While surfing youtube I found this old video about Pokémon. It might possibly ruin your childhood but its still amazing! Their is no actual movie though, don't get your hopes up. After watching this I started to think about the advantages of animation in shows. Looking back on my past of cartoons now I can see a few clear differences. The point of the video below is not simply to ruin your childhood, although more than one person has told me they will never look at Pokémon the same way. It is to help explain how in an animated reality the ability to put emphasis on specific aspects of the show can help cloud the viewers judgment about the show, even when talking about kids. For example, after I watched the video I realized, if Pokémon existed they would be put to work in power plants or would have destroyed humanity years ago by the sheer ridiculousness of their power. I also wanted to point out that many animated shows take advantage of how their characters being more iconic and can therefore commit acts that we would consider too over the edge if anybody on a reality show did the same, like team rocket repeatedly trying to kill half the cast with giant machinery. If the show was not animated it would be more obvious even to children that using a gun would be far more effective, a characteristic that many animated shows share. There are other more highbrow advantages like the ability of an audience to associate with a cartoon face more than a real one....but I just really don't want to talk about that stuff because that's a more scientific approach. If you don't agree with me or don't care about what I just wrote then comment on the video, the graphics are pretty decent.
