Wow. The way they timed things to show up on each screen was really cool. Normally right there in Shibuya, it's hard to pay attention to any one thing. There's multiple advertisements going on at once. It was probably super expensive for them to get all 4 of the major giant screens, but I think it was worth it. That's definitely going to catch attention.

Rayquaza flying across the screens was... intimidating, to say the least. I definitely would've loved to see this in person.

That was quite a awe-inspiring ad that was played there.
The folks watching it must have been excited to see how the characters have changed aesthetically from a decade earlier.
Plus, seeing Rayquaza flying through the ozone and unleasing his Hyper Beam was truly commending beyond words.

I must say, the use of 4 screens were very clever. Like in one screen there's Team Magma, and in the other is Team Aqua, played simultaneously. And the scene of Rayquaza flying through the screen was very good. Kudos for the marketing team.

That was awesome!! I love the comparisons they did with the originals.

It's crazy to think that someone who played the original games when they were around 20 back then could technically now be buying the remakes for their kids! Blows my mind already almost 13 years went by, I remember playing ruby and bringing it to school to battle/trade with friends using the link cables as if it was only yesterday, good times
