Make Pokemon Live! NBC's next televised musical event

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.

Petition to Nintendo

Release Pokemon Emerald and FireRed/LeafGreen on 3DS eShop

With the release of the generation 2 Pokemon games on Nintendo 3DS eShop, the system only has one generation of Pokemon games left unplayable - generation 3. The Game Boy Advance games Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen are not currently accessible on modern consoles, and the eShop can remedy this. As Ruby and Sapphire already have remakes, they can be forgone in favor of Pokemon Emerald, which has features not present in R/S or their remakes, such as the Battle Frontier. You may ask, if Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow are on eShop already, and Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire exist, why bring these games to the eShop? Well, why are Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal on 3DS eShop with HeartGold and SoulSilver out? Simple: Nostalgia! And for some, the simple reason is that they never got to experience these games growing up, and would like to enjoy the them now without seeking out used systems and games. Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen also bring new experiences not available elsewhere, such as Hoenn’s Battle Frontier, and the Sevii Islands, only featured in FrLg.  “Aren’t there technical limitations?”  No, not really. The 3DS is made to play DS games, which in turn, allows it to play GBA games, though it is simulated more than actually emulated, so features like save states, sleep mode, and etc. are a no-go if this becomes a reality. Think the GBA Ambassador games.  This petition is for Nintendo and Game Freak to release Pokemon Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen on the 3DS eShop, despite their stance on not releasing GBA games on the 3DS.  With these releases, the 3DS will be THE system to go to for all core Pokemon games before the move to Nintendo Switch.  Also, in light of Pokemon Crystal for 3DS offering the Celebi event overseas for the first time, items such as the Old Sea Map, and the Aurora, Eon, and Mystic Tickets would be a request to be added into the digital versions of the game, thereby making Mew a non-event Pokemon at last! Compatibility with Pokemon Tranporter and Bank are also a request! ^^ Help us traverse the good ol GBA games and explore the Sevii Islands all over again!

Petition to Niantic, Google Inc., Apple

Niantic, Stop discriminating against the disabled!

Pokémon Go is one of the most popular games on iOS and Android. People of all ages love the game, whether to just collect and finish their Pokédex, battle and take over gyms, raid, or meet new people.  Unfortunately, several requests to include the disabled have gone unanswered. Suggestions for gyms to be added to a disabled persons location, joystick accounts approved by Niantic, etc. have completely been ignored.  While some who are disabled can play as intended (example: those in wheelchairs who are generally healthy but are unable to walk), many of us can’t even get out of bed. Many are in hospitals full time or hooked up to machines for chemo or oxygen. Why should we not be able to play? This isn’t a sport, this is a GAME on our PHONES.  Disabled players are routinely left out of everyday activities, missing family events and fun with their friends. Being sick can be very lonely at times so many sick and/or disabled resort to watching tv/videos/Netflix & playing games on their devices all day. We also tend to spend more $ because we play more since we have so much free time. But that doesn’t matter to Niantic, we aren’t able to walk so we should go away? That’s just not right!  Id be happy with a gym at my house or with a Niantic provided joystick account to walk around, I’m not asking to jump all over the world or to be able to snipe Pokémon. I’m just asking to be treated like everyone else! To be able to join in on one of the most popular games ever, to play what my stepson and nephew are playing so that one day we can trade and battle each other! I don’t think I’m asking for a lot. I just want the playing field to be equal...and I need a joystick or gym for that to happen.  I’d LOVE to be able to walk around and “grind” as legit players say, it’s a DREAM of mine to wake up and go about my day without having to worry about my health issues. But unfortunately, that’s not how my life is.  Thousands (if not more) of disabled people feel the exact same way as I do. We are tired of being lumped in with people who “ruin” the game with 5+ accounts taking over every gym and jumping all over the world. We just want the ability to play like everyone else. Please, Niantic, let us play, too!
