Amazing Pokemon Gold animation made using LEGO bricks

An artist shows off an amazing Pokemon Gold player character animation using only LEGO bricks to achieve the effect.

In 1999, Game Freak and Nintendo released a direct sequel to their first Pokemon Games. These games were known as Pokémon Gold and Silver. The games introduced 100 new Pokemon to the series canon as well as a ton of new characters, Gyms, and antagonists. Pokémon Gold and Silver also saw players take control of a new protagonist who embarked on his own journey to becoming a master.

Although there were some differences between pokemon gold and the other versions, the games all followed the same basic structure. Originally known as Gold before his name was canonically changed to Ethan, the player character traveled the Johto region collecting badges, battling Team Rocket, and taking on his rival, Silver, before facing the Elite Four. Gold/Ethan’s journey then took him to the Kanto region where he fought Red and Blues the original Gym leaders, faced off against Blue, then challenged the original protagonist Red to an epic mountaintop showdown.

It shows Gold/Ethan walking, moving, and facing different directions. The piece of LEGO animation is part of a larger user-made video that shows the character moving from one LEGO pad to another. The comments on the YouTube video and the Reddit post were very positive, and many were impressed with the results of the animation.

Whereas Pokémon Gold and Silver will probably live forever in the shadow of pokemon red and blue, his fanbase remained strong. Arguments have been made to date that Pokémon Gold and Silver deserve remakes for the Nintendo Switch similar to Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s go Eevee. Although Nintendo doesn’t seem to be in a rush to make such a game, the fan base is keeping it alive in its own way.
