Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at the anime adaptation of everyone's favorite pocket monsters, Pokemon!
For those of us still playing Pokemon Go (me) or excited about the new Sun and Moon games, or just big fans of Pokemon in general, Legendary’s “live action” Detective Pikachu movie has its director. Rob Letterman, who headed last year’s Goosebumps movie, will helm the project, which has been fast-tracked for a 2017 production start.
Ah, the Pokémon franchise. It seems like only yesterday that millions of people were wandering the streets of their hometowns, eyes locked to their smartphone screens as they flung Pokeballs at imaginary creatures hovering over local businesses. The Pokémon Go craze, with its innovative use of technology and beloved cartoon characters, brought the popular animated series back into the public spotlight. And with news that Legendary Pictures would shoot a new live-action Pokémon movie in 2017, it was only a matter of time before some of the original films found their way back into theaters.
For a certain generation of fans, the Pokémon anime holds a very special place in their heart. Even if they haven't picked up an installment in the handheld gaming franchise in over a decade, or only briefly looked at Pokémon Go, the adventures of Ash, Misty, Brock and Pikachu are a cultural touchstone that many hold dear in their heart.
Beginning this month, Nintendo is hoping to rekindle the love of Poké-fans around the world with Pokémon Generations, a weekly series of animated webisodes highlighting classic moments from the games.
Ever since Pokémon Go took over the world, those weird, cute, sometimes creepy pocket monsters have become more popular than ever. Everyone has their favorites, whether its the beloved Pikachu, the dashing Ponyta, or that elusive Gyarados that they've been chasing since day one. But which of the original Pokémon is the best --- and which leave a lot to be desired?
We asked a panel of pokéxperts to rate and review all 151 of the first generation Pokémon and create the definitive list, from worst to best! We look forward to your furious repudiations.
The dream of a live-action Pokémon movie has been alive for the past twenty years of the franchise's existence, with fans around the world imagining the day they'll see an approximation of a real Charizard or Mewtwo on the screen.
Talks have been ramping up about that possibility becoming an actual reality as of late, and it seems our dreams may come true with the news that Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel screenwriter Nicole Perlman may be working with Gravity Falls' Alex Hirsch on the upcoming adaptation.
