This Pokemon guy is a bad trainer!:

[up][up] YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Er, this is distinctly disturbing for a commercial targeting children, non?

The commercial for Majora's Mask was creepier

Oh yeah, I remember that commercial. That was definitely scary when I was a kid

[up] The ARG they had for it was pretty creepy too.

The Majora's Mask commercial was annoying more than annoying else.
The thing about making witty signature lines is that it first needs to actually be witty.

[up] I didn't find it annoying, but then again I only watched it once on Youtube.

Your army sucks.
Did anyone else find that this commercial scarier as an adult than as a kid? Because I don't remember it being this creepy at all.
Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!

Ah, this takes me back; back to the good old days when life was good and the year 2000 would see us all living in a Blade Runner-esque metropolis and owning a personal jetpack and/or a flying car.

At least the Majora's Mask one was scary for a scary game. The Pokemon one was just pure WTF out of left field.

Just Plain Cute
To put a happy thought in people's heads, I remember two commercials for G/S/C, one basically opened with the starters and Steelix popping up at you and then showing bits of the game, it was the first one I saw for G/S/C and it really made me excited because at that point I was thinking two things "Fuck, I want Typhlosion" and "Steelix looks awesome".

The second one was of some kid leaving some kind of temple grounds with Oak in the background, he walks into a forest and starts hunting Pokemon, I really wanted to be in that world when I saw that for the first time.
Disclaimer: If anyone disagrees with anything I say, I am quite prepared to not only retract it, but also to deny under oath I ever said it.
The fun ends here.
I remember the Crystal commercial that was kinda like Indiana Jones...
Why, if we were all wiener dogs, then all our problems would be solved!

-some archaeologists, along with their two indigenous guides, come upon a magnificent set of ancient ruins in the jungle somewhere. Awed, they approach the door, which is covered with hieroglyphs in the form of the Unown-

Archaeologist #1: What do you think these strange markings mean?

Archaeologist #2: Just help me push.

-they do so, attempting to force their way into the temple with no success. Meanwhile, the two native boys hang back and trade glances-

Native Kid #1: <Should we tell them it says 'Pull'?>

Native Kid #2: ...<Nah.>

I remember the... Pokemon Yellow one? It was either Pokemon Yellow or that Pikachu Pokewalker they made. Anyway, it was about a kid sitting bored in a room and then a huge demolition ball destroys one of the walls revealing the Pokemon world behind it. Then Pikachu joins the kid, who is now dressed as Ash, and they go on adventure. I remember it helped me recover of the trauma of the bus driver and Pokemon Pinball ones
God I remember those commercials, they were WEIRD. I agree with the first comment though, our world has horrid double standards.

Now I need to go EV train my perfect Archeops, excuse me gentlemen and gentlewomen.
You will never love a women as much as George Lucas hates his fans.

Maybe it's the driver's elaborate method of creating a Philosopher's Stone. Remember! They don't need to look like stones!

A philosopher's stone made out of Pokemon and Bus? That's weird.

Edward Elric: So that's why they called it the devil's research. The Philosopher's Stone...is made from pokemon and buses!!!

[up][up] The bus was the shell for the Game Boy. The crusher was the transmutation circle that extracted the souls and transmuted the bus. You just couldn't see the markings.
You knew I'd change it.
[up] That's just...epic. You deserve a [awesome]
