A few days ago I saw this weird Pokemon commercial with Ash dancing the Kan-Kan on a table holding a PokeBall and hitting himself. Then there was a sign in Chinese that appeared out of nowhere then suddenly blacked out.
It was a freaky Chinese commercial. What's the weirdest Pokemon commercial you've ever seen on TV or Online?

The advertisement for the premiere of Advanced Battle with a Person with a Bulbasaur head talking about eggs.<.<

There's another weird video I saw with two idiots lipsynching the Pokemon theme song and hitting a stuffed Pikachu doll with a baseball bat. One of them licked the camera. It was freaky and stupid.

The stupidest Pokemon commercial I've ever seen is the one where there's a girl with a Mudkip head tagging an invisible person repeatedly saying ''Your It!''. It was a promotion for Advanced Battle back in September.

The best commercial I've seen aired back in...1999? 2000? Waaaaay before a lot of you got into the show, anyway.

The commercial aired back when Kids' WB! could actually make good commercials. In it, Robin (from "The New Batman Adventures") keeps bugging Batman to sing him a bedtime song. Batman hesitates for a bit, so Robin keeps bugging him until he finally gives in...and sings the Jigglypuff song! I think Kids' WB! actually got Kevin Conrad (Batman's VA) to do the commercial, and the result was hilarious.

I remember that the old school Bulbagarden site used to have the commercial up for download, but that was before NOA sent a cease and desist order causing the site to take all its video clips down.

Ah yes, i remember that. I do believe it was Batman's VA singing the Jigglypuff song, as the WB always had the real voices play the characters in the commercials.

KidsWB used to cross-over all their shows a lot during the commercials, it was great.

The weirdest Pokemon Commercial?

In the Uk, for sky, the advert went along the lines of(With Random images from AG)
Narrator:
Grass Beats Water.
Water Beats Electric.
Electric Beats Rock.
Rock Beats Ground.
Ash:
Go Pikachu!
Narrator:
Watch the New Pokemon series airing on Sky one.

I was left going: WTF?!11?!

I thought it was funny, yeah. But why did they have to beat up that Pikachu doll? And what was with the Piglett Toy(Winnie the Pooh)? PIGLETT(not DIGLETT) isn't even Pokemon. And don't those two have a little TOO much time doing that weird theme song spoof?
Ah, whatever.
It IS funny. In a freaky way.

The ones in the pok&#232;mon videos where there are all
these pokemon toys. Kids are playing with them and there are these adults
screaming. And one I think was when the pok&#232;mon go to camp or something.
I know there was a bus in it...>.>
I just found those weird okay. DEAL WITH IT.

I saw one a few years ago on Fox Kids in Montreal. It was actually for a Jackie Chan Adventures story arc, where they had a bunch of different commercials interviewing characters from different shows to choose who would be the newest member of Jackie's Team. Ash auditioned, and Jackie asked him to show them what he could do. So Ash threw a pokeball at Jackie and caught him. And then Ash did his victory pose and shouted, "I caught Jackie Chan!" and Jade and the old man looked really freaked out. It was the funniest thing ever.

Well I can't remember any of the commercials back before most got into the show ( I got into the show back in 1999) but I remember a commercial that showed a bunch of symptons and ended up saying "watchnig Pokemon five days a week will help cure these symptons". The funniest part was when it said "Side effects may include fire breath..." I thought it was quite funny and wierd.

I remember one for Ruby and Sapphire. People had their pictures taken in a photo booth with a Pokemon from R/S that looked just like them. I remember this old lady who looked like a Shroomish and this rocker guy who looked just like a Zigzagoon. It was cool and weird and I loved it.

I also remember one where the kids were saying the motto but it was for the trading cards instead. I thought that one was sorta cool.

Can you compare it to the FR/LG commercial?

Kamex

I loved those crossover commercials, but I didn't even notice them disappear...

Anyway, one comes to mind. It was where the Joker sang "Pat-a-Cake" with different lyrics. It started off something like, "Eradicate Raticate!"

And there was this one holiday Saturday where they took a bunch of Christmas songs and replaced the lyrics with their own. Like Misty singing, "Psy-aiaiaiaiai-aiaiaiaiai-aiaiaiaiai-duck! In your pokeball I wish you were stuck!"

KidsWB! is losing their touch, eh?

The Pokemon Colosseum one. "Gotta save 'em all!" was kinda--- scratch that, very corny, but it was funny.

OMG...I've seen that too...;_; poor Pikachu.
Anyway, the weirdest one I've seen was Ash saying something and then he was sucked into a Pokeball, and then for the rest of the commercial he sounded like he was constipated. =/

I saw the one with the Photos down here it was pretty good.

The one for Pokemon Emerald was... unorthadox.
Some one with clothes like Brendan is walking through the streets...

Narrator:
"You've mastered the pokemon moves...

Hypnosis *People around falls asleep* ...

Low kick *he trips someone over* Now there is a bigger challenge! *Camera cuts to a beach with the battle frontier with green light over it* find out when you buy it..."

...
I was like: I have GOT to get this game! wierd ad though...

The "Can't stop thinking about Pokemon?" ads promoting Advanced Battle, that was the source I used when I broke the news on Serebii, but the "Ash can't fit inside a Pokeball" one and the ones used to promote the full hours (that they brought back this week) are also funny!

OMG.

The Colosseum one was so funny. I remember the people running down the streets with little Pokemon on their flags... like Entei. XD
"Who will save the Pokemon? Gotta save em, gotta save em all! You can save the Pokemon. Gotta save em'.. Gotta save em' all!"

Thats all I remember for the song.

There was this one commerical, waaaaay way back when Pokemon first started, and it was either advertising for Pokemon yellow, or the TCG. There was this kid outside, and he had dressed his blood hound in a Pikachu costume, and tried to get it to attack. That one made me laugh so hard. XD

Oh, yeah, that was a camera you could send for by mail with UPCs from Cap'n Crunch; that was cute.

I also remember the ad for Pokemon Yellow, which had this kid with Pikachu and they were catching Pokemon in unusual ways (such as Hitmonlee in a pit trap) and the kid was checking off a list of Pokemon... LOL

Most of the commericals I can remember have already been said, but one I know hasn't was that Red/Green(Blue) commerical when the games first came out.

If I remember correctly, there was this heavy-set bus driver waiting for all these different pokemon to load onto his bus. Once it was fully loaded, he scrambled out and pulled handle or something, and the bus shrunk down to a gameboy. After that we saw all the little monsters poking their heads out of the gameboy screen in an attempt to get out, as well as the announcer saying "Where can you catch all 150 Pokemon? On your game boy!" Or something to that effect.

The Colosseum one, where two kids walked into the middle of a Groudon vs kyogre match. There's been good ones, such as FR/LG being two kids playing FR/LG with wireless adapters.
