Pokemon Essentials: Pokémon Essentials, the go-to creation tool for pocket monster fan games, is no longer available following a takedown notice from Nintendo. While the Japanese game developer is infamous for shutting down unofficial games, Pokémon Essentials is a unique instance where the company also shuttered the tool’s Wiki, thereby attempting to erase the information necessary to make Pokémon fan games in the first place.
Essential is a collection of gameplay-altering original code designed for use in an RPG Maker XP game. This wiki contains documentation for that original code and is itself 100% original information. Images on this wiki are used for illustrative purposes and qualify as Fair Use. There are no download links to any copyrighted or trademarked materials on this wiki. Any ads you see are put there by Wikia for Wikia; no one but they profit off them.
While many average video game fans might have never heard of Pokémon Essentials, it was the biggest resource for making Pokémon fan games. That is to say, millions of people have played the products of Pokémon Essentials, a tool that has been downloaded by amateur game developers hundreds of thousands of times since its creation in 2007. Essentials were favored by enthusiasts because it made game creation easy by providing full tilesets, maps, music, and sprites that players can drag and drop, while also having all of Pokémon’s classic role-playing mechanics built into the interface. Fans also added to Essentials’ functionality by distributing their own custom resources.

wie manche von euch es sicherlich schon mitbekommen haben, ist seit Gestern die offizielle Wiki-Seite von Pokémon Essentials nicht mehr aufrufbar. Der Grund hierfür ist, dass das Wiki, sowie sämtliche Downloads zu Pokémon Essentials aufgrund des Urheberrechtsanspruchs seitens Nintendo entfernt worden sind.
Was bedeutet das konkret? Die Anwälte von Nintendo wurden auf das Projekt aufmerksam und haben rechtliche Schritte eingeleitet. Damit steht die Zukunft von Pokémon Essentials offen. Ich habe zur Zeit keinerlei Informationen darüber, wie Pokémon Essentials in Zukunft weiterlaufen wird, geschweige denn, ob es überhaupt an der Stelle fortgesetzt wird. Dementsprechend steht natürlich das Schicksal dieser Seite in den Sternen.
Wie wird diese Seite verfahren? Ich werde die Seite vorerst, so wie sie momentan ist, offen lassen. Es werden keine Inhalte oder Links entfernt. Was ich nicht tun werde, ist Pokémon Essentials hier mit anzubieten. Die Gründe sollten klar sein. Sollte diese Seite allerdings ebenfalls der Bitte seitens Nintendo erliegen, so werde ich die entsprechenden Konsequenzen ziehen und Pokémon Essentials Deutsch schließen.

Nintendo has always been know to rule over its IPs with an iron fist, and its latest decision is further proof of this trend. Mere weeks after EmuParadise took down all Nintendo ROMs due to fears of legal backlash, the entertainment giant has now shut down popular fan game creation tool Pokemon Essentials, much to the chagrin of fans.
Nintendo has already taken a pretty strict stance on video game emulation, but you’d think completely free, fan-created Nintendo game spin-offs would be in the clear – however, that’s apparently not the case, if a recent Ars Technica report is anything to go by.
Nintendo has always been known for its tendency to jealously guard its intellectual properties, and the latest example of this trend is the company taking down “Pokemon Essentials.”
As Ars points out, Pokemon Essentials is a free tool that lets the franchise’s fans create their own Pokemon-like adventure games using the paid RPG Maker program.
Nintendo has slapped the Pokemon Essentials tool with a DMCA takedown. After reviewing the company’s takedown request, FANDOM (the wiki site which hosted Pokemon Essentials information) decided to comply with the request.

Essentials’ ubiquity was helped by the upkeep of excellent documentation via a Wiki that could walk developers through game creation. “I cannot emphasize this enough: without Pokémon Essentials, it would have been impossible to make Pokémon Uranium, or almost any of the other Pokémon fan games that are out there,” Voluntary Twitch, the creative director behind a fan game that was downloaded over a million times, told me back in 2017.
According to Maruno, the last proprietor and developer of Pokémon Essentials, those days are no more. “The Pokémon Essentials Wiki, and all the downloads for Pokémon Essentials, have been deleted due to a copyright infringement claim by lawyers representing Nintendo of America,” Maruno wrote on his private Twitter account. A representative from Fandom, the company that hosted the Wiki, confirmed to The Verge that Nintendo took action.

As you might expect, users are none too pleased with Nintendo’s somewhat old-fashioned approach to fan creations.
“Every one of us could finish and release a Pokémon fan game and it wouldn’t hurt Nintendo’s bottom line any,” PokeCommunity user Nesty writes. “However, the very nature of copyright law pits corporations against people. It’s just a shame. I wish things would change.”
It’s likely that Nintendo is legally in the right here — the assets Pokemon Essentials uses appear to be identical to the ones in Pokemon games — but from a PR standpoint, it’s much harder to say whether or not this a good decision for the company. On the one hand, they’ve eliminated the possibility that some of the more well-made free fan games will ever compete with Nintendo’s paid offerings.
On the other hand, the people behind these games are some of Nintendo’s biggest fans. It takes dozens, if not hundreds of hours to create some of the free spin-offs in question. By so brazenly shutting down their creators’ work, the company runs the risk of alienating some of its most hardcore players.

“Fandom received a DMCA notice on behalf of Nintendo notifying us of content that was in violation of its copyright holdings,” the rep said. “After carefully assessing the violations in regards to the Pokemon Essentials wiki, we came to a decision to take it down.”
Nintendo did not provide a comment in time for publication.
The Pokémon fan game community has been left reeling, and members explicitly asked The Verge not to name them out of fear of repercussion from Nintendo. Last year, some fan game developers went underground after watching other Nintendo fan projects get threatened by legal action, and with this current turn of events, some communities are discussing how to keep a lower online profile while continuing to share their love of game creation with other like-minded people.
“The Wiki was crucial for Essentials,” one developer told The Verge. “It will likely live on in some shape or form, but many of the more organized entities are definitely going to shy away from … building out new things for the kit.”
The developer noted that it seemed “impossible” for Nintendo to erase the tool from the internet given that many people already have it and could potentially continue to disseminate it, but the community is still in shock.
“[The shuttering of] things like Uranium, Prism, etc., all made sense because they got too big,” they said. “We’ve always known this day would come, some are surprised it took so long. But people are going to continue to make fun games, whether there are Wiki and support or not.”
