Pokemon Uranium is a fan-made Pokemon game from Involuntary Twitch and JV. The game had been in development for about nine years, but just last week, it was finally complete and released into the wild. This is probably the largest and most massive Pokemon fan project the community has ever seen, and needless to say, it was instantly well-received once it had finally gone live. However, the creators have since pulled the game down from their official site after hearing reports of Nintendo’s lawyers issuing takedown notices.
‘After receiving more than 1,500,000 downloads of our game, we have been notified of multiple takedown notices from lawyers representing Nintendo of America.
While we have not personally been contacted, it’s clear what their wishes are,
and we respect those wishes deeply.
Therefore, we will no longer provide official download links for the game through our website.
We have no connection to fans who reupload the game files to their own hosts, and we cannot verify that those download links are all legitimate. We advise you to be extremely cautious about downloading the game from unofficial sources.
We are blown away by the response this game has received, and we thank you all so much for your outstanding support.
We will continue to provide Pokémon Uranium-related news and updates through our official channels.’
While the game is no longer available for download on the creators’ site, fans can still download it from external or third-party sources, though it might be potentially unsafe to do so. Either way, for those who were fortunate enough to download Pokemon Uranium before it was taken down, the creators have also stated that they will continue to support the project through patches and updates.
