Just when you thought that nothing newer from the Pokémon series can be released to make it play differently other than to introduce various classes of Pokémon in addition to newer evolutions and powers, along comes Game Freak’s Mr. Junichi Masuda who lit up the gaming world with the announcement of Pokémon Bank, a new Nintendo 3DS application and service which enables both Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players to be able to stash up to 3,000 of their beloved Pokémon – all on the Internet. Yes sir, it will be the real world Pokédex that many folks have been dreaming up of all this while, as the Pokémon Bank would offer players the flexibility to stash and deposit 100 boxes worth of Pokémon.
Make no mistake about it, these 100 boxes will be different from the boxes which are found within Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Other than that, Pokémon Bank will also come with the ability to deposit and withdraw Pokémon from different copies of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Each time a Pokémon X or Pokémon Y Game Card is inserted into a Nintendo 3DS system or the downloadable version of the game is opened, the Pokémon Bank software can then be accessed. You are able to transfer Pokémon from multiple copies of the game through Pokémon Bank to a singular copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y. The Pokémon Bank, like all banks, do not offer a free lunch, so this software will only be activated upon payment of an annual service fee.
