  1. Has anyoen seen the rally commecrcial where there is a guy cherring on how noone will take thier pokemon. The commercial goes on to show people with pikachu banners and save the pokemon signs and it looks,sounds and is so pathetic. Why does a new pokemon game have such a lame commerical?? I wanted to ask all who did see it what they thought of it!!!

    Please voice your opinion because this is one commercial that needs to be taken off the air. :nonono:

    I love the commercial! It is so cool. They should do more commercials like that.

    Also, at least they are advertising Colosseum. I have had many kids at school come up to me and asked if I had seen it. The commercial is cool and so is the song.

    Personally, i think Nintendo could have made a better commercial for their "Who are you?" campagin that this. This commercial is about as low and the new (sorry if I offend anyone here by saying the product name) Viagra commercial where they use a really good song (Queen's "We are the Champions") and turns it into another lame s-x joke. Personally, I did not like this Pokemon Coloseum commercial.

    This commercial is one of their better ones. I like how they've been using older people in their commercials, not just little kids who are barely even old enough to know how to read. Showing a whole crowd of people supporting Pokemon is great... But I would like to see more superimposed pokemon in the shots.

    It's a terrible commercial. It makes it look dumb. Didn't they first have commercials that just had screenshots and a voice over? That was just fine.
    Gotta save them.... Gotta save them all (from this commercial)

    Bad, pure and simple. They show like 2 seconds of actual clips of the game, and hippies went out with the 70's. Keep it simple and give us like a movie preview of it. U know the Sonic Heroes commercials, those were funny with the old men pretending to be superheroes. Also, on their website they had a movielike preview of it. Why can't they do that for Colloseum and make something that will make all of us laugh, not just a select few like the hippies?

    This is a completely horrible and absolutely wonderful ad. Kids won't get the joke, but adults will. It's so corny it's actually funny. It's so bad it's (sorta) good.
  13. Today i watched it again on a tape i had recorded from last night and your right yoshi. It is so bad its actually funny. I guess i didnet get the joke at first *snickers*

    Ohh and im not a hippie fan either.

    You guys are so pessimistic. The commercial is funny, and no one has told me that it is stupid or anything.

    Now what I am wondering is where they shot that commercial and how they got all those people to participate in it. Where are the sign-ups? I want to be part of that "Mudkip Club" they had on the commercial. Hey, Nintendo, if you are reading this, make me a star. :)

    I liked it. I was watching it and thinking What...what is...this?

    I started laughing when it hit me: A Pokémon commercial!

    It was no "Who Are You" (the one with the Japanese kids crouching-tiger-hidden-dragoning to the video game store), but i liked it. I'm not a hippy fan either, but i found it...surprising and humorous.

    I liked the commercial a whole lot, and I think it's one of Nintendo's better commercials(like the commercial for Super Smash Bros. on N64).

    Maybe it's just me, but it's been too long since I've seen a mass of people that excited about Pokemon, and it just made me happy to watch. 'Who will save the Pokemon? Gotta save 'em, gotta save 'em all!' Plus, the whole hippy parody thing is just brilliant.

    Funny how many times I was reminded of Comic Book Guy while reading this thread... 'Worst. Commercial. Ever.'

    See, yeah, that was a good commercial too. I liked that infectious song. "You and me and me and you, no matter how we throw the dice, we'll always be...togetheeeeeeeeer." And then they started beatin' the magikrap out of each other! GOLD! Pure gold!

    Well, i think Nintendo has a very good marketing team. They have great potential. I would rather see so-so video game commercials daily than excellent ones every now and then while being bombarded with commercials about drugs, make up stuff, and shampoos! But Nintendo makes memorable commercials, though. This one continues that tradition. I have yet to see it twice though...

    Besides, they're PokeHippies, so it's not that bad...a real hippie in the world of Pokemon would have a Maganium use Sweet Scent all the time! :D

    Funny...very! LOL!

    Well, let's use our imaginations here. What would the ideal Pokécommercial be? For example, the Team Aqua/Mag commercial was pretty sleek. What would be better than a bunch of Pokémon loving hippies? Use you imaginations, those who seem to hate the commercial's concept. See if you can do better.
