Nexus Mods bans Palworld mods with Pokemon content in it

As Palworld has been gaining popularity these past few days within the gaming community, it is inevitable that a mod content for the game will be made. However, it is not a simple mod as it has Pokemon added into it. Unfortunately for those who want to try this mod, it cannot be found anymore on Nexus Mods.

Nexus Mods has already announced that they will not allow Palworld mods that have Pokemon content in it and they will remove those that attempt to include such content. They have also made an official statement regarding the topic:

“Given Palworld's similarity to the Pokémon franchise as a base game, hosting content that adds Pokémon copyrighted characters or assets into the game is almost certainly going to put us at risk of legal action. Palworld content that is uploaded to Nexus Mods and is considered to have Pokémon-derived characters or assets will be taken down. Our normal moderation policies will apply.”

But Nexus Mods clears that Palworld mods are not banned, only those that have Pokemon content in it as Nintendo made sure to let everyone be aware that they are looking closely at Palworld. This is not a risk that Nexus Mods was willing to take since this is Nintendo itself that is involved here.

“We don’t think it's worth the risk to allow this content to be shared in our community. At best we would have to deal with the headache of legal threats from Nintendo and at worst they may seek to take action against us and the uploaders of the mods directly.”
