Pokémon Black/White TV commercial overkill


4:00 AM on 09.04.2010



Believe it or not, Pokémon Black/White comes out this month. Naturally, this means that Japanese television is being assaulted with enough commercials to ensure that every last citizen goes out and buys ten copies of each color.

Above is the oddest of the five new ads currently making the rounds. For the first ten seconds, I wasn't even sure this was Pokémon. I got excited thinking it was Golden Sun or something! They're really testing the waters with this generation.

Be sure to hit up GoNintendo for the other four commercials.
