After nine years of work by Pokémon Uranium's developers, and a reported 1.5 million downloads, the inspired fan-made game has officially been shut down by Nintendo---specifically, all the download links were removed before Nintendo could pursue them with any legal action.



Some truly saddening news, as Pokémon Uranium was definitely a game worth getting real excited about! Featured over 150 new Pokémon, a new type of 'nuclear' Pokémon, and dozens of hours of new content with a well-developed storyline. See the original trailer here:



This isn't the first time we've seen Nintendo bring down the ban hammer on a fan re-make: Nintendo gave the same treatment to "AM2R," a remake of the GameBoy classic Metroid II.

Gary Dear, owner of Mad Hatter's Ice Cream in Anacortes found himself situated in the middle of a maddening Pokémon GO mecca. Eager players have flocked from miles and miles away to his shop, where there are three Poké Stops located nearby---many end up getting ice cream after their journeying around.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expected it to end up like this," said Dear. "I've never seen anything take off like this."

Dear even estimates that his store's sales have doubled, if not tripled, on certain nights when the Poké Madness runs wild.

The petition, which was started up over on change.org has already gained over 57,000 supporters, and 'needs 75,000 total'. Harambe is a dual ghost and fighting type-- a gorilla who died abducting a child. His ability is “Meat Shield.” Seriously though, could any Pokémon be more legendary?
