During a PokÃ©mon themed Nintendo Direct, an announcement was made concerning the storage of players' PokÃ©mon. The announcement was a new feature named PokÃ©mon Bank, a cloud-based storage system.
The PokÃ©mon Bank acts very much like the PC storage system of the previous games. With the PokÃ©mon Bank's limit at 100 boxes, players can store a total of 3,000 PokÃ©mon. Because of the large max capacity, there are various search options that can be used to find a specific PokÃ©mon such as its Type.
The PokÃ©mon Bank will also serve as a means to transfer PokÃ©mon from PokÃ©mon Black and White and PokÃ©mon Black 2 and White 2 by downloading another app called PokÃ© Transporter. Once the PokÃ©mon of the older titles have been sent into the Bank via 3DS, they can be pulled out into PokÃ©mon X or Y using the PokÃ© Transporter.
While these two features are a great service to players, the PokÃ©mon Bank does require a annual fee. However, pricing has yet to be revealed at this moment.
PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y release globally October 12th on the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS.
