[Update] Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter Have Been Postponed

Pokémon fans awoke today with the disappointing news that Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter has had to be delayed for North America, Europe and Oceania regions due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. Japanese fans have been effected as well since the applications have been taken off of the Japanese eShop also.

While it is sad that these services have had to be delayed and halted so quickly after their release, it is understandable. VGU will let you know as soon as these services are back on line so keep your eyes peeled for when the news drops.


Nintendo has stressed to fans who may have already downloaded Pokémon Bank and/or Poké Transporter that the 30 day trials are now paused and will resume after the services come back online. No days will be wasted.

Disappointed with this news? Or are you willing to wait for Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter to come back online? Let us know what you think!
