    They'll probably let you access it as soon as you can trade Pokémon.

    I'm kind of hopping so too. I've been getting both games in each Gen because every now and then I like to restart the games for fun. But I don't like to lose my Pokemon, I want to keep my in-game teams as well as the event Pokemon.
    If you can just put them all in the Pokemon Bank and restart the games with no problem then later get your Pokemon back. That would be the best

    It's pretty much guaranteed that this will work as the site even says:

    If the worst were to somehow happen and you lost your copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, your Pokémon would still be safe and ready to be withdrawn to a new game if they were deposited to Pokémon Bank!

    I went from being neutral about the feature to loving it in the past 10 minutes.

    Well played, Gamefreak, well played.

    If they can't spare $5 for Pokemon Bank I highly doubt they can afford $40 for the game.

    Except you're not paying for something that was originally free. Yes, transferring has been free, but this is also extra storage, all of which (Pokemon Box & My Pokemon Ranch) have always cost extra. And they even cover that with the free month trial version. Don't care about storage? Transfer all your 'mons in the first month and you're golden. A pretty damn good deal, I'd say.

    Let us begin.

    Hmmm, it basically kinda screws over anyone that only wants to be able to transfer, by making something that was previously free cost money.

    But yeah, it is not all that much money.

    I have always bought two games to solve this problem. I have always played one all the way through and then store all my pokemon on that one game. then the second one I would play for the rest of the time and transfer to the first Game. So in a way I used that first game every generation as a Pokemon Bank. Now I'll just use Pokemon Bank so I can play both games if I want to.

    To those of you who are afraid that GF will charge for DLC: They won't! Masuda has said that they won't charge for DLC. The Pokémon Bank isn't DLC, it is an app, just like the Dream Radar was. If Masuda says DLC will be free, it will be!

    Admittedly, it would be nicer if you could simply transfer Pokemon without needing to use the storage. The $5 storage thing is fine, but since you need to use it to transfer, transferring itself doesn't exactly feel "free." There is the one month trial, yeah, but there will be some people who will want to transfer things after that period ends and don't want to pay for the storage service. It's a minor hypothetical issue, but one that's somewhat justified. I'm just a little annoyed that we have to wait until December to use it. I'm probably just impatient with that, but I don't want to wait so long to transfer my Pokemon.

    Yes, why do people always forget Masuda said that? If he says DLC will be free, then there's nothing to worry about.

    Then they obviously can't use it for the moment, but oh wait....they can just use the free trial. Isn't that nice. GF making things optional, if only everything about Pokemon Bank was optional...oh wait.

    I thought I was the only one that did that. Now we can just use Pokemon Bank as storage which is awesome not to mention up to 3,000 pokemon instead of the usual limit they have. . Only bad thing is I already bought a 2ds so I have two devices to trade back and forth using the infrared connection. Oh well. I guess it will helpful when my 3ds has to be recharged and I still want to play.

    I do something similar. I buy both versions and use one as a main game, like do post-game things/do Frontier-like things/occasional wifi battles/etc. The other I use to replay continuously, not only for fun, but to learn about using new pokemon/strategies.
    But with the Pokémon Bank, I will....honestly, do the same thing, but when I transfer over my (hundreds of) pokemon, I will have somewhere to keep them :P.

    I'm willing to bet that part of why transferring Pokémon from Generation V to X & Y is cloud-based is that Game Freak is trying to nip this hacked Pokémon issue in the bud. This way, Game Freak can easily check Pokémon against an up-to-date blacklist that they can update at the click of a button. Instead of making a completely separate cloud system for this, they integrated the transfer system into the Pokémon Bank so that hundreds of Pokémon could be transferred all at once without capping out the in-game box limit (probably about thirty) while still cross-referencing the Pokémon with the official banlist. Plus, it is quick, simple, (dare I say) intuitive, and it has no gimmicky minigame to go along with it.

    In addition to this, the Pokémon Bank can mass transfer Pokémon between copies of X and Y in a matter of minutes without having to catch a million Patrat and trade each one, one-by-one. It can serve as temporary storage for all the Pokémon on a save file you want to restart, without requiring a second game. Plus, it allows you to do all of this with only one Nintendo 3DS system, and it puts a standard system in place for mass transfers to Generation VII when it is released. AND it eliminates the need to own a Nintendo home console in order to access a mass storage service. AND it allows people to offload their eggs and captures from their search for perfect Natures and IVs off of their game, eliminating the need to periodically mass release Pokémon to conserve space (to an extent). AND it allows you to search and sort under parameters such as Nature, Marking, Gender, Type, and Pokédex number.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, AND it allows you to get all three (six?) Starter Pokémon onto one game without the need for multiple copies of the game or multiple systems, much more quickly and easily than ever before.

    A thirty day free period and five dollars a year after that nets you ALL of this connectivity and functionality, AND it allows Game Freak to make online play much more fair and MUCH more enjoyable.

    EDIT2: Plus, if you happen to have a Deluxe Set Wii U, every fifty dollars spent on eShop content generates a five dollar eShop code that can also be used on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. BAM, covered.

    What I'm trying to say is: I approve, Game Freak. Please, carry on.

    We all wanted a poke transfer and now we got one but yet complaints about it being for five bucks? It's better than 2 DS's amirite?
