Nintendo and Pokémon Co. shutting down Pokémon Scarlet/Violet leaks
We knew this was coming
A few days back, we shared the news of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaking. Unfortunately, the situation has only gotten worse since then, with the ROM making its way online, and spoilers flooding various social media platforms. Not surprisingly, Nintendo and Pokémon Co. are taking things very seriously.
Some of the bigger names out on the internet who have been leaking content have now been hit with Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) strikes for showing off screens and footage from Pokémon Scarlet/Violet. Of course, that content has made its way onto other websites where Nintendo and Pokémon Co. are yet to yank them.
Both companies are also shutting down streams of the game on both YouTube and Twitch. Those involved with showing off leaked content are certainly putting their accounts at risk for major repercussions.
Nintendo is yet to comment publicly on the matter, and the same goes for Pokémon Co.. If they do end up making a statement, it will likely be a joint release.
