they did it to pokemon uranium as well. not unusual at all - they just highly dislike copyright infringement. the only thing unusual about it is that pokemon fan games are fairly uncommon these days.
and on that topic, i don't think we're actually allowed to talk about stuff like this. because it's illegal.
Ah fair enough, the article I'd read about it being shut down said it was unsuaul for GF to acknowledge them, and given how many are out there it seemed accurate.
I thought it was just ROM hacking you couldn't talk about? This is literally just saying gf issued a cease and desist letter, it's nothing about the actual hacking nor even directing anyone to somewhere they could find out (as it's a ceased and desisted)? Apologies to the mods if even the mention of it is disallowed, but that seems ludicrous and borderline paranoid.
