An annual subscription is to be charged for a new Pokemon cloud storage service for 3DS owners.
Cloud Bank, which was revealed this afternoon in a special Pokemon Direct broadcast, is a 3DS app that allows Pokemon players to store their Pokemon across 100 boxes, each of which can contain 30 creatures.
This total of 3,000 Pokemon can then be deposited and withdrawn from copies of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. It will also be possible for those who played Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 to transfer their previously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.
There's no word yet on pricing.
