I don't understand your problem. Do you need advice on what to tell him?

Considering section where he put this, I think he wants a poke-plugin cool
Sorry Cirian, but from what I know, it's pointless to make a plugins for a film character... Maybe if you want a pokemon that won't show on a screen much, buit what kind of pokemon film would be that?
So again, depending on what ou want, maybe you should post it under Filmmakers Forum (for example: 'how to create pokemon using (...)?').

You will need to use a 3D program to make the characters.
Do you intend to write a script etc. for the movie as it will be quite difficult to do the characters in CG and I wouldnt suggest going to all that trouble for just a quick, small film.

But I do suggest that you try 3D, but start with something simple.
Blender (www.blender3d.org) is a good place to start, if you want.

Youve made a few plugin requests which are just not practical at all. A terrorist, darth sidius, pokemon. AlamDV is not 3d software. These things are 3d things, not a plugin thing.

Here's an idea: Learn to draw well, and animate the drawings of the into the movie. That way, it will look like the tv show, and you can move it however you want because you made it.

I have an idea, tell me what you guys think about it:
Pokemons (and all cartoon characters) are 2D. So you can make a 2D plugins. Here's an example: in 2D fighting games you have sprites, you can see some of those on the internet as gif's. Taking several sprites you can make your character to do many things, for example fisrt you take a sprite of guy standing, than walking, than shooting etc. Using this method you can achieve nice effect, depending on how much sprites you have.
What do ya think?

PIKA! PIKA! PIKA!

If you use a pokimon plugin, it will look very fake. If you use a person dressed up like a pokimon jumping around and stuff, it'll look very funny!
