Watch the Live Action Pokemon X and Y Launch Trailer


pokemonxy-header02-600x300

We at Toonbarn LOVE cartoons and animation in all of its forms, but that does not necessarily mean that we won’t pay attention to live action content purely out of a desire to be consistent, because we also love live action renditions of popular animated franchises. Case in point, Nintendo’s launch trailer for Pokemon X and Y, which is live action but contains CG, and melds the two mediums perfectly together.

The video features live-action trainers and CG rendered Pokemon – with the trainers showcasing various Pokemon and their evolved forms (it was really neat to see a Charmander eventually be replaced by a Charizard after a scene change, and the pokeballs were also cool to see in action outside of cartoons and games.) You can check out the video below:
