Contrary to what information you may be reading online, we can still confirm that unfortunately the Pokemon X and Y US Bank release date is not yet live. There are some amusing reports being spread by other media suggesting that the service is live, but Nintendo is yet to go live with Pokebank leaving everyone waiting in the process.
It goes without saying that until Nintendo or Game Freak states otherwise, the wait goes on for the official Pokebank release date in UK and US. We all want to start using the Pokebank after the December 27 delay, but Nintendo obviously has a good reason for keeping everyone waiting.
There are some lucky users out there though who have access to Pokebank from the initial Japanese launch. Servers were up for a few hours, allowing some users to download Pokebank before the global eShop servers went down – taking Pokebank offline again.
The majority though have nothing, and the lack of communication from Nintendo must be killing some of you. You have been making your thoughts clear to us in our previous Pokebank update here, with many not happy with Nintendo for releasing in Japan first.
Let’s hope that Nintendo will make everything right and also offer a free Pokemon such as the Inkay Japan event, to make up for the long delay.
Remember: Some false rumors online are saying that Pokebank is now live, but it isn’t.
In the meantime, give us your thoughts on the continued wait. Do you think it will come next week or not?
