Pokemon Bank delayed, a special Torchic from the Nintendo Network, the TCG Winter Regional
Championships, all that and more right here on the Pokemon Update brought to you by Curse
Hey guys, I'm Jess - long time no see! We took a break from Pokemon news for the holidays
and during that time, Nintendo released the Pokemon Bank in Japan! And then quickly shut
it down. The launch was rocky, filled with laggy connections and error messages, and
the increased eShop activity from everyone who got a new 3DS for Christmas actually brought
down the eShop and its servers. 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.
Time is running out on the special Torchic giveaway - if you haven't claimed yours yet,
it's got a Hidden Ability called Speed Boost, and holds a Blazikenite, the Mega Stone needed
for Blaziken's Mega Evolution! You have until January 15th to claim your special Torchic
from the Nintendo Network! If you're not sure how to do that, we've put a link in the video
The Pokemon TCG Winter Regional Championships are rapidly approaching - starting this weekend
and continuing through the rest of January, different regional events will be held each
weekend, with events taking place in Virginia, Missouri, California, Oregon, and Florida.
Top finishers at Regionals will get booster packs, trophies, and the possibility of a
Travel Award or Stipend for the National Championships, from a pool of nearly $200,000 in travel allowances!

The Unova Version of the Pokemon Global Link will be closing down on January 14th. This
means that any Pokemon or items you've collected in the Global Link can no longer be transferred
to your Pokemon Black, White, Black 2, or White 2 versions of the game, including accessories
such as C-Gear skins and Pokemon skins, nor will you be able to access the Unova version
of the Global Trade Station or connected to Nintendo Wifi Connection in order to use the
Memory Link feature. Once again, we've included a link in the description with full details
in case you're still confused.
Finally, if you're a fan of hte Pokemon movies and TV show, be sure to tune in this Saturday
for the world premiere of Mewtwo - Prologue to the Awakening at 8:30 AM on Cartoon Network,
followed by an encore presentation of Pokemon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened!
