Pokemon Unite Sableye

Pokemon bans

The Pokemon Company announced today that it has started handing out new bans relating to the Pokemon games on Switch as well as Pokemon Home for those that have been involved with illegally modified data.

The announcement mentioned how this data can bring about issues with the games and apps. As a result, some users may find that they will not be able to access online play for the Pokemon games as well as internet functionality for Pokemon Home. Bans may be either limited or indefinite, and there will be no refunds. However, keep in mind that the bans only affect Pokemon releases – no other titles on Switch will be impacted. The Pokemon Company may also take similar action in the future without notice.

Mario Kart Tour has announced that the next Tour coming to the game will be an Animal Tour. The Tour will feature a new returning course, GCN DK Mountain, as well as a number of new driver and kart elements, including a version of Luigi using the Super Leaf power-up. 

Wave 19 of Mii Racing Suits will also be made available, with this wave consisting of one suit based on the cows from fan-favorite course Moo Moo Meadows.

You can watch trailers showcasing the new Animal Tour and Moo Moo Mii Racing Suit below.

Across all of Nintendo’s mobile apps, downloads have surpassed the 800 million mark. That’s according to president Shuntaro Furukawa, who shared the figure during a financial results briefing today.

Fire Emblem Heroes has been Nintendo’s most profitable mobile game to date. The company has also released Mario Kart Tour, Super Mario Run, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Pikmin Bloom, and Dragalia Lost. The last one in that list, Dragalia Lost, will close its servers at the end of this month.
