And the site is taken down and the rules of Smogon no longer exist.

What would your reaction be?

I don't think Nintendo has any legal grounds for a lawsuit against them. Why would they, anyway? Smogon isn't hurting them. If anything it's helping by raising interest in their products.

they'd still exist. a lot of players rage and refuse to battle u if u dont use smogon's rules. even though smogon wouldn't exist, the ideas behind the rules would.

The only things they can take down are Pokemon Showdown and PO.

The battle simulator could theoretically come under fire, but given they've existed for years and Nintendo hasn't lifted a finger... the Pokemon analyses are almost certainly safe though.

this. if people arent playing the games on the console/handheld and are playing it for free online, then Nintendo could go after them.

The end is nigh! *continues playing game*

Pokemon online looks stupid.

I rather play a game that is actually made by the company. Not some copyright brat
