Who knew Pikachu and Charizard were so hard to catch?
Ronnie Shalvis and Calen Chan were the featured parkour athletes. They dressed as Pikachu and Charizard, two Pokemon from the game, and ran, jumped and flipped through the city of Provo. They have been in other video collaborations with other filmmakers, but they especially enjoyed making the "Pokemon Go" video because it wasn’t sponsored, which meant they didn’t feel pressured to do the tricks any certain way.
“Because this is Devin’s own idea it’s just basically having fun and just trying to create an awesome video that captures Devin’s creativity and our own parkour creativity, ” Shalvis said in a behind-the-scenes video.
“Be in our next Devinsupertramp video! Tomorrow!!! Filming in Provo Utah! We are filming from 7:30AM to 8:30AM and I would love for EVERYONE to be in the video! Doesn't matter if you're young or old, taking all ages, ” read the post.
According to the behind-the-scenes video, the entire video was filmed in one day, unlike most of his videos. Because he wanted it to be timely, Graham edited through the night to finish it quickly.
