    I hope Sony wins, since Pokemon originated from Japan. It will be great to see a movie to be made from the same country it started from.

    I really don't care who win the auction... the only thing that I really hope is that it will be good and not a live-action like Dragon Ball Evolution... (that was really horribile and nothing like Dragon Ball)

    Someone of you remember this video?

    Yeah, I remember that. It looked interesting, despite the fact the Pokémon designs were really... Strange.

    And, well, according to a Brazilian website, looks like Warner Bros is closer to win this "auction".

    Not sure if Warner Bros. is really winning the auction because everywhere else claims Legendary is in the lead, and possibly confirmed at the moment.
    However, I'd really like to see WB win this one since they distributed the first Pokemon movies 16 years ago. They might do a good job on it XD

    Regardless of which studio claims the live-action movie, I hope they don't attempt to copy the anime like most live-action movies do.
    The anime Pokemon world is awfully unrealistic and innocent because it's targeting young audiences, and I think the live-action movie shouldn't follow this path. If they were going to use any pre-existing stories for the movie, I'd recommend the Pokemon Adventures manga, but I know that's unlikely.

    Personally, I hope they just create something entirely new.
    Maybe this might be Pokemon's first step into creating something targeting teens and adults instead of children.
    Maybe a more serious (and hopefully darker) atmosphere will be introduced through this live-action movie, and we'll get a new line of content for more mature audiences!

    don't they know that making a movie out of anime is a bad idea. =.=

    One of it is "Avatar: The Last Airbender"

    I wonder, if they were planning to use the Pokémon Go hype to promote the movie in some way. I think a lot of studios will be more interested now that GO has so much attention. If the movie succeeds (if they somehow get really good graphic artists, writers and producers that can make a live-action Pokémon movie make sense), it'll promote Pokémon GO again.
