Watch this short Pokémon Go nature documentary narrated by Stephen Fry

New, 6 comments

Over the last few weeks, the developers at Niantic have added a new wave of creatures to Pokémon Go, along with exciting new features like dynamic, real-time weather. To celebrate, the studio just released… a short nature documentary spoof narrated by none other than Stephen Fry. The video bears an uncanny resemblance to the BBC’s Planet Earth series, except in place of powerful sharks and cute little rodents, there’s Luvdisc and Plusle. The video even includes an original score from George Fenton, who worked on both Planet Earth and Blue Planet.

Despite launching well over a year ago, Pokémon Go is still surprisingly active. Most recently Niantic added dozens of new pokémon from the Hoenn region to the game, the setting of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. The developer also revealed plans to add more legendary creatures over the course of the year, and introduced updates to enhance the game’s augmented reality features. Meanwhile, Niantic is also busy expanding into other games: the studio is rebooting its sci-fi AR game Ingress, while also preparing to launch a new title based on the magical world of Harry Potter.
