In social networks have appeared different messages that indicate dialogues classified as sexist, homophobic and racist, in addition to the use of a large number of regional stereotypes.

For its part, the head of this title, EricLostie, has explained that his work has an obvious humorous and sarcastic tone, something that warns in the game itself, and that does not exist. No offensive intentionality, while encouraging fans to play and discover the cultural background I have tried to create.
After the controversy, the head of Pokémon Iberia has posted a message on his Twitter profile in which I confirmed some changes in his game, such as the combat helicopter in which the player’s character was converted if he chose to be a non-binary genre at the start of his game. This update also adds different technical improvements to stability or performance, but it has been changes in content that have most caught the attention of fans, who remain divided between defenders and detractors.
This is not the only Pokémon-related controversy that has stoked fans’ spirits these days, as many Pokémon Sword and Shield fans are demanding the dismissal of Junichi Masuda.
