Pokemon Black & White 2 gets an awesome anime trailer!

9:00 AM on 05.16.2012 // Bob Muir

Nintendo can sometimes have good ads that properly hype their product. They can sometimes have quirky ads that stick with you for years to come. But when it comes to Pokemon, they rarely have an ad made up of pure awesome. It's usually some live-action mixed with quick snippets of gameplay footage, which is fine, but not awesome.

This new trailer for Pokemon Black and White 2? It's totally awesome. Imagine 4 minutes of a Pokemon anime set in the game's universe, not the actual anime's universe, and with some decent production values for once. (Protip for non-fans: the anime universe can be kind of lame.) I know the game will not look anything like this promo, but I don't care, because I am even more pumped about this sequel than when I heard about some old gym leaders returning.

If you're a Pokemon fan, I dare you to watch this trailer and not have a big, dorky grin on your face the entire way through. I know I was smiling the whole time like I was still in middle school. Can this be the new anime, pretty please?
