Number Of Pokemon That Can Be Stored Is Very Different

The biggest difference between the paid and free plans is that the number of Pokemon that can be deposited increases from 30 to 6,000. The free plan can only be used as temporary storage when moving and transferring Pokemon from one game to another, but the paid plan can be used as a storage location when your Pokemon inventory is full.

Paid Plan Needed To Transfer To Pokemon Bank

With the paid plan, you can move Pokemon from your 3DS software to Pokemon SV using the Pokemon Bank. If you have a Pokemon that you want to use in your 3DS software, consider subscribing to a paid plan.

12 Months Paid Plan Recommended For People Who Have A Full Box In The Game

If your Pokemon SV inventory is full and you're having trouble making ends meet, join the 12-month plan and use it as a place to store your Pokemon. The 12-month plan is much more reasonable since it will be 36 dollars if you pay per month.

Select 1 Month If You Just Want To Just Transfer Pokemon

If you just want to transfer Pokemon from the other Pokemon games to Scarlet and Violet, you can subscribe to a one-month plan and complete the Pokemon transfer within the time frame.
