  • Summary: Pokemon Bank is an application and service for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y that will allow you to deposit, store, and manage your Pokemon in private Boxes on the Internet! Pokemon Bank is a paid service, with an annual charge for usage.

    Pokemon Bank will be a powerful resource for players who
    like to obtain many different kinds of Pokemon, or for those who like to raise many Pokemon in preparation for battles and competitions! The application has a variety of search functions, so you can find the Pokemon you're after among all of the Pokemon you've deposited. Even if you deposit a lot of Pokemon, you won't have to worry about being unable to find the Pokemon you need! Pokemon Bank also makes it easy to transfer Pokemon from multiple copies of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y - including the downloadable versions - to a single game!

    When you download Pokemon Bank, you can also download the free linked application Poke Transporter! When you insert a Pokemon Black Version, Pokemon White Version, Pokemon Black Version 2, or Pokemon White Version 2 Game Card into a Nintendo 3DS system, you'll be able to use Poke Transporter to transfer Pokemon from these games into their own online Boxes. Then, you can easily transfer those Pokemon into Pokemon X and Pokemon Y using Pokemon Bank!

    If we're really lucky, the next transporter app may once again rise to the level of Pokemon Box -- still the best Pokemon transfer program ever made. Until then, we wait.

    Pokémon Bank is an excellent application for the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS that can be used to store up to 3000 Pokémon from Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, White 2, X and Y (although stored Pokémon can only be sent from Pokémon Bank to Pokémon X and Y). Nintendo have stated that it will remain active for future Pokémon titles. It requires an annual payment of a reasonable £4.49.

    Pokémon Bank can also be used to transfer one's Pokémon from any copy of Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, and White 2 to Pokémon X and Y via the Poké Transporter app that comes bundled with it.

    Although the game was delayed due to a "large volume of traffic", the game itself is an excellent way of storing, and transferring all your favourite Pokés to assist you in your new journeys in Kalos (and possibly beyond!).

    In addition, the app also comes equipped with a "hack check". Whilst Nintendo are avid not to reveal how it functions (in order to decrease the chance of people circumventing their will, and break through it), we do know that Pokémon are checked by Nintendo beforehand, and hacked mons are not allowed to be stored/transferred, promising a brighter future for Pokémon fans worldwide who simply want to play Pokémon for fun, and not cheat.

    Overall, a really exciting app, and as aforementioned promising future for the Pokémon franchise!

    Pokemon Bank is a fantastic application to transfer Pokemon's from Generation 5 to Generation 6.
    You can also store 3000 Pokemon which is
    really good if you are a Person who likes to experiment with Pokemon's ability moves etc.
    It's Definitely worth the money as it only costs £4.49 in the Nintendo e-shop.
    The only bad thing about this great application is that if you want to transfer 3 or 4 boxes you have to keep on opening Pokemon black white black 2 or white 2 move the Pokemon you want to transfer to box 1 save the game, next open Poke mover send to Pokemon bank open Pokemon bank and then transfer the Pokemon to your Pokemon x or y box,which can get EXTREMELY time consuming and repetitive if you have a lot of Pokemon to transfer.
    None the less it's a great piece of kit.

    I am very disappointed in this because it is very hard to use and if you fail at connecting once you have to wait for like an hour to try again and considering that the 3DS doesn't have the best wi-fi its very hard to use pokemon bank Expand
