The Pokemon Company has expressed its intention to thoroughly investigate Palworld

In a recent statement, The Pokemon Company made it clear that they have not authorized any other company, specifically referring to Pocketpair, the developer of the popular game Palworld, to use their intellectual property or assets. They have expressed their intention to thoroughly investigate the matter and take the necessary actions against the rapidly expanding survival game operator.

This is the first time the Pokemon Company has recognized Palworld’s incredibly successful survival game. In less than six days, the game has already sold over 8 million copies, surpassing even the most popular AAA titles. However, Palworld has been facing increasing criticism, particularly from fans of Japan’s renowned company, due to allegations of plagiarism and striking similarities. Nevertheless, the game’s distinctive blend of monster collecting, automation, and survival/crafting mechanics has captivated players.

Palworld, accessible on both PCs through Steam and Xbox, caters to the long-awaited desire for a contemporary approach to the monster-taming genre, which Pokémon undeniably pioneered but has struggled to innovate substantially. Gamers have flocked to Palworld for its cutting-edge strategy, whether it be out of genuine curiosity or a desire for change.

Pocketpair, the developer behind the game, made it clear that their title had more in common with Ark Survival rather than Pokemon. Pocketpair CEO Takuro Mizobe recently expressed concern about the negative comments and threatening tweets his team has been receiving.

“We have received numerous inquiries regarding a game that another company released in January 2024.” In a statement on its website on Thursday, The Pokemon Company made it clear that no permission has been granted for the use of Pokémon intellectual property or assets in that game.

We are committed to thoroughly examining and implementing necessary actions to combat any instances of intellectual property rights violations concerning Pokémon. We are committed to valuing and cultivating every Pokémon and its world and striving to unite the world through Pokémon in the future.”
