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.
