For what purpose?

>>25077356
It doesn't matter if you have little
or if you're strong
or if you're smart
or if you're ambitious
or if you're just a kid at home
because Pokemon is for you and the same way it appealed to people of different ethnic backgrounds, it can appeal to people from all walks of life in general.
>>
>>25077412
But I'm black.
If you appeal to me with a black football player after showing me some little girl beat a bunch of people at chess, it says alot.
>>
>>25077429
>little white girl

fixed it for you

it's a dumb move which reveals the spreadsheet ticking marketing team behind the ad are subpar — it's not difficult to look at a spreadsheet and tick boxes, and yet this team failed.

unless it was intentional.
>>
>>25077429
I'm Indian and not poverty-stricken like that, but it's just an example of what we see in society that's commonplace. Regardless of whether or not you fit that stereotype, it's just taking an example of what we do see to inspire those people, because they do exist, at least for the males.

With the girl, it seemed to be a more generic representation otherwise they would have had more girls in it. Remember it's an "I can do that" so it's probably something trying to inspire girls to compete with more experienced players in a men-dominated field -- chess, which serves as a metaphor for Pokemon here.

It's not about anything, really.

It's just advertising Pokemon in general. Not any specific game. Or maybe, every game, depending on your view.

Oh sorry, but the point remains the same.

A new multiregional generation could be great.

Sure would be based primarily only in one region, but the postgame could have a bonus as happened to gold and silver.

Who knows? Maybe a real world tournament On-Line?

FOR WHAT PURPOSE
>>
>>25077356
What confuses me is what the fuck this chess event is supposed to be. Why are her opponents lined up in a row with games in progress? Is she playing several people at once? Why is there a crowd circled around them with camera phones? Where are they, even?

It's not unrealistic for a wealthy white girl to beat a bunch of no-names at a casual tournament, but I have no idea what the tournament's supposed to be
>>
>>25077906

Don't you get it?

She's playing chess while a dozen people watch.

It's not difficult to understand.
>>
>>25077906
It's supposed to be a reference to Bobby Fischer, one of the greatest chess players to ever live. He would play several people at a time, going from board to board like that.
>>
>>25077906
There are sometimes events where extremely high-level chess players will play games against several people at once, or do stuff like play blindfolded while having someone call out the moves, etc. It's a fun thing for people who follow chess. As >>25077928 said, Bobby Fischer, a child prodigy and maybe the greatest American player in history, was known to do that (and was also basically /pol/ incarnate)
>>
>>25077888
He's latino shitlord.

Mega Lucario spotted. This hints at Go being open to other regions outside of Kanto. Connectivity to the main game series perhaps?

It would have been 10 times better if the Pokemon were realistic looking. Instead the cartoony Pokemon took me out of it

Its not a Flare symbol.

It's not a fucking "new symbol".

Its old as fuck and you should all feel ashamed.

Man i don't know how you manage to stomach the games or anime then.

It's obviously a Pokemon GO! advert ya dinguses.

I played Red.

>>25078207

It's not a very good one, if that's the case, as it doesn't even mention Go.

Now pretty clearly it's setting the stage for Go to be a major part of the 20th anniversary events, but it's not itself an ad for Go.
>>
>>25078196
Because everything else is cartoony in the games and anime. It was just a little weird seeing live action with cartoony Pokemon
>>
>>25077535
My 11 year old niece has played pokemon since she was 4(which was my influence on her). Why would her demographic not be represented?

Hell, I started playing when I was about 11 or 12 too, back in the days of red blue and yellow.
>>
>>25078226
The denial is real.
>>
>>25078226
the very end part about the 20th anniversary thing will say GO during the superbowl instead
and then a release date in the next frame
>>
>>25078181
How do you know Blaine isn't a (former) Flare member?
>bald scientist

>>25078254

>>25078245

Maybe, but this is said to be the actual ad, isn't it? It certainly would fit, but why wouldn't it have been in this version, maybe just without the release date? No reason to hide what it's for, even if they want to keep the release date a surprise.
>>
>>25078207
So you're saying that Mega Lucario will be in GO?
>>
>>25078295

Yes, obviously.

so, what does it mean? pokemon go or just a regular pokemon ad?

>Why would her demographic not be represented?


The point I failed to make: the little girl winning at chess could have been black, with the football player jock being white. Or if they really wanted to tick them spreadsheet boxes with molten magma sneaker swooshes, they could have portrayed the football player as female.

For an ad attempting to reach a wide range of people from myriad ethnic backgrounds it made some heavily misguided stereotyping choices.

>Indians, poor and barefoot
>Blacks, big and strong hurrdurr
>Whites, well, even the small females are incredible
>>
>it's a racism thread
Fuck off back to /v/ and /pol/

>a white neckbeard pretends to be muh evil sjw boogeyman online

>>
>>25078442
What's the difference, seriously? In this day of age we shouldn't be concerned about who has what colour. A football player can be black or white, a chessplayer can be black or white. It doesn't matter.

Also, who says a football player is inherently dumb? The ad has no mention of that, that's how you interpret it.
>>
>>25078272
They hid it because it gives people more incentive to actually watch the Superbowl and see the advert.
>>
>>25078496

This is a white man's board. Get the fuck out

I fucking cringed at pic related. I can't imagine how my family is gonna react to this. They think Pokemon is for losers and little children only. I still love the series, but pic made me cringe, because they're gonna realize what it is when they see that.
>>
>>25077694
Yes, because the average normie is barely aware of the brand anymore.
>>
>>25078568
Let's be honest. They'd think that even if Vin Diesel, John Cena, and Morgan Freeman all came out and said "We like Pokémon."

They sound like those kind of people. Y'all cringe too easily.
>>
>>25078568
I just showed my aunt, she got blue version for herself to play with me when I was a kid because shes a good parent

I asked her if the commercial would interest her in playing a new game, and she said if there was a new game she just might play it

furthermore she went on to say, and I quote
"I think the point of the commercial is to show people who maybe don't know about it or have never played "hey look what you have been missing for 20 years""
>>
>>25078676
Exactly. Basically it says, it doesn't matter who you are, or what you do, pokemon is for everyone. And it is.
>>
>>25078442
You know, it always how you look at it
>Little indian guy being free to go whatever he wants, starting the real trip to be very best

It is not. And they made it clear with Gen 6.
>>
>>25079201
And exactly why is that?
This is one of the few games that both a drooling toddler and a twenty something (and more) neet could both enjoy greatly.
>>
>>25079201
I don't get what you mean by that. Both me and my 11 year old niece play gen 6, we both enjoy it.
>>
>>25078163
Nice find but it's probably just an easter egg.
>>
>>25077356
Why was Lucario the only non gen 1 Pokémon in?
>>
>>25078207
It's obviously not. It's a pokemon ad to remind normies that pokemon is still around. They expect people to look up pokemon and find out about all the normie pokemon games coming soon like pokemon go and pokken.
>>
>>25079670
but reminding them something is still around without letting them know something cool is on the horizon isn't going to do anything. They will say, o hey pokemon! scroll on google for 3 minutes or less, see nothing of interest, and have forgotten about it again by the next day.
there has to be the promise of a game
