Wait, is the annual fee JUST for cloud storage?

Is Box transfer a free part of it, and you just have to pay for cloud storage?

On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

If by "box transfer" you mean the service to transfer Pokemon from gen 5, then yes, that is free. It requires Pokemon Bank to work, though, and you do have to pay for that after the limited trial period is over.

Yes, go ahead, whine about it. Be like everyone else and WHINE ABOUT IT.

Technically, I suppose the answer could be yes.

They are providing a free trial period, whether 5th gen transfers will remain free after that period is unknown right now.

On our side of the spectrum...the fee pays for the cloud and the ability to transfer our old pokemon to our new games.

On the other side...the tiny fee pays for Nintendo's servers, their maintenance and upkeep, power and more.

People seriously need to stop whining. Are your mommys and daddys buying the game for you too?

I wonder how much the yearly paid service will cost and worryingly if we don't pay for the year due to not enough funds on our 3DS while we have Pokemon in the Pokemon Bank will they delete our Pokemon from the server or will the Pokemon stay there in the Pokemon Bank without us being to access our Pokemon even after years after not paying for the service?

It's not monthly, it's ANNUAL

It's doubtful that they'd erase Pokemon or accounts due to inactivity. Probably what will happen is that you'll be locked out until you pay again.

And, as mentioned, it's yearly instead of monthly.
