Nintendo Questions

Following FAQ below are to clears some of your doubts about Pokemon IP and to give you a new hope in the worst case scenario!

Q: Is this an official Nintendo game?
A: No, its not! Its a Non-Profit Fan Project and its not affiliated with Nintendo!

Q: What are the intentions of this project?
A: To provide a game that i think people will enjoy. And to present an idea of anime style open world Pokemon game. And to ask Nintendo to make this game official Pokemon game, obviously only if they believe in the project's success!

Q: Why you want license from Nintendo?
A: By having rights to make this game officially, will open the doors to involve money in it. Then we can crowd fund this game and invest money to hire people to make this game better and faster. And with support of Nintendo this game can be what i really planned it to be, which is to make this game as big as "final fantasy xv". And with the love Pokemon franchise and support of Nintendo; it can be achieved easily.

Q: Have you contacted Nintendo yet?
A: Not yet, but i'll ask for their permission to make this game official, after i'll have something solid to show to them.

Q: But they can also shut this game down.. right?
A: If they feel offended or threatened by this game (which is not the intention of this game at all) they can ask me to shut this game down. And I respect their IP and i will shut this game down, if that's what they want.

Q: What if they decline your offer and shut this game down? Will that be the end of the Pokemon Destiny?
A: I'm afraid yes.. it'll be the end of Pokemon Destiny..
But then i'll create a new Pokemon Inspired game which will be different enough so Nintendo wont be able claim copyright! It'll be my own IP. So you will still have a pokemon alike game that you can play, if not pokemon destiny!

Q: Will Pokemon fans enjoy your New Pokemon Inspired Game as much as they'll enjoy Pokemon Destiny?
A: There will be no limit of what i can do then.. So, You tell me!

Q: Why not just create your own game in the first place, and avoid any possible risk?
A: Because there are several benefits in working with Nintendo, than alone starting something from ground up. And I also have faith in Nintendo!

Q: Is there a way i can help?
A: All i need is your support for Pokemon Destiny... share it, talk about it, help me gain more support. And leave the hard work to me..!!

Q: When are you going to contact Nintendo?
A: Soon... When I'll have something Solid to present.. maybe after releasing game's first trailer!
