Arriving as something of a late Christmas present on December 27th, Pokémon Bank allows players to store up to 3,000 Pokémon online, and includes advanced filtering options, making searching through your Pokémon much faster.
Potentially the best part about Pokémon Bank (labelled the Poké Transporter) is that it connects to Pokémon Black & White as well as Pokémon Black & White 2. You can now bring all of your Pokémon from your previous adventures into X & Y!
Pokémon Bank will be released on Nintendo 3DS on December 27th. If you download it before Jan 31st, you can trial it for free for 30 days, after which an annual subscription fee of $4.99 will kick in. Not bad, I’d say!
