'First-person Pokemon' puts you in the shoes of Pikachu

A new video from Machinima imagines what a Pokemon battle looks like from the perspective of one of the inhabitants.

The video features a battle between two of the franchise's original 151 monsters, the Grass-type starter Bulbasaur and the electric mouse Pikachu, the series' mascot. Both Pokemon go through their arsenal of moves, from Vine Whip and Razor Leaf to Volt Tackle and Thunder.

Director Filipe B. Costa has reimagined traditionally third-person games from first-person perspectives before, like Sonic the Hedgehog and The Legend of Zelda.
