Pokemon X and Y Pokebank wait with desperate measures

It looks like there are still a lot of angry Pokemon X and Y gamers who are fed up of waiting for the Pokebank release date in the US, UK and rest of Europe. As we await a timely update from Nintendo on the situation, allow us to inject a little humor into all of this, to lighten the mood somewhat.

Although we can obviously understand the anger and frustration, it also has to be said that death threats to Nintendo are well out of order too and uncalled for.

There has to be a reason why Nintendo are choosing not to go public with the problems and we’re confident that the company will be making it up to all Pokemon X and Y fans in due course – with compensation to soften the blow.

While all of the threatening abuse to Nintendo is not nice to see, it’s good to hear that other Pokemon fans are treating the delay in high spirits – one of those being the Team Rocket Twitter page.

With Nintendo not saying a word on the delay in over a month, we have seen Team Rocket resort to ‘summoning’ techniques in order to force Pokebank to appear. We have to admit that we found this pretty funny when we saw it, and couldn’t help but share it with you guys.

Enjoy that picture as you look at all the classic Nintendo consoles and let us know how you are handling the delay.

Do you strongly disagree with all of the abusive messages being hurled towards Nintendo or not?

I don’t see why so many people are complaining about not geting Pokébank. Yeah, its been over a month since we were all supposed to get it, but sIt’s easy f happens and this is a new device for them so of course it may need a little fixing up. There is no reason for people to be getting angry and making death threats over it. I feel like people only really want it so they can feel like an elitist with their shiny or legendary Pokémon when they go to trade. And so what if Japan got it first,… Read more »

Death threats are uncalled for, no matter what. If you’re willing to threaten someone’s life over an app, you are worse then they are, significantly. The wait sucks. But it is what it is. Nintendo is known for stuff like this in regions outside of Japan. I have so many amazing pokemon waiting to be transferred, and although I’m fed up with waiting there isn’t a ton we can do.

Nintendo is an ethnic company. until very recently, Nintendo released to JP way before US… And that goes for most JP companies. Leave it be. It’s like people saying they’re Buddhist or practice Shinto. Those are extremely ethnic religions (like being Muslim) Get over it already; you knew better.

I for one am pretty damn mad that bank still isnt out. Its been delayed for over a month in everywhere seemingly aside from Japan. It seems like nintendo does not care for anyone in areas other than Japan. They still have not even said anything about a release date for the app, and have sent out computer generated messages which refered to bank as a game, not an app, an add on, etc. I think the death threats may be a bit uncalled for, but nintendo has done more than enough to justify them in this situation. If anyone… Read more »

I feel that when a professional company states that it would do somthing then thay should fallow thought with it. I don’t think the threats are out of line simply because that we have been waiting sooooooo long just to so called “play with our old buddy” it’s redicules there losing fans over stuff like this people have givin up on pokemon x and y because of it there sells are going down and for people who had waited so long for the game to come out and then this happends? That’s really professional xbox never had this problem playstation… Read more »

so much for everyone having a pokemon adventure at the same time, and not letting any regions have a head start on others

It was really a huge blunder to not have been prepared enough, or understanding, of the online requirements to properly release it. Yeah, we’ll wait, but there should be no reason for this to ever repeat itself.

If you expect Nintendo to have competence when it comes to online, you’re as much to blame as they are.

They have never ever ever had good online functionality. They never ever will have good online functionality. This is why I’m not getting the next Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Learned that the hard way the first time.

this takes a long time to do so don’t be angry with nintendo just be calm and wait. if you want it so badly lets see you try to make it and we’ll see how it turns out in failure for you. nintendo is taking it’s time to make sure that the bank is at 100% when it’s released. if it’s launched and there are many bugs they will just take it down again. so shut up and stop complaining!

Eh, although I still really want it, I more want/need the PokeTransfer, as I’m working on my Pokedex. I would recommend this for everyone else, as it’s a little more challenging then you would think. It would be nice for even a date, even if it’s not for a month or two.

i will never have Japanese friends in my friends list anymore well i use to but i daleted them because they wanted my shinys 6 gen and trade there legends which they can always HACK

Honestly idont really care for pokebank, I really want the poketransfer and I’m quite sure that’s what everyone else’s problem is. Imean if they are two seperate apps why not release poketransfer first then bank as you work out the kinks? Imean in Pokemon X and Y there’s Plenty of space to transfer.

It’s become practically an inside joke to me and my friends. Such as “Geez what took you so long were you waiting for Poke bank?” Wanna hear something funny?….Poke bank.”

I don’t think the US deserves pokebank. between the hacking and the whining about about. And even if Nintendo somehow finds us worthy of the app they might not still want to release while people are asking for it out of fear of crashing the eShop again.

japan population is slowly decreasing in a population pyramid the reason is women don’t want kids because they could lose their job and career its a FACT they even have a video of what I am talking about so for example there is only going to be one Japanese kid in school but he will be smart etc.

I do think people should calm down and not bug Nintendo on every single post but the lack of information is frustrating to be honest. I’m sure they have a reason though. I imagine that they want to do a quiet release so that everyone isnt trying to get on at the same time.

do you really expect less from angry fans I mean hell people were shot over Ps3’s in America do you really not expect them to not flip out at a month long wait that’s being released in other countries. its not so much the anger of not having it but there’s ways to make people feel at ease, throwing free games on e shop like four swords is kind of an insult to be honest, cause they think giving us something we care nothing about and keeping information that would easily calm the madness. you mind as well be spitting… Read more »

Sadly….I kinda been waiting for it so long..that I forgot about it. I am sure Nintendo have it own reason for the delay. Just chill ppl and play some other game.

Jeez, death threats? What is wrong with people? I’m as frustrated as anyone about pokebank not coming out but there is no excuse for death threats. Just play something else or something.

inb4 no compensation is given from Nintendo upon release…

But really yeah, I’ve complained enough, I’m just going to bubble and stew in frustration until it finally comes out…

Never going to by anything from nintendo again. If i really want it i’ll wait and download it illegal. But yeah, no more money from me.

So… If someone kills Nintendo… will they ever get their pokebank? There wouldn’t be much issue if the games released with something like poke transfer though. Guess Nintendo was desperate for some gross and decided to milk money from players, or did two 3ds to transfer sound like a bad idea? Whatever the case is, I’m sure there’s a perfectly good reason that they need to take so long, and I wouldn’t mind the wait at all, if it involved anti-hacked pokemon measures.

I have pretty much concluded that this is one of those, we aren’t going to give it to you yet because we aren’t. Sort of like Yakuza 5 and SEGA

Joseph

I just don’t understand why that can’t give us updates like: we’re working on it or sorry about the delay! It’s 2014 there’s no reason to go completely silent when your product runs a month late, just openly say that you screwed up and are working to fix it instead of going commando and not telling anybody anything. I feel like that’s why everyone’s mad at Gamefreak/ Nintendo because not many other major companies these days would be this pathetic at PR.

have we all forgotten the purpose of pokemon x/y global release date??? they ruined a companies goals and dreams just saying they dont deserve the patience they are receiving as for the whole country being dumb as a whole look to tmz and extra those will forever do worse for our reputation than anything i can think of

Why the NES and SNES? Neither have any Pokémon games. Besides that, the GB systems all need link cables for this conjuring to be effective. Maybe buy several copies of Crystal just for good measure? It has always been my go-to Satanic ritual cartridge, and appears to work most of the time.

Yeah, I find it immature. It make us look stupid as a whole country, and as thr ill temper fans who acts like little kids. I actually find it disgusting that people will kill others for a game, for something that they’re doing for the geek throwing the threats at them, shows how undeserving we are as a whole. This is why if I had anything to say to father up there, I want another flood, another dark age, I’m tire of the petty humans who’s taken the limited resource they have for granted.
