Pokebank makes restarting games so much less horrible

#1kingtracePosted 9/5/2013 10:50:34 PM
Now I don't have to shell out for a whole new copy or delete all of my pokemon to play over, I can just plop them in the Pokebank and let them sit quietly while I run through the elite 4 again.

I like this more every time I stop to think about it.

If that offends you for whatever reason, shoot me a PM and I'll correct your misconception.

If we can name boxes, then I'm going to call one a cementary and put all my dead Nuzlocke buddies there.

Scratch that, I'll need 3 boxes at the very least XD

I actually think the poke bank is a great idea I don't see why people are so mad about it. You could pay $5 or around $240 just to transfer games what are people so mad about no one complains about paying monthly for MMOs its the same concept its going to go towards maintenance and work on the servers. I think its great.

I've already explained in another topic why people who hate Pokebank 1:don't like math and 2: abuse the Slippery Slop Fallacy like nobody's buisness. I think it's a great feature and can definitely see myself paying 5$ a year for it.

And I still have yet to see why I should like it when I see no practical use for it and am forced to buy it to use PokeTransfer.

I think we can name boxes. Go to the Pokemon X and Y website (http://www.pokemonxy.com/en-gb/strategy/) and go to the "Move Many Pokémon" section and see picture 2. It says Pikachu's box at the bottom of it.

With that much space, I think I'll try to fill it up with EVERY POKEMON, including alternate forms like Wormadon's 3 types and Shellos and Gastrodon's colors. Number the Boxes 1-30, 31-60, and so on for a living Pokedex that I can refer to if I have trouble finding anything on my secondary playthroughs (assuming I do any, which is likely) and have a whole roster of Pokemon raring to go for multiplayer battles.

Following those, I'll make boxes dedicated to storing my friends' Pokemon assuming they don't want to subscribe to PokeBank themselves.

Don't bother. They're like a series of great walls. At best you can agree with disagree with a few. The rest will never bother trying to see the other side of it.

And starting a new game was never really a hassle for me. I'd have a dozen Pokemon to transfer over at most, and I usually just borrowed my brother's console/game to do it in the past.

actually the main reason i like the p.bank. really the biggest thing holding me back from enjoying the game again has been loosing my old pokemon. this way i dont have to. really though ive wanted a stadium esk, storage device like stadium for a while now, aka one that isnt locked to a specfic game cart. and this provides that.
