A counterfeit version of Nintendo’s popular Pokemon Yellow managed to climb to #3 on the paid app charts, according to Arstechnica.com.

“Apple doesn’t appear to perform any sort of legal check before putting an app on the store… Instead Apple relies on copyright holders to file a complaint once they notice the app is already on the store”, writes Kyle Orland.
