There is porn for the Nintendo NX buttonless patent controller.

I don't know what that adds to the conversation, but I think it's important.
That's old news, people have moved on to the Switch joy con controller dog porn.

Is it from Nintendo of America specifically? Because it's dumb, take pixiv (japanese website) compared to DeviantArt, that's way more NSFW.
Everything can be a fetish on pixiv: I once found an artist that apparently has a thing for 水虫 ... I also don't know what does that add to this conversation but I wanted to let that out. I wouldn't search for that term on pixiv though, it's kind of gross.

It's gotten pretty bad. I did a search for Sugimori art with safe search ON, and I still stumbled across buttfuck porn of Emboar and Bisharp.

Seriously. Emboar and Bisharp. That's not random at all!

Sure Nintendo don't have much legal ground here with fair use and all. Although I guess child porn could be brought up? I'm not totally sure, this isn't really the sort of thing I'm an expert on.

What I am sure of is that Nintendo could easily bankrupt nearly any site that tries to fight them in court. So I mean, better for sites to follow rather than having to deal with legal fees, in my opinion.

Normally I'm not a fan of Nintendo's policy towards fan creations, but I don't have a problem with this. No company likely wants to have their characters used in this way. I believe Blizzard did something similar for Overwatch porn and rightly so.

Google image search really needs a clean up. I searched "Wii fit trainer" to show to a co-worker as visual reference for a project we are working on... big mistake. The results become worse and worse if you scroll down.

Two of the "related searches" are "wii fit trainer bikini" and "wii fit trainer 34", lol.

You can up the censoring in google results.

Google needs to recalibrate their training set lol.

Out of morbid curiosity, what does that term translate to?

So to see Blizzard and Nintendo attacking smut artist with copyright takedown just feels wrong. I'm pretty sure it's not even legal but because it's on Tumblr artist risk of losing their whole fanbase. ]
Pretty sure it is. Nintendo especially presents themselves as a kid friendly brand. Giving porn a pass hurts their public reputation and their brand.

If smut artists want to be left alone, they're better off not drawing from an existing IP.

What's hilarious about this is the fact that if The Pokémon Company wanted to do this, the volume would be on a scale entirely different than anyone would be used to. There literally is way too much of it.

To be fair, there's already a tenuous understanding between TPC and smut purveyors, Pokémon art is very specifically not tagged as such by some larger sites because it had reached the point where it was being surfaced before actual Pokémon content on Google searches.

This makes me laugh way more than it should. I can only imagine the looks on those kids faces when their Pokémon google search goes wrong, never mind what happens if the default browser on that computer is bing.

Tumblr has been hit with these all year, but the veracity of nintendo actually pulling them is spotty at best, tumblr pussies out of legal matters so, anybody can claim to be nintendo and send an email to the staff and your artwork will get taken down.

The biggest tell is, Pokemon stuff (ie anthropomorphic pokemon furry artwork) has been the prime target, however all the supposed takedowns are flagged as "from nintendo" which doesn't make any sense, since The pokemon Company handles that IP, which means the claim comes from a fake source but tumblr chooses to not take risk and just take down the offending content.

It's an easy to abuse system.
It really is and it affects artists too. Their blogs can be taken down which is their way to show their work. This purge crap is a losing battle. People can draw whatever porn they want.

I'm all for this. It's impossible to search "Pokemon" on Twitter and not see some, uh, questionable accounts.

People will draw porn of it anyway but when your game has characters like this

its like, c'mon yo. Your games already pretty horny. Same with Overwatch, just look at Widowmaker, Genji, McCree and D.VA and you just made the porn yourself almost

Bikinis and Pokémon are totally unrelated.
