Pokemon Apocalypse is a live action/adventure movie. The trailer of the Pokémon Apokélypse movie starts popping up on the web but the question about its authenticity arises. The production value of the video is quite impressive and fan-made video gets dark and gritty. See the video of Pokémon Apokélypse, a live-action adaptation of the popular cartoon/video game/inescapable global phenomenon HD version given below and synopsis of the movie.
Pikachu, the most favorite Pokemon of Ash almost dies in corrupt underground Pokémon fights. Ash’s loved ones have been threatened by Team Rocket with guns. Ash, Brock and Misty are forced into the criminal subculture to continue to train and compete. This kind of real-world danger makes care about the characters in a way the cartoon never did. It’s super effective! Shogun Gamer interviewed the makers of the clip, and here’s what they had to say:
COREY ROLLINS: First off, this trailer has exceptional production value for a fan-fiction piece. Was this a side project for fun? Part of a university program?
LEE MAJDOUB: It was a side project we came up with while working on a short film. We were talking about live-action ideas. Kial wanted GTA. I wanted Dragon Ball Z. I think somebody mentioned something about Pokemon and Kial and I made eye contact and ideas just started flowing. Kial wrote a script almost immediately. I read it and sent him back my thoughts, and we did that back and forth for a while. We actually wrote it as a film and filmed full scenes. We wanted to make it as legitimate as possible. Major kudos to Kial for actually taking the first step.
KIAL NATALE: This project really snowballed out of control. For me, it started off as an attempt to make a video on par with College Humor’s original content: their parodies are spot on, with amazing production value. Somewhere down the line, however, my long dormant Pokémon fanaticism kicked in and I just wanted it to be more and more. I started adding more scenes and re-working the Pokémon effects: for anyone who thought our CG looks bad now, you should have seen them before!
