The Pokemon Company has publicly lamented the "heartbreaking" Russian invasion in Eastern Europe. The war sees nearly 1 million Ukranians fleeing the war-torn country as refugees, including children.

The Pocket Monster creator has responded with a $200,000 donation to the GlobalGiving foundation to provide humanitarian relief for Ukrainian families and children.

It's worth noting the Pokemon Company and Nintendo have made over an estimated $100 billion from the Pokemon franchise since 1996, and Pokemon GO alone has made over $3.6 billion in revenues as of July 2020.

Other gaming efforts include Unity, who has made an asset bundle with 100% of proceeds going directly to relief funds.

Doom co-creator John Romero also released a new Doom II map to raise money for Ukraine.
