Pokemon X & Y Patch 1.2 Released
Also, a new trailer for the Pokemon Bank service.
12.15.13 - 8:18 PM
Nintendo have released a new patch for Pokémon X & Y on 3DS. The new update fixes several glitches relating to Wonder Trade, PR videos, and also increases security in online communications. Until the game is updated, players will not be able to turn on the internet in-game. To download it, players must have also updated their 3DS to the newest firmware (which you can do by visiting the 3DS eShop).
In regards to the upcoming Bank service, Nintendo have announced that it will now be linked to your Nintendo ID account (which you create after installing the newest 3DS update). In game Poké Miles or Battle Points will be awarded based on how many Pokémon you deposit and for how long. Additionally, there will be a free 30-day trial when it first releases. There has been no word to suggest this trial limits any features, which means those of you purely interested in the Poké Transfer may be able to move over all your old monsters from Generation V without ever needing to pay for the service.

The Pokémon Bank will have an annual fee of 500¥/$5.00 (USD)/£4.99/€4.49/$6.50 (AUD)/$8.50 (NZD). The service will be available in Japan and Korea starting December 25th, while the rest of the world will get it on the 27th.
