They fall as quick as they stand. After just a few days of availability, a popular mod adding Pokemon to ARK: Survival Evolved has been issued the ill-fated DMCA notice.
Showing up on New Years Eve, 'ARKMon' picked up the pace by releasing two additional critters for players to tame on January 13 and followed up with even more through multiple updates either the same day, or on each subsequent day.
Though Nintendo was obviously suspected to be behind the mod's inevitable DMCA notice, PC Gamer has since learned that it was actually another member of the modding community who issued the claim. Though it's unlikely to stop the mod from making rounds through means outside Steam Workshop, it's certainly something that'll be hit with more problems of this kind as it grows more popular. And just as quickly as the notice was issued, it was disputed and re-uploaded to the Steam Workshop. So there's still a chance for Nintendo to issue the more permanent killing blow.
The Tek Tier Update For ARK: Survival Evolved Arrives Later This Month
For now, however, there's a long list of servers running a mod that, according you YouTuber Tikkstar123HD, already has every legendary Pokemon ready to go once the creator is happy with both the amount of currently implemented critters and a steady install-base for the mod itself. Much like Pokemon GO, they're probably hoping to make a splash in the community with the bigger encounters.
You can still check out the mod for and read up on each of the Pokemon being added with the numerous daily updates. Head on over to the mod's forum page to find a list of servers running the activity. Of course, you'll need a copy of ARK: Survival Evolved; something you can pick up here.
