Pokémon GO gets its own 'Planet Earth documentary'

The Official Pokémon YouTube Channel released a new video titled "Amazing Creatures Have Been Discovered across the Planet!" It is a beautiful "documentary" about Pokémon GO and is narrated by none other than Stephen Fry (English actor, comedian, radio presenter).

The video resembles BBC's famous Planet Earth series narrated by David Attenborough, but instead of sea creatures and wildlife, we have Pokémon. It's a brilliant video and the best thing you'll watch today.

The video, of course, does not resemble in-game footage, but attempts to show that Trainers can discover Pokémon in places across the world - land, see, sky and even at hard to reach places like what I assume is the North Pole. The video also includes some work by BBC's Planet Earth and Blue Planet composer, George Fenton.

"Amazing Creatures Have Been Discovered across the Planet!" showcases some of the game's most famous Pokémon, as well as the latest added. How many of the creatures from the video have you been able to catch?

In other Pokémon GO news, Niantic announced via Twitter that Trainers who have earned Battle Girl, Jogger, or Fisherman medals are now eligible to purchase new avatar items for those categories.
