    Honestly this was just poorly planned. And not even Pokemon Bank - I bought Fire Emblem on the 11th and getting in to download DLC wasn't working well the two days after, maybe because of the new Network ID thing they debuted? That's been happening a lot even before Christmas. Then, you combine that with Christmas and people getting all kinds of new Wii U and 3DS systems, getting gift cards and eShop cards, trying to download games, trying to use online stuff AND Pokemon Bank debuting all around the same time in other countries...it was bound to happen.

    It's interesting to me though that it seems the Bank is letting some hacked Pokemon through, you just can't use them in online battles. At least they're doing that much.

    It's only the connection with the Eshop that's been severed, right? So if you have the bank it still works?

    More or less, but as with any new network service, the Bank servers are going to be under pretty high load as well so don't expect things to go completely smooth.

    Well, they could make it up to us if we could get something like...hm...a Happy Hour + Hold Back + Doom Desire Jirachi. Yeah, that'd satisfy me, only available to non-JP/KOR 3DSes over WiFi or something.
    I know, right? Why couldn't the most technologically advanced country in the world and the minds behind the tech world foreseen such a thing occurring? O_o
    Yeah, the rest of the world needs compensation for the delay. A Jirachi (or Mew) will do nicely.

    You guys do realize there are non Japanese players with bank Pokemon right? Myself included. The GTS and wonder trade had Japs giving away some to randoms which lead to other countries (not Japan) getting which lead to massive trades over the Internet.
    So you technically don't have to wait for bank Pokemon.

    Either way I'm still mad at this. It's going to take forever to get the Shiny Charm now. And I had some Dittos ready for underhanded breeding too.

    I got a Chimchar with 4 perfect IVs and ThunderPunch last night on Wonder Trade so you can definitely get them beforehand as long as you spend some time doing Wonder Trade, it just sucks for people who were excited to move theirs. Not to mention I was planning on putting all of my Pokemon in the bank and restarting Y so I can play again but I have to wait until the Bank actually lets me do it lol.

    Actually You can use GTS for a member of each line you don't own.. Still it's going to take some time until you can bring your own Pokémon over.

    How would releasing the bank earlier solve the problem? You do realize that there would be a massive influx of people anyway? Remember when people were downloading XY from the eShop during its release and they either: had an amazingly slow download or they couldn't access the XY page at all. All we can do is say "**** happens" and get over it.

    Also, why would you only make this event for Euro/NA? You do realize that Japan only got the service for a day? You make it seem as if they had been playing for weeks.

    I know I can use the GTS - that's what I'm doing. But keep in mind there's somewhere around 50 legendaries which can only be obtained from the older games that you REQUIRE for the national dex to be registered as complete, and any on the GTS tend to ask for other legendaries anyone without Bank cannot get without extreme luck.

    @Kyurem:

    Releasing earlier would have lessened the total strain on the eshop, so even if this DID still happen the impact would have been far less.
    Well, I'd make the event exclusive to people who didn't have Bank access because, surprise surprise, chances are they won't prolong the Celebi event for international release (and if they do I will be quite thoroughly impressed), so we should get something equally good exclusive to us as compensation. The whole trial restart thing isn't really much when all things are considered.

    Furthermore, they had it for a day. That was still enough for a heck of a lot of what they wanted to be brought up. I'm thankful for those sharing them on the GTS and WT, but now any Dex-completionists are going to be set back a lot if they couldn't get access to this on the Japanese release.

    good luck getting any legendaries through the GTS. That's what I'm worried most about.

    Bank connects to the eShop every time to check your pass. I haven't been able to get it to work since

    Ugh. Once again, severe server overload coming from the Japanese delays stuff for the rest of the world (it already happened with Flipnote 3D, which we haven't gotten yet), and most likely the fact so many people got gift cards they wanted to spend everywhere else. I am NOT going to go looking for an Oshawott in the GTS just because everyone and their mother is asking for legendaries.

    Game Freak/Nintendo should just get more servers to prevent this kind of issue, really.

    Releasing it earlier wouldn't be an option because it wasn't ready beforehand.

    This isn't just Bank causing it. It's Christmas. The PSN was down yesterday on Sony platforms. Nintendo had a higher load than expected with Wii U and 3DS gift receivers setting it up including their NNID which taxes the servers a little.

    Bank is just adding to the problems.

    You don't think this means Pokémon Bank will never be released then, do you?

    Almost certain this won't be the case. The backlash would be utter poison to Game Freak and Nintendo's reputation.

    If something like this only came out in Japan and basically prevented casual players from bringing their personal Pokemon to the new games, people wouldn't want buy from them again.
    If they had a back-up plan for transferring sure. But after all the bank hype I'd be too late.

    "ruby and sapphire sucks because i can't trasnfer my metapod blah blah blah" ( there were other reasons people didn't like ruby and sapphire that isn't a big deal but let's do go to much into that) then they had to remake red and gold just to please everyone

    And now I'm picturing Serebii fronting some weird underground online Pokemafia who operate their own Bank and Mass-Transfer service. Serebii even gets his own suit and fedora!

    Not gonna lie, I'm pretty peeved that I won't be able to bring my favorites to the next generation for the foreseeable future, and I think it's pathetic that Nintendo didn't foresee this happening when they decided cloud storage was a good idea.
