The Pokémon Company is furious after finding out that their guide was leaked! Now they enter the court in hopes to gain assistance to search for these leakers and sue them!
Before the release of Pokémon: Sword and Shield, leakers have been posting back to back in-game images all over every platform.
One leak thread in particular, happened to be photos taken from their Official Galar Region Strategy Guide (Which at the time, was supposed to stay hidden until launch).
Forbes recently shared “Pokémon wants to serve subpoenas on Discord and 4chan to get their help in tracking down the leakers. It’s awaiting the court’s decision.”. They linked Pokémon’s Legal Document which states from Page 3 P.21 -P.22:
“The Strategy Guide is avaliable for purchase on November 22. Critically, the Strategy Guide contains components of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield that TPCI and its partners worked to keep secret prior to the games’ launch.”The Pokémon Company’s Legal Document
Let’s see how this plays out for both sides, shall we? Stay tuned for more updates!
