    My daughter was very excited to stay up until midnight last night and try to download the Pokémon bank. However, once she connected (after lots of Error 005-4040) the eshop said it was "Available at your local retailer". Everything I read says it is download only software.

    Probably a false message due to Network maintenance.

    nintendo was in a rush when they pulled it, they must has pressed the wrong button

    they pressed the "Available at your local retailer" button
    they should of pressed "Coming soon to eShop" button

    "Postponed due to a large amount of traffic"

    That makes sense, I'm sure every five year old kid is feverishly accessing the eshop with their Christmas eshop points..

    Thanks!

    PokeBank for the Japanese 3DS is still a bit high in traffic.

    Despite knowing better I see ""Available at your local retailer"" and I think Nintendo might have invested some real time and effort into making an online service.

    Maybe one day.

    Rumor is that it was pulled due to people getting hacked mons through (there are threads/blogs on other sites about this).
