Shorts SHORT Review: PokeMonster Hunter

PokeMonster Hunter: Mash Up featuring the Game Grumps
Presented by Polaris

Sarah MoonSmoothie-

Welcome to the shorts SHORT Review, today we'll be talking about the Polaris Mash-up Animation of PokeMon and Monster Hunter. I'm surprised that there aren't more of these gags made within the community of either franchise, though at the same time I'm thankful, since this was an enjoyable short. Over saturation or competing ideas could have ruined the punchline joke, though I do enjoy the imaginative fanart from creative artists of both collectives. To brake it down to the basics, this is a limited animation collaboration between three animators and eight voice actors. The pacing to the story was made clear and was clever even to those that don't know either series. There's not many problems with the short feature and the style choice makes the other parts of the animation stronger, even the opening parallax is wonderfully presented. The background is beautifully flat, though with the minor details of implied floral and rural life spring the effect of a multiple layered landscape. One of the most enjoyable parts of the three minute short was the final fight with Charizard. The music had elements of the PokeMon series and the battling Game Grumps felt perfectly at home with the slaughter of monsters. In short, the acting visually and vocally was well casted and directed, the design and animation choices were well executed within time limitation. This really showed a lot of passion for PokeMon, Monster Hunter, Octopimp - Blacksmith, and Game Grumps, I hope to see more from these creative individuals.

I trust you enjoyed the inspection, thank you for reading.
