Pokémon X and Y Get a Live Action Launch Trailer

Alright, let’s admit it: if we were able to venture around the world collecting Pokémon on a quest to become the very best that no one ever was, we would do it. We’d quit school, work or Grand Theft Auto V, pick up a cap and some Pokéballs and go get us some Farfetch’d. It’s a notion that Nintendo is playing on in the launch trailer for Pokémon X and Y, which features real life Pokémon trainers and CGI Pokémon doing battle for supremacy. The trailer also includes quite a bit of in-game footage as an announcer describes the jist of the game.

Check it out below which, from the on-screen text and announcer, seems to be from Europe.

  • Tsunami

    Doesn’t look bad at all. Have you seen the Gotta Catch Em All remix?

  • trailstreaker

    I haven’t seen this one. Looks really cool! And yeah if we had the chance to be a real life pokemon master we will definitely quit everything in order to become one. All those great adventures, new places and people to know.
