There's a reason why we haven't been reporting on any of the leaked Pokemon Sword and Shield news. That info was stemming from a stolen copy of Pokemon Sword and Shield, which was then distributed online. Obviously, Nintendo and Pokemon Co. haven't been too happy about the situation, but rumor has it they've finally tracked down who started their nightmare.
While we don't have information on who it was, we're hearing that Nintendo used a single profile pic to do some backwards digital detective work to hunt down the leaker, who was eventually unearthed via a Facebook profile. I can only imagine what kind of Hell awaits this leaker.
