New Video Showing Pokemon Bank Features

Today The Pokémon Company International released a new video showcasing the features and functionality of the Pokémon Bank, a new Nintendo 3DS downloadable software service for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y launching December 27.

With Pokémon Bank, players can:

  • Deposit, withdraw, and manage up to 3,000 Pokémon in private boxes online through an internet connection
  • Transfer Pokémon from multiple copies of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, including the downloadable versions, using one Nintendo 3DS system
  • Transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2 to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y using the Poké Transporter, a linked application received when you download Pokémon Bank

Players who download Pokémon Bank and its linked application, Poké Transporter, between December 27, 2013 and January 31, 2014 will receive a complimentary trial pass within the application, which will let them experience Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter at no charge for 30 days. After this time period, the Pokémon Bank service will cost $4.99 per year.

Thanks, Pinwheel

  1. Gotta feeling that a lot of hacked pokemon will be roaming the wonder trade and gts after pokebank is released… sigh…

    1. Gamefreak said the hacked Pokemon won’t be able to be transfer threw PokeTransfer. How does the system know which Pokemon is hacked, its in the description of the Pokemon and it says ‘Apparently’

    1. It’s only five bucks a year, is that really so much? Also, there is the 30-day trial that will be available if you get the service before January 31st.

  2. Well time for the metagame to be screwd again just like last Gen. People are going to bring stuff like shiny 31iv in all stats, perfect nature Pokemon like jerachi, Terakion, landourous etc which is impossible to obtain unless you hacked.

    1. I am with you on the legendary pokemon with perfect natures, but having 31 IVs on all status can be achieved without hacking, ya know?

      1. Well not for legendaries and especially not event Pokemon like jerachi, deoxys etc. Example if you go to an event for jerachi the event will not give you a SHINY, 31iv in all stats careful jerachi and if for some reason it did (which not one event in Pokemon history ever did) the amount of players that should own that specific jerachi should be VERY LOW but that wasn’t the case for last Gen seeing as how everyone (a very large amount of people) in the competitive scene had a 31iv in every stat, shiny careful nature jerachi which again is impossible to obtain. that also applies to every other legendary obtained at an event and In game as well (Gen 4 and before)

      1. People use methods that make the Pokemon appear as if they really got it in game so I dont know how they will catch hacked Pokemon like that but I hope the anti hack method prevents ANY hacked Pokemon from entering the game because I dont want another fake and shitty Gen like gen5 where everyone that battled competitively online used hacked mons

  3. Quite looking forward to buying Pokemon x by the way i am new anything i should know besides look forward to barbaric and juvenile language.

  4. I’m at the final gym the 4. Is it just me or is Pokemon Y short and easier? Plus there is not enough team battles.

  5. A question for you wonderful people how do i make my uploaded picture appear here i choose it in WordPress but it still gives me a generic pic.

      1. hmm you noticed yes i have picked that for my other MrL2020 profiles but this one wants to be difficult what do i have to do?

            1. you know enough!!! i have no fucking clue how i guessed you were going to pick paper luigi but everybody knows my secret now!!!! please don’t tell my secret. I’ve kept it this long, its called the shining, have you ever heard of the shining??

              im not going to help you……. i think we can both see that.

  6. Not sure if you all realise this, but nintendo have claimed all pokemon will go through a legitimacy check before being allowed onto pokemon bank, so really, things like legendary shinies won’t be an option until people figure out how to do it on the gen VI games.

    Plus with them just patching the last online cheat, I think hacked pokemon may be a thing of the past, if nintendo keep their game up.
