Pokemon surprised fans everywhere when they launched a Looney Tunes inspired short, and fans are obsessed with the debut of Poketoons. These shorts featured Scraggy and Mimikyu going on some zany adventures with an art style reminiscent of those classic cartoons. It was a strange experiment following in line with much of the experimentation from the rest of the franchise as the anime has seen several major shifts lately not only with the main series, but with shorter web series like this and Pokemon: Twilight Wings.
These shorts were an adorable watch for sure, and it was such a small surprise that fans are wondering if there are any more planned. Whether or not this was the first in a longer line of web shorts or a one time deal, fans are impressed all the same.
Read on to see what fans are saying about the debut of Poketoons below, and let us know how you felt! Let us know your thoughts in the comments, or you can even reach out to me directly about all things animated and other cool stuff @Valdezology on Twitter!

Just Look at that Style!
The old-timey Poketoons skit is really cool. I especially like how they nailed the aesthetic right down to the brush stroke smear style. Something Don Williams was famous for on Looney Tunes, so I'm told pic.twitter.com/ZYNRKI7Pwp— Geth (@PurpleGeth) June 5, 2020
Who Knows Why? But Who Cares!
This is a really cool video going back to the golden western animation style but with Pokémon don’t know why they did this but I don’t care it’s really good https://t.co/ZyjmA85gu3— Billy The Turtle (new) (@BillyTheTurtle6) June 9, 2020
