I've had this idea for a TV-show for a while that I think could really take off. It's kind of like WWE but even more hardcore.. let me explain.
So first, you need to find 150 really young kids, right? I swear it's not what it sounds like guys. The point is to start training these kids from an early age. Train them to be Pokemon. Every kid has their own "Poker-trainer", and they're trained to resemble their Poke-alter-egos, by wearing costumes, and making the noises (so Pikachu-kid can only say "pika pikaa" and shit like that). And once trained, the kids fight each other. So far, sounds like normal Smackdown shit right? WRONG! There's something extra!
The kids all have special powers! Pikachu, for example, would be given a tazer, and Charmander would have a small flame-thrower, you get the picture. This, of course, presents some problems as well. Some Pokemons like Mewtwo would obviously be overpowered, and what about flying Pokemons? And you'd have to abduct a cripple for a Magikarp, and who would want to train him? There are some problems to be solved for sure, but I think the concept itself is solid and would attract a large viewerbase.
What do you guys think? Which Pokemon would you like to be, or to train? Share your thoughts!
