The New York Yankees are one of the most winningest sports teams in history, now one of its starting pitchers is showing off some heat in the latest commercial for Pokémon Sun and Moon. Masahiro Tanaka has been a force to be reckoned with since his high school days in Japan and continues to forcefully dominate opposing teams as a member of the Bronx Bombers.
During the off season, Tanaka has decided to catch’em all by starring in Japan’s latest commercial for the upcoming Pokémon games. In the video, he is hurling a Poké Ball, like the pro he is, before it cuts to show in-game footage. There are other trainers and characters throwing their Poké Balls as well as a couple of clips showing some battling action.
Pokémon Sun and Moon will arrive later this week to hopefully strike out any competition. Catch the latest trailer for the game as well to see what’s in store for you.
