Rumors about the next Pokemon game continue to swirl but if it does end up being Pokemon Let’s Go: Johto then one trainer has already saved Game Freak and co the trouble of creating an intro for it.

A Gen 2 version of Pokemon Let’s Go will almost certainly be a remake of Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal, similar to how the original Let’s Go game was to Pokemon Yellow. It would feature more to do but the biggest appeal would be the chance to play through the Johto region with modern visuals.

Much like all new Pokemon game releases, there is always divided opinion about a particular title. On the whole though, fans seem excited about the prospect of a Let’s Go sequel, though.

And why wouldn’t they be if the final product featured animations as nostalgic and well-made as this:

The Pokemon Gold and Silver intro animation is as iconic as the game itself. Fans young and old will remember the short pixelated scenes featuring the likes of Shellder, Lapras and the infamous Gen 2 starters.

As this particular animation is based on Pokemon Silver, the scene culminates with Lugia flying across the sea. Typically, Charizard also features which many trainers will point to as early evidence of the Pokemon Company’s apparent obsession with the Kanto fire starter.

It was created by DARN, an artist, animator and filmmaker from Ireland. He took on the challenging task of recreating it but even for someone with the expertise he has, making it was incredibly time consuming.

In the same YouTube video, DARN claimed making it took an astounding amount of time. “Videos like these take a lot of time and effort. This one alone took like 300/400 hours.” You can check out DARN’s portfolio of work on his website via YouTube.

How to find and catch Regigigas in the Crown Tundra

Regigigas makes its return to the Pokemon franchise in Pokemon Sword and Shield’s expansion, The Crown Tundra. Here’s how you can find and capture the Legendary Pokemon. 

Regigigas has made an appearance in every Pokemon generation since its release in gen 4. It returns once again in generation eight in The Crown Tundra expansion in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Getting him isn’t easy though, and you will need a way to get both Regieleki and Regidrago. Here’s how to do it.

Get all five Regi-Pokemon and find Regigigas’ den

Before you can encounter Regigigas, you need to get all of the Regi-Pokemon. You can find all of them regardless of whether you own Sword or Shield, but you can’t get both Regieleki and Regidrago in one game. You have to choose between them, so you will need to trade for the one you don’t get. Here’s where to find all of Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Regieleki and Regidrago.

Once you have all the Regi-Pokemon, you need to put them in your party and find a specific max raid den in the Giant’s Bed. The best way to get there is to take the flying taxi to the Watt Trader at the bottom of the Snowslide Slope and then head south into the Giant’s Bed.

The max raid den will have four rocks surrounding it and it will be on a grassless spot. When you interact with the den with the five Regi-Pokemon in your party, it will light up. Make sure to save here in case something goes wrong and then interact with the den to face Regigigas.

Beating and catching Regigigas

Regigigas will be Dynamaxed but don’t worry, it’s not that strong. It’s a Normal-type Pokemon, so Fighting-type moves are your best bet for taking it down quickly. Zacian, Zamazenta, and Eternatus are also great picks to take it down quickly with their special moves that deal double damage to Dynamax Pokemon.

When you defeat it, you will get a chance to throw a Pokeball at it. Don’t worry, whichever ball you throw will catch it, so don’t waste a Masterball on it. It can also be shiny, so if you want the shiny version, be sure to keep resetting your game until you get it.
