Leakers who leaked Sword and Shield content prematurely ordered to pay damages to The Pokémon Company

You may recall that The Pokémon Company filed a lawsuit against the leakers who leaked information about Pokémon Sword and Shield shortly before its release. Well, today we’ve got some news on the matter.

According to what was shared, one of the leakers was someone who took these photos while working at the company as part of the development of the official strategy guide. Another was responsible for disseminating these images on Discord, and they eventually made their way to the entire internet before some Pokémon and alternate forms of existing Pokémon were officially announced.

In the documents, the defendants are ordered to pay $150,000 in damages and attorney’s fees. Finally, it is also reconfirmed that the Portuguese website FNintendo has been blacklisted by Nintendo for publishing its own leaks similar to the ones described above.

Pokémon Sword And Shield was officially released on November 15, 2019, for the Nintendo Switch. Last year, the developer released two expansion packs for the game, The Isle Of Armor in June and The Crown Tundra in October, both of which added new areas and reintroduced older Pokémon.

Earlier this year, a 23-year-old man was arrested in Japan for hacking and selling save data from Pokémon Sword And Shield. The man sold a Sobble, which he had modified the details of with a PC, to a 36-year-old man in Kyoto for £30. It is believed that the man had earned around £7,950 performing this service for people since November 2020.

Insiders point to a high-profile new Microsoft purchase

Blogger SKULLZI, previously noted for a number of truthful leaks regarding Starfield, said he had heard “crazy rumors” about a potential new Microsoft purchase.

The insider did not confirm anything and warned users to blindly believe any publications on this topic, but noted that if the information turns out to be true, it could cause heated discussions regarding the laws on monopoly in the market .

“I’m hearing CRAZY RUMORS about another big potential Microsoft purchase. I don’t want to say anything specific because I don’t even know if this is true, but damn it.

“There will likely be fake leaks and clickbaits regarding a potential new Microsoft purchase, but don’t believe anything other than official sources. It’s hard to tell from the outside what is true right now.”

“I predict that many internet lawyers will be debating monopoly laws in the near future.”

Notably, shortly before that, an Xbox SMM specialist under the nickname Stein had clearly hinted at some impending news that should cause surprise. In an already deleted tweet, the manager described his reaction after the past work meeting with a hype image of Chris Pratt’s astonished face from a popular meme.

Other insiders and journalists, including XboxEra author Nick Baker and Tom Warren of The Verge, also seem to know a thing or two.

Recently, Windows Central editor Jez Corden, revealed during The Xbox Two podcast that he had heard from several reliable sources about Microsoft’s possible purchase of Take-Two Interactive, the company that owns 2K Games and Rockstar Games studios.
