I kinda hope it starts shortly after the totally not confirmed January Direct, with some sort of a cooling off period where people can sign up for the online service and get the rewards, while giving those who aren't sure yet a little more time online. Something like Nintendo Online starting in February, then online access requiring a subscription starting April. To me, that'd be the best case scenario. I just really want to see what they're ultimately going with on the games front. The enhanced VC seemed interesting.
I can't wait to see what this online service is gonna be like. Anyone remember the rumors about achievements and more robust friends options? Plus, I believe VC will launch alongside or after the online service. I know that's something a lot of people are waiting on. All eyes are on that January Direct.
having to pay for online just to trade pokemon and battle not many time in a year yeah i don't like paid online because i don't have the best internet so idk if the games going to be smooth or not pokemons going to work no matter how bad your internet is though.
