Nintendo subsidiary asks fans to report illicit imitations
The rights holder of the Pokémon IP says it will take action against companies and individuals selling counterfeited goods based on its lucrative brand.
“We continue to combat the unauthorised release of games, applications and merchandise that trick our fans into purchasing something that does not meet our quality standards,” The Pokémon Company told Develop.
The group’s comments come days after two separate fake iOS apps together made thousands of dollars from fooling people into thinking they were genuine products.
“Pokémon Yellow” and “Pokémon Pocket Edition” both managed to slip past the App Store approval process but customers immediately complained that both games were scams.
Apple has since deleted both illegal apps.
