    I haven't played this for ages... I got up to Xerneas [Just about to catch him/her] and then got overwhelmed with EV/IV/Nature paranoia. I regret learning about this immensely.
    I started breeding a perfect charmander, got one with 4 perfect IV's and then just.. stopped.
    Realised I'd already completed the game and couldn't be bothered going competitive, so there was no real use to what I was doing..

    I'm way too lazy to bother with that! Catch them, box them, give duplicates a troll name for wonder trade. Never beaten the game though...


    BTW Reynard evolved...into Sylveon. Now he is next to useless!

    I managed to breed a shiny Charmander using the Masuda method on Pokemon X (i.e. with a Japanese ditto). It didn't take that many tries, but I guess I was just lucky this time. TBH I think shinys are over-rated, I'd much rather have something with good IVs and beneficial nature. That said shinys appear to be much much more common with this generation.

    The Pokémon Bank? It allows the deposit/withdrawal and more importantly transferal of Pokémon from previous generations to Pokémon X/Y

    Yuh, that's hardly fair. 30 day free trial to get everything you depost locked away 'until you pay' Meh! I won't be storing anything in the bank tbh only making transfers to complete my National Dex methinks.

    It's entirely fair. Not everyone keeps an eye on Serebii [et al] so guaranteed there's someone who finds out about it just as it's ending. Plus, there's a lot of stuff you CAN'T get any more. Just moving those, from every game is going to take time. [Not a month, but if you find out about it late...]

    There was no need for cloud storage. There is no need for fees. [~Ł5 per year * number of people that bought the game = WAAAAAAAY more than what it costs to run this.]

    They can remove features for no reason and create this [Pokemon bank] but can't give access to version exclusives and unobtainable 'mons with free DLC. [Free because trading ruins the point of paying for it.]

    It's a Pokéracket if you ask me. The transfer tool should at least be free or part of the game as it has always been for each consecutive new generation. Beyond transferring I have no further need or desire for the bank. I still have a large amount of 'mon including shinys locked away on Pokémon Ranch on a m8s Wii (since the days of Pearl/Diamond/Platinum) lol.

    It's what happens when you have a Pokémonopoly.
