Nintendo Apply For 5 Pokémon Trademarks
Nintendo Co., Ltd., Creatures Inc., and Game Freak Inc. have applied for five new Pokémon related trademarks in Japan…
The new trademarks are the Pokémon Smile logo (商願2020-73738), the Pokémon UNITE name (商願2020-73540), the Pokémon Café Mix name (商願2020-73541), the Pokémon Smile name (商願2020-73542), and the Pokémon Snap name (商願2020-73543).
All five applications use the “Machinery and equipment” and “Education and entertainment” categories, with all but the Pokémon Snap one also using the “Toys” category. The Pokémon Smile logo application is pictured here.
As expected, all the applications are for the recently announced video games. We posted details of Pokémon Smile, Pokémon Cafe Mix, and (New) Pokémon Snap, from the first Pokémon Presents, at this post More recently, we posted details of Pokémon UNITE, from the second Pokémon Presents, at this post.
The filing dates of all five trademarks were made on June 15, 2020, with all five applications published today in Japan (June 30, 2020). Check back for the actual applications to be added to the post once they’ve been uploaded. Edit: and updated!
The most recent trademark application before these five new ones was for Pokétoon, the new vintage Pokémon cartoon. Check out details for that application at this post.
