Pokemon Uranium Removed...!?

So just recently (about two days ago ) the creators of the long awaited game "Pokemon Uranium" have suddenly removed all of their download links to their game.

Pokemon Uranium has reached more than 1.5 million Downloads ! 

Here is the full statement from the website

"After receiving more than 1,500,000 downloads of our game, we have been notified of multiple take down notices from lawyers representing Nintendo of America. While we have not personally been contacted, it’s clear what their wishes are, and we respect those wishes deeply.

"Therefore, we will no longer provide official download links for the game through our website. We have no connection to fans who reupload the game files to their own hosts, and we cannot verify that those download links are all legitimate. We advise you to be extremely cautious about downloading the game from unofficial sources.

"We are blown away by the response this game has received, and we thank you all so much for your outstanding support. We will continue to provide Pokemon Uranium-related news and updates through our official channels. You are welcome to continue discussing and sharing content related to the game on our forums and Discord, where there is a very active community.

"Thank you for reading, and let's share the love of Pokemon!"

My Thoughts on this

See I think that Nintendo shouldn't be really picky about fan man games. I mean this shows that we all love pokemon and we want to create our own versions of it which really expands the pokemon universe a bit. I just really think they should be a towards more accepting of created games from its fans but I understand why they did it.  

Original Story of Pokemon Uranium

Pokemon Uranium takes place in the lush, diverse Tandor region, home to over 150 new and unique species of Pokemon. Tandor is known for its world famous Tandor Regional Championship, where Trainers from all across the Pokemon world compete for the honor of being crowned Champion. In order to qualify, they must first collect all 8 Gym Badges from various towns and cities across the region.

The hero, a teenager who grew up in Moki Town, begins their adventure reluctantly. After their mother Lucille diappeared ten years ago in a nuclear catastrophe, their father Kellyn, the top Pokemon Ranger in the Tandor Ranger Union, left them to grow up with their elderly Auntie in Moki Town. Now that they are grown up, they leave home and do what so many young people do and take up Pokémon Training as an occupation.

Things aren't as sunny as they first seem, though. Just when the accident ten years ago had been all but forgotten, new mysteries emerge. A new power plant is built over the site of the old one. Kellyn begins acting strangely, journeying to the far reaches of the region and questioning whether your mother is really deceased. Sinister Pokemon, corrupted by nuclear radiation, threaten innocent people. In the midst of the turmoil, it seems that an impending disaster is looming over Tandor... and there might be only one person who can prevent it.
