Exciting news I came across recently when I found out that a locally made Pokemon live action fan film was in the works and even better, a teaser trailer has been posted for it! The film is called The Resurgence: A Pokèmon Fan Film and is being put together by Revolving Door Productions courtesy of Melbourne based actor, Robin Brown.
Here’s some press information about it:
Pokèmon “Live Action” Fan Film – The Resurgence Two Actors turned filmmakers create a live action fan film about Pokèmon. ‘The Resurgence’ is set in Kanto 20 years in the future in a world fuelled by greed and corruption, run by Giovanni and Rocket Industries.
Robin Brown founder of Revolving Door Productions, “ I always wanted to create a production company where I could make my own content, this one particular idea had been in the works for over a year and I knew I had to make it.”
Ash Ketchum, now in hiding has fallen on hard times and has turned to drugs after seeing his mother burnt to death and Pallet destroyed at the hands of Rocket Industries in a war against the Rebellion five years prior.
Reece Manning adds “Rob and I were talking at a friend’s Birthday, he told me his idea and I was like “shit man you need this to happen so lets get it done… we got it done.”

And here’s some more info on this exciting development:
The Resurgence: A Pokèmon Fan Film – Set 20 years after Ash began his Pokèmon journey, in a world torn apart by greed. Rocket Industries now control most of the Kanto region through their brutal regime, stopping at nothing to keep the people under their thumb. As Rocket’s power grew so did their greed, destroying habitats to fuel their growth, while hunting Pokèmon for their own selfish needs. With Ash and his two best friends Misty and Brock at the helm of a rebellion, they fought Giovanni and Rocket Industries with hope of a brighter future. They were however no match for the power Rocket had amassed over the years. The rebellion fell after a long bloody battle that saw many human and Pokèmon casualties. It has been five years since the end of the war and not a single Pokèmon has been seen since. Ash, after losing everything, has given up hope and remains in hiding, still hunted by Giovanni and Rocket Industries, with Nurse Joy being his only link to the outside world. However, the scattered remains of the rebellion have not given up hope as they bide their time for the opportune moment. Strange transmissions have been received from Ash’s home town of Pallet, causing a stir that may just swing the balance of power away from Giovanni and Rocket Industries.
I’ll keep you posted on this project and can’t wait for the next trailer!
