Pokémon: The Gritty, Live-Action Movie

I love Pokémon. Unfortunately, as I’ve grown, the franchise hasn’t, maturity-wise at least. That means outside of Super Smash Bros., there’s little in the Pokémon world that I can still get behind. But a tiny glimmer of hope has been introduced.

This is the trailer for Pokémon Apokélypse. A fan-made trailer for a non-existent gritty Pokémon live-action film. It’s genius if you ask me. I hope the exposure these guys gets prompts them to make a web-series or short film cus I’d love to dive into this world more. In the meantime, head to Shogun Gamer for some hilarious in-world ads and photos plus an interview with the creators/stars.

I don’t know why hipsters love Harlem (or Jamaica) so much. I think since most of them are white and privileged, they romanticize those places and ignore the fact that they’re shitty places where everyone hates gay people and white folks. Oh well. Brooklynites will be Brooklynites. Except these guys are from Tuscon, AZ. So they should know a thing or two about racial discrimination. Alright, enough social commentary. Unlike their namesake (and perhaps somewhat ironically), this song and band are far from a shitty place that hates white and/or gay people. Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo from Hunx of Hunx and His Punx.
