For years, Pokemon International and it's former dubbed supervisors 4Kids has not released Pokemon Live! on home video or DVD. But lately, the cast recordings of Pokemon Live! has been found. On Youtube, Chris Mitchell, a former professional stage manger, has posted the Pokemon Live! show online. And seeing how Pokemon has changed over the years with new characters, it would be nice to show Ash and his previous companions, Misty and Brock and some of the songs that were from the two Pokemon soundtracks: 2.B.A. Master and Totally Pokemon to a new generation of children.

 

After the success of the recent Broadway musicals telecasted live on NBC (The Sound of Music, Peter Pan, The Wiz and Hairspray), it would be very interesting to see how Pokemon Live! would go if NBC developed the show and made some changes in the show to make it suitable for today's audience. The show would open a whole new world to Pokemon fans. 

 

Since the Wiz Live! had Stephanie Mills (the original Dorothy of the Wiz) returned as Aunt Em, it would also be interesting to have Veronica Taylor, Eric Stuart and Rachael Lillis (the original voice actors to Ash, Brock, Misty, Jessie and James) in the show as Delica Ketchum, Giovanni and Professor Oak.  

As for the way Pokemon would be portrayed, they can be acrobats and dancers dressed as Pokemon during flying and swimming stunts. Also, puppets would be used for the main/supporting Pokemon characters like Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Meowth similar to the Avenue Q and The Lion King puppets on Broadway.
