Pokémon Bank app now available in North America on the 3DS eShop

Posted on February 5, 2014 AT 02:16pm

The Pokémon Bank app is finally available through the 3DS eShop in North America following its European launch yesterday.

Nintendo has yet to formally announce the Pokémon Bank’s availability, but a cursory visit to the 3DS eShop finds it turning up as the first item listed. And according to that listing, anyone who activates the Pokémon Bank by March 14 will receive a 30-day trial (the Bank is otherwise $4.99 a year). Downloading the Pokémon Bank before September will also net players legendary pokémon Celebi at level 10.

The Pokémon Bank allows players to store up to 3,000 pokémon in cloud storage. It was initially set to launch outside of Japan December 27, but delayed following the rash of connectivity problems that plagued Nintendo services during the holidays.
