Pokemon Uranium Taken Down After Multiple Nintendo Notices

So to no shock to anyone, Nintendo had to go and ruin the party by sending multiple takedown notices to the creators of Pokemon Uranium.

After receiving more than 1,500,000 downloads of our game, we have been notified of multiple takedown notices from lawyers representing Nintendo of America.
While we have not personally been contacted, it’s clear what their wishes are,
and we respect those wishes deeply.
Therefore, we will no longer provide official download links for the game through our website.
We have no connection to fans who reupload the game files to their own hosts, and we cannot verify that those download links are all legitimate. We advise you to be extremely cautious about downloading the game from unofficial sources.

We are blown away by the response this game has received, and we thank you all so much for your outstanding support.
We will continue to provide Pokémon Uranium-related news and updates through our official channels.

You are welcome to continue discussing and sharing content related to the game on our forums and Discord, where there is a very active community.

Thank you for reading, and let’s share the love of Pokémon!

This might be the only fully custom Pokemon fangame that has been finished. At least it's the first one I've heard of. Definitely going to have to try it out sometime.
Ahhh another pokemon clone. And why URANIUM. WHAT, terrible. We already have like 4 green colors already. Can't feel attached to this. and it took 9 YEARS. Was one person working on this? O_O
I don't think you know how much effort it is making a full-length RPG from scratch. Even more so when they have to make sure they adhere to the already established battle mechanics, formulas and such. It takes a medium-sized professional team years to do, and these guys' team is probably much smaller than Game Freak.
Most fangame projects of this kind are cancelled/abandoned long before they're finished, because it just takes an extreme amount of time invested into it to actually finish it. And they're not making any money from this, so they likely have day jobs or school to worry about as well, meaning they won't have as much time to invest into it.

"This is a fan made game meant to be played on your PC via an emulator."

It's not emulated. It's made with a game-making application. There's no ROMs of any kind.
I removed that part from the quote. Still keeping it a quote because plagiarism is bad, mmmmk

DMCA incoming.
Be prepared to add this to the list of games this year (AM2R is also in this one)
Yeah, I am expecting a cease and desist. Although, they could easily get around it by simply changing a few things and making it a "Pokemon inspired" game

has this been taken down? Website hosting the download is unavailable. Edit: never mind, its back up, though parts of the website aren't loading.
