    Everyone Can Go to the Pokémon Bank

    If only actual banks didn't have transaction fees and allowed one to store one's adorable but deadly monsters for only $5 a year. Sure, we don't earn interest from the Pokémon Bank, but it's not like we earn much interest from real banks these days, anyway.

    Does that mean everyone will be online this week and I can finally get the 3rd safari pokemon from everyone who beat the game and never was online again? I LOVE POKEMON BANK WEEK!
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    One of my Wednesday first graders was proudly showing off his Jarouda (Serperior) yesterday. His daddy helped him set up the P-Bank.

    I have now given myself 30 days to finish my White 2 single-type Elite 4 challenge before everybody goes in the Pokebank and over to X/Y.

    Man, can you imagine if we did get interest from the Pokemon bank? We'd have fractions of a pokemon in there, it would be terrifying and probably a bit messy.

    I'm dead set on getting that support log finished, but one of my friends wants to battle me using mine and his older Pokemon. Time to download the bank.

    Gotta say, there are some baffling design decisions in this app, largely centered around the lack of touchscreen support and ANYTHING to do with PokeTransporter.

    The lack of touchscreen support is driving me nuts. I keep trying to tap the arrows next to the box to scroll through my collection.

    But if they did offer interest can you imagine what they could get away with?

    There is actually interest in the Pokemon Bank - you can get PokeMiles or Battle Points ingame for Pokemon storage.

    This is true, though I'd say they're more like a rewards point card than actual interest. I totally appreciate the BP, though. I can get those TMs a lot faster that way!

    I'm considering transferring almost all of my Pokemon from Ruby version onwards, just for those points. I don't do much in those games anyway, and it might give me a reason to replay them. I still haven't caught the roaming Suicune in LeafGreen, come to think of it...
