As Palworld continues to cherish and gather more and more people, drawing attention from all over the world, The Pokémon Company has finally provided a comment on the game, which recently quickly managed to get into Steam's top most-paying titles.

"We have received many inquiries regarding another company's game released in January 2024. We have not granted any permission for the use of Pokémon intellectual property or assets in that game," reads the statement from The Pokémon Company. "We intend to investigate and take appropriate measures to address any acts that infringe on intellectual property rights related to the Pokémon."

The company didn't explicitly say that it's going to "investigate" Palworld, but it goes without saying. As for now, it seems that The Pokémon Company hasn't found anything to accuse the game of, and only time will show if Pocketpair, the developer behind the popular game, violated Pokémon IP or assets.

Speaking of Palworld, the game keeps breaking its own records and selling more and more copies. In the last 18 hours, Palworld reached more than 2 million concurrent players on Steam. Adding to that, in just 6 days it sold over 8 million units.
