The Pokémon Company sues who leaked Pokémon Sword and Shield
The Pokémon Company has initiated the necessary legal procedures to identify those who were responsible for filtering important details and even graphic materials of Pokémon Sword and Shield before its launch. The Japanese company, which had been especially discreet when it came to revealing surprises during the waiting months of these editions, accuses those responsible for “causing irreparable damage” for the company.
As Forbes advances, The Pokémon Company International has closed a contract with a well-known law firm, Perkins Coie, which has commissions in the past with tech giants like Google. The information also clarifies that a lawsuit has been filed to form in the court of the Western District of Washington, at the seat of Seattle, a document alleging such damages and the origin of these leaks.
It was through Discord where a total of four users were sharing the materials and revealing information that has proven to be real. The modus operandi was as follows: one of them delivered the images; the other three helped to distribute these captures in different networks and forums.
