Nintendo Network undergoing extended maintenance for eShops and Pokemon X/Y

Nintendo's servers will be undergoing a fresh bout of extended maintenance later this week, leading to some brief downtime for the Wii U and 3DS eShops. A separate maintenance routine will affect Pokemon X & Y later today, meaning you won't be able to utilize the game's online services until Tuesday morning.

Nintendo's website states that the eShops will go down on Thursday, March 13 from 1pm PDT to 5pm that same day.

Pokemon X & Y's online services are set to go down today at 5pm PDT and will not go back up until 7am tomorrow morning, which will disable online battles and trading, among other features.
