For $5 a year, It's very reasonable. I can't wait to be able to transfer my old Pokemon to X, I wanna test lots of strategies and teams. Does anyone know if Pokemon like Azumarill will be able to be transferred over, since their new type and yeah?
But seriously, folks, I wager that it's easier to crack the 3DS's communication channels and set up hacked battles than it is to hack the system/game itself. That's how e.g. Pokecheck works; it doesn't need to hack the game when it can just mimic what the game is communicating with.
Any insight on the following info posted on the Pokémon Bank FAQ? I'm not sure what this means. Also see the bolded part... Does this mean if I play Pokémon BW/BW2 on my 3DS and perform a bank transfer, I won't be able to use BW/BW2 on any other 3DS/DS I own?
Will I have to transfer my Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID when I want to transfer Pokémon from these older titles to Pokémon Bank?
If you want to continue playing Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 on a system from the Nintendo DS family (and not on your Nintendo 3DS XL/3DS), you need not worry—there is no need to transfer your connection ID.
On the other hand, if you expect that you will continue playing Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 on your Nintendo 3DS XL/3DS, then you will need to transfer your Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID.
Please note, however, that once you transfer your Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID from a system in the Nintendo DS family to a Nintendo 3DS XL/3DS, you will be unable to transfer your Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID to any other system from the Nintendo DS family, including other Nintendo 3DS XL/3DS systems.
FYI: Warnings when changing Nintendo DS systems
Please also note that Poké Transporter is an application that you can download only onto a Nintendo 3DS XL/3DS that has also downloaded Pokémon Bank, and it cannot be downloaded to any other system in the Nintendo DS family.
You can use Pokémon Bank with a Nintendo 3DS XL/3DS system that has Pokémon X or Pokémon Y inserted into it or downloaded onto it, and Poké Transporter can be used on the same Nintendo 3DS XL/3DS system with Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 inserted into it.
Well I'm not going to be transferring any of my old pokemon because I simply refuse to have to pay for the privilege to do so. I'm not even interested in storing pokemon online, I just wanted to transfer my old pokemon like I could do in the past for free :(
You could get your parents to pay for the service, too. Then Pokemon Bank would be 'free,' just as link cables and consoles were 'free' when our parents bought them for us in the past.

Your entitled to your opinion as I'm entitled to mine but I'm not going to pay for something that I think is wrong, even if sticking to my principles on this only ultimately ends up with myself missing out on something.
You're entitled to your opinion, but don't pretend transfers were previously free. That's just delusion. The closest a transfer has been to being free since Gen 3-4 is the free Pokemon Bank trial.
Oh, you'r enot forced to pay for the transfer. You get that month long trial after you first download Pokemon Bank. If you're just transferring once, there you go: completely free.
I really don't care it's a paid app, at least we are getting some mean to transfer our gen V poké over to gen VI. Unlike the Gen II -> Gen III thingy :/
