Pokémon Makers Respond to App Store Scam
The Pokémon Company has formally responded to the makers of a series of Pokémon scams that have featured on the App Store.
One game listed on the App Store previewed a remake of Pokémon Yellow. It only took a glance at the rating and comments to see that it was a scam. The game was subsequently removed from the App Store after being a top seller…somehow.
The Pokémon Company responded in an interview with the site, Develop:
“We continue to combat the unauthorised release of games, applications and merchandise that trick our fans into purchasing something that does not meet our quality standards.”
We’re not sure how the app was allowed to even be released on the App Store in the first place. Lets hope downloaders don’t get tricked again!
