    Who noticed that the mini sprites for the pokemon are updated? May just be for Bank, I don't know.
    Currently not playing any Pokemon Games, you can check my Backloggery for games that I AM playing, if you're interested:



    If I'm playing a Pokemon game, I'll have my signature display the game I'm playing, current team, and badge number.

You're being charged for the storage space, and the charge for transfers is a consequence of the transfer needing that storage space. The hack check system is there because hacks are a violation of the copyrights on the games, Game Freak has every right to take action against them.

    I actually think this is a great idea! It can help save some storage and keep Pokémon that you desperately don't want to release. The only thing I'm concerned about is what will happen if the server crashes.

    Yeah from Bank but then it's on the game to be distributed to the GTS or something like that, just kill them off in one spot, that's what GF are doing, they'll either not allow them into Bank or better would be to not allow them onto X and Y once they're in Bank, essentially deleting them, that will stop people cheating.

    Sweet! I always like those nice little touches that don't seem like much, shows how much effort they put, to even fix up stuff like that

    im sure they will be backed up some how

    but to be fair you could just as easily break your game and loose all your data...

    as opposed to just checking the Pokemon when you try to use them online

    That was my point, the idea that they're checking solely for hacks is ridiculous; if they made an offline version that puts the Pokemon directly onto your SD Card, they wouldn't need to charge for storage space. The question I posed was why that wasn't the case, and the conspiracy theory was the only argument that came up against it.

    There will definitely be backups. No way they'd risk having live-only servers without anything as a safetynet.

    Obviously GF went for not having them exist anywhere as opposed to just banning them from official tournaments/online. But why check date every single time their is a tournament when they could do it via the cloud and know for a fact that everything on there is defo legit. Ofcourse this is still dependent on how hack proof the 3DS is, but that's easier to patch than a DS. So in the long run the cloud idea is waaaaaaay easier for GF in the long run.

    This is my issue and my only issue with the $5 annual fee. Otherwise I don't care.

    I shouldn't have to use an internet based program costing an annual fee just to transfer Pokemon when every past generation you didn't need an internet based program to transfer Pokemon, or even store Pokemon in some special extra program.

    The $5 fee should only be applicable in reference to storing your Pokemon in a virtual internet based system, like cloud.

    But why should it cost money (annually) for those who don't want to deal with the cloud?
    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.

    Will the bank be vulnerable to hackers? I'd hate to have someone clean me out.

    My exact mentality, right here. You basically have to pay to transfer Pokemon? Who thought that was a good idea?

    I am disappointed that we can't transfer from 5th gen games to 6th gen games through a facility just like how the 4th gen are transfer to 5th, I don't have wi-fi so getting Pokemon Bank is impossible for me.
    Currently waiting for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and the guidebook(s).

    Currently own: X and Y, Black 2 and White 2, Black and White, Heart Gold and Soul Silver, Platinum, Diamond and Pearl, Super Pokemon Rumble, Ranger 3, Ranger 2, Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time and Dragon Ball Z: Super Sonic Warriors. Guidebooks for Johto games, Unova games and Kalos games.

    Own quite a number shinies, especially in Y thanks to Consecutive Fishing.

    Own all 5 gen event legends in White 2, many came from my brother which I like to thank.

    Will they hack check just check what's being transferred to the cloud (legitimate children of illegitimate parents) or what's in every box on the game (mostly AR'd)?

    It's not hard to pay five dollars.

    Especially when it's yearly.

    It's still a feature that used to be free, and now on a console that has a DS cartridge slot (so it's not like you need to go the ridiculous route of having two consoles like 4th-to-5th gen). On principle, I think the idea of basically charging for an important feature is a load of crap, no matter how little it costs.

    The economy/games industry is ever changing. Things cant be free-of-charge forever :/

    Eventually there will be sacrifices, changes, compromises etc.

    Only it's not really that important. We survived RSE, we could survive another generation without transfers.

    I think Endolise hit the nail on the head when they said

    Everyone can have their qualms about Pokemon Bank if they want, but when you really think about, GameFreak is providing a really awesome service to us and minimal cost. Yes, it use to be free in the past, but things change at technology changes so we have to go with the flow. $5 a year is NOTHING compared to other video games who have DLC, or a annual/monthly service. First and foremost, GameFreak is a business. They have to make money some how, and not everyone who has a DS also has a 3DS yet, so sales may not be as high as expected, so the $5 may make up some costs if there are lack of sales. Even if it doesn't, GameFreak will still stay afloat, but money doesn't last forever. Just like we have to spend money, so do they.

    Many players seem so damn ungrateful that GameFreak has given us such a cool new feature and all people care about is the principal of paying for something that was originally free, even though you had to buy another DS just to trade/transfer in previous games. This saves so much money, and it will take almost 25 years to match up what a 2DS costs, unless some of you are gifted with older siblings who can give you a DS or 3DS for free. I'm glad you guys flaunt that. That'll change people's opinions of you *rolls eyes*

    I'm sick and tired of people recklessly tossing around non-sequitur buzzwords like "extortion" and "principles" without knowing the correct definitions. It's a damn Pokemon game. Grow a pair and move on. Sheesh.

    Price and however they are doing it aside can be considered irrelevant. GF didn't have to do anything like this, you should be glad that there is any kind of way to make the transfer possible.

    There would be back ups and other safeguards in place I would imagine.

    I doubt Nintendo would be keen on the uproar and bad press that would occur if they lost everyone's precious pokemon. At least from a gamer perspective.
