they use 700 drones to recreate your favorite Pokémon in the sky and it’s beautiful

Pokémon is a licence which is absolutely everywhere. Born of video gamesit was then exported to markets collectible card gamesto arcade gamesbut also in the mode, in the ecological struggles, etc. They are also a fertile ground to the creativity, notably for the most grandiose shows.

Goodbye fireworks, hello drone shows!

In 2016 came out Pokémon Go. This game revolutionized part of the license and the world of video games on its own, by offering for the first time to leave your home, walk and catch Pokémon. The concept which is the very essence of the first games of the license, was finally possible on a larger scale, other than with its gameboy without backlighting under the elbow. We could see the Pokémon on the street in 3D just with our phone. But since 2020, a new trend has been democratized to go ever further: drone shows. Summer is the period when the fireworks are linked in Japan. But more and more, these drone shows are replacing them and attracting many spectators.

The most spectacular of them concerned Pokémon of course, with more than 700 drones used during the Pokémon Go Special Drone Show, the 2022 Otaru Prefectural Festival, which lasted all summer. A grandiose show of just under ten minutes, during which we were able to see various Pokémon appear “in 3D” by drones. First, the various balls of the game (Pokéball, Superball, Hyperball and Masterball), a Pikachu on a planisphere, then a huge Charizard, followed by an Alola Noadkoko, a breathtaking Ectoplasma, a Wailord swimming and splashing virtually the crowd, then a terrifying Rayquaza before concluding with a message written in Japanese and the logo Pokémon Go. Even if videos of spectators make it possible to capture all the charm and the madness that this show was at ground level, the official video of the show remains the reference to best observe the beauty of the design and the finesse of the choreography.

Pokémon : not the first show?

These drone shows are reminiscent of the early days of video games, when the number of pixels and polygons your console could display was a benchmark. Here, inevitably, the greater the number of drones, the more the show will be precise in its design. Even if they are extremely numerous at the moment in Japan, other countries seem to enjoy these shows. Always to stay on topic Pokémon, in Dallas, the Youtuber Leonhart54 had offered itself the services of the company Sky Elements Drone Shows to illuminate the sky with a virtual opening of Pokémon cards, as well as a fight between a Pikachu and a Charizard. Even though the show features “only” 250 drones, it’s still interesting. Now we can’t wait to see the Pokérap of all 901 existing Pokémon species, in 3D, in the sky.

Other companies have realized that drone shows may have been the future of fireworks. Less ephemeral, not necessarily less polluting and not especially more expensive. Moreover, the 2022 edition of Burning Manthis music festival in the Black Rock desert of Nevada also ended with a drone concert, offering a huge face in the sky. Currently, the record for the most drones used in a show is 3,051 in Shanghai.. These described a total planisphere and a satellite orbiting the planet. And for those wondering : yes it is possible to do shows on all themes, we let you enjoy that of the Paramount channelwhich took place in Australia, in Sydney:
