    last I knew for Japan, that free month is December. making the reason it's free be because the service just started and they rather not charge full price for 1/12 of a year.

    You don't pay on January 1st of every year, you pay pay whenever your year is up. Say you subscribe on June 3rd, you have to pay again on June 3rd every year.

    If I had to guess, in that short time, you'll have 1 month to download the app for free and use it. Basically like the free trial version of computer programs.

    As with most 3DS downloads, you can either pay with a Nintendo Eshop credit by uploading a store bought card, or just pay directly through debit or credit card for the exact amount.

    The app is free to download, correct? So I guess you have to actually pay the $5 once you try to log in/open the app?

    That's the logical assumption for how this app is going to work.

    My guess is not only that, but the first free month people are talking about (if thats a thing I dont know for sure myself) will start once you download and open the app.

    How would you sort 10,000 Spindas(with the most amount of different forms) in Pokemon Bank?

    Don't even try to catch every Spinda form. There's literally billions of them, and recall that Bank can only hold 3000.

    Also, even though there's over 8 billion forms of Spinda (counting shiny versions), only about 1 million (counting both shiny and regular) variants are available per game. Of course the other zillion or so can be traded over, but as far as capturing/breeding within your game cart, only about 1 million are available.

    Since the App is basically working as a super large PC, I assume that they will, and if not just infect a junk Pokemon with it and leave 1 in your in-game PC.

    I was under the impression the free month was based on the release date, not the first time you use the app. If you download the app in February or later, you completely miss out on the free month. I could be wrong, but that was how I perceived it.

    might have been answered before but can you use the bank service on games like heartgold and emerald.

    Like at the beginning screen select bank and pick certain pokemon to be placed into it. Or do we have to transfer all of them to White and then from there transfer it to X&Y?



    First run Pokemon Y Team - Charizard, Yveltal, Delphox, Floette, Tyrantrum, Sliggoo - Reserves - Talonflame, Lapras, Blaziken, Malamar, Abomasnow

    Second Run Pokemon Y Team- Greninja, Aurorus, Roserade, Mawile, Charizard, Meowstic - Reserves - Mewtwo, Yveltal

    Third Run Pokemon Y Team (so far) - Quilladin, Magmar, Dragalge, Staraptor, Vaporeon, Heracross - Reserves - Haunter, Heatmor, Hawlucha

    I believe it only works with 5th and 6th Generation games. So yes you can't use it with Heartgold and Emerald(as far as we know right now but I doubt they will be able to go back to 3rd and 4th Generation with the system.)

    The 3DS can not connect to any GBA game directly, so Pokémon must be Pal Parked from Emerald.

    While the 3DS can physically play to Heart Gold and 4th Gen. There have been no announcements confirming/deny support of Heart Gold. However, Given that BWB2W2 can PokéTransfer there is less need to have the 4th supported in Pokémon Bank.

    You were under the correct impression. The free month is the first month after the service is released, whether GameFreak opts to give away more free time remains to be seen.

    Nope, it only works with Fifth and Sixth gen games.

    Yes there have. GameFreak has said it only works with Fifth Gen and Sixth Gen games.

    Transport/Bank is only compatible with 5th gen inasmuch that it will let you deposit your 5th gen Pokemon into Bank. It is a one way transfer and they won't be able to go back.

    I wouldn't mind spending the $5 for Pokemon bank but i think the Pokemon company should make pre-paid subscription cards to put in stores (like Microsoft and xbox live) for kids that have those kind of parents that don't like adding another thing to their credit card or don't want to spend time registering.

    Just thinking out loud.

    Pre-paid Nintendo points cards have been in stores in one form or another since the Wii released in 2006.

    I think he's talking about prepaid cards that specifically activate Pokemon Bank, not the general eShop cards. I'd like to see that, that way I don't have to buy a $20 card to buy a $5 subscription.
