"It's the sequel of Pokémon Brown, therefore, there are new Elemental Types and new TM's. You can travel to Rijon for a second quest. The Pokédex has 252 Pokemon, including some from each of the first four generations. The game includes new mini-games and plot points in which the player controls a Pokémon." You play as the child of Lance and get Larvitar as your starter.
On December 21, 2016, Nintendo sent a cease & desist order which ended the game's development. However, an anonymous user on 4chan leaked v0.91 (build 0144) of the game, the leaked build is from December 19, 2016.
SO Why Banned?
It's not like Prism is using their recent pokemon games or anything, so why? it seems pretty harmless to me especially considering there are probably atleast 100 other fan made pokemon games out there floating around. who cares that alot of people saw it?
they SAY its a hack fan made game, its not like theyre claiming rights or anything. IN FACT i think they should be looking to the GENIUSES for EMPLOYMENT! yah you heard me. They should be HIRING THESE FAN GAME MAKERS! Clearly they are skilled.
They should have a contest whoever makes the fan made game (that they deem the best one) should get a chance to work with nintendo. If theyre really bent on thinking that fan games are hurting them so much they could require that fan games be sold for like $2 and that they get half or whatever. id be okay with paying 2$.
although Nintendo doesn't really need the money and i find it terrible that they threaten to sue kids.... especially when they're dedicated fans!
What does everyone else think? Anyone have some insider Info to answer these questions? Does anyone know Nintendo's reasons? If i find out i will let you know. Thanks for reading!
