Straight from Cool Ape, it's the Pokémon colosseum movie you probably already saw.

It might as well be a parody of every Pokémon game , with the core joke being that all people in the Pokémon world solve any problem with Pokémon matches, especailly if they don't make sense.

I specifically chose Colosseum since that game tries the hardest to tell a straight dark epic adventure, making the typical silly Pokémon tropes look even more out of place.

I love it how the kidnappers from the beginning of the game challenge the hero to a match to silence him after witnissing the kidnap. As if defeating him in a Poké match makes him lose his ability to still go to the police anyway.
Also, having a public Pokématch in a city filled with people obsessed with Pokématches hardly seems the best strategy if you want to sneak out undetected.

Anyway, Wes, the hero of the story. He starts off very interestingly, stealing an object from the villain's hideout and blowing it up. I mean, wow! A pro-active hero for a change! And bad ass to boot!
Alas, it's only the opening, as soon as the game really starts, Wes instantly turns into your usual mute spineless idiot hero.
Which is why Wes awkwardly wiggles around like a carbon cut out for most of my parody.

Other jokes need explaining? There's the obligatory reference to Wes stealing the other trainers Pokemon yet they never being bothered by it, and..that were all jokes I think.

Oh, some Pokemon I drew in the background are a generation too far to be appearing in this flash movie, sorry.
I just took a handfull of modern Pokémon to avoid only using the classic ones. Just imagine the too recent Pokémon were illegally imported by their trainers from the later Regions or something.

Thanks to Molly,Luke, Silvia, Mike, Matt, Stephan and Danbuster for voices.

Basically the whole Pokemon plotline;
some kid goes out to enslave all of pokemonkind
Finds some evil organization that has no idea what the heck to do
Magically beats all of their pokemon
Everyone calls them a hero

Why can't real life be like that, kick their virtual pet until it faints and then you freaking own the world.

Try it, kick a bunch of puppies and kittens until someone starts yelling at you, assume person is team rocket and beat their pets some more.
Soon you'll own the world.

I hadn't seen this since it came out and just watched it again, and holy crap, my sides. Even if Colosseum/XD never get a remake or a throw-back or a special or anything like that, they'll have something even more fun- this.

Heh, okay.
Weird to look at it like that.

random pidove? THIS WAS MADE IN 5TH GEN?

Sigh, no.
I just like throwing references to entire series in each movie. I like contuity, so throwing in a few characters from previous/ newer games.
Usually people like it but Pokemon fans appearently freak out and go mad with anger when i do it.

actually i ment " a 5th gen pokemon in a 3rd gen game?'

Yes, same answer.
