No, the HTG community has not been deceived, the rumors are true, Pokemon is indeed coming to town. The man behind this project is none other than Sparck Valentine, producer of Dark Cloud, the highest grossing show of it’s session (with a movie still under development) and Fastest Sport On Earth, a critically acclaimed drama revolving around the popular sport of Ice Hockey.
The project is being developed under extreme secrecy and has a contest currently undergoing [SEE: So I heard you like Pokemon]. The contest is an attempt to not only bring the community closer to this project, but to build hype for the upcoming show as well, because the preceding weight of this franchise just wasn’t enough.
The names that have been associated to this project include well known names like Michelle Trachtenberg and Kevin Mckidd, as well as perfect strangers such as Marc Senter or Scott Michael Foster. All of this to contribute to well balanced and talented cast to help bring this show to life the best way possible. No official cast announcement has been made.
When reached for comment, most of the actors involved in the making of this show are excited with the opportunity to work with the young producer and in such a meaningful project as Pokemon. They are already counting the days left to begin shooting the pilot episode, which is scheduled to be in the next couple of days. The director of the show was also contacted and asked about the direction the show would be taking. Without giving away any details from the story, he said the show would surprise some people and that it was going for a darker, edgier approach – also that it will be live action. Good news for the older fans of this classic franchise.
Sparck, the producer, was also kind enough to lend us a few words about the show. However, he only addressed the contest, saying HTGers should expect a surprise in the final broadcast. The producer, however, refused to tell us the nature of said surprise, once again proving he’s being very cautious with the whole production surrounding the project.
Among the few details related directly to the show that we were able to access is the setting of the show. Pokemon is set after the events of Pokemon Gold, many HTGers’ greatest adventure as little kids. In terms of length, this show is scheduled to air six episodes on each of it’s two seasons.
