Store Your Pokémon in the Cloud for an Annual Fee With Pokémon Bank

Posted on September 4, 2013 AT 05:11am

In a Nintendo Direct broadcast this morning, Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, and Game Freak announced a new way to store your Pokémon.

The Pokémon Bank will launch alongside Pokémon X and Y on October 12, allowing players to store up to 3,000 Pokémon in the cloud for an annual fee–which wasn’t revealed.

The Bank will be compatible with X/Y, Black/White, and Black/White 2 via the Poké Transporter. Players can use the Bank to transfer their Pokémon from previous games to X and Y.
