Additionally, with the Pokémon Bank's linked application Poké Transporter, players will be able to transfer their critters from Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2 to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.

Using the Pokémon Bank will cost £4.49 / €4.99 / $4.99 per year, but players who sign up between 27th December and 31st January will receive a 30 day free trial.
