    From what I remember it was leaked from someone in the production

    The game is objectively underwhelming, lots of aspects have been neglected or executed poorly - the game features sparsely animated low-poly models with low resolution textures, it suffers from *extreme* pop-in issues by design because Gamefreak doesn't know how to handle clipping or culling, it has significant performance issues with framerate anomalies all over the place, the weather system is ridiculous to such an extent that you can have a bike ride through four seasons of the year in less than a minute and some content is straight-up missing - I'm not even talking about the Pokedex, I'm talking about backgrounds that either don't match the environments or are replaced by a void. It's lazily made and inadequate, the studio clearly phoned it in because they couldn't stand up to the task of making a next gen Pokemon game *or* they didn't care since they knew that fans like you would defend it to the grave anyway, regardless of how poor the game is. Sword and Shield are a mile wide, but only an inch thick, especially compared to titles like BOTW or Mario Odyssey which actually show what the hardware can do. I could excuse all the cut content if the game was at least a technological marvel, but it is neither expansive nor particularly impressive. "Why aren't you just playing something else" is not a valid criticism, you should expect more from a full retail price title.

    What good is a subpoena against 4chan? Everything there gets purged after so much inactivity, and there are reply limits. If there were anything there, its gone now.

    You would be surprised, this could very well be used to get an IP range that could further incriminate the internal leaker, and this way it's also a bigger scare tactic, I wouldn't be surprised if this all stops here.

    Maybe 4chan keeps a log of user data, who knows.

    With how early the first leaks came out, no store should have had any copies. It wouldn't be too far of a stretch to think that some cartridges were stolen somewhere in the manufacturing/distribution line.

    EDIT: People are saying this is regarding the guidebook leaks. Why would there be 3 people of interest they're looking for and why would they not go after the guy that leaked far more than the guidebook leaker and the leaks were basically at the same time. Maybe I missed them explicitly saying they're going for guidebook leakers.

    They're putting more effort into pursuing the leakers than making the game.

    At this point, I'm not sure I care about the results of this suit too much. I'm just hoping this lawsuit gains some amount publicity among the general public so they can see what ludicrously litigious corporations Nintendo and Friends are.

    That's a bad assumption. Look at the Sun and Moon leaks. What happened after everyone was banned? Everyone learned how to unban themselves, and continued to use a pirated copy of the games. I guarantee only a tiny percentage of people bought a brand new 3DS and the games after being banned.

    Not if their copy of the game was not legitimately obtained, or if they had a review copy and an NDA... or if they broke street date by yoinking something out of the retail store they work in before it was supposed to be out, be it a guide or the game itself.

    they need to add "game leaker" otherwise they cant go after the game leaker too Subpoenas need to be very specific on who/what the courts can request btw 4ch iirc isn't subpena friendly just like TPB annon users (though i imagine after this they'll stop their anti vpn policy to protect it's user base

    Pretty tough coming from a company who reuses assets from the 3DS iterations

    I don't think the leakers should be sued. They should countersue if anything. This whole thing is fucking absurd. Some people get things before the official release. Now if they had STOLEN the guide, I could understand having grounds to sue them. But I don't think that's the case here. Nintendo is just sue-happy.

    Shows how lazy developers can be. I hardly see how the leaks were "harmful" to their reputation. Lots of pokemon cut, art style is meh at best, especially after claims that the models required "lots of work" to be put in the game.

    Funny how they can allocate resources and funding for litigation, but can't be bothered to polish and fix issues in a game.
