By now, Palworld’s reputation precedes it. It was released earlier this year to much criticism levied at the game’s monster designs which bared more than a passing resemblance to certain Pokémon.

Pokémon is no stranger to having imitators but the design similarities have sparked a wave of controversy that doesn’t seem to be letting up soon. While The Pokémon Company said that they intend to look into the matter further it seems other Japanese companies are already preparing for the fallout.

Reports are circulating that an unnamed Japanese talent agency has informed it’s clients to be careful not to mention Palworld on their social media accounts so as not to jeopardize future collaborations with Pokémon.

While these are just rumors and should be taken with a grain of salt it certainly would make sense considering the buzz Palworld has made in the gaming space. It’s hard to predict what exactly will happen next but we will be sure to keep you updated with more news as it develops.

This reads like a 8 year old playground rumor solely to rile people up. I'm all for rumor articles, especially since you all make it obvious it is a rumor, but I feel you should be a little more selective about what you post still.
