    Japan has very strict laws about this sort of thing.

    Not surprising after the messages sent to Serebii and PokeBeach.

    Still... the fact they put forth the effort to find a leaker shows now more than ever that Nintendo's really cracking down on us. Before, they just went about their business, as if no one was leaking anything or uploading illegal images.

    Hmm... release for the next set of games will be painful I think...

    Well, Serebii's been posting images on his site for awhile now. I think (well, I hope) this'll all die down by BW's third version.

    Yeesh, didn't realize how serious Japan was about this kind of thing. That's harsh, but then again, he did probably cause wide-spread chaos (especially over the whole Fire/Fighting type thing). I just don't really know what to say. But I guess since Pokemon is such a huge thing, doing something like this would probably be considered out of line (to put it lightly).

    Seems so.

    Yep. We'll probably have to struggle to get any bit of info, I guess.

    Actually, considering how big this whole thing was, it's not that surprising they arrested him.

    This is... wow. Can't believe how this got.

    BTW, the C-a-D letters are not directly related to this. The letters were TPCi; this is, well, not too sure. Might be TPC, might be the big N, might even be just Japanese laws.

    I knew this was going to happen at one point or another. Sure it was a little delayed, but it still happened none the less.

    ...So whats his punishment for leaking the scans anyway?

    To be fair, Pokémon is such a big franchise that it has it's own COMPANY. Also, if leaks happen, less people will buy CoroCoro, so it will hurt their sales too.
