Registered Trademark and Mega Pokemon

Updates : The latest list is here "Registered Trademark and Mega Pokemon 2"



Mega Kangaskhan was announced at WSC last Saturday.
When I saw this news, realized one thing.

"Pokemon Trademark Expands Merc Scope" was posted one year ago. It was a list that registered trademark by Nintendo, Gamefreak and Creatures in 2012.

[ List for registered trademarks, yellow parts are Mega Pokemon as known atm ]
  • Charizard, Blastoise, Gengar, Kangaskhan, Pinsir, Jynx, Gyarados, Aerodactyl, Mewtwo
  • Ampharos, Scizor, Houndoom, Tyranitar, Heracross
  • Gardevoir, Absol, Medicham, Banette, Latias, Latios, Aggron
  • Abomasnow
Mega Pokemon in Trademark

When AAPF wrote this article, checked trademark by Gazette only. It means did not check relationship with previous registered trademark. Now done to recheck, result as follow. Red color parts are registered trademark NEWLY (as first time registration).
  • Charizard, Blastoise, Gengar, Kangaskhan, Pinsir, Jynx, Gyarados, Aerodactyl, Mewtwo
  • Ampharos, Scizor, Houndoom, Tyranitar, Heracross
  • Gardevoir, Absol, Medicham, Banette, Latias, Latios, Aggron
  • Abomasnow
Blastoise and Gardevoir had been registered by other company when game released, so looks skipped to register. Not sure the reason of did not register Kangaskhan, Ampharos and others.
Blaziken and Lucario have been registered in 2002 and 2004. Mawile by other company but expired at the moment.

As for Venusaur why it excludes in the list, because trademark of Venusauris is valid untill 2019, extented in 2009.  

Also noted that list contains many final evolution Pokemon, their all type are unique.
So the question is why do they register these trademarks now.
Hoping the purpose of these trademark will be unveiled near feature.
