More video games are being adapted into full-length feature films than ever, but there are some popular franchises that have yet to hit the big screen, like a live-action Pokemon movie. Fortunately, there are talented gamers who decided to put together their own video game movie posters for your viewing enjoyment. Continue reading to see them all.

5 Interesting Pokemon facts:

  1. After many years of speculation, an online event for HeartGold and SoulSilver revealed that your red-headed rival is in fact the estranged son of Giovanni, the infamous leader of Team Rocket.
  2. In Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, a developer at the Devon Corporation in Rustboro City states “I’m trying to develop a device that visually reproduces the dreams of Pokemon… But it’s not going well.” As well as Munna, Pokemon Black and White also introduces the Dream World mechanic which, you guessed it, visually reproduces the dreams of Pokemon. Who knows what hints to future Pokemon are in the games right now?
  3. The slogan “Gotta catch ’em all” has not actually been used on the game boxes since Gold, Silver and Crystal! It was dropped from Ruby and Sapphire onwards.
  4. Each Pokemon region is based on real life regions. This is fairly common knowledge, but what people may not know is that the connection to real-life locations goes a bit deeper. For example, Saffron City is considered Kanto’s largest city and centre of commerce according to its description in the earlier Pokemon games. If Kanto was mapped on to the real-life Kanto on which it is based, Saffron City lies roughly where Tokyo is.
  5. Examine your TV in Generation I or Generation III and you’ll get a description of a film in which “four boys are walking on rail-road tracks”. This is a reference to the film Stand By Me. It is a coming-of-age adventure film, much like how a Pokemon journey is a coming-of-age adventure for children in the Pokemon world.
