Do you have a problem with the $5 fee for the pokemon bank?

No, I don't have a problem with the bank. I do have a problem with connecting transfers to the bank.


Not sure why, doing it this way allows them to future-proof the transfer issue. Hardware compatibility will no longer be a boundary to transfers as a result of using the Pokemon Bank as part of the process.

I gave up and did the 3DS transfer anyway...

Unless you're an old person with no money because you don't have a job because you retired because you pulled a leg while walking the dog because you're an old person.


Yes, old people are all doomed

i'll put it this way people here are wanting some one with an income of 600 dollars a month to pay 5 dollars a year and yet they can't understand why a billion dollar company can afford 3000 dollars a year.

let's see 1,000,000,000 divided by 3000
333333.333

600 divided by 5
120

since when is 120 more the 333333?

Maybe I'm just groggy, but, why are you using division?

This is my beef with it as well. I don't want to dislike it, I really don't. But I just cannot feel good about them forcing the bank on people that just want to transfer.

I really like the idea of having an online storage area for pokemon, it's a great idea. but the fact that you have to have the bank to even transfer to a different game just leaves a bad taste with me.

to prove a point against your "it's just a drop in the bucket" arguement.

if 1% is considered so little that i can easily afford it then .00000001% is even more affordable to nintendo.

I find this hard to answer...

While I wouldn't want to pay for it myself, I don't see it as a sign of the ruination of gaming, nor do I think that somebody who is willing to pay that is stupid. While I agree with a lot of the criticisms of the service, I find the overreaction and flooding of the board to be childish.

Ok. I got you.

But even if they can afford it, that doesn't obligate them to pay for services they offer their customers.

People are not upset about the $5 yearly fee for the Pokemon Bank.

They are upset at the previous gen transfer process being tied to the Pokemon Bank unnecessarily to get you to pay to use the Pokemon Bank.
