Chikusei City police have arrested a Japanese man for distributing images of new Pokémon before their official release.

27-year-old company employee Matoko Sekiguchi has been charged with using his mobile phone to photograph then-unreleased Pokémon and sharing them online. The incident, which took place on Sept. 1, involved six pictures of Janovy, Chaobu and Futachimaru. The three Pokémon were scheduled to release seventeen days later in Pokémon Black and White.

The images were found on a "cyber patrol". Although police did not release the source of the images, they did confirm that the images were from the October issue of CoroCoro magazine, which was due out on 15th September 2010. CoroCoro often leaks ahead of its release, but not usually two weeks in advance.

Of his intent, Sekiguchi said:

I thought I would show everyone the characters that haven't been made public yet.
