Pokemon: Uranium Fan Game Pulled After 1.5 Million Downloads

The popular Pokemon fan-game is pulled from the official website after over one million pokemon fans downloaded it.

In an official statement from the team behind the popular Pokemon fan-game Pokemon Uraniumthe game is no longer available on their official website for download. The statement from the game’s creators implies that they were made aware of “multiple take-down notices from lawyers representing Nintendo of America” and while they were not officially contacted by said lawyers, they chose to pull the game anyway, saying that Nintendo had made its wishes clear, and the team wanted to respect them.

However, it is quite clear that the game had its share of fans before it was taken down. Over 1.5 million copies of the game were downloaded off of the official site prior to the takedown, and certainly many more will surface as gamers find other sources to download the game from. 

 

 

Pictured above is the official image of the Pokemon Uranium team’s statement of the game’s takedown. While it is sad that this particular fan-game is leaving us, don’t fret. The Pokemon Uranium team mentioned on the downloads page of their website in the comments section along with the official statement that they will continue to provide patches and updates for the game via their website, as well as continue posting about news related to the fan-game on all of their social media channels. The only thing they won’t provide is downloads for the game itself. 

So where can you get a copy of Pokemon: Uranium now that the game has been pulled? It seems many gamers are relying heavily on torrents or other fan-game websites to get a copy of the game. However, the Pokemon: Uranium team warns that such downloads may not be official files related to the fan-game, and to be very careful.
