Nintendo Apply For Pi!car! Trademarks

Nintendo Co., Ltd., Creatures Inc., and Game Freak Inc. have applied for three new Pi!car! related trademarks in Japan…

The new trademarks are the Pi!car! (ピッカー) name in Japanese and in English (商願2020-100443), and two of the actual car design (商願2020-100444 and 商願2020-100445).

All three applications use both the “Vehicle” and “Education and entertainment” categories with all three also using 42 product services related to the above categories. None are for a potential Pi!car! video game.

Pi!car! is a futuristic car project designed as a collaboration between The Pokémon Company and Toyota Motor Corporation using a compact design, but without using petrol fumes.

The filing dates of all three trademarks were made on August 13, 2020, with all three applications published today in Japan (September 1, 2020).

These are the first Nintendo, Creatures, and Game Freak trademarks since July, when applications were filed for 一撃マスター (Ichigeki Master) and 連撃 マスター (Rengeki Master) on the 7th and Rengeki on the 21st.

Our last trademark post was for Pokémon Smile (two individual trademarks), Pokémon UNITE, Pokémon Café Mix, and Pokémon Snap. Full details are posted at this post.
