This is the greatest piece of animation ever constructed by human beings. It must be known that I am only guessing that human beings made this, because the nature of this video is so other-worldly amazing that it is not out of the question for it to have been made by celestial deities on a higher plane of existence. And also Bump of Chicken.

After merely two minutes and change, your eyes will be shitting out pieces of your brain. Your life will be forever changed and you'll temporarily forget the collapse of civilization occurring outside of your place of residence, because this video is ...

Mixed Feelings
It would seem that to properly enjoy Gotcha!, some degree of nostalgic feeling towards Pokemon is required. Which, to be fair, is not exactly unexpected.
