Random: The Pokémon Company Re-Uploads Its Pokémon Unite Videos, And Fans Aren’t Happy


Last month, when The Pokémon Company revealed its new online battle game Pokémon Unite, eagle-eyed trainers noticed the Nintendo Switch featured in the promotional trailer was incorrectly mirrored.

The Pokémon Company has now addressed this editing error (as can be seen above), but in the process, it’s taken down all of the existing videos. The official Pokémon Singapore YouTube channel confirms this:

Due to inaccuracy in the footage, we corrected the video and reuploaded it.

The original Pokémon Unite presentation video – which racked up more than 150,000 dislikes in less than a day – has now also been privatised.

To put things in perspective, the latest reveal by The Pokémon Company managed to outdo Nintendo’s E3 2015 announcement – Metroid Prime: Federation Force for the 3DS, which has over 90,000 dislikes to date.

As you can imagine, The Pokémon Company’s decision to re-upload all of its videos related to Pokémon Unite has only enraged some fans. Yet again, the amount of ‘Dislikes’ on each of these videos is quickly outpacing the number ‘Likes’.

Here’s one of the many comments underneath the re-uploads:

Víctor Vera22 We don’t like what The Pokemon Company has become, how would you understand? Doing this, deleting the old videos and reuploading them only demonstrates that you don’t care about fans, you just care about image. It’s sad.

While many Pokémon fans believe The Pokemon Company did this because it is worried about its “image”, Serebii.net webmaster Joe Merrick thinks if it was that concerned about fan reception to Unite, it would take the following action:

If they wanted to remove dislikes, they’d just disable them

What are your own thoughts about all of this? Did you give Pokémon Unite a thumbs up or a thumbs down when you first saw it? Leave a comment below.
