This Pokémon Go nature documentary is surprisingly cool


In another dimension, Pokémon Go could be a real tool we could use to capture the mysterious creatures called Pocket Monsters. We might see fun nature documentaries where we can check out all the Pokémon from the different regions of the world.

And if those existed, they would surely look something like this official video from The Pokémon Company International and Niantic. 

The video, narrated by Stephen Fry, is in the style of popular nature documentaries, taking viewers through the world from mountain peaks to the urban jungle and even below the deepest blues of the ocean. Around every corner are Pokémon, shown where you might actually find them in real life.

It’s a pretty realistic depiction, and a very cool setup for Pokémon in general. Pokémon Go is a great avenue and platform to build on for this documentary, and it’s pretty interesting to see how it all came together.

Stephen Fry’s narration and the score, composed by nature documentary composer George Fenton, help set the realistic tone.

It’s all in celebration of the newest wave of Pokémon that were added to Pokémon Go recently, and you can see some of them in the video. Plusle and Minun are hanging out in the forest, and meanwhile the enormous Wailord and adorable Luvdisc are chilling in the water. Mudkips even make an appearance.

There’s a lot going on here, and if you’re a Pokémon fan you’ll find much to appreciate about this cute little video. You might even want to immediately go out and play the game, too.
