Pokémon for iPhone?! Apple's quality control under fire again...

"Scam" Pokemon Yellow makes it on to the App Store

A "scam" app claiming to replicate Nintendo's Pokémon Yellow has appeared on the iOS App Store, once again highlighting Apple's questionable quality control.


A company called Home of Anime is selling the App, which costs £0.69 and is described as "just like the original. Only better because you can play it on the most intuitive device ever".

App Store users have less pleasant things to say about the knock off, however: angry customers are calling the game a "scam", calling for refunds and claiming the app doesn't even load.

Earlier this month Apple was forced to pull Angry Birds and Temple Run clones that had somehow made it on to the App Store, and even reached the top 25 selling apps.
