Pokémon risponde al caso di Palworld: “adotteremo le azioni appropriate”

The official statement presumably comes after numerous reports made by gamers and observers to The Pokémon Company, which has found itself ‘forced’ to react publicly. The statement carefully avoids mentioning Palworld directly, stating, “We have received many requests for information regarding a game released by another company in January 2024.” The company emphasizes that it has not given permission for the use of Pokémon intellectual property or assets in that game and intends to investigate and take appropriate measures to address any acts that violate Pokémon’s intellectual property rights. Despite the accusations, it has not been proven that Pocketpair, the developer of Palworld, has stolen assets or violated anyone’s copyright. The opinions of analysts and social media accounts attempting to demonstrate alleged similarities are not sufficient evidence for The Pokémon Company to sue the studio. As known, The Pokémon Company is extremely protective of its IP, and if there were any legal leeway, Palworld would not have been released, like many mods or fan games that preceded it. For example, a recently discussed Pokémon-themed mod for Palworld has already been removed at the request of The Pokémon Company’s lawyers. For now, the answer remains no. It is uncertain what might emerge from a thorough investigation, which could give The Pokémon Company legal grounds to prevent the game’s sale or to reach some other compromise between the parties.
