The author of today’s video, DagaYemar, has already impressed me countless times with his ability to graft ponies into (primarily Disney) songs while maintaining impeccable characterization and lip-syncing.
And then there was this. This video takes the ponification game and brings it to a whole new level. Perhaps I’m waxing hyperbolic here, but this is probably the most entertaining PMV I’ve watched in a good three months at least, and here’s why:
The name of every single Pokemon from the original games is included in this rap, and the author managed to find a character, creature, item, or moment to represent every single one of them. That’s right. Each and every one of the original 151 Pokemon has been ponified in some form or fashion here, and the match-ups are absolutely brilliant. They fly at you so fast and thick that you often don’t even have time to register the brilliance of, say, casting Snips and Snails (stuck together with gum) as Slowbro. This PMV begs repeat watches just to try to figure out and appreciate all of the match-ups. I’m blown away by the amount of time and thought that must have gone into combing every season and episode of the show to find the perfect one-second clip to go with each Pokemon.
The interplay between Pinkie Pie and Iron Will as the rappers is also really well done. The scenes chosen for their parts fit perfectly and were usually hilarious. I really appreciate all of DagaYemar’s work, but this might just be the pinnacle of his portfolio. Check it out below!
