Nintendo stocks have dropped 18% after the company has explained that it doesn't own Pokemon, merely owning 32% of the Pokemon Company.

It is estimated that Nintendo will only earn around 13% off all Pokemon Go sales, which is a lot lower than what the market expected given the strong links between Pokemon and Nintendo. 

Right now most people think that Nintendo outright owns the Pokemon brand, which is something that is simply not true, causing the markets to overreact to the point where Nintendo's market value had doubled for the release of a mobile application that they themselves do not earn much revenue from.

Nintendo's recent stock price rises have not been exclusively due to Pokemon Go, with recent announcements for the Mini NES and game announcements for the Nintendo NX also contributing to this recent rise in Nintendo's market value. That being said it is expected that Nintendo will continue to drop in value over the next few days in response to Nintendo's recent statements.
