Ever wondered how the millions of common Pokémon covering the planet actually got there?

Thanks to YouTuber Nixolas, we now know — you just throw them out of an airplane. Using a combination of real-life footage, 3D software and crowd creation through Goalem, he was able to render the scene.

As it turns out, he’s not only using Pokémon to showcase his 3D skills. In this medieval scene we see a battle just like it would have happened back in that day and age — with a lot of rubbery objects flying around.
