They have become popular in the gaming and collectibles industries, and Pokémon is no exception. However, cybercriminals are taking advantage of this popularity by creating fake Pokémon NFT game that appear legitimate.

Stay vigilant and always be careful when downloading apps or games to protect yourself from these types of cyber threats.
