Pokémon advertisement to air during Super Bowl 50

By Cat333Pokémon on January 25, 2016

An official advertisement for Pokémon will be aired during Super Bowl 50. The version released online is dubbed to be the "extended cut," created by advertisement agency Omelet. The TV-size cut will be 30 seconds long and will air during the third quarter of the game.

The trailer, which does not specifically advertise any Pokémon products, centers around the theme of training and trying hard at running, chess, and football, to culminate in a stadium showing another Pokémon trainer with a Gyarados, Charizard, Magneton, and Mega Lucario.

Easter eggs include "Like no one ever was" above the locker room exit, a Nidoking chess piece, Volcano Badge helmets, and ads for Moomoo Milk and Rare Candy in the Japanese signage.

The trailer ends with simply a URL for the twentieth-anniversary website, Pokémon 20, and hashtag #Pokemon20.
