Store & Transfer Pokémon Online With Pokémon Bank – Plus InstaCheck & Battle Analyzer Patch


Nintendo has this week announced the introduction of an internet cloud storage system for Pokémon X and Y, Black and White and Black and White 2 versions, which will enable users to store up to 3,000 Pokémon in their own online space. Called Pokémon Bank, the system will include a Pokémon Transporter feature, allowing for easy movement of Pokémon between games.

For the first time ever, Pokéfans will be able to shift their monsters from one game version to another with just one console, rendering the process of moving your Pokémon around quicker than it’s ever been. Though the Bank is only compatible with the last three Pokémon generations, it should hopefully eliminate problems with transfers to any future Pokémon games. An annual charge of £4.49 for the service will help to ensure it can be maintained and regularly updated.

According to the Pokémon Bank website, transferring Pokémon through the transporter will create special events in the Kalos region, as well as awarding you Battle Points, a kind of alternative to PokéMiles which can be exchanged for TMs and items in the game.

In addition, a new Pokémon X and Y patch has been released to resolve data interception problems with the games’ InstaCheck and Battle Analyzer features. The patch will also fix bugs which caused Pokémon to stop learning new moves after evolving through Wonder Trade, and prevented the unlocking of captions for Trainer PR videos in Lumiose City.

Pokémon Bank and Pokémon Transporter will be available from the Nintendo eShop from 27th December. The service costs £4.49 per year, though a no-charge free trial period will be in operation until 31st January 2014.
