See Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter in action in this trailer

Pokémon Bank, the stand-alone Nintendo 3DS app that allows Pokémon X/Pokémon Y players to transfer and store Pokémon online, will be available Dec. 27, and you can see what it looks like in a trailer Nintendo released today.

The app lets players store up to 3,000 of their Pokémon in private boxes in the cloud. Pokémon Bank comes with Poké Transporter, which allows longtime Pokémon fans to transfer Pokémon going back to 2011's Pokémon Black/Pokémon White into Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.

Players who download the Pokémon Bank app from the 3DS eShop by Jan. 31, 2014, will be able to use it free for 30 days, after which point the app will require a $4.99 annual subscription.
