Eek, I just noticed the irony in the name Pokemon Bank; not only does it store your Pokemon, but you have to pay for it so you're essentially putting money in Gamefreak's bank account. I wonder if that was done on purpose. Anyway, all joking aside, I think they could've easily made that Pokemon Transporter thing without the cloud storage. I mean if all we want to do is transfer Pokemon, why do we have to purchase the cloud storage software? I could understand Pokemon Bank costing money because it's like Pokemon Box, but the transporter should be separate and free since it's essentially a cross-generational GTS. I hate that the only way to get the transporter software is to buy Pokemon Bank.
