Default Pokemon Bank & PokeTransporter Now Open!

It's a digital PC for the 3DS that is compatible with 3000 Pokemon. Only works with X & Y. It also works with transferring Pokemon from Generation V games. Basically, it's PokeCloud. It's due in December in Japan. Details for the English release are surely coming soon, so stay tuned!


UPDATE:
It's a paid service. It has an annual fee.

This is a great idea, the annual fee kinda ruins it but it's not a huge service, I mean, it just stores your pokemon, so I guess it will be around 5 euros per year.

Oh, on top of that... ****! I hated the previews generation and I don't have any of the four black/white/black2/white2 games. All my pokemon from older generations are stored in my Diamond... What should I do?

I have no idea. I'd assume you pay upfront.
Still, the Japanese launch price has been revealed. When it releases, the app itself will launch at 500 Yen. I don't know if this counts for the annual fee.

There will be a free trail period, so you can transfer all of your pokemon then if you wanted.

This is exactly what I was hoping for! I've recently become obsessed with organizing my Pok?mon within my PC and the fact that we'll be having 100 boxes through Pok?Bank makes me pretty happy. Also, I've been saying that we needed a way to transfer Pok?mon with only one system, so the Pok?Transporter will be great. It seems like we'll finally be rid of those stupid mini-games you had to play when transferring Pok?mon.

Supposedly, we'll have a free trial until January 31st, and we'll have to start paying then, if we choose to. Being 500? for Japan, it's only about $5/year. Definitely worth the price, in my opinion.

Probably... You will have to pay the one year fee and then never again.

How much is 500 yen?

Well, they stated that it was an "annual fee", which means that you'll have to pay yearly if you wish to keep the service. And 500? is about $5.

The free trial is a great idea. Still, don't they realize that most people will be getting this right when it is put up and they could get a boatload of extra cash if they did away with the free trial.

They're probably doing the free trial for those who don't care about having the extra PC storage, but still want to transfer their Pok?mon into XY. I'm sure a bunch of people would be upset if they had to pay to transfer their Pok?mon and never used the app again.

Well, that is even less Euros. I am OK with spending 5 Euros per year for a Pokemon cloud system but I demand many services. I mean, storing your pokemon online is nothing spectacular anymore, make it beautiful with many services like online trading and stuff.

Since it can be used to transfer between different X/Y games (and future titles), this means I can delete a save file and still use it? If true, I can just transfer every time I want to start a new game.

Well now I can transfer all my Pokemon since my boxes in Pokemon Black 2 are full and I have the shiny charm and I'm unable to hunt for shiny pokemon.

Okay, I watched the direct again and it states that the Pokemon Bank only needs to be activated in order to access Poke Transporter. So perhaps that means that you can use trasporter indefinitely (even beyond the free trial period) without the full service of Bank.

I don't think this will be the case. The way it is described, Pok?transporter isn't a separate service but an add-on that only moves old pokemon into the bank. So once your free trial of bank ends, transporter will be useless unless you subscribe.

I agree with Tekka. From what I understood, Pok?Transporter is an add-on for Pok?Bank and only allows you to "deposit" Pok?mon into the Bank from Gen 5 games; then you can transfer them into XY from there, or leave them in the Bank if you wanted. Without a Pok?Bank subscription, I don't think you'd be able to upload Pok?mon through Pok?Transporter, since you wouldn't have access to the Bank.

Hey, will the Pokemon Bank replace the PC storage from previous games?

Also, would this work with Gen 4?

My Diamond has a good 700 hours of Pokemon collecting.

I s'pose I can transfer those Pokemon into Black. :/

At least, I can still have my Mew, Giratina and Arceus, since they are in my Black. It's gonna be sweet seeing a 3D Arceus!

I don't think they've talked about that specifically, but I highly doubt that'll be the case. As far as I am aware, we've always been given just enough PC space to hold at least one of every Pok?mon (including each evolutionary stage). If I had to take a guess, we should have around 28-32 "normal" PC boxes.

Pok?Bank is just a cloud storage system that allows players to store even more Pok?mon if they wanted to, as well as being useful for transferring/trading Pok?mon. After January, Pok?Bank will cost around $5/year and I doubt Game Freak would try to force you to pay the extra fee if you didn't care about the extra storage space.

What do you think would happen if players had no PC space unless they paid? I believe that would anger a lot of players. However, I do hope there's a way to access the Pok?Bank while in the "normal PC", so we wouldn't have to close the game and open the actual app to view our Pok?mon.

They didn't mention anything about Pok?Transporter working with Gen 4, so I'm guessing you would have to transfer those Pok?mon into a Gen 5 game and deposit them into the Pok?Bank from there.

Regular PC boxes are certain to return, the game just wouldn't work without them.

DPP weren't mentioned as being compatible so you'll probably have to transfer them to Black first.

I'm thinking that Bank will still be used, but not in it's full form for non-subscribers. Like giving them one box to use at a time.

I guess that could be possible, but I honestly don't see it happening. If they were gonna give non-subscribers one free box, they wouldn't have a reason to give the free trial until January. The free trial seems to be for players who just want to transfer their Pok?mon and could care less about having the extra space.

But again, they never said anything official, so we'll just have to see what happens. I could see players being mad about not being able to transfer Pok?mon later on, so getting one box for free would be cool.

It would be even more strange to me that this free trail would be the only way for folks to transfer past gen mons without a fee, leaving folks that buy the game after January no option. I imagine this trail period is specifically for folks to see what Pokemon Bank has to offer instead of being an underhanded way to allow free past gen transfers.

I'm stoked for this. $5 is a nothing amount, which I am happy to pay as they do need to cover the cost of their cloud server - it is much lower than other cloud server thingos (Hi XBox Live) and it can be used with all future games from this point on.

My concern is more with the security of such a feature as Nintendo/Game Freak is a baby in the online account world, and how easy would it be for someone/group of anonymous individuals to hack and take away my precious pokes...how constantly would they be doing back ups, etc. XBox Live cloud has all my save games and I've never had an issue with it apart from the odd connectivity issue here and there, would I be expecting the same kinda service from Nintendo/Game Freak?

Also, I was hoping the poketransfer would work with previous versions too, so not looking forward to moving all my pokes from HG/SS to B/B2

So far, the transfer will only work with Black/White and their sequels, none of the earlier ones. Yeah, I'm not looking forward to transferring my pokemon from Platinum to Black then to the bank either but that's the way of it so far.

Game Freak and Nintendo will likely make the Pokemon stuff a priority, it is their backbone game, the one that pretty much made Nintendo portables a thing. I doubt it will be common for it to be hacked, not just because there would be no money in hacking it, but also because the companies involved don't want to lose fans of these games.

Of course everything I just said is pretty much just my opinion on the matter, and I am very biased on this. But meh.

It also encourages people to buy the game now rather than later.

There's a lot of people that are upset that you can't transfer items. I don't see what the big deal is. Because the app is planned to be used for future generations, you could end up with items that you shouldn't have yet in a future game.

Is anyone here upset by this?

If you don't play B/W 1 or 2, will you be able to transfer Pokemon from earlier titles like Diamond and Pearl or will you need to go up the ladder?

It's back out in Japan

Maybe we will get it this week! I hope so because those shiny rayquazas on the GTS are tempting.

I'm really hoping that Bank comes out at some point. I have a near box full of legendaries and a ton of Pokemon I need to reset in EVs. Plus I've got a shiny or two I want on my X file but...that's another story.

It's going to take ages to get all my gen 5 pokemon over... I almost wish I had gone digital for X and Y, because at least then I wouldn't have to keep turning the 3DS off and switching games. But once it is finally done it will be awesome.

I've not watched anything regarding how the pokebank and poketransfer actually works, but wouldn't nintendo just let you put in your gen 5 game and dump them all at once or at the least groups of 6? Then they're just there in the bank and you can retrieve them at your leisure into gen 6?

You can move 30 at a time, but you must have an internet connection while moving them, and it's not as quick as that makes it sound. Here are the steps I found:
First download bank, then download transporter through that (must have a gen 6 game on the system to open bank to download transporter). Then make sure box 1 in the gen 5 game has only got pokemon you want to move. Then open transporter with the gen 5 game in system. Then transfer box 1. Then you have to move the next lot to transfer to box 1. Switch games and move the transported pokemon to a different bank or gen 6 box. Switch games and transport box 1 again. And repeat. And repeat. And repeat. ect.

And the delay must have helped the hack check. Hacked pokemon just stay in box 1 while the legits transfer.

If I reset my game will I also delete my bank account (feels weird calling it that :3) or all my poke's will be safe even after resetting X and Y?

It's an online service separate from your X and Y games. If you transfer your Pokemon into the Pokebank and then reset your save files, you can still retrieve them from the Pokebank.

Well if that's true then my shiny darkrai that I got from someone else must not be hacked.

I really regret resetting my Soul Silver, Platinum, and Black 1 save files... >_< I'm trying to catch as many Pokemon as I can for each region to transfer into X. On top of that, I still haven't caught Kyurem and Zekrom in Black 2.

3 transports and bank moves later, I've got most of the Pokemon that I need for either helping with the Dex or competing against others. I still have some Gen 2 Pokes and 2 of my remaining shinies on Platinum so...looks like I'll have to pull out my DS lite from the dust and get to that eventually.

Now that Bank is finally out, I can start full work on completing my Living Pok?dex. I had completed the Kalos section ahead of time and after transferring and organizing most of my Pok?mon in White 2, I'm pretty close to being finished with both Kanto and Unova. <3
