Former Pokémon legal chief says Palworld ‘looks like the usual ripoff nonsense I would see a thousand times a year ‘ and he’s ‘surprised it got this far’



Palworld is Pokémon with guns. So much so, in fact, that in its four days on the market it’s already been accused of straight-up ripping off the Nintendo franchise by various internet detectives, a claim the developer called “slanderous.”

But it’s not just internet commenters who have taken notice of Palworld and its gajillions of sales. The former head of The Pokémon Company’s legal team, Dan McGowan, isn’t mincing words about the game either. In a chat with Game File, McGowan straightforwardly said Palworld “looks like the usual ripoff nonsense that I would see a thousand times a year when I was chief legal officer of Pokémon.”
