    Default Should there be a Pokemon live action movie?

    Hi Everyone,
    I was thinking, should pokemon have a REAL-LIFE action movie. I mean a movie with real actors, not voice-overs to animated characters. Personally I think the concept and idea would be cool :) But at the same time I don't want it to suffer the same fate as The Last Airbender the movie. So what are all your opinions? Should there be a REAL-LIFE action movie for pokemon? And also should it follow the story of the anime, manga, or games? Please comment below.

    Yes I have seen it. It seems like a cool concept. What is your opinion on the matter?

    Well, it depends on who's making it and how it's done, though I personally think the Pokemon franchise is more appropriate for a CGI movie than a live action one.

    I didn't bother to read more than the first three posts. It's such a dumb concept, I think personally, to have a live-action Pokemon movie. Pokemon is in anime to respect the creativity of it- if you had a live action version, it would make the entire franchise, "this is what this has to look like, this is how this is." The reason so much of Pokemon is left in mystery is for the player to interpret it on their own. Pokemon franchise is merely a base- the fanbase is the true life of Pokemon. It is up to the player, again, to decide what Pokemon is- not some movie director.

    Why would a live-action movie decide how things in the franchise had to be any more than the anime or the many manga adaptations do? Not that I'm saying it's a good idea, I just want to know how you came to that conclusion.

    Thumbs down Re: Should there be a Pokemon live action movie?

    Pokemon is fine without a live-action movie, as this franchise has creatures based on or resembles living things or objects. The CGI movie could be better, and critisms and controversies for a live action movie adaption could spoil Pokemon's image. Look at 1994 Mario Bros movie. The movie received too many negative reviews, and these spoiled Mario franchise's image at that time. Despite this, Mario franchise is still Nintendo's most successful franchise till today. If talking about this, why not talk about a live-action movie adaption of F-Zero franchise or Bayonetta games instead?

    I have never understood why people would even want to watch a live action Pokemon movie in the first place. What's so appealing about seeing "real" versions of the characters and pokemon?

    Nope. Animation works just fine for me.

    I am so glad I wasn't the only person to think "Dragon ball".
    But, while I agree with everyone that a live action would be a terrible abomination to the name of pokemon, what if it was Advent Children Like Cg?
    Pretty, yet still stylized characters, and great, and ungimmicky, looking creatures.
    I mean they already do decent pokemon cg, just update a bit more, and I think this could work.
    What do you guys think?

    I would watch it if one was made, but I probably wouldn't enjoy it much / would find it quite cringey. I just can't see how it would work, to be honest.
