CoolGames Inc Animated: Reading bad Pokémon: The First Movie reviews

Surprise: film critics in 1999 didn’t “get” Pokémon

In this week’s CoolGames Inc animation, we fall down the rabbit hole of reading old Pokémon: The First Movie reviews from 1999 from actual film reviewers, and quickly realize what a great video game it would make. Just imagine a combination of Papers, Please and a visual novel, and you’ll have some idea where we’re going with this.

CoolGames Inc Animated is created by Polygon’s own Clayton Ashley — you can follow him on Twitter at @Clayton_Ashley.

Last but not least, we like to show off one CoolGames Inc fan creation every week. This time around, we’re highlighting an image photoshopped by Twitter user @TheLegendOfPit, who took the “Mavis Beacon Teaches Sniping” concept from episode 49 and created a wonderful, educational game box for it. We would absolutely play this game. Thanks, @TheLegendOfPit!
