Good morning everyone! So. I’m making a few changes to the website, primarily the name. From now on this website will be known as Active 8-Bit (the 8-bit part paying homage to the original Nintendo Entertainment System and the Gameboy which ran on 8-bit processors).
There are two reasons behind my decision to change things around a little bit :
- I’d like to focus on things and games other than Pokemon GO.
- I don’t want to get my ass sued off by Nintendo.
The name PokeFitness is super cool and I love it, but the more research that I do into the Pokemon name and trademark, the less I wan’t to have that headache one day (and I didn’t really expect this website to blow up like it did). I also briefly talked with the Video Game Attorney Ryan Morrison who told me the name probably isn’t the best idea.
I’m not at a place in my life, nor will I ever be, to get caught up in a trademark lawsuit against a multinational organization with unlimited money. I’m just a lil ole’ Donut that want’s to help people get into shape.
I figured it’s best to make this change early on this websites life, so welcome to Active 8-bit!
