This might as well be a parody of every Pokémon game , with the core joke being that all people in the Pokémon world solve any problem with Pokémon matches, especailly if they don't make sense.

I specifically chose Colosseum since that game tries the hardest to tell a straight dark epic adventure, making the typical silly Pokémon tropes look even more out of place.

I love it how the kidnappers from the beginning of the game challenge the hero to a match to silence him after witnissing the kidnap. As if defeating him in a Poké match makes him lose his ability to still go to the police anyway.
Also, having a public Pokématch in a city filled with people obsessed with Pokématches hardly seems the best strategy if you want to sneak out undetected.

Anyway, Wes, the hero of the story. He starts off very interestingly, stealing an object from the villain's hideout and blowing it up. I mean, wow! A pro-active hero for a change! And bad ass to boot!
Alas, it's only the opening, as soon as the game really starts, Wes instantly turns into your usual mute spineless idiot hero.
Which is why Wes awkwardly wiggles around like a carbon cut out for most of my parody.

Other jokes need explaining? There's the obligatory reference to Wes stealing the other trainers Pokemon yet they never being bothered by it, and..that were all jokes I think.

Oh, some Pokemon I drew in the background are a generation too far to be appearing in this flash movie, sorry.
I just took a handfull of modern Pokémon to avoid only using the classic ones. Just imagine the too recent Pokémon were illegally imported by their trainers from the later Regions or something.

Thanks to Molly,Luke, Silvia, Mike, Matt, Stephan and Danbuster for voices.

As a Pokémon fan, I have to say...

This was excellent. You're right. The premise of everything being solved by battles between cute little animals (well, most of them anyways) is ridiculous, and this touches upon that perfectly. The animation itself was also pretty good, but the audio left just a bit to be desired, as Godines96 already stated. Overall though, this was a great short!

Brilliant as always

Your video game parodies never disappoint, though I haven't played this game in particular I always found it ridiculous how the villains tried to solve all their problems with Pokemon battles. What's wrong with a gun?
I love the style of your animations and it's always improving, the first minute or so looked very good.

Also... Does the main villain really turn into a demon at the end? That's laughably cliche.

Bad sound, good animation

The reason why I grade it with 8 stars is because of the sound, it didn't sound well & in my opinion there was lack of jokes (because you were trying to be fun, aren't you?) And excuse for the English I'm from Mexico. But overall it was a good animation.
