Are they really going to keep a camera on the same spot for 24 hours in the hopes that people hyped for the games will sit and watch for the whole time? This is one of the worst ways of building hype and interest I've seen in years...
I get where they're going with this, but I feel like it could've been.... done a lot better. Even more old Pokemon appearances every now and again would be nice instead of random bush rustling. @[email protected]; I closed the tab because there's only so much of the chiming on repeat that I can take before I start hearing it in my sleep.
There is stark contrast between fans' expectations and what the actual event turned out to be.
But I have a weird perspective: this video generates a natural feel of what you would get if you placed a camera in the actual, real life wild. This adds a feeling of reality, as if we're observing an actual ecosystem. Of course, this need not mean that this live stream is a good way to
build hype nor is it a good marketing strategy, but it's made everyone a careful observer, a researcher, for a brief moment at least. This is similar to what we'd do if we were on a jeep in a safari, waiting for animals to come up to their expected "hotspots"(the places they are expected to visit frequently), sometimes in vain (especially speaking of Tiger safaris in real life).
But to stream for 24 hours is crazy. It would have been better if they would have made it three hours long and revealed around five Pokemon an hour, few new ones among those.
By the way, best wishes to Serebii Joe for performing his duty!!
The galloping Pokemon from earlier may be Galarian Rapidash. The little rainbow maned horse may be Galarian Ponyta but still looks like a fun Pokemon. A long overdue Galarian form if that's what it is.
Saw a very close up shot of it galloping past on the livestream. Definitely looks like a Ponyta or Rapidash. Please be Fire/Fairy.
