Is Pokémon Coming to Fortnite and When? Here’s What We Know!

Is Pokémon Coming to Fortnite and When? Here's What We Know!

Fortnite, one of the hottest games in the world, is known for its numerous collaborations with other franchises through implementing character-based skins that Fortnite players can use while playing the game. Most of these were from Western movie and/or comic book franchises, but anime series have also been included, e.g., there are several Dragon Ball skins in Fortnite. Recently, a trailer was released online suggesting that the multi-billion Pokémon franchise might also appear in Fortnite. Is it true? Keep reading to find out!

Despite the trailer, a collaboration between Fortnite and Pokémon is not going to happen, at least not now. The trailer that appeared online is actually a fan rendering and not an official trailer, although it has to be admitted that it is a fairly good one. Sadly, it has later been confirmed that a collaboration is not on the way and that we’ll have to wait to – potentially – see Ash and Pikachu in Fortnite.

In the rest of this article, we are going to give you more details on the Fortnite x Pokémon trailer that appeared online. You’re going to find out the details about the trailer and what the trailer reveals about a possible collaboration between these two major franchises. This is going to be your ultimate guide on the situation that has arisen between Pokémon and Fortnite.

Is the Fortnite x Pokémon trailer real?

Before we start, let us first check this out:

We suppose that you can now guess why the Internet exploded after this. Fortnite is one of the biggest games in the MMORPG era and one of the most popular and lucrative titles in the history of gaming. On the other hand, the Pokémon franchise has an immeasurably larger tradition than Fortnite and is by far the more popular franchise. But, if you look at the history of gaming, both Fortnite and various Pokémon games will pop up among history’s most popular titles ever.

We assume that a demand for a crossover between Fortnite and Pokémon has been active for a while now, and it would be a truly massive thing, because it would bring about the collaboration between two of the biggest franchises in the history of gaming. And now we have a trailer. Or do we?

We cannot deny that the trailer we’ve seen above is actually great. It looks authentic, it looks realistic and it combines the spirits of both Fortnite and Pokémon in one awesome video. It is short, but seeing Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, and Charizard in action in the world of Fortnite was amazing and that is why it is such a bummer that the trailer is not an official one. Yes, we have to disappoint you by stating that the above-linked Fortnite x Pokémon trailer is actually a fan rendering and not an official trailer released by either of the two companies.

The trailer is actually the work of animator Feeralsy and has appeared on his FeraalsVFX YouTube channel, after which is started spreading around other social media, including Twitter and TikTok. Unfortunately, it is just a brilliant animation and not an official trailer. But, could a collaboration between Fortnite and Pokémon still be on the way?

Are Pokémon coming to Fortnite?

So, we now know that the trailer is not real, does it mean that there is no collaboration either? We mean, the trailer could be fan-made, but that doesn’t have to mean that there is no planned collaboration, right? Sadly, in this case, it means exactly that. Neither Epic Games nor The Pokémon Company have confirmed a collaboration and there are no long- or short-term plans for a Fortnite and Pokémon collaboration as of the time of writing.

Would it make sense? From a commercial standpoint, it probably would, but we don’t know how well the concept of Pokémon would function in Fortnite, which is why both sides are probably a bit scared of such a crossover. But, it might be that there is simply no interest in such a collaboration, which is also a valid reason. But, if you like Fortnite and its crossovers, despite not being able to play as Ash and the gang, you can enjoy these characters and collaborations right now:
