Pokémon Detective Pikachu

12th November 2018

I did not expect this film at all. You get to see Pokémon actually in the real world!

It’s a bit weird hearing Pikachu talk, and maybe even weirder that it’s Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) as the voice actor.

There were certainly some cool things that I noticed (spoilers!):

  • Pikachu looks like a teddy.
  • Psyduck has fur.
  • There’s an army of Bulbasaur!
  • Mr. Mime is an actual mime.
  • It’s based in “Ryme City”.
  • The main character (Harry Goodman) received a train ticket demo Leaventown to Ryme City on his 21st birthday. Pokémon trainers usually start their journey when they’re 10.
  • Jigglypuff isn’t very effective at maintaining an awake audience at Karaoke.

Also, there is actually already a Detective Pikachu game for the Nintendo 3DS.
