow in X and Y.

    But depriving people without friends who played Pokemon or the money to afford a second system of the ability to transfer Pokemon at all wasn't cruel? This is the vastly better alternative.

    They are a business and they're trying to make money. However, $5 is nothing to complain about. Most companies would ask for more just because they can. They're also using the small amount of money to improve and expand the service.

    Clearly didn't look into this. It's a service that requires constant updates, checks etc and therefor needs money put into it. They aren't forcing you to do anything, you don't have to transfer Pokemon to X and Y.

    I might not have to rely on the paid part. I dont have much to transfer over. SO i may only need to rely on the free trial.

    Perhaps GF can figure out an alternative but for now, this is what we shall have.

    Don't like it, don't use it. Seems pretty simple to me. As for it getting hacked. Everything has the potential to be hacked - I wouldn't use that as a 'negative' point against this new venture.

    I don't think I will use it straight away but I probably will at some point, later on down the line. Price is very good.

    So your saying if I want that torterra that I trained and raised myself through 3 generations then too damn bad? Out of all the solutions to this, "Deal with it." is a pretty BS one. doesnt matter. aiming for free trial. never looking back.

    I'm seriously amazed that people are complaining about having to spend five dollars a year on this service.

    You could pay for that by just saving up loose change.

    I'm not sure why you'd want to transfer. If you get a new generation game you raise new Pokémon. You can still play fifth generation games. Wifi isn't going anywhere.

    Yup. Everything from a simple game to a government computer has the potential to be hacked. Just because it could happen doesn't mean it will.

    Um, it's only possible to train it through two until Transfer is released.

    It needs to be maintained, so the other flaws doesn't ruin it, and it'll last for gens.

    Some people don't want to catch older gen Pokémon again in the new games and would find it much more easier to transfer their older ones.

    I have no problems with the way GF is handling Pokémon Bank and am just grateful there is a way to transfer older gen Pokémon, especially for the elusive Pokémon, namely event legendaries.

    As stated before, Sony and Microsoft aren't bending over backwards to keep older games alive, so why can't Nintendo do it?

    Yet here they are offering a service that they do not have to. It's fine though people can not use it and horde all their pokemon on X or Y and eventually never start over and essentially have paid $40 to play a game once while the rest of us will pay $45 and happily be able to restart the games over and over and over again without having to worry about losing our Pokemon.

    $40 for one play through

    $45 for endless amounts of fun

    It's just so hard.

    They could've not let you transfer period! Like in Gen III... they didn't have to do this. Cloud Storage costs money and Nintendo will probably spend millions to get it working. $5 a year is pretty damn good

    Exactly. And last time I checked, Nintendo havent had any major (if at all any) hacking scandals in their history.

    Naturally they'll have server backups too, just like any reputable cloud server will.

    What we're saying is that being able to transfer Pokémon is a privilege, not a right.

    That, and people have EV trained Pokemon and shinies, and I'm sure nobody, myself included, would rather do that again in the new games. Seeing as I hunt for shinies, I'll probably need to subscribe for that service down the line, but whatever.

    Whoa, wait a minute. I know what you mean with this, I'm pretty sure the lack of Gen 3 transfer was an entirely different issue. I don't think this can quite compare as nicely.

    The part I don't understand is why making people shell out cash every year was the best idea they could come up with. Why not just let people store their Pokemon on the SD Card, instead of having to f*ck around with servers? Why am I paying for 100 Boxes worth of Pokemon storage every year if I'm only going to realistically use maybe seven at most? If the free trial is to let people have time to transfer their 'mons from Gen V carts, then what if I catch something on Gen V after my free trial expires and want to transfer it? Why do I have to pay for the server space I'm not using?

    Why not offer a free offline version, and only charge if people want online storage space? Why not just ask for $10 up front like MPR did, rather than make people pay $25 dollars for over five years just for them to not lose their Pokemon? Who thought that charging people an annual fee for this kind of service was a reasonable idea at all?

    dunno. why would gf suddenly abandon games they make remakes of? plus ya know...all they do is pokemon...i guess they could just abandon older games.

    It's just so hard.
    unless X and Y becomes skyrim i doubt i would have THAT much fun playing it over and over again. i guess i dont find linearity fun twice. then again we havent seen the game.

    What we're saying is that being able to transfer Pokémon is a priviledge, not a right.
    Why? It was something that was built into the game. It was part of the game.

    Well I mean, what do you purpose they do? I mean you can't really just "they should do this and this" without actually pointing out how you know that would work with hardware and why it would work. As far as we know, this might be the best solution they have.

    I just thought of something regarding the whole hake thing: does hacked pokemon include pokemon you caught using a Gameshark(or what that little device you buy in stories is called) or something or just pokemon whose stats and attacks are all messed with Also how will it filter those that are haked. Will it be you can't transfer the box because of 1 hacked pokemon or will that 1 Pokemon not be transferred while the other will be.
