Can I use Pokemon Bank to move pokemon from game to game?

Like if I deposit a Chespin Egg from my X and want to put it on my Y so I can have Chespin/Froakie for starters, could I, or do I need a second 3DS to do an actual trade?

It's like walking up to a girl you really like, going in for a kiss, only to get a casual punch to the face before the kiss.

It sounds like it, but we aren't 100% certain yet.

Well, I won't get both right away, so I guess I have time to find out before pulling the trigger

You can, but you have to beat the E4 first.

you are going to have to transfer to gen 5 games (black and white etc) first and then transfer them into the bank with poketransfer.

We don't know if we need to beat the E4 to use the Pokemon Bank. Since it is an external service, it's safe to say it may be available from early on. Such as when we get the Pokedex or our first badge.

Experience beats bias, but words on the Internet are meaningless.

Seeing as it is an outside service and basically just cloud storage we will probably be able to access it once we access the box.

However it doesn't come out till December and by then most of us will have done the E4 and all the side stuff in the games.

What I mean is that in order to transfer between games, the E4 likely needs to be beaten first.
