Perhaps you thought this was going to be about a new feature film adaptation of POKEMON starring real life, flesh and blood actors as well as CGI pocket monsters.   Something that could join the live-action AKIRA and BLEACH movies that are currently in development. If that was the case then, I’m sorry to say, but you just got psyched out.  

 


 

  This isn't real. Sorry.
 This isn't real. Sorry.

We DO have a video of live-action POKEMON here but, in fact, it’s actually of some live-action roll-playing. Coincidentally, just yesterday, my editor was explaining to me the finer details of LARPing (as I’m told it’s called). Up until now, I assumed it was the sole providence of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fans, not Nintendo gamers, but my assumptions are confounded on daily basis, aren’t they? So we’ve got a turn-based battle between Ash  and Misty’s respective Pokemon, with some last-minute, possibly-illegal interference from none other than Pikachu. I find it assuming that the cosplayers seem to have factored lag into their fake-fighting, given the lack of connected attacks and delay of pained reactions.  Anyway, take  a look for yourself...

You know, I was about to pass snarky judgment on these kids but, upon reflection, I realize this isn’t THAT much different than the Kaiju Big Battel I enjoy so much. That’s full contact, of course, and, if you haven’t heard about that OTHER live-action fake-fighting with Japanese monsters, prepare for my upcoming article about it.

The Aerodactyl is a MUCH better actor than the Rattata. Just sayin'.

Ash is terrible he should be spamming the hell out of Hyper Fang or more preferably Crunch or better yet if he had taught Rattata Surf or more preferably Waterfall he should be using that. Oh and if they are allowing moves besides ones they learn via level up and egg moves and or HMs (I heard Fly in there) than he should use Ice Beam for the 2x weakness and chance to freeze or Thunderbolt for the 2x weakness and chance to paralyze.  
 
Although Misty is doing kind of poorly as well. She should realize that she should get some Ancientpower going for the STAB and chance to buff her stats. Rock Slide is also a good choice for STAB and the chance to flinch.  

 
  
Clearly these two have not played enough pokemon or just don't follow the rules.  
 
Anyway LARPing and furries not what I was expecting when I clicked on this although I had a chuckle before realizing these guys are going by the game breaking episodes of the anime instead of the game.

 

Edit:

Alright I saw Misty issue a Wing Attack command so I guess she knows about STAB at least.

Edit 2

 
WTF are you talking about Misty it's Ground type that is immune to Electric! Rock receives regular damage. Aerodactyl is Rock/Flying type and is actually weak to Electric because of the Flying type. 
 
If Aerodactyl and Pikachu were the same level and similar stats wise that Pikachu should have kicked that Aerodactyl's ass!

wow between the video and folks actually giving break downs about the battle I feel like way less of a geek. anytime I feel sad about my life I will just look up this video and realize my life could be so much sadder. 
 
I bet my level 2 Dodge Calibur could beat that Rattata and Aerodactyl in on hit lol

Dude you have self-esteem problems if you need to look up videos of people that you think are below you to make yourself feel better. It's not a healthy way of life you should get a psychological analysis done to see why you are so upset with your own life. You have to take pride in yourself for others to respect you. Classifying your own worth by comparing it to someone else is a terrible way to live.
