Pokemon X and Y Pokebank release date hits new low

By Alan Ng - Jan 13, 2014

We are now at the start of another week and unfortunately there is still no sign of a Pokemon X and Y Pokebank release date for US and UK gamers. Nintendo are remaining silent and we’ve noticed that some naughty users online have decided to take the delay into their own hands.

It goes without saying that Nintendo are really stretching out this delay now. We have been keeping you up to date with the latest progress on the Pokebank, but at the time of writing it still remains unavailable for download for all users outside of Japan.

Twitter can be a cruel place sometimes and we have the latest evidence of that below. One user has attempted to tease everyone in the worst way, by posing as the official Pokemon channel. The image above attempts to trick everyone by ‘confirming’ a February 29 release date for the Pokebank.

A quick glance at your calendar though and you’ll see that there is no such date this year. Is this really what some users have resorted to after waiting for official information from Nintendo for so long?

Hopefully this is the week when we will finally see the content available. Until then though – take all rumors with a huge pinch of salt.

Are you preparing your old Pokemon for transfer as soon as the Pokebank and Poke Transporter go live?
