Pokémon Bank Has a Free Trial Period

Game Freak has just announced that you’ll be able to transfer all of your Pokémon from the fifth generation to the sixth via the combination of Poké Transporter and Pokémon Bank, but seeing as Pokémon Bank requires an annual fee, some are worried that they’ll have to pay to play as their favorites from Black and White on X and Y.

Have no fear, Pokémon trainers! Game Freak has announced via a press release that there will be a free trial period for Pokémon Bank. If you decide you don’t want to keep the service (which lets you store up to 3,000 Pokémon), you can download the free trial, make the transfer, and let choose not to renew it afterwards.
