Yes it is illegal, and do you actually think they'd accept ideas from the public? no. It's basically using their characters without permission. resides, do you think they'd actually use your ideas? Hell no.

 No, it is not illegal to send game ideas. It's only illegal if you acutally make the game, using their characters. Even if you were to send Nintendo a game idea, using their characters, it's not copyright infringement until you actually create the game. And pretty much any material you send to Nintendo, whether it be art, music, and I would imagine game ideas, you forfeit ownership.
 I also find it unlikely they would actually use it.
