    King Shuckle Don't be daft

    Poke Transporter requires Pokemon Bank in order for you to use it. Essentially, you use Pokemon Bank to store the Pokemon you get from the listed DS games via Poke Transporter. It's a separate function, and you don't pay for it separately. The only thing you pay for is Pokemon Bank annually.

    McDonald's had free ranch dressing packets in my city for quite some time. It only became recently that they started charging 25 cents for them. I guess that must be extortion too.

    and to be fair it only applies for excess pokemon. the transfer app they already sad is free and will allow u to bring over all ur black and white pokemon anyway. so unless u plan on catching 1000+ pokemon I doubt you'll ever pay a fee or need the pokebank....for this generation atleast.

    Oh god.

    It's either a mistake (Game footage not final) or genderless Pokemon will be removed entirely !

    Yeah , probably a mistake.

    You're being charged to maintain a cloud service into the indefinite future and ensure it's compatibility with pokemon titles for years to come. If you think you're so entitled that that technology should just come to you free than you're an idiot. Cloud tech is expensive and running a system like this for the amount of traffic it will get costs money. Money that's not just going to pop out of thin air. Five dollars is nothing for what they're offering and if you don't like it just suck it up and do it all at once during the trial.

    It's not like it's a webpage that has ad space to generate profit, it's on the 3DS, they'd literally be at an extreme loss if they didn't charge
    BCVM22 and EverChanger like this.

    that's very vague tho. wat qualifies as hacked and how are the concerns

    I wouldn't call it extortion so much as a transfer of who's getting the short end of the stick. Up until now it was the people who either didn't have people to trade with or a second system; the only difference now is that the people who were prepared then have to shell out $5 to do their business. It sucks (but not that much) for the previously prepared, but I'd say it's an acceptable thing. Especially given the future compatibility of the feature.

    Well overall I must say I am a little disappointed at the news. Was hoping for starter evos honestly. Maybe Next Coro Coro.
    I will admit the cloud thing is nice. 5 bucks a year is very reasonable.

    a pokemon caught or created by outside devices is hacked not sure about clones

    Ugghh no Limited X & Y Gold console? That's just a minor disappointment though.... I'll be gettin the Blue one then!

    I have no problem with being charged for the cloud storage services. I have a problem with being charged for cross gen transfers. If I'm paying $40 for a game, I expect to get my money's worth. The game is losing value by taking a feature that is traditionally free and locking it behind a paywall, that decreases the game's value.

    It is.

    ok let me give u a scenario. lets say I have a shiny hack. I can make any pokemon shiny. now I breed my regular charizard with a ditto and produce an egg. but I activate my hack so that whatever comes out the egg is shiny. when it hatches does the game register the newly hatched pokemon as hacked or just a lucky draw?

    I got that part which is why I know my legendaries aren't going anywhere but as I said single player problems. I want to know how hack check works on eggs/offspring of Pokemon caught using WPM codes. If these are still somehow recognised as 'hacked' then I have no use for the Bank for the time being.

    Pikasaur So Fluffy

    That be all well and good, if i wasnt getting X and Y simply for using one of them as storage.

    and that i dont want to add another 5$ on the 60$ a year i already pay another company.
  17. EverChanger

    EverChanger エヴァーチェンジャー

    In all fairness, the Poké Transfer in Generation V required a whole second Nintendo DS system to work. If that isn't a paywall, I don't know what is. :p

    Thinking about it now, this will make such a difference for me.

    I'm always wary about migrating my pokemon because if I have them all on the one cart and I lose or damage it then they'll all be gone. Pokebank would mean I'll be able to access all my pokemon without worrying about losing them.

    Not to mention when 7th gen comes out we'll probably still be able to withdraw compatible pokemon to 6th gen. We could be looking at backwards compatibility in the future.

    Location , level obtained , Trainer ID (for event Pokemon) , Stats , Moves and if it was bred from an egg (for legendaries except Phione and Manaphy)

    For example , a Lv.1 Reshiram that was found on Route 7 is hacked.

    You should check the Hack-Check thread to see if your Pokemon are considred illegal or not.

    Hacked Pokemon are Pokemon created using cheat codes (such as Action Replay), PokeGen, PokeSAV, online Pokemon creators/generators, Pokemon with unreleased hidden abilities, inconsistent moves, abilities, wrong levels, IDs, etc...

    Basically, if your Pokemon is not obtained by legitimate means (in-game capture, born from legit eggs, legit trades, or downloaded from official Pokemon events), then you can't transfer it.
