Why does Europe get it before America? That makes no sense (unless Europe's eShop updates before America's), and I'm even more angry because of it.

It's because NOA is useless. Literally. They generally have no say over this kind of stuff.

*continues waiting patiently* I'm not in a huge hurry to get it, but it would be nice so I can start working on my Living Pokédex and clearing out Pearl.

I have a feeling people are going to start having flame wars since it was released in Europe, but not in the US.

Didn't something like this happen when Black and White were released?

I doubt it. The biggest problem with the Pokémon Bank is that Nintendo and Game Freak have refused to inform their customers of the product's release, while the delay of video games (and Black/White weren't delayed) always comes with announcements, and usually not "it's in stores now" when they finally announce something (unless you happen to have been Sega releasing the Saturn). This whole event has caused their PR departments a lot of flack. Japan was completely surprised by it last month, just like Europe and Oceania were this time, so I'm sure whenever it comes out for North America it'll be a complete surprise again.

I do some soon, but not today or tommorow, because I'm out.

The only reason I can think that the US didn't get it is because that they are testing the new servers on the EU and/or want to ease it out in different areas so there isn't one huge overload of people charging on at once.

The Pokémon Company said that NA should be getting Pokémon Bank "soon." Of course, nothing is specified. I just want to download it so I can transfer everything and be done with this Pokebank mess forever.

Y'know, there are two distinct groups of people who want the bank: those who want it to transfer their Pokémon forward, and those who want it to store more Pokémon than X/Y can hold. Of course, there are plenty of people in the middle, too.

I don't necessarily trust cloud storage for some reason, and with all these delays and issues I certainly don't trust them too much. All I need is one transfer of everything and I'll be set. I already have the Pokedex completed, some extra breeding and it can be a Living Pokedex (minus all forms of Vivillon. Waaaay too much for me.)

I noticed that even with EU having pokebank, i dont see any GTS legends that are not in Japanese. Its like they didnt put any up for trades. (Cause some people do anyways)

It's only been out for a few hours, so most folks are probably just trying to transfer the stuff they need most just in case it goes out.

As for this being released in Europe first, I don't mind. There's probably a smaller population of people there to download it, and this way they can gradually work up to releasing it in America (and all the strain put on the servers as a result of that). As for people who think this is unfair? Grow up. They don't get much sooner than us, so you have no right to get your panties in a bunch.

I want to have my Pokemon forward to complete my living dex, and also because I need more space for my breeding habits... 30 boxes just doesn't seem to do it for me! I haven't decided whether to trust cloud storage or trust I won't lose my game, so I'll have to cross that bridge when I get there...

I thought I'd be happy when this was finally released. But... I feel nothing. Oh well, time to get all the transferring done so I can start my breeding adventure. I've decided to use X version as my Living Pokédex. I don't have $5 to spend a year so I can't really sue it beyond this.

I feel like I've reached salvation. When I get home from school I'm going to spend quite some time checking out my old Pokémon's 3D models...

This day just got a lot better. I'm not even mad that it took a month and a half to come out at this point, I'm just glad it's finally been released.

I actually managed to get the Bank~

It took a few times to connect to the server, but I managed to store 2 boxes of Pokémon in the Bank. Now the next task is transferring all of my Pokémon from BW2.

You cannot deposit Pokémon with items on the Bank. You'll need to trade them to someone else for safe-keeping.

Ugh. I'm just trying to get the legendaries from Dream Radar and then I'll transfer my few pokemon left on White 2. I've transfered 440+ pokemon from White and White 2 altogether and it was such a pain. With Bank out, maybe all we have to do next generation is upload all of our Pokemon to the cloud, insert said 7th gen game and move the Pokemon over.

Great. Now everyone on Wifi is using Darkrai and putting everything on my team to sleep.

Odd, I have a Pokémon that refuses to transfer through Pokémon Bank. The game's hack check seems to think it is not legitimate, when I am absolutely sure I caught it myself without cheating.


Leavanny / Lv. 20 / No item / Male
Quiet / Overcoat / Very finicky.
- Tackle
- String Shot
- Bug Bite
- Razor Leaf
Stats: 62 / 48 / 40 / 41 / 36 / 41
CAT / 23464
5,460 Experience Points
Caught in a Hidden Grotto on October 27, 2012
Used a Nest Ball


My only guess is they forgot to include Leavanny with Overcoat in their exceptions list for Pokémon that can be obtained in-game without Dream World or breeding.

All my hacked Pokémon passed the checks, but yours actually looks legitimate. If you truly caught it then it shouldn't be a stat problem, but maybe just a Hidden Grotto glitch with the hack check. I've heard other stories of Contrary Snivy getting through, so I dunno.

No, you can only access one instance of the Bank from one 3DS system.

This is just a friendly reminder that Pokémon Bank passes are most likely expiring around now. Be sure to renew it if you want to continue using it, especially if you have a lot of Pokémon stored in it and don't use it frequently.

And if you haven't gotten them, the Johto starters with hidden abilities are still available.
