Pokemon Co., Ltd. filed a lawsuit against two people who leaked the photo in November 2019 after the unpublished photo of 'Pokemon Sword Shield' was leaked online. And on June 22, 2021, it was revealed that Pokemon Co., Ltd. responded to the settlement in this proceeding. The defendant is required to pay Pokemon Co., Ltd. for damages and court costs of $ 150,000 (about 17 million yen).
The defendant posted a leak photo of Pokemon Sword Shield on Discord's chat. The leak photo is a photo of the Pokemon Sword Shield strategy guide printed at the factory where one of the defendants worked. One person took a leak photo at the factory, the other shared it on Discord, and 'spread it all over the world,' Pokemon Co., Ltd. complains. The leaked photo included the unpublished 'Pokemon Kyodai Max no Suga'.
In the complaint, Pokemon Co., Ltd. stated that it 'quickly responded' to the leaked photo, including issuing a deletion request via the Internet.
In addition, it is not only the photo of the strategy guide that was leaked. Nintendo has blacklisted the site because the Portuguese website has released leak videos and more. In addition, a list of all Pokemon that appeared in Sword Shield before the release was leaked.
