Does anyone know when this is coming out exactly and if it will include a built in pokedex to catalog what we catch and place in the bank and what games we can transfer to and from ???
Pokémon Bank is scheduled to be released in North America on December 27 2013. When used in conjunction with Poké Transfer, the application will allow you to transfer Pokémon from the Pokémon Black Version, Pokémon White Version, Pokémon Black Version 2, and Pokémon White Version 2 games for the Nintendo DS to the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games for the Nintendo 3DS.
ok cool ty
so will it be possible to catch all 718 pokemon with those games being the only ones you can trade with ?
Most, but not necessarily all for every person. Take Celebi for example. It was distributed to Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver games. Players who have not imported Celebi from these games to a generation 5 game will not be able bring Celebi into their copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y. Other legendaries such as Jirachi and Arceus may also be difficult for some players to obtain.
