That’s a pretty weak rebuttal. So, Nintendo will fight joycon drift in court, but won’t fight to be able to use Kadabra on their own cards? (Folding TPC into Nintendo for the sake of this conversation). Going by your analysis, it should be an easy case and be thrown out each time. I’m more willing to believe that Nintendo/TPC decided to take his criticism given that he was part of the inspiration for the character. Especially when you consider how Japanese values/morality differ. I think the real interesting thing will be if Kadabra starts appearing on cards again— it wouldn’t be a coincidence.
