As of late March 2023, it will no longer be possible to make purchases in Nintendo eShop for the Wii U system and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
The Pokémon Company has announced that Pokémon Bank will be free to use but new downloads of the software will no longer be possibile. Pokémon deposited in Pokémon Bank will be able to be moved to Pokémon HOME even after the software become free to use.
At the moment there isn't an end date for the free service.

I'm glad that I moved all my Pokémon to HOME because my subscription expire in a few days (or maybe is already expired) but I'm happy that in a year it will be free to use :dance: :happydance:
I only hope that Bank will stay for a lot of time :omg:
