Plot twist: Nintendo purposely made the servers not able to handle all the traffic by Game Freak's request so they have an excuse for pulling the bank down.

I've been trying to get access to the eShop on the WiiU for two days now, so I can get my free DLC's and demos. The fact that Pokemon Bank's release in Japan might have caused massively to this congestion seems plauisble, especially since both Playstation and XBOX stores are suffering as well, but not to the same extent.

Also, let's all sit here and laugh at how easy it is to get hacked Pokemon through the bank.

They really need to get their act together if they're going to pull this PokeBank crap just to make more freaking money. And now they make the release date time later... BULL!!! Btw it's Pokémon not Pokemons, saying Pokemons is like saying deers. Had to correct that lol :3

AWESOME! not only is UPS and FEDEX cant keep their promises on on-time deliveries, now nintendo's servers are screwed up. but then lets all be honest here. they were screwed up ever since the release of miiverse and there wasnt a damn thing wrong w/ the servers until THAT showed up on the scene. now w/ the servers down....we wont get pokebank on time. gamefreak better extend their free trial date as a incentive to us or they can forget it on me and a few friends of mine to pay for their cloud-based service that we shouldn't even have to pay for to start with after all the years of being able to use 2 systems in the past. i got a massive team of pokemon i wanted to transfer to my new system so i can be back to having a better team online in ranked battles. but it ooks like that wont be possible now.

I reckon that's partly the reason why they took it down. I bet once they put it back up, it'll be patched so hacked Pokemon can't be transferred.

Pretty disappointing to see this happen, but it probably wasn't the wisest decision to release around Christmas in the first place. Well at least that'll give me a bit (or a lot) more time to get my Pokemon to transfer together.

It's a shame that something like this happened and Nintendo didn't work to make sure such a thing didn't happen. I mean they might have, but they must of knew that Pokemon is just crazy over.

There's another reason as to why PokeBank and Transporter shouldn't have required an online connection.

shymalan twist: Reggie has actually been a Microsoft spy this entire time.

PS: Eshop is still down. Merry Christmas to anyone who got a brand new WiiU and 3DS bundle! *reggieshrugs*

That's really disappointing, but I'm fine with waiting on it.
I'd rather play the games I got for Christmas right now anyway.

The reason is why Nintendo eShop is undergoing maintenance today.
