I just had to write about it. Its glaringly simple, a unique twist to the age old pokemons, and a new form of pokemon is in the scene. Mechanical pokemons – aka PokeGold for Niantic+Nintendo. The trailor (unlike other reboots) has stuck to its original graphic style, original pacing, and added new elements. No need to reinvent the wheel and disengage hardcore fans, just do what’s worked best. Now the movie franchise makes me think about “The Rock” who also has his own Pokemon and YT channel and is the highest earning actor in the world. Imagine that – a non-actor becoming an actor. A non-movie becoming a movie (Pokemon). A non-election becoming more hyped than the election – GOT elections.
Why? – Audience. Pokemon’s got millions of fans who play the game, meet at conventions and are mesmerised completely with the story. Young kids are still playing the game, unlike others that were popular in the 90s.
The Rock – 60+M fans on social media, and people love him because he gave them a story line when they were bullied, and a fantasy to escape from the boredom of school
