The Pokebank is a transfer app. In hindsight, it was a really bad idea to release it on Dec 27 when there's a huge influx of new owners from Christmas, it should have been before. They should have just had a migration feature like Pal Park in Gen IV. I liked that better than the mini-game in Gen V.
