We were hoping to bring you a quick update on the status of the missing Pokemon X and Y Bank US and UK release date, but unfortunately Nintendo isn’t ready to offer this information just yet.
The highly anticipated service was just to arrive on December 27, but as we told you here – it has been delayed until further notice. Nintendo were even unable to offer gamers a new release timeline, and it appears the lack of a new release date has made a lot of Pokemon fans unhappy.
Not only because Nintendo hasn’t given a new release date for fans to look forward to, but largely due to the fact that the Poke Bank and Poke Transporter were released in Japan and Korea first, with some calling Nintendo ‘biased’ which is a little bit harsh in our opinion.
These Pokebank tweets are getting more and more intense. It's as if a war will break out soon because of how much everyone needs it.

The good news is that the problems with the eShop servers that Nintendo initially highlighted are fixed, which should mean in-turn that we’ll all get to play around with the Poke Bank very soon.
As we await fresh details from Nintendo and Game Freak, let us know how you are dealing with the delay. Are you happy for Nintendo to take as long as they need?
We’ve included some Pokemon X and Y Bank gameplay below for those that are interested in seeing what it will look like.
