Dev behind Pokemon Uranium explains exactly why the game was taken down

The following excerpt comes from Involuntary Twitch, one of the devs behind the Pokemon Uranium fan game...

The final nail in the coffin was on September 1, when I received a letter at my front doorstep from the legal firm that represents Nintendo of America. It was printed on nice quality paper, and had been sent via express overnight shipping, so that’s how I knew it was serious. It told me that I needed to immediately stop our entire web operation – take down the server, stop providing updates and stop generating ad revenue – or they’d sue me, and the Uranium Team, for hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

Turns out the discussion of Nintendo threatening legal action wasn't actually true at first. That rumor started long before Nintendo's lawyers sent the document mentioned above. Looks like the rumor of legal threats was a self-fulfilling prophecy.
