Nintendo is getting ready to unleash the Pokémon Bank service on December 27, and a new video highlights some of the uses of the downloadable software.
The features, via Nintendo's press release:
· Deposit, withdraw, and manage up to 3,000 Pokémon in private boxes online through an internet connection
· Transfer Pokémon from multiple copies of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, including the downloadable versions, using one Nintendo 3DS system
· Transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2 to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y using the Poké Transporter, a linked application received when you download Pokémon Bank
Download Pokémon Bank and its linked Poké Transporter app between launch and January 31, 2014, and you'll get a complimentary trial pass that's good for 30 days of use. After this period ends, Pokémon Bank will run you $4.99 per year.
