On January 25th, The Pokemon Company issued a statement regarding the buzz around Palworld. The company promised to conduct an investigation to establish or refute the fact of plagiarism and other violations. More about this can be read in our article.

Apparently, such news has upset Palworld fans, who have started posting messages on Reddit. They promised to boycott all Nintendo games if the Japanese company harms Palworld's creators in any way.
