Default Pokemon App Speculation

A really cool app for the 3DS would be a "Pokemon Bank" app, that would be capable of storing your pokemon from all the games, organizing them, and not having the limitations of the in game computer maximums. Also having the ability to trade pokemon with those who have the same app.

Any ideas, good, bad? Any rumors on the possibility of such an app already under consideration by Gamefreak? Consider this just an "I wish" thread on the matter.

I've always been really into organizing my PC, but I wouldn't want to use a separate app to view my Pok?mon. Unless XY could somehow access that app in-game without any issues. They normally add more PC boxes each generation anyway, so I don't think we'd need a separate app for that. They always give us enough PC space to store one of every Pok?mon and we already have 24 boxes in BW/BW2. Assuming that they add about 150 new Pok?mon, we might have 28-30 boxes for XY.

Not to mention, it seems like they've added a new "marking", which makes me happy. Looking at this screenshot, you can see that there's a pentagon symbol to the left of the 6 typical markings. It could be something else, but it does seem like a marking and maybe the "active" marks move to the left of the list now. I've started using markings recently, so I would love it if that was the case.

Come on, people. You have to make better thread titles for your threads. "Just pondering". I don't know what to expect with a thread title like that. You could be pondering about what porn pics to post or what other rule to break.

Well, not to view, just to pool and then transfer, viewing just being needed to help that. Basically, instead of coming up with a different transfer system each game, have one unified database that you can send pokemon from one game to, then send them to a different game from there.

As I said, it's really just wishful thinking.

I really suck at thread titles, sorry, that's why I don't make many threads.

What I would really like is an "oak?s lab" app like the one in pokemon stadium, giving an easy access to your pkmn, allowing you to easily change their held items, giving them tm attacks, evolving them, maybe changing their name, or allowing you to see their EV

What intrigues me is your idea about using an app to trade Pokemon. I mean, it's not like I go to the supermarket, stand on a line, and say to myself "gee, I sure would love to trade Pokemon with this guy in front of me, just by using my phone." But if it was possible, it would be pretty awesome. The app would need to alert you in some way when you go near people who also have the app though, because I'm not just gonna walk up to random people and ask them to trade Pokemon with me.

You have to wonder if Gamefreak reads this forum

Lol holy cow you were right on the money. I've been debating whether or not I want to use this feature or not, but for $4.99 a year it isn't that bad (and one month free to try it out).
