DMCA’d Palworld modder takes his revenge on Nintendo with a ‘legally distinct pocket creatures’ mod featuring yellow rat, fire fox, and Saul Goodman

Nintendo is a legendarily litigious company—with mods and emulation often falling under the gaze of its burning, all-seeing eye. Nexus Mods has even enacted a unilateral ban on Pokémon conversion mods for Palworld, citing Nintendo’s record of “mercilessly submitting legal challenges.”

As is the case with YouTuber Toasted Shoes, who received a DMCA notice after uploading a teaser trailer for a Palworld to Pokémon mod to Twitter. He explains in a video that “we were planning on releasing [the mod] for free on Nexus”, which clearly isn’t possible anymore. The intended video went up on YouTube, but before it could even hit 100,000 views it was taken down. Not one to be stopped, Toasted Shoes’ team of modders has instead devised an infernal concoction of bootleg Pokémon, straight from the pits of Hades.
