Pokémon has become the darling of gamers who even got more hooked with the release of the Pokémon Go in July of last year. Of course, players aim to collect as many types of Pokémon as they can. But as the Pokéfriends start to accumulate, storage may become limited and gamers will need to upgrade it. Enter Pokemon Bank- the solution to all your storage woes in collecting and managing all Pokéfriends.
What is Pokémon Bank?
In a nutshell, it is an online application and service that lets all players deposit, store, and maintain their collection of Pokémon on the Web. What’s even better is that the app can now support Pokémon Moon and Pokémon Sun games so it will become your treasure trove for all your precious gems if you so desire.
The Pokémon can be stored in private Boxes which can easily be retrieved should the need arise. The Pokémon Bank is a dynamic system that is highly useful for players who prefer to collect as many Pokémon of different kinds as they like. It is also very practical to maintain if you are gearing for competitions and battles.
How much will it cost?
Since there is a need to ensure that the service will continue for all gamers, a flat out fee of $4.99 will be charged annually. This fee will be used to maintain the online server that stores all the Pokémon characters and will let users have a smooth experience every time they use the service. The payment will also let the company run and maintain the service for the years to come for future updates. It also ensures that everyone can have access to the online storage.

Pokémon Bank storage capacity
The Pokémon Box and My Pokémon Ranch can only hold as much as 1,500 Pokémon as maximum. But with the Pokémon Bank, you get 100 Boxes that can contain 30 characters for each so you can get as high as 3,000 Pokémon at any time!
Using the Poké Transporter
It is a downloadable app that comes with the Pokémon Bank. Its main function is to let users transfer to Pokémon Bank boxes the copies of your Pokéfriends from the following games:
- Pokémon White 2

You won’t be charged after downloading the companion software so maximize its use by transporting all Pokéfriends as much as what’s allowed.
