For what purpose?
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.
>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.
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.
Next gen not is one Region, is the clash of regions,.....IS ALL THE POKEWORLD!!!
Gen 7 plays in India.

It's like they are trying to tell us something.
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?
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
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)
>tfw no one has noticed the hidden 3ds game reveal in this trailer but me
>tfw no one will notice it even after reading this post
Get hype for the official trailer coming in the next direct though guys
Not that guy, but his is either a new symbol, the Team Flare symbol as an easter egg, or me overreaching.
That's all I found.
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.
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.
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.
ever since I was a boy it has always been my dream to play pokemon in a stadium, with my pokemon being projected out like holograms so I can finally stand next to them
so the end of that commercial made me feel feelings
>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
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.
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.
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.
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""
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
>As some anon said, little girl beating older men, in a field ruled by guys
>Black guy being, cool and leader of his team
>Asian guy being each of us, every champ in the making, since nobody knows what Pokemon was he sending to the field
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.
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
