Japan: Nintendo and Game Freak file for three new ‘Pi!car!’ trademarks


Nintendo, Game Freak Inc. and Creatures Inc. have filed for three new trademarks relating to ‘Pi!car!’ in Japan. According to Japanese Nintendo, the filings are for a collaboration between The Pokemon Company and Toyota Motor Corporation for a ‘futuristic car project’ that utilises a compact design without using petrol fumes.

No other details have emerged from the trademarks that were filed on 13th August but Japanese Nintendo states the following:

All three applications use both the “Vehicle” and “Education and entertainment” categories with all three also using 42 product services related to the above categories. None are for a potential Pi!car! video game.

So those looking at these trademarks thinking that a new Pokemon game is on its way should probably put the breaks on and gear up for disappointment. However, the prospect of having a Pikachu self-driving electric car is both the stuff of nightmares and potentially a dream come true.
