    Hi there, I'm looking to start a Pokemon Go article based WP website, but I have a few questions related to this subject.

    1) Is there any problem if I will use images on my website with the game content like Instagram ones ( I mean copyright issues ) ? I'm not talking about their copyrighted pictures from Google or Facebook official page.

    2) Am I allowed to use keywords like "pokemon" , "pokemon go" etc ? I mean is there any law that says I can't use as keywords the name of a product just to increase my Google rank and to attract visitors on my website ? I understood you are not kinda allowed to do this with your Adwords advertisments only. In my case is all about WP tags.

    Thanks in advance !

    Just an FYI - Nintendo is fairly litigious - check out this, and this, and be careful.

    They are but over the years I have seen so many people just ride the wave.

    Who knows..

    Cover the bases is the best way I suppose.
