    Looks like Poké Transporter is going to kill the entire Glitchmons metagame, as well as LC Pomeg glitch. Good riddance to the latter.

    I'm kinda happy that glitched Pokemon may not be able to make it across. I sure hope the box is able to figure out which Pokemon are actually illegal.

    Also, is anyone discouraged by the price? I sure hope not. 500¥ translates to about $5.00, which isn't bad at all. It's really like buying a $40+ game.

    It bugs me that they haven't officially acknowledged Mega Kangaskhan, Oorotto and the new Llama mon! Otherwise, a list of Pokemon with MEvos leaked about a month back. It correctly predicted that all the Kanto starters will get a MEvo. So maybe it's legit?

    Yeah but as mentioned before there are pokemon with mega evos that aren't on that list i.e Mawhile and Blazikien.

    Except that it was already shown that Sycamore gives you the Kanto starters... So it's going to go nothing like that. When you get them is unclear, but the wording makes it sound like it's early. But that doesn't mean much.

    I feel like a broken record but Hey!
    Not a list of mega evolutions! At all!
    Trademarks that people believe are indicative of mega evolutions.


    Also they kind of have acknowledged Mega Kangaskhan, which makes the fact it's not on the sites weird.
    I mean like, it's not a secret that got out or anything. Masuda showed it to everyone. Pokemon.com's twitter reported it. They didn't bother taking down any videos. Pokemon Smash showed it.

    At least with llama (which was probably spliced in on accident) and orotto they weren't the focal point of things being shown.

    What's up guys? that's right it's time for SMZ's Pokemon Bank/PokeTransporter review. Brought to you by L'Oréal Kalos. Because beauty makes you go mega.

    So let's get with the main idea. Pokemon Bank is a solid idea. It lets you transfer Pokemon quickly (read: very) and "trade" with yourself and others much easier and faster. Saves a lot of money for a lot of people who buy an extra 3DS or *gulp* a 2DS even just to self-trade.

    The annual fee is a bummer for some, but keep in mind it's a cheap cheap 5$ per YEAR for something that basically outshines Pokemon Box/Ranch (in terms of Storage capacity anyway). I have no problem regarding the bank having a fee, HOWEVER I have a problem with PokeTransporter which is only accessed via the Bank. The PokeTransporter itself is free, but the bank has a fee. There is a free month trial for each user, so in all fairness that's more than enough time to transfer your Pokmeon (unless you want to restart some games to send other stuff).

    tl;dr I like the idea of PokeBank and don't really mind the fee, even for Poketransporter I will abuse the hell of the free month trial, plus with a cheap cheap 5$ per year I think PokeBank as a whole is worth it.

    OMFG, please for the love of god let it be legit! I was JUST thinking about how bad-ass mega-evo latios would look, and now I can't wait to see if GF has it in the works. THE HYPE IS OVERWHELMING!!!!!

    Pokemon Bank sounds like a brilliant idea. Transferring sounds like it is going to be an absolute breeze, thank god.

    Quick question: Can a Pokemon be switched in and out and still be in it's Mega Evolution? (or do we still not know that yet?)

    I hope that those trademarked names won't be the ONLY mega forms we'll be getting, because that's really not an awful lot. It also seems kind of bizarre that Mewtwo would be the only uber legendary to be getting a mega, as well as the johto starters being missed out on.

    Let's hope that those trademarks are just pokemon they had to refresh the rights on for some legal reason.

    Umm...Aurinko wasn't talking about Charizard's usability but about the possibility of another Drizzle user to balance out the new Drought Charizard

    But I kind of want to see another Snow Warning user ^^

    Presumably it can, although whether or not you'd have to trigger another mega evolution upon switching back in is unknown (as is if you would be able to switch it, but really, there's no logical reason why you wouldn't be able).

    >implying trollfreak uses logic.

    The thing I wonder about more is whether the Megas have a turn limit or something. Like say after x turns they revert back or after x condition. I didn't see the movie, but I saw the prologue which showed Megatwo reverting back before the "battle" ends. I know it's the anime, but it's still a possibility this happens in the games too.

    Hope to see a change in how they handled forms when poketransported. The same way they handled Rotom for BW, be good for Shaymin, Giratina to keep there forms without having to hold an item.

    Also Kyruem, will the combined form be available?

    Well if the transfer transfer items as well (certainly hope so). The forms most likely will retain. If not, I don't guess anything will change and we'll just have to wait for the items like we did in BW. Kyurem-B/W will probably stay same upon transfer too. Unless for some reason they restrict that (which would suck) until we get the key item again or maybe a stationary place to fuse/defuse them. Like how Deoxys meteorites work.

    I hope all starters get mega evos.Then everything would be balanced.Its better than giving mega evos to some starters and giving them more importance.

    I hope they keep adding megalutions as a post launch thing, sort of like Dream World abilities in Gen 5.

    Yeah, I think that - especially with Drought Charizard (gimmicky, but nonetheless - an evolution on the switch in of another inducer is huge) around the corner - it would be time to even out the 4 weathers, at least in terms of the number of inducers.

    I noticed a lot of the pokemon they showed in the Poke Bank had ties to X and Y. Some are from 6th gen, some have mega forms, and others had their typing reworked with Fairy. I'm really reaching here but maybe it's foreshadowing on additional mega forms or type changes. Scizor, Gyrados, Haunter, and Houndour are in there.
