Pokemon Bank Release Date Late February [VIDEO]? Conflicting Reports Continue As Nintendo Delay Reaches Two Weeks
By Robert Kuang | January 10, 2014 09:19 AM EST
It's been two weeks since the Pokemon Bank was released and quickly taken off the Nintendo eShop, and rumors continue to swirl regarding a new release date for the service.
Recently, a new Pokemon Bank release date began to spread on Twitter based off of an alleged tweet from the official Pokemon Twitter page. The tweet purported that the Pokemon Bank release date will be February 29.

But there are many reasons why this release date should be taken with a grain of salt. For one, checking out the official Pokemon Twitter page shows no history of this tweet whatsoever. Secondly, there appears to be a typo, as February 29 does not exist.
And lastly, if you type in the URL shown in the photo, it produces this:

Yeah, a BIG grain of salt. This is yet another bogus Pokemon Bank release date rumor built off of fans' impatience and outrage.
A far more valid and official Pokemon Bank update came from a video by Curse recently in conjunction with Marriland.
"Until the Pokemon Bank errors can be fixed, Nintendo has stated that the new release date will be 'TBD' worldwide. And even now, two weeks after the Pokemon Bank got pulled from the eShop, we have unfortunately heard no updates as to when we might expect it to return."
Check out the video below:
So there you have it. Two weeks after the "release" of Pokemon Bank, Nintendo fans still have nothing to show for it.
