|POKE ABRIDGED SHOTS|
20 April 2009
6 and a Christmas Special
Pokemon Advanced Abridged, nicknamed "Poke Abridged Shots", was originally created by FlyingBandicoot and Dco257 on 20th April 2009, and was first supposed to be a one-shot parody of the show. FlyingBandicoot's original series was Digimon Frontier Abridged, and Dco257's original series was DN Angel Abridged. Since the one-shot parody gained positive feedback, they both decided to continue it, and have thus far got 5 more episodes and a Christmas special released, as of December 25, 2009.
To write the script, both Dco257 and FlyingBandicoot check the backgrounds of the episodes and decide which episodes to watch and parody, then while watching, they both take notes, and its up to FlyingBandicoot to give the script body and is where most of the pop culture references come from. CardboardLawyer has had some input with the script in later episodes.
Dco257 - Ash, James
FlyingBandicoot - Max, May, Jesse
CardboardLawyer - Meowth, Wobufaet
KoivoCartoonik - Brock
Feai3n - Pikachu
Editing is done by FlyingBandicoot, who uses Sony vegas Pro 8.0 to edit the video, and WavePad to edit the audio. Some PhotoShop work has been done by CardboardLawyer.
The song used for the openings is "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid" by The Offspring. Episode 1, 2, 4, and 5 have all had different variations of the intro, with the 3rd episode using the same opening as the 2nd episode.
