You may recall yesterday that reports came in about pirate players getting banned from playing Pokemon Sun & Moon. Sun & Moon had been leaked earlier this month, and those who illegally downloaded the leaks have been getting blocked from playing the game online. Well, Nintendo has since commented on the matter, saying that “as a result of a number of Nintendo 3DS users using unauthorized versions of several games, and connecting to the official game servers in violation of our terms of service, these users’ Nintendo 3DS systems that stored the unauthorized game code have been banned from Nintendo’s online network effective immediately”. In other words, Nintendo confirmed what was already believed to be the case. The company is not tolerating piracy of Pokemon Sun & Moon.
