The Pokémon Bank (Japanese: ポケモンバンク Pokémon Bank) is a downloadable online application for the Nintendo 3DS that will be available for the Nintendo eShop. It will serve as a complement to Pokémon X and Y.

Due to server expenses, use of the software will require the payment of an annual fee.

The main feature of Pokémon Bank is the possibility of players depositing up to 3000 Pokémon from the games in an online cloud. The referred cloud will work as a PC, and will have 100 boxes capable of carrying, like in a normal PC, 30 Pokémon each. It will feature search options allowing the player to locate deposited Pokémon.
