You know, there is something very wrong when 5 minutes of footage from a trailer is better than over 600 episodes of proper television. And by better, I mean can't compare to it in any way, shape or form. Yes, this one trailer was like a day at the sweet shop when your 5 except for Pokemon fans. If you have seen this and don't know other wise, let me tell you something. THIS IS NOT OR WILL BE A PROPER SERIES!!!!!! (well, so far. I hope so but . . . yeah, I don't think we'll get one). Anyway, the sole purpose of this is to advertise the game and get you excited for Black and White 2 and if it doesn't do that it means 1 of 2 things:
1. You don't like Pokemon.
2. I would write the other reason but I'm afraid people won't appreciate it.
It doesn't have a story, it just shows scenes which will most likely be in the game. Probably the only reason as to why I gave it a 7 is because of what I already know about the games plot. What scenes it shows you though give you an example of what it will be like: going up against gym leaders, Team Plasma returns etc..
Everything looks great. Animation is fantastic (maybe even better than the movies) with everything moving smoothly, colours look like they do in Ken Sugimori's artwork and the effects look good too.
What is this madness? Rock remixes of my favourite Pokemon themes? Sign me up. While giving it a classic feel, the music makes everything more upbeat and dynamic so the trailer is that much more awesome. The voice actors did great jobs as well, with Hiroshi Kamiya as N being my favourite.
No character development what so ever. It just shows who some the new characters are (even the grunt enemy's got a spotlight). Maybe the only reason why I gave it 6 is because I liked the characters from the first game.
As I said earlier, this is solely to advertise the new game so you will buy it and on me, this campaign worked. I would have bought it anyway without watching this just because it's not a remake but now, roll on release date. I want this now!
None of these scenes will probably ever make it into the game but who cares, it was awesome.
To be honest,I really would like to see this as a anime. I think the art and animations look amazing, and the character designs are much better than the normal pokemon we'd watch. I love the sound effects,and the voices. The story so far seems very good aswell. Everything is a tenouttaten for me haha. I'd enjoy watching it alot,knowing me. But yeah,I think it'd be a great anime-type of thing.. ^^
Upon watching this trailer for the first time when it first came out, I was speechless. I told myself, "they're going to use this animation for an advertisement for the game, and not the anime o___O". The expectation for Pokemon just went up for everyone. This is not your childish game any more....
It's very typical... you get your first pokemon, battle gym leaders, fight evil pokemon group
This part amazed me the most. The animation quality is just as good as the movies.
The music got more up beat and the guitar in the background fits. Battle SFX got are more violent.
I know the new male protagonist is not as stunning, but hey look its better then Ash :D Besides the characters are for the game. Its still amazing to see new characters in action.
I watched this trailer over 30 times, ITS AWESOME!
For an Pokemon advertisement trailer to get a score 9/10 on my list, its pretty amazing. Its a "must watch" for pokemon fans and a "give this a try" for childhood fans of pokemon :)
This 5 minute short is ranked #427 on MAL on the day that I have written this short review. I still do not understand MAL ratings.
Hey it's your typical Pokemon crap, starting out, beating a "team" of bad guys and becoming the Champion, never catching them all. Which is just a 5 minute promo for the upcoming game, Black and White 2. I've always loved Pokemon because it was my childhood and I still do love it.
The reason this promo is so good is that it's far better than all 600+ episodes of Pokemon. It only shows a few clips of what will be happening in the game, and it's Pokemon, so there's no story at all. But it has great art and music which will obviously never be used in the real shows. It's more badass and hype, not the same old "Ash's story" Pokemon show which is lame as ass and fuckin boring. Even though it's just for advertising the game which I will buy of course, it's better than current Pokemon. I'd rather have this than what we have now.
So all it is, is a 5 minute promo of the upcoming games, that surpasses all the previous episodes of Pokemon in awesomeness. And I honestly, liked it.
