We’ve all heard of Pokémon, the legendary media franchise. Besides a large number of video games and the well-known anime, the franchise is now leading to the creation of something new. According to a new report, it’s confirmed that The Pokemon Company filed a trademark application for POKÉTOON. The initial report belongs to Japanese Nintendo, which brought up the POKÉTOON trademark application. The document was filed by Nintendo, Creatures Inc., and Game Freak.
As you might have guessed from the name, POKÉTOON can be described as a combination between both Pokémon and the classic Looney Tunes.
Over 300 products awaited
The trademark application reveals that POKÉTOON is seeking coverage for over 300 products. Video games, household appliances, toys, clothing, processed foods, and more are included here. We can surely bet that more episodes for POKÉTOON are on the way.
A YouTube account called Pokemon Kids TV, recently brought up the short video titled Chase the Beans. It presents Pokemon Scraggy and Mimikyu, as they both look and behave as though they belong to cartoons from the ’40s like Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry. Feel free to feast your eyes upon the video:
We are eagerly waiting to see new episodes of POKÉTOON, as they will arrive in the near future. Hopefully, we’ll get to see interesting parodies for characters like Bugs Bunny, Duffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Tweety, and more.
