Video: Fan Spends 300+ Hours On Lovely Pokémon Silver Opening Animation


Nostalgia’s a beautiful thing, but trying to beautifully recreate it with a modern coat of paint is a painstaking endeavour, it turns out.

Darren Rafferty, an animation student from Ireland, has been hard at work recreating the opening to Pokémon Silver, a game from Pokémon’s second generation of titles which launched for the Game Boy Color back in 1999. The opening scenes have been completely reanimated, starring a number of different Pokémon across a variety of scenes.

In total, the project took a whopping 300-400 hours. “I wanted this to feel like a living, breathing world, as opposed to just an animation,” Rafferty says. “And I think it turned out alright, it’s still far from perfect though. Personally I really like the underwater bit where you can see the surface of the water from underneath, thought that looked well.”

Check it out:


Pretty, huh? For the sake of comparison, here’s the original:


Why Charizard gets to take centre stage in an animation for a new generation of Pokémon is beyond us, but there we are.

If we ever do get a Pokémon Let’s Go Johto game on Switch, we sure hope it gets treated to a nicely redone opening like this. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
