    So to no shock to anyone, Nintendo had to go and poop poo all over our fun and send multiple takedown notices to the creators of Pokemon Uranium.

    Considering Nintendo's long history of abusing the legal system, I am more shocked that it took this long.

    It's a sad story but the most important thing is that i can still play "backups" on the 3ds and the wii u and they didn't release wii u update yet. Can't wait for pokemon sun and moon.

    Only that Nintendo isn't C&D-ing the devs. They only target file-hosting websites that host the files, meaning that we can still Keep Circulating The Tapes (TvTropes addiction warning!). It seems that Nintendo is basically saying: "Go on ahead, but don't release it on a file-hosting website, because we will then be forced to take it down". Which is still shitty, but not nearly as bad.

    tbh its pretty much every big corp have their pack of hyena lawyers on the payroll looking to send C&D letters so they can bill nintendo for a job well done protecting their IP from those evil fans

    This is why I downloaded the game the day it was released :P
    Even though I don't plan on playing it anytime soon, it's good to know I have an official copy of the game in case I ever do feel like playing it.
