Pokemon Sun & Moon Fanmade Commercial Captures 20 Years of Nostalgia

on October 21, 2016 3:24 PM

With the release of Pokemon Sun & Moon, this summer’s Pokemon Go, and the yearlong celebrations of Pokemon 20 to coincide with the series’ 20th anniversary, 2016 has been a great year for Pokemon fans around the world and one fan-made video serves to capture what made the series such a landmark for most gamers at a young age.

A new video created by filmmaker and Pokemon fan John Wikstrom was released ahead of the upcoming new generations of Pokemon games, and while the video from Wikstrom is not an officially-endorsed or created project by either Nintendo or The Pokemon Company, it sure looks the part.

The video, called “Pokemon: Evolutions – Sun and Moon Commercial”, presents a look at 20 years of the series through the eyes of a young child growing up with the games, card games, and more, with a flash-forward showing that child as an adult who happens to recapture a bit of that nostalgic spark from the beloved series.

The full commercial from Wikstrom can be found below:
