ITT A good thing about Pokebank

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a Pokebank hater, infact, I love the idea. And we even got Box transfering with it. But for those of you who still hate it, consider this:

Pokebank boxes are your personal space, tied to the app you download and not your save file. That's actually confirmed on the main site that states you can use it with multiple games.
That means you can now put away all your pokemon in the cloud, hopefully even with items, and then...

freely restart your game, without losing anything!

Isn't that great? You can use it to get all starters, to get more one-off items, to leisurely restart for Nuzlockes or monotype runs or just to replay the story.

It's not just a storage device, it prevents the games from becoming mere storages. I love the thought of that.

The only people who hate it are moochers who think everything in life should be free.

Still doesn't answer why transferring has to be tied to it. That's the only problem people have with it.

Yes, this is the reason why I love it. Now I donīt have to wait two years for a new game to come out so I can restart...neither do I need a separate console to "trade with myself"

Apparently, direct transferring from DS -> 3DS doesn't work due to technical reasons. Or so has been stated in the past.

Yeah I remember a couple months ago they were actually mentioning issues with it, to the point it was speculated there may have been no transfer system.

Spending $5 a year to transfer between my X and Y games > Spending $130 on a 2DS to transfer between my X and Y games

I'll still need someone else on wi-fi for trade evos but there are people on here who do that as a free service, so I've got all my bases covered.

Are you saying everything about Pokebank is good?

A bad thing about Poke Bank is that if they don't demand certain requirements to use it, it will cut some difficulty in collecting ( where you will be able to get all starters with only one cartridge)...
