Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks targeted with copyright strike

After footage leaked from Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet Going viral this week, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are actively targeting unauthorized content with copyright strikes, according to the leaker.

Several prominent Pokémon fan and leak accounts reported that they and others received Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) warnings shortly after they published the leaked footage. leaks and screenshots supposedly from scarlet and Violet Game. The footage includes a grainy image of what appears to be the evolution of Fuecoco, other unannounced Pokémon, and a 30-second clip from the game intro movie. Many images have been removed from social media following or in anticipation of copyright strikes, but some are still elsewhere on the internet.

A Pokémon fan account aggregating leaks, named PearlEthersast, tweeted a screenshot of the DMCA takedown notice they received on Monday, including several posts on Twitter. Other users deleted pictures and video clips from their posts, while some accounts are temporarily locked. On Monday, a Twitch stream reported to be taken offline almost immediately due to a copyright claim from Nintendo.

This is not really surprising. Nintendo has a reputation for being strict with unauthorized content, whether it’s leaked footage, Bowser’s penis art fanand fan favorite soundtrack channel. The Pokémon Company itself has had its fair share of DMCA strikes in the past – and in 2019 the company filed a lawsuit after someone obtained Sword Pokémon and Shield strategy guide and post its photos online. Through the Sword and Shield The leak is published anonymously, the Pokémon Company can trace the people involved. The Pokémon Company settled the lawsuit in 2021, with the court ordering the leakers to pay $150,000 each in damages and attorney’s fees. However, the strategy guide photos weren’t the only major leak that led to Sword and Shield; a freelancer for a Portuguese game site, called FNintendo, was later identified as the leaker. Nintendo has blacklisted the site.

Nintendo and the Pokémon Company’s tough stance on leaks doesn’t seem to have left the leakers really surprised. This early year, someone published Pokémon Legend: Arceus‘full PokéDex and its opening sequence, as well as renderings of new Pokémon. Like this time with scarlet and VioletThe companies quickly removed the leaks – but not before they went viral.

Polygon reached out to Nintendo and The Pokémon Company on Monday to ask if either would take action against the leakers. The Pokémon Company declined to comment and Nintendo has yet to respond.
