If you have visited the app store in the last couple of days you may have noticed Pokemon Yellow in the Top 25 list, for only 69p, but do not be fooled this app is a complete fake, even if it’s description is stating it is “Just like the Original. Love it!”, it really isn’t:
????? “Just like the Original. Love it!”
It’s Finally Arrived!
Pokémon Yellow is here!
Your very own Pokémon legend is about to begin!
? “Fantastic and addictive gameplay. Six stars.” 5/5
? “Just like the original. Only better because you can play it on the most intuitive device ever – the iPhone.” 5/5
? “Hundreds of hours of gameplay, fun and collecting all Pokémon. Great app from Home of Anime.”
The app is not a legitimate copy of any version of Pokemon and doesn’t load beyond the opening title screen, and as we have already said it is a complete fake and most defiantly a trap.
As we found out a few months ago, Nintendo will never be releasing any of their content on any platforms that are not made by them, as such there will never be a Pokemon for iOS or any device for that matter especially not for 69p.
What we still don’t understand is how this got past Apple’s approval methods, how it got into the app store and how it is even still there in the Top 25 list, this is gonna be one big refund and apology for Apple.
