It’s happened to all of us: the dreaded erased or lost copy of a Pokémon game. Hundreds of hours of training, gone. It’s a terrible feeling. But with Pokémon Bank, you can save up to 3,000 pocket monsters online, and they’ll be protected. Today, Nintendo announced payment info and a release date for the app. Pokémon Bank will be available on the Nintendo eShop on December 27 and will cost a yearly fee of $4.99. Think of it as a pocket monster insurance policy.

Will you download Pokémon Bank when it comes out this December? Let us know in the comments below!

    No items allowed in the bank, there’s no info on what happens if your subscription lapses with Pokémon still in the bank, and they can’t 100% guarantee your guys will be safe.

    Transferring from B/W to X/Y could easily be done with a free app, but after January, you have to get the Bank to use that service.

    Truthfully, $5 isn’t all that much, but it really seems like a cash grab, and one that’s barely worth it. I’m a little disappointed. I’ll still probably use the service a little, but still.
