Pokemon Bank Delayed In US

the official pokemon logo

Nintendo has today confirmed that the launch of the Pokemon Bank has been delayed in the US due to the influx of traffic to the Nintendo Network. The company has assured consumers that it will get the application up and running as soon as the issues with the eShop have been resolved.

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have postponed the launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter – two software applications that were originally scheduled to launch for Nintendo 3DS on Dec. 27 – due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. Due to the high traffic, players are having trouble setting up Nintendo Network IDs and downloading content in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. We truly regret the inconvenience, and wish to reassure everyone that providing a solution is our top priority. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.

  1. As aforementioned, while the service is active for those in Japan that already have downloaded the app, the app itself has been pulled off from the Japanese eShop, and on the Western eShops we have a placeholder. The Nintendo Network will be offline for 12 hours today in a desperate attempt to try and resolve the situation. 21:00-09:00 GMT is the time you need, so work out when that is for your regional time zone.

  2. I was able yo login to the e-shop now, shouldnt the app be ready to download then?? As the description to this post says, the app should be available when the e-shop is working again, and it is working for me.. This makes me angry.. :)

  3. The last Eshop application delayed was Flipnote, and we all know how that went. I have had no problems with the Eshop since Christmas and to be honest I think this is a ploy to buy them some time to fix the app from the hackmon.

    1. This is an easy fix. Each Pokémon has a legal movepool, EV spread, and ability. Just block those that don’t meet that criteria. It won’t stop RNG’d Pokémon; Those are impossible to stop (by definition, an RNG’d Pokémon is as legal as any Pokémon you encounter in the wild). It’s all database tables. They could fix that in two days easily.

      No, this is purely based on Nintendo Network issues. People need to realise that Nintendo had a great Christmas, which is why everything’s grinding to a halt.

  4. I have defiantly been having problems with Nintendo servers. I got the 3DS XL for Christmas, and it took me about 3 days to transfer all my data from 3ds to XL. Error code after error code. I can see why this is being delayed. Nintendo needs some new servers for Christmas. :)

    1. I’m interested in possibly getting either, but I have to know your friend code, too? Is that how it works? My friend code is 4313-1249-5334. Not sure if anything I could trade would interest you, since I have not dabbled in breeding or “shiny” Pokemon hunting like some of the more “serious” players have, but I will have some Pokemon from White 2 and Diamond that might be of interest once Pokemon Bank is available.

    1. Celebi will still be going on, you just have to register before September or something like that. But yeah, I don’t think they’d stop that.

  5. They really should have prepared for this, especially since they know what the sales figures were for the game. It probably would’ve been better to launch it OUTSIDE of Japan first, cos Japan definitely has more players than other countries. Ah well, I saw this coming. Hopefully it doesn’t get delayed forever, cos I was looking forward to transferring my Pokémon over.
