    Doesn’t this imply that your NNID will be applied to your Pokemon Bank ID? Or maybe they are one in the same? If so, maybe 3DS NNID is coming before Pokemon X and Y’s release. *fingers crossed*

    I wonder how much they’re going to be charging to host a couple of Kb per person in the cloud.

      The word going around is $5 a year

        Why $5 a year why not just pay $5 to get it and thats it?

        • Linktoreality

          Servers and maintenance cost money, and $5 a year is pretty nice considering they’ll let you keep your Pokemon on their servers for forever.

            What if you cant pay $5 a year?
