In reality, NO ONE except Game Freak, TPCi and any other affiliate of the pokemon franchise own this information.
So why is it wrong if someone takes information from Serebii if Serebii has no legal right to it?
The writeups and images are legally owned by me. While the characters, games etc. are owned by Nintendo, they do NOT own my writeups and THAT is the issue
has stolen pictures no credit
EDIT sorry Wild cherry I dint see you had posted about the same site , I only looked closely at the sites after

Credit to thaBlob for the awesome team pose ad Fear the cuteness!
You know, it's not actually "stealing" but rather plagurism. Stealing means to take something so the other person no longer has it. The thieves actually just wrote down what you posted on the site, yet you still have the work.
Plus, whats the worst that can happen when someone, let's say copies, the work into their own site?

“The God of the old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; petty, unjust, unforgiving, control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty, ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. Those of us schooled from infancy in his ways can become desensitized to their horror."
I am a Satanist and proud of it! Copy and paste this into your signature if you are too!
Actually, serebii is so popular that if another site steals content, it isn't a diffirence, just my opinion.
The picture captioned as "In-game map of the Unova region from Black 2 and White 2" was copied from the Pokéarth picture of the Unova region and altered to remove the Challenger's Cave and Route 10.
I know this because in the actual in-game map of the Unova region in Black 2 and White 2, Undella Bay doesn't have a green square - it's just the yellow line connecting Undella Town to the Seaside Cave.
Edit: Never mind this. Apparently, some squares on the B2/W2 Unova ingame map only show up once you've been there.

Did they ask to use this line of pictures from here?
I have the feeling they didn't, considering for one thing that they called the guy Gary instead of Blue/Green from Pokemon Adventures. I happened to see this on Facebook and so I began wonder.
The PokeYami Forums.
They have copied the The Infraction Points System.
They have quite cleverly copied and pasted, then just made minor edits to conceal them. For example, everything related to "Serebii Forums" is "PokeYami" there.
Note: They had also copied other things, but a certain member (I am not taking names.) saw this post and edit the "Rules" and "Trade Forum Blacklist" sections there to include "Started by SPPF" and "Taken from SPPF".
