    I don't live in any of the areas it has listed. Although it says more locations will be added. Cross my fingers.

    I don't really see the point. Pokemon has some nice tunes, but nothing really great, and certainly not deserving of the full orchestral treatment. Plus, the ticket prices are pretty steep ($80 which, in Euros, comes out to "Too fucking much").

    I imagine the concert will be less This Is It and more "This is it?"

    Sounds like a much better value, then.

    Of all the titles that come to mind when I think of games that deserve orchestral adaptations...

    ... Pokemon?

    In my defense I don't give a shit about the concert, I can't even go, I would rather waste my money on something else.

    I don't seem to remember any stand out music in the Pokemon franchise.
    Certainly none that warrant that price, anyway.

    Pokemon has a few catchy little tunes that eventually make me mute my device because i'm so tired of hearing it.

    and for those ticket prices, hahahaha yeah no.

    to say truth, Pokemon has some awesome tunes that will work pretty well on an orchestra(and of course arranged to have a definite end). I went to Distant Worlds and was marvelous, I don't get all the hate, but found the price too high(payed $19800 CLP for DW, somewhat around $36 USD).
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
