Nintendo America on their official twitter account announced that they will be launching a Pokémon Bank App on the 3DS eShop on the 27th of December this year.
What is the Pokémon Bank App?
Well the word bank may give the idea that’s it’s a storing place and if you have been a Pokémon fan for quite a while, you may already have many(Black and White, Black and White 2, Ruby and Sapphire Pokémons ). The Bank App provides players with over 100 boxes to store their Pokémons online. Each box will have a capacity of 30 , meaning you can store over 3000 Pokémons from current and previous games, double the quantity of Pokémon Box for GameCube and My Pokémon Ranch for Wii.
With the huge storing capacity you will also get the Poké Transporter app for free, which allows you to move Pokémons from previous generations into Pokémon X & Y. However you can’t bring them over from X & Y into previous gen, and can’t access them separately.
According to the app’s official FAQ, there will be an annual fee of $4.99 meant to help maintain and manage the servers , however you’ll be given a free 30-day voucher. To use the app you have to sign up before January the 31th, 2014.
