    I'd like to point out this is roughly the cost of getting a cheap fast food meal. For a year long service. That is super convienent.

    Yeah, when you stop to think about how much other stuff you buy for 5 bucks that doesn't last nearly as long, you realize just how much of a pittance it is for such a useful tool (especially since it supports mass-transferring and moving of Mon instead of having to do them one at a time).

    500 yen a year is an absolute steal when it allows us to circumvent needing two 3DS' to trade or transfer Pokémon from older games. Not to mention, the cloud storage in case of theft etc. You'll spend more on lunch a day than you would on Pokémon Bank in a year.

    My main concern though is - what will it be linked to? Our Global Link accounts or our consoles? Because sure, it's great if our games get stolen that we have these backups but if it's tied to our 3DS and that gets stolen...

    Also, GameFreak could so use this with Gen III VC titles.

    If those 25$ American Express cards from WalMart work then I'll get one of those and have the entire 6th gen covered for the transfer.

    I wonder will Pokemon stored in the Pokemon Bank be transferable early in the game?

    Well, not in the mainline games. But we have in the spin-offs: if you wanted all the dungeons in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, you had to pay for them. I wasn't happy that I had to pay for it but I did it anyway.

    But then again, $5 a year is mere pocket change. I spent around that on a daily basis for my lunch; that's around $30 a month. I can hardly complain about a five dollar yearly fee to store some of my precious Pokemon.

    Mystery Dungeons games aren't developed by Game Freak, though. I really hope they don't start cutting things out of the games to sell as DLC later, like certain companies love to do. Since the 3DS games may be upgradeable, they could use this to balance certain things in the games and stuff like that, for free, of course.

    What would be really awesome is if Pokemon Bank were compatible with certain spinoff games. For instance, imagine after beating a new Mystery Dungeon game you got access to your Pokemon Bank and could copy the Pokemon data stored in there to MD?

    The price is on the Japanese website, 500 yen. Converting that to US dollars, it is $5.06, assuming they'll be the same price. 5 bucks a year doesn't seem bad for a long term contract.

    People have paid for My Pokemon Ranch, people have paid for Pokemon Box RS. The only difference is that those services were marketed as "games" when they were nothing more than a peripheral to the main series. Neither one is useful on its own.

    Question: can this application be downloaded on the 2DS as well?

    Isn't the PokeTransfer different from Pokemon Bank? Like, Transfer is the free one for transering between BW/B2W2 and XY, while PokeBank is storage for XY. Unless I am mistaken and read BulbaNews wrong. D:

    And even then, you technically do already have to pay to transfer Pokemon between Gens. =P You had to pay for the new game and/or console right? (yes that was a bad joke, I'll just slip away quietly now...)
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.
