Gotta Secretly Record 'Em All!: Alleged Live-Action "Gritty" Pokemon Trailer

September 15, 2010


This is an allegedly screener footage from a "dark and gritty" live-action Pokemon movie that surprisingly has a lot of guns in it. I have no idea if it's real or not, so I'm just gonna copy/paste the email sent to Shogungamer and let you decide for yourself. You're a big boy, you can make decisions!

I've been lurking this site for a while and I wanted to see if you were interested in posting this video I captured tonight. Today after work my friend and I were invited to view a "secret movie trailer screening." We were not told what it would be, but when I got there 30 other people and myself were shown a trailer for a Pokemon live action movie. It was super sketchy but I decided to record the last 30 seconds or so of the trailer which was about 3 min long. The clip is in a zip file and the password is "gottacatchemall." I can't give you much more detail then this. I wasn't supposed to film this, but holy shit it was awesome. I'll be in touch with you guys when I can talk more about it.

I dunno Professor Oak, this all seems kinda sketchy. I'm afraid we're gonna have to get another professor involved. Layton! Enough diddling your Justin Bieber poster -- we've got a case to crack.

UPDATE: A Geekologie informant who knows someone involved in the production clarified the movie is, in fact, fan-made.

Hit the jump for the "WTF did I just watch?"
