Because this is Nintendo, and Nintendo just does strange stuff. The case was literally thrown out of court. It could be they just don't want to waste the money paying lawyers to defend their rights to use the character and name every time Geller makes a false claim. He can probably do that relatively easily, and potentially for even near to no money (especially if he represents himself), whereas Nintendo's lawyers likely get paid hundreds to thousands of pounds per hour, even if they are just defending false legal claims. Again, I don't really know why no cards have appeared with character on them for a while--he's certainly been in all the games, which shows there is no issue over copyright and Trademark on the design or name--but this is Nintendo we are talking about.
