After leaked footage from Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet went viral this week, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are aggressively targeting unauthorized content with copyright strikes, according to leakers.

Several prominent Pokémon fan and leak accounts reported they and others received Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) strikes shortly after they published leaked footage and screenshots purported to be from the Scarlet and Violet games. The footage included a grainy photo with what appears to be Fuecoco’s evolution, other unannounced Pokémon, and a 30-second clip from the games’ introduction cinematic. Many of the images have been removed from social media following or anticipating the copyright strikes, but some remain elsewhere on the internet.
