    After thousands of Gifs, complaining and parody twitter accounts, the eagerly anticipated software for trading Pokemon from Black and White [and BW2] has been re-released in Japan.

    Nintendo then went on to explain that they'll be monitoring Japanese player experience as they prepare for the international release.
    Source

    They ended by expressing their thanks for everyone's patience (lol)
    So to answer the question of "When is bank?" Japanese players can scream now, but the rest of us can sigh with relief and know its coming pretty soon

    ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Give bank

    I guess the interest rate in this was just too high.

    So to get the PokeBank, all it took was some PokeWank?

    Well, I can't really blame the fans. They must have been in a state of withdrawal.

    How does one give a bank? It's a physical object.
    I don't know how to explain this better. Please understand.

    well, you can give someone your time, some help, they are not physical objects.
    you can give someone an apple, or a book, they are physical objects.
    if your father owns a bank, and he gets really old, he might give you the bank...
    i don't get it?

    According to Serebii the old bank opened several server connections to the eShop, Nintendo Network AND the bank servers at the same time. So the banks connection method might have just been so bad they unintentionally DDoSed the servers.
    Much the same way one ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Gives DIRETIDE. So yeah, Nontondo pls ;o;

    As long as the Pokemon could be gotten through legitimate means there is no way to prevent them from being imported without potentially blocking real mons.

    Well, if you can make bank, surely it can also be given. It's alright as long as you say "Fees" and "Bank you!"
