Pokemon Bank is complete bullshit.
I’m not mad that I need to pay 5 dollars a year to use it.
I’m mad because I don’t even need the fucking cloud function and they combined the cloud shit and the transferring Pokemon from old generations into a single service. Yeah, we had Pokemon Box and Pokemon Ranch or whatever for that which cost money to purchase which I never even needed or bothered with since I’m not one who tries to catch ‘em all or ever ran out of space for Pokemon in my boxes. And if Pokemon Bank was just that, I wouldn’t be having a problem with this.
The truth of the matter is I am pissed off because they combined the cloud shit and transferring from previous generations into a single service and are making us pay for something that was previously free. It used to be, granted, a slow process transferring Pokemon from older generations, but it was free. Hell, I don’t even have as much time to play Pokemon anymore (…not because I’m busy. It’s because I have more games to play now, whereas in my childhood, Pokemon was like all I played) so how many times will I even use the transfer function…? Once? To get a few Pokemon like my EV trained ones from White? I know it has a free trial but what if I catch a shiny while replaying an older game past the free trial? What the hell will I do then? Nice job Nintendo. Nice fucking job. Greedy ass pricks.
