Google Halloween Doodle pits wizard cat against ghosts

Pokemon Uranium removed to “respect” Nintendo’s wishes

Pokemon is one of the most known, beloved, and perhaps even reviled gaming franchises, so it's not really surprising that it has no small amount of clones, unofficial spinoffs, and even pirated copies of the game.

As such, they have taken down the game, which has garnered more than 1.5 million downloads already, after working on it for nine long years.
