The Pokémon Company may have a fancy name, but it's still part of Nintendo, and we all know Nintendo is good at two things: making video games, and suing people.

Last week, The Pokémon Company filed a lawsuit in the US against sports card company Beckett. Why? Beckett publishes Beckett Pokémon Unofficial Collector!, a magazine that while unofficial has, it's been accused, been printing images of Pokémon cards without Nintendo's consent.


Beckett's defence rests on the fact that because The Pokémon Company had advertised in the magazine, and had never kicked up a stink about printing the images previously, they figured everything was cool. Well, Beckett, turns out it's not cool.
