Was looking around old Pokemon promos and saw many shots like this

How exactly is this wide angle dollhouse look achieved? I was going to say just a wide angle lens but everything looks so close together like a long zoom lens. Are they putting a fisheye at the end of a telephoto or something?

 

As always, thanks for reading.

Super wide lens, tiny set. Everything looks close together because it actually is close together.

What mm would you estimate if possible?

Really wide, like around a 10mm or 12mm (if shooting in regular / Super-35).  Maybe a 16mm.

If it was shot on 16mm then it was probably the Optex 4mm or 6mm, super close up. That's also how you get that type of distortion.
