Apple has removed all three games from the App store. If you ended up buying on of them, you can request a refund through your Purchase History.

Buyer beware. One of the top-selling apps today on iTunes is a fake Pokemon game.

Dubbed "Pokemon Yellow," the game doesn't even work and is in no way related to the official Nintendo product. The app was uploaded by Daniel Burford of Home of Anime late last week.

"Shoulda read the bottom comments before purchasing, this is a scam. Crashes after main screen," read one customer review. The same company also recently uploaded fake versions of Digimon and YuGiOh+.

We contacted Nintendo and Apple for comment and when or if the Apps will be removed.
