Last month when The Pokémon Company launched its new online fighting game Pokémon uniteTrainers with eagle eyes noticed that the Nintendo Switch shown in the advertising trailer was incorrectly mirrored.
The Pokémon Company has now fixed this editing error (as seen above), but it will remove all existing videos. The official Pokémon Singapore YouTube channel confirms this:
Due to inaccuracies in the footage, we corrected the video and uploaded it again.
Pokémon Unite’s original presentation video, which generated over 150,000 dislikes in less than a day, has now also been privatized.
To put things in perspective, the latest Pokémon Company unveiling has managed to outperform Nintendo̵
As you can imagine, the Pokémon Company’s decision to re-upload all of the Pokémon Unite videos only made some fans angry. Again, the number of “dislikes” in each of these videos quickly exceeds the number of “dislikes”.
Here is one of the many comments under the re-uploads:
Víctor Vera22 We don’t like what happened to The Pokemon Company. How would you understand that? If you do this, delete the old videos and upload them again, it only shows that you are not interested in fans, but only in the picture. It is sad.
While many Pokémon fans believe The Pokemon Company did this because of concerns about its “image,” Serebii.net webmaster Joe Merrick believes that it would have already taken action if it was about receiving fans at Unite:
If they wanted to get rid of aversions, they would just turn them off
