Although fans can get a better look at gameplay before release, these leaks may also contain spoilers that Nintendo wants to protect and Twitter already removed lots of these leaks after receiving "a report from the copyright holder".

Pokémon games getting leaked online before street date and being sold early are becoming a norm these days. Those who want to stay away from any spoilers will be well-advised to mute all Pokémon-related words on Twitter for now.

Pokémon fan-community is particularly divided when it comes to leaks and some would wait patiently for their experience to be a surprise. Another group wants to get an advanced copy for content or just wait until the "Leak Season".
