Cycle Across Kanto – New Kickstarter Documentary Enters Final Days January 9, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

I felt the very first Pokémon game was so well designed, it had to be based on a real place, and it turns out I was right. The very first region players explored, now referred to as Kanto, actually exists in Japan. Now, a bunch of filmmakers from the YouTube Channel Good Blood are planning to do something about it! Here’s their official trailer:

That’s right, a group of professional filmmakers and athletes plan to cycle all the way across Kanto! I’m an enormous fan of travelogues, nature documentaries, History Channel, and Behind the Scenes looks at the gaming industry. This project seems like it was tailored just for me! If you’re interested in supporting the project, you can back it on their official Kickstarter as it is entering the final two weeks of funding!

Any child who played the original Pokémon games back in the day found a deeply fleshed out game world they could explore on their Game Boy handheld. It’s in-game economy, social hierarchy, and government closely reflected the real world, making the game’s story truly inspiring. In fact, if you’d like to read more about it, we did a pretty in-depth research essay into the Pokémon World you can read right here.
