Palworld Doesn't Use Generative AI, Says Its Creator

"Our artists draw thousands of sketches."


Palworld has been accused of "borrowing" Pokémon ideas since day one, and even The Pokémon Company said it would "investigate" the game, but eventually, I assume, it didn't find anything worth suing for as Palworld's developer Pocketpair recently shared it had heard "nothing at all" from the company.

Another hot topic for Palworld is the possible use of generative AI to create its colorful creatures. Some players consider the CEO, Takuro Mizobe, talking about AI in the past the confirmation of him actually exploiting the tech. However, Mizobe denied such rumors in his recent tweet promoting the August issue of the CGWORLD magazine.

"Palworld is often accused of using generative AI, but in reality, we do not use it," he said (via GamesRadar). "Our artists draw thousands of sketches. [The magazine feature] introduces part of our Pal creation process, so anyone interested should have a look!"

So here you have it, no AI this time, at least in the CEO's words.

Speaking of, Nintendo itself commented on the trend not long ago and rejected the thought of AI integration: "We have decades of know-how in creating optimal gaming experiences for our customers, and while we remain flexible in responding to technological developments, we hope to continue to deliver value that is unique to us and cannot be achieved through technology alone."

It also recognizes the intellectual property rights problem, which is not surprising considering its huge love for lawsuits.
