Q: Is it possible for me to sue Pokémon support for lying in their code of conduct and negligence

Code of conduct says “if you believe you have been mistakenly discipline, please contact support here” which is where I make support request ticket but after making one all I get is an email (This is an automated email response.) saying “we don’t respond to inquiry’s of that kind” or “ As a general rule, we do not reply to inquires regarding penalties, account bans, or fair-play points.” Yet ironically it’s an option for their support request.

A: Dear Mrs or Mr,

well this is kind of not so exact question, but I will try to provide an answer to at least some extent.

At first the question about "If you are able to sue someone" is very general and the general answer to this is that Yes, you can sue, because you can sue anything in this world. But there is a big BUT here. You must have a strong claim in order to win your case and thats another point - we do not see many details about your case.

The best advice I can give you is to ask a local intellectual property lawyer to have a closer look at your case.

I wish you a best of luck with your case.
