Nindento Grab 'em ups are an innovative new multimedia franchise brought to you by gaming's greatest genius,[2] Trevor Gomes! First introduced in 2019, they have become the rage among all gaming and collecting nuts, and have received critical acclaim for their graphical quality, originality, and psychological complexity.

Creative Process

All Grab 'em ups are totally original creations brought forth whole from Trevor Gomes's mind on the spur of the moment. Any alleged similarity to other franchises (Such as Nintendo's Pokemon) is either pure coincidence or malicious slander.

Nintend0 Lawsuit

In October 2019, Nindento attempted to release a dynamic, luxurious line of official Grab 'em ups merchandise, however, legal complications with Nintendo Co. Ltd. prevented its launch. Some unreasoning, vindictive individuals have alleged that this was because of copyright infringement on the part of Nindento, however, there is no evidence whatsoever to back up this outrageous claim.[5]

Real World History

(Warning: The Following is top secret and not to be repeated outside the confidence of the 88bit community).

Grab 'em ups were born when Trevor Gomes made a stream incentive for 1200 subs that he would draw all 151 original Gen 1 Pokémon from memory. While he originally intended to accomplish this in a single stream, the situation swiftly spiraled out of control as Trevor Gomes made increasingly silly and elaborate drawings, even as they differed widely from the originals.

Trevor Gomes christened them "Grab 'em ups," as an awkward parody of Pokemon, and he and the 88bitcommunity swiftly embraced these wonky creatures, who have since become a key part of the channel lore. Thus, only a small number were completed the first day, and from there their creation has continued on and off ever since.

Trevor Gomes soon created the $8.88 to "snatch" a Grab em up, and they have since appeared in other projects (Such as Super Schlorpio Kart 64) with the universal conceit that they are 100%, totally original creations.

Also, while Trevor Gomes did at one point want to launch Grab 'em ups merch, it was never attempted due to the potential legal risk. There was never any actual legal action.
