After a Small Gig in Disney’s Free Guy, Ninja Wishes To Collaborate With Pokemon GO in Some Way

Published 07/19/2021, 10:21 AM EDT


Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is one of the biggest names in gaming history, and recently, the iconic figure has shown willingness to be involved with Pokemon Go to some degree in an exclusive interview with ComicBook. Ninja is already associated with quite a few games, most notably Fortnite, and his involvement with Pokemon, if it happens, will do wonders for the game. He has played the game and holds both the game as well as its developers in high regard. Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, is yet to respond.

Why does Ninja even like Pokemon GO?

Well, probably because the game was met with delight upon release and quickly became a success. But other than that, Ninja seems to enjoy the level of anonymity he gets playing the game. It’s highly likely that the community can easily recognize a person with millions of subscribers. But with Pokemon GO, Ninja can just focus on playing the game with people who are unlikely to recognize him and lose their minds.

For instance, Ninja gets to meet people while visiting PokeStops. The people don’t know who he is and might ask him if they could add him, and Ninja really seems to dig to effortless connection. “So, being able to connect like that as well is really dope,” Ninja expressed to ComicBook.

He also likes the social features the game comes with. Players can enjoy the game with their close ones while they’re on the move. And Ninja seems to like that a lot. Ninja also appreciates how the developers have managed to keep the game fresh by keeping adding new content. And it’s easy to concur with his feelings because people get bored easily. When there isn’t a near-constant supply of content, gamers look elsewhere.

It is uncertain whether the collaboration will ever happen. And even if it did happen, how would it happen? Ninja has stated that he doesn’t want to be included in the game as a trainer, so how he could be part of the game, it’s difficult to tell. But, one thing is for certain, and that is if the collab ever materializes, it’ll be huge. And both parties will have a lot to gain from it.
