My Pokemon Script
Sunday, October 13th, 2019
So in the interest of actually putting some new content out, I thought it would be fun to post this. A little over a year ago I wrote a script for a Pokemon live action movie that pulls elements from both the anime and the games as a practice exercise. It was probably the fastest script I ever wrote (only took a few days,) maybe because I’d basically written in my head way back in sixth grade circa 2003. The story really didn’t change too much from back then.
This was before Detective Pikachu even had a trailer (which I still haven’t gotten around to watching.) I’m not sure I have any illusions about this ever being made given some similarities I’ve seen in the Detective Pikachu trailers, but I think it turned out pretty good. It’s definitely the Pokemon movie I’d like to see on the screen, anyway.
It hasn’t really been re-written since the initial draft, and definitely has its problems. It’s slightly overwritten compared to how Hollywood scripts are usually formatted, and it might underestimate its audience a bit. Gotta remember, when I wrote this, there was no live action Pokemon movie.
Anyway, I’ve attached a .pdf below. Give it a read if you’re bored, and let me know what you think:
