    Just wondering if the pokemon themselves are protected intellectual property. I see eBay sales for Pokemon all the time and have been doing some research as well. A lot of those ads are removed but they don't state clearly if it's because the item is digital (which I know is allowed) or because it's copyright. Which makes me wonder, wouldn't Twitchers like Sakatia have been banned LONG ago if it were in fact illegal? BY that I mean making money off Ninty's copyrighted pokemon. I guess it's just a very grey area. I would love to hear others opinions on the matter. Since the ToS for Pokemon does in fact state it's against it to sell pokemon.
