Default Pokemon Live Action

Okay, I was on my home at the Danny Phantom forum, and there was a discusion of a live action Pokemon series. Some said it was not a success, much like the Sailor Moon live action. My pokemon obsessed little sister said I should ask here. . .so, anyone know where I can look into this? Thanks for any help,

~Vlad Master's Wife

btw, I'm not on her account since she says this is a stupid question. That's what happens when a Danny Phantom fanatic crosses over to the pokemon side. . . XD

I haven't heard a peep about a live-action Pokemon TV show (about the closest thing to a live-action Pokemon show was some Pokemon ice skating show a few years ago with characters from the anime).

I would be interested in seeing a live-action Pokemon movie, though...

There was a live action show that toured the US back in 2000. You can find out all about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Live%21

If it interests anyone, the 2nd movie has a preview of the show on it. I remember seeing the commercial and thinking "What in the world have they done! This'll for sure destroy Pokemon."
I'd like to ask though, it said in the commercial, that a never before seen Pokemon would be shown, any one know what it was???

Dude, that was for Pokemon the third movie...*yawn*

Anyway, what kind of person in their mind would dress-up as Pokemon and want to play their role. If I had that for a living, I'd be Pikachu so I can get close enough to kick Ash squore in the nuts.

I do know that the commercial mentioned a Mecha-Mewtwo, but I don't know if that's the one they meant or not. I think the Live Action show ran before the release of Gold/Silver, so it might of been a Johto Pokemon.

Wow, so it wasn't a bunch of lies. Hmm, something I knew about Pokemon that my sister didn't. Now I have reasons to think the world IS coming to an end! Thanks for your help, y'all,

Yes, there was a Pokemon Live a long time ago.

As for a movie or something like that, it's highly doubtful. Movies off of video games tend to do quite poorly...

And with Pokemon, very good, very realistic and very kickass 3D models that could fool people into thinking they were real would be needed. And there is no way you could have people dress up as Pokemon and even think about it being successful.

I'm not saying it can't be done, but it would be very difficult to do.
