:::You have a point. But, doesn't that make it still legal if none of that is mentioned?[[Ash Ketchum|<span style="color:#FF0000;">Red</span>]] [[User Contrubutions:Quadzar|<span style="color:#00FF00;">is</span>]] [[User Talk:Quadzar|<span style="color:#0000FF;">not</span>]] [[Ash Ketchum|<span style="color:#8F8F8F;">Ash.</span>]] [[User:Quadzar|<span style="color:#000000;">(Quadzar)</span>]] 18:48, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
::::If it isn't called a Pokemon game, doesn't contain Pokemon and is created from scratch (using even scraps of code from the games would be considered illegal), then it depends on how similar it is to the Pokemon games. If the mechanics are too similar (e.g. replaced everything related to Pokemon with something else but kept the same mechanics) then it could still be considered to be in breach of copyright, and Nintendo could still take action if it thought the mechanics were too similar. So yes, I believe bootleg games would be legal, provided that they aren't Pokemon games, don't contain Pokemon, and don't play too similarly to Pokemon games. In which case they have no place on this article. <span class="sc">[[User:Werdnae|<span style="color:#2D4B98;">Werdnae</span>]]</span> <small>[[User talk:Werdnae|<span style="color:#009000;">(talk)</span>]]</small> 19:41, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
