Right now, just a release date would make me happy. I'm staying away from GTS now because I know I can do no rescues; I'd just like a light at the end of the long, dark tunnel.
Grand Riser, henshin!

This is getting ridiculus. Im usually a patient guy, but it has been several days since new years and not even an update or a release date from Nintendo? They really screwed up.
I got myself an Infernape for an Xerneas on the GTS because I can get another Xerneas on my next run of X, but this is ridiculous. Keeping myself busy breeding Chimchars and playing Fire Emblem Awakening. I also got into the TCG a bit.
Shiny Sninx Breeding!
Hatch Count: 67
Trying to obtain a Shiny Shinx!
I hope Poke bank will be avaiable in the future. Ive breed some eevees with a hidden ability and hyper voice, so that, it will become a sylveon with pixilate and hyper voice. But it still on my white 2 version...
Man, I still gotta wait longer to bring over my shiny brave Aggron from Emerald (so I can use its shiny mega form). :(
I suppose in the meantime I could just get it to my Black 2, but I feel like doing other things as well...
I think I know why they took it down. It's not just because it caused downtime on Nintendo eShop and Nintendo Network, but I think they found out that people were still able to store hacked Pokémon from previous generations. So the reason they've decided to take it down and delay the release of Poké Transporter and Pokémon Bank... is because they're working on a special system that will detect Pokémon that have stats outside of it's maximum allowed, and also if the Pokémon has an ability that it's not supposed to have, the Pokémon will be blocked.
Because I'm sure Nintendo has read all the complaints of people that have seen others using hacked Pokémon. Trust me, once they announce the new release of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter, they will also announce that it has a special new mechanism that blocks any hacked Pokémon. You'll see. ;)
And FWIW, it seems largely to be the same as it has been in previous gens. Someone in the PVG Bank thread said their HOO Arceus was blocked so we know it does block blatantly hacked Pokemons. In contrast, one of the whining articles from Kotaku noted that an Infernape with Iron Fist in a Master Ball was let through when, in fact, that is a completely legal Pokemon to have due to the BW2 Global Link giveaway in some US Wal-Mart stores.
I'm not saying it is perfect, but anyone who was hoping for it to block everything and anything under the sun just didn't have realistic expectations. I know some people lose sleep at night worrying about hacked Pokemon on other people's games, but I don't think those people are working at Nintendo or Game Freak. And, where it does matter, there are stricter legality checks in place for Random Match and official VGC matches.
I seriously hope Nintendo gives us SOME news about this...I really wanna transfer my main team from Black 2 onto my Y. D: C'mon, Nintendo, gives us a bone with some meat on it here, please! ♥ We've all been waiting!

We'll just have to wait and see when it comes out. I'm waiting for news on Flipnote Studio 3D.
Nintendo of South Korea had a Nintendo Direct today and in the very beginning of the video they mention Pokemon Bank.
Can anyone translate Korean?

I'm no expert on Korean but I think he's just giving a simple update since I didn't see a release date come up or anything.
