I just watched this! Definitely cute. Reminds me of the fact that Cuphead tv show is coming out soon. Tbh, if I hadn't seen this appear on my Youtube feed, I probably wouldn't have even known it existed. ;; Scraggy in old timey animation was really cute, also. I hope they make more of these!

A friend of mine pinged this to me because of my love for the pantslizards and it's actually really cool! I love the style and the charm of the classic cartoon style and I would also love to see more.

Poor Scraggy though, just got tempted by Pokébeans and lead to mayhem.

I've always wanted to see what Pokémon could look like in a western animated style.

What I have seen is a really good interpretation of the idea and the choice of Pokémon to focus on couldn't be better, IMO.

This short was an interesting concept. It's not often that we get to see Pokémon involved in slapstick. Pretty alright, but I felt it could be better without Mimikyu vocalizing. It just sounds kinda odd in a rubberhose-style animation.

It was weird and great all at the same time.

I suppose I wouldn't mind more but it seemed more like a one-time thing.

It was very fun and charming! I liked seeing the references (the old-timey titlecards and iris-out effects recalled my childhood, what nostalgia!!!), it was also a bit funny how they sticked so close to the character model (not much squash and stretch!!), but the mickey mousing with the music when done was fun, the backgrounds warm, and the squash and stretch that was done, like the dancing train, was lovely, spot-on!

Just a heads up people, this short is now available in the Pokémon TV app with English titles! (Predictably, it's called "Scraggy and Mimikyu.")

Give it a watch, and if you've already watched it, then go rewatch it anyway! It's too cute!
