Yesterday, a fraudulent copy of Pokemon Yellow popped onto the App Store, making millions of peoples dreams come true. Well after many, many people spent a dollar on the game, they quickly learned that it loads a picture and then crashes.
I've always wanted a remake of Pokemon Yellow.
That would be great, but this fake game is just wrong.
Yes, I agree. I don't get how Apple allowed for this to happen though.
because apple just wants money they don't care how they get it haven't you seen how they been suing the shit out of everyone lately
They'll take it down when it finishes selling, lol
Because they're stupid, they allow anything on the app store, it's disgraceful.
I'd hardly say that they'd allow anything on the App Store, and don't label me as an Apple fanboy because I have an Android phone myself but if you look at Google's Market and the viruses that crop up on there and then compare it to the Apple's App Store, then you can see that they don't just allow anything. Granted, you're limited by not being able to execute code on iOS the same way you are on Android OS but still Apple is stricter. But how this managed to get on is just...wow.
See? Even the casual apple heads lust after some Pokemon.
Can't wait Nintendo to hit Apple with a cease and desist letter. Hopefully the app gets removed soon.
A lot of the reviews on the game say that they are going to sue the maker of the game. It is likely an idle threat but if just one person goes after him, I would be happy.
The only thing that needs to happen is for someone to file class action against the maker and inform anyone who purchased it that they have the right to participate or forfeit that right.
I find the amount of stupid people in soceity amusing.
Easy source of money for us.
coming from someone who spelt SOCIETY wrong
Although, a mistype doesn't equate to stupidity. You, however, just typed a fragment and did not use capitalization or punctuation, so maybe you shouldn't be correcting grammar on a video game website. BTW: I did my best to not include errors in this post (I usually try not to), but if I did, be aware that was absolutely not my point. Communication on the internet is casual. Screwing up one word does not mean that you are dumb.
Too good to be true, can't believe people fell for this.
It's hard to believe that it is still selling, even with a 1/5 star rating.
This proves how stupid people who game on ipods/ipads are. Any smart person would know you will never see a nintendo game on the ipod/ipad I wanna give it 5 stars for trolling
Apple products have become toys for kids, soccer moms, and misguided hipsters.
there is a pokemon game on the japanese app store but its a rhythm game. and nintendo doesnt own the complete rights pokemon, they have a large stake in the Game Freak, the studio that created pokemon but not enough to dictate what they do. which is why pokemon is plastered everywhere in japan
iphone for gaming FTW!! /sarcasm
Oh man Pokemon Yellow was my all time favorite PK game when i was a kid.
You know this game is fake when the press quotes don't cite who they came from.
It goes to show what money Nintendo could make if they released an official, working version on iOS and Android when people gobbled up a broken version for a dollar. It's unbelievable that someone would actually do this, though. He would be working off the pending lawsuit for the rest of his life.
Shameful, that's what Apple's approvals process is supposed to stop
And yet people like Tim Schafer say PSN/Xbox Live should be more open...LOOK WHAT SOME SCAMMERS GET AWAY WITH on the App Store! I just can't believe people see Pokemon game and just buy it. They don't even research or read any reviews? Talk about stupid.
It should be more open to developers. not indie's,indie's have enough freedom as it is. How many Massage-apps* are there on the Indie marketplace(xbox live) already? They have enough freedom to much if you ask me, those who complain are just winey bitches looking to get quick cash and don't care about gamers. *massage apps are apps to make your controller vibrate.
I hope Nintendo rapes them to death with a lawsuit.
yellow was the best 1.I used to think Pickachu following u around was so tight!
Hope Nintendo sues the sh*t outta them
Quick Nintendo, join Google in their patent battle against apple. That's intellectual property right there!
Would love to see a Pokemon game on ios. Maybe Pokemon Snap with augmented reality? Yellow would be fun too.
Highest selling app? WHAT THE ****. Don't people read the user reviews? Like... Seriously.
Stop blaming Apple and blame the ass that published it to the App store. If you know the process, requirements and agrements there is only one place to point the finger. There are many rip offs that get submitted and some slip through because not everyone involved in the publishing process has a wide knowledged of every freak'n game out there. Considering how many apps they have to sift through, let alone non-game apps. Developers that abuse the terms and conditions are going to end up f---ing this up for the rest of us. If you want to help stop stuff like this you simply click the "report a problem" button on the bottom of app page description in the store. It was taken down BTW. It is also happening/been happening elsewhere.
Well if the app store has reviews then it is dumb to buy a game that would have a very low score if not why no reviews android has reviews
Wow i am serprised that people got this seeing that its not even made by nintendo also i thing if nintendo ever put pokemon game up (Huge douth) on the app store or android market place they would get alot of buys like how there was a pokemon fan game called Pokemon tower defence which was a smart idea and was play alot for a flash game hell people are still playing it constanly it even has muliplayer...sorry for getting off track anyway they game was put up on the android market place and was one of the top ten action app on the android marketplace (got suspended) with over 100k downloads! 4.8/5 rating with over 2,000 ratings!
If nintendo ever made a smartphone, they would totally rape the iphone in terms of game sales. I mean just look at how much this crapfest sold, and it wasn't even real. lol
