I know it's their solution for a transfer app, but transferring from old games to the new ones didn't have to be behind an online banking system. They could have just put a transfer from B/W to X/Y app for free on the eShop and had the banking stuff be a separate service. Based on Nintendo's past experiences with an online account structure, I have such little confidence in their ability to pull it off well. I definitely won't feel confident leaving my collection on their servers for too long.

At least they are giving the trial period for people who just want to transfer and not store.
