Nintendo has released Pokemon Bank in Europe following its festive delay.
It finally arrived in a few Asian territories late last month.
Pokemon Bank allows Pokemon players to store their Pokemon across 100 boxes, each of which can contain 30 creatures. It costs £4.49 a year.
This total of 3,000 Pokemon can then be deposited and withdrawn from copies of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. It will also be possible for those who played Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 to transfer their previously collected monsters into the Bank.
