As a brand that's been around for decades, Pokemon has released its fair share of odd content. From Pokemon bras to Pokemon fishing lures, it sometimes seems that the Pokemon Company is merely trying to top itself. Well, if that is indeed the goal, the company may have succeeded with the new Machamp workout video.
For anyone who hasn't visited the official Pokemon Kids TV YouTube channel, it's a Teletubbies-esque place and doesn't have the high traffic that might be expected from an official Pokemon channel. While it has uploaded a few videos with several million views, at the time of this writing only five people were watching the channel's live stream. Maybe fans are feeling a sense of Pikachu overload with all the Pokemon 25th anniversary celebrations, though it's possible these fans simply need to burn off some steam with Machamp.
Enter Pokemon Kids TV's Machamp workout video. The video features three Machamps doing 45 seconds of stretches, 50 seconds of leg kicks and air punches, and, of course, 30 seconds of cool down. The strong, four-limbed Pokemon recently got a brand new moveset in Pokemon Go, and now, thanks to the new video, fans can see the training required to pull off such moves.
Of course, viewers would need four arms to properly follow along with the exercises, though it isn't too hard to do a two armed version of the muscle-building moves. Indeed, with enough rigorous training and dedicated practice, viewers may be able to pull off Machamp's in-game moveset themselves.
Nintendo decided it was best to go big or go home when Super Mario had its 35th anniversary last year. While it announced a hugely anticipated collection of ports in the form of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Nintendo also had some totally new games for fans to look forward to. That celebration may be winding down, but it's set the bar for Nintendo's other celebrations this year. One of those is Pokemon's 25th anniversary, and things are already looking up. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are the ports that everyone was hoping for, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus is the kind of new and innovative game that's great for celebrating how far the series has come.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus looks like it'll be a fascinating new way to experience the Pokemon world. Details are limited, but it's been presented as an open world experience unlike the core Pokemon games with more linear narratives and travel. What's more, this is the first game to focus on the mysterious and powerful Arceus, creator of the Sinnoh region and possibly the whole Pokemon world. The Sinnoh region isn't all about Arceus, though. It has a lot of legendary Pokemon, some of which have ties to Arceus that seem hard for Pokemon Legends: Arceus to ignore. How will all of Arceus' Legendary peers influence its plot?
Arceus is an interesting choice as the star of Pokemon Legends: Arceus. It's certainly an important figure in the franchise's lore. It's said to be responsible for creating Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, the stars of the previous games in the Sinnoh region. Arceus also butts heads with Mew in some ways, since Mew was thought to be a possible ancestor of all Pokemon until Arceus was introduced as another possible creator of reality.
