Nintendo has forced 11-year-old fan game creation tool Pokemon Essentials to be taken down by filing a copyright claim.
"Please don't freak out about the claim, and there's no reason to get angry with Nintendo or anyone else involved," wrote an administrator of PokeCommunity, where Pokemon Essentials had been hosted and distributed. "It doesn't need to be a bigger deal than it should be.
"We will not allow Pokemon Essentials or any of its assets to be hosted or distributed on PokeCommunity. This includes derivatives such as Essentials GS or Essentials DS. We sincerely apologize that we have to do this, but there is no going around it."
