Umm... can someone clarify exactly what this means? I'm about to be very angry that I spent my hard earned money on a 3DS and Pokemon Y if I can't even use my guys.
You can use them online all you like, with friends, randoms, battle spot (I believe???), etc

You can't use them in official tournaments like the VGC (& Presumably the "special battle" option?)

Since it seems no one has said it, the eshop listing has changed from "Available at your local retailer" to "coming to eshop".

Thank god! Its not that I use too much HM's on my Pokémon, but I want to transfer basically everything once Bank/transporter is available
I'm pretty sure somewhere it said you could not transfer them if they have HM moves.

Wait, so I can't go out to Gamestop and buy the physical copy there to load into my 3DS?

GameFreak hates us!

I've seen nothing saying that. Could you provide a link?

Pokebank is a 3ds APPLICATION.
It loads directly from eshop onto your game; Gamestop has nothing to do with that.

Oh thank god; I was worried there for a second.

Now there's just the issue of whether or not NA users will still get the free PokeTransfer trial when the delayed release finally happens.

That Looks like it comes from Pokemon.com but it a fake. Serebii has commented on the image as fake on twitter. (and I agree with him)
The fact that it says the trial will be available until 28 February 2013 already should raise suspicion anyway. Good to see that Serebii has already addressed that image too. Anything beyond January 3th is a bit longer than I'd like to be waiting too.

You realize he's 100% sarcastic with that, right?

Aw I got really excited there! Gosh dang it! Because for me that would only be 2 days away! But that does seem realistic dates, just that image is fake...
Ah well I got a Mudkip on the GTS today :D
And the sooner we get Pokemon bank the sooner I can trade some pokemon!
