Nintendo Definitely Isn't Developing Games For iOS and Android

A Pokemon game may be coming to iOS, but that doesn't mean Nintendo's relented on developing games for other platforms, with their spokesman commenting that their strategy "hasn't changed and won't change." So, if you really must play Mario on the move, get a DS...or download an emulator. [Bloomberg via Kotaku]

DISCUSSION

I know that The Pokemon Company is only partially owned by Nintendo and could technically make games for non-Nintendo systems, but doesn't Nintendo own rights to the Pokemon name and characters?
