It's a shame that this trailer is for a Pokemon film that's never going to get released. It's got violence and sex and guns and torture and swears - all the necessary ingredients for a proper film for grown-ups. It'd be the best movie since Piranha 3D. This is Pokemon Apokelypse and it definitely won't be coming to a cinema near you anytime ever:
The short story behind the Pokemon Apokelypse promo is that it's a 'fan-trailer responding to the common trend of 'dark and gritty' reboots of popular franchises'. For the long story, head over to ShogunGamer - they've got a full-on interview with the people behind the project.
If, in a world of unicorns and make-believe, Pokemon Apokelypse actually became a reality, would you pay money to watch it?
