I don’t want to influence how you might feel about this. So I’ll just saw, when I heard about a Detective Pikachu – Pokemon movie, I had an idea in my head how it might look or sound… none of that was accurate. So take a look at this, it’s a live action Pokemon movie, called Detective Pikachu.
POKÉMON Detective Pikachu - Official Trailer #1
- Ryan Reynolds as the voice of Pikachu, REALLY threw me for a loop when I first watched this, but after a couple more viewings, I don’t hate it, in fact I actually kinda like it, it feels like the Ted version of Pokemon.
- The animation style for the Pokemon, SO BIZARRE. How else would you do a realistic style animation of make believe battle animals? I have no idea, but that style I was not expecting
- It’s a story very few Pokemon fans are aware of, which I think is great! Because we all more or less know the characters, it’s just a side story to the ones we’re all used to.
All in, I think this could be either a surprisingly brilliant movie… or straight trash. I really hope it’s the first one.
