So recently the Pokemon company shut down the minecraft pokemon mod and it got me thinking why are they not going after the unlicensed Pokemon games on ios/android? There are quite a few popping up but the main two are Pocketown and Monster Park, both of which are VERY similar, even mirroring a lot of the UI making me think it might be one person making both. Don't get me wrong, I think these games are filling a void that nintendo has never really filled, an online Pokemon game such as these. I'm just wondering what you guys think of these games? Is this question even allowed?
I'm sure your question is valid, don't worry. The only two reasons I can think of as to why they are not shutting down more unlicensed Pokemon games is that there is just too many of them. Just like Rom-Hacks, The Pokemon Company originally started to shut down the roms, but soon there was just too many of them so they decided to lay back. The second reason might be because they just have better things to do, even though this reason is no excuse. That's all I could come up with, good question though.
