Pokémon’s actual creators take a moment to remind gamers that it’s not Nintendo who’s crafting Pikachu and his pals’ video game adventures.
You're doing and have been doing a poor awareness job because almost everyone thinks its ninty making pokemon
Not surprised. Basically the average person thinks that because a company in this case Nintendo publishes a game that automatically means its made by them. Never mind that on game cases and various places within the games says otherwise. I still think back to when Pokemon Go came out and Nintendo's stock shot up sky high because investors you know the people to whom you would think knows about the company they are investing in somehow had no idea who actually makes Pokemon games. lmao
Most people don’t make that distinction when talking about second party titles. Pokémon isn’t the only one
Nintendo Should Buy Them for One Billion Dollars(Doctor Evils Voice) make pokemon for ps4 then gaddammit
They can't make Pokemon for PS4 lol. The Pokemon Company is a joint investment between Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures. Nintendo is the biggest part-owner of the franchise itself too, and all trademarks are solely in their name.
Maybe, and I know this will upset the fanboys, but maybe if you released Pokemon on other than just Nintendo platforms people wouldn't think it's made by them. There's never been a reason not to, and I think it's time you guys came out of your comfort zone cause honestly you've grown stale
Nintendo own Pokémon they just don’t make it
Nop. Ninty have a share of the pokemon company that was established through a joint investment by the three businesses holding the copyright on Pokémon: Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures, with each of them having part of the shares of Pokémon Company due to this.
@Brazz nintendo is sole owner of the trademarks tho, the pokemon company is just for publisher copyright
@Brazz - Nintendo owns the largest share of the company though
I mean I've known it's not nintendo. I always rightfully blame gamefreak and creatures inc for the lack of innovation with Pokemon but yea most ppl wouldn't know and it doesn't really matter their still selling boatloads for the same game. I'm one of the dummies that keeps coming back for more lol yup Pokemon is deeply rooted in my childhood so they get me every time lol
How are you a dummy If I like a game and the mechanics I come back for more How is it any different from any other series Either you play what you like or you don’t
I play Pokemon for the tiny bits of story that it includes and because I like the Pokemon. Gameplay is terrible and battle sucks, it's basic and has been the same since the 90's at least imo. So ultimately I play for those small bits of story included so im a dummy because of the love hate relationship I've built over the years lol Combat is a slog to get through and boring to me. I really liked detective Pikachu on 3ds just to give you an idea of wt I'm referring to.
Wait...why would he even says that now? Sure Game Freak is the developer but the IP is owned by the Pokemon company partly ownd by 3 parties including Nintendo. So...it's not so wrong to say Nintendo "fundamentally" made Pokemon games right? That's like saying Sony didn't make Ratchet & Clank games. Insomniac is the devs duhh...but Sony owns the IP thus Sony "fundamentally" made it...through Insomniac.
but Sony doesn't dictate how the game is made down to the T, they let Insomniac design the game. Just like Nintendo lets Game Freak make the games, Nintendo doesn't say what to include or not include.
True, but Nintendo does publish the titles and funds r&d. It’s a joint venture. What about Creatures Inc employees? They are even less known. Lol.
Tomato Tomarto .... Pokemon is a Nintendo game. Deal with it.
It’s always been gamefreak. If you never known this than you were never an original Pokémon fan.
just like how everyone thinks Sony created Blu-ray when actually it was a group of companies that came up with it... :P People just assume things sometimes I guess. But Nintendo does have a part in the Pokemon Company, so there is involvement to a degree.
Wasn't one of them Panasonic who helped create the discs and disc drives for Nintendo from Gamecube up to Wii U?
yeah there was a handful of companies that collaborated on creating the Blu ray disc format. Sony was definitely a player and had a hand in it, but many people assume they created it because it was in the PS3.
Nintendo is only 1/3 the owners of The Pokemon Company and Game Freak who is not owned by Nintendo generally makes the games. They also release games on other platforms non-Pokemon related. I don't even follow Pokemon nor play anythng Pokemon related and even I know this. It's not that hard.
This is sadly true
