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.

I'll never tire of your videos Roger. So mad I can't do anything but love them all.

You're a curious case, sir.

You have good concepts on satire, but they're ruined by bad animation, crude art style, jokes that either have no subtlety or complexity, and one line repeated over and over again. (Although I did like your Sonic Free Riders parody) This one didn't really set itself up from the many other "in # minutes" flashes you make. Acting was decent, however, but it was quickly ruined by the awful visuals. I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just trying to give my honest opinion.

Its funnt but....

I play pokemon a whole lot. No matter i get the joke. i mean how do pokemon matches solve anything at all?!?!?! BTW i saw a guy witha gun in the beginning of the movie.
