This is still a thing? The whole concept sounds horrible, making a movie about a crappy spinoff game that nobody even knows about.

Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson are up for consideration as the voice of Pikachu: https://www.comicbookmovie.com/video...racter-a154595

I'm open to the idea of this and I'd do anything to see The Rock do Pikachu.

Ash: Thank you Pikachu! You're the Best!

Pikachu: What can I say except youre welcome! Pika! Pika!

I think the movie is going for the youngest of demographics with this one and not Pokemon fans, let alone adult Pokemon fans.

It would've been more interesting to see the mess that they made with live action Ash in the Pokemon world but I guess this movie will end up being a decent charming yet nothing like Pokemon movie for kids ~7

This is going to be some hot garbage. A Pikachu talking with a human voice with some random kid solving crimes. Literally the exact opposite of what anyone wants out of pokemon movie.

For some reason, this story idea reminds me of the film "Paddington".

Its basically a live action movie about a talking bear lost in London.

Speak for yourself. I couldn't care less about seeing another animated movie about Ash wanting to be the very best, with a bunch of pokemon that do nothing but say their own species name over and over.

If they wanna try something different, I'm down to at least watch the trailers and consider seeing it in theaters.

Where did you get the idea I was talking about Ash, or any of the anime movies?

All I'm saying is a Pokemon movie based on the pokemon world that at least resembles what people think of it. This looks like it's going to be set in the real world with a kid and a random talking Pikachu solving crimes. It's like nothing to do with the franchise.

Oh I don't know. Are there pokemon movies that don't feature Ash??

Yeah, but to be fair that's how it seems the Detective Pikachu game is too though. Like this one pokemon can speak, or is at least able to be understood by little Tommy Goodman, and they solve mysteries involving other pokemon. It's weird, but so is the whole pokemon thing.

You could say he indirectly auditioned for the role last year when playing with his daughter. Here is the clip.

So, will Pikachu's last name in the movie also be Pikachu?

You know what they should do for this film? An Enchanted type, have Ash some how fall into our world, have it be New York too since it's been traditional with films like those

Instead of what happened with the chipmunk in Enchanted Pikachu can talk

It'd give us actual plot and make sense with this messed up idea. Add Team Rocket too it'd cause even more hilarious moments for the real world. Than you can add in any famous actors to help Ash, give famous cameos blah blah blah .

I can't believe these big shot actors would actually give this film there time. I'm guessing Pikachu's going to talk a lot than? LOL.

They better have a dang good actor for Ash and Team Rocket and whoever will be traveling with him this film if they are doing this.

Can't wait to see how Hollywood does One Piece

It was adapted from a series of children's books.


But yeah, those are all REALLY weird casting choice for Pikachu. A critter that would probably benefit from something more in the Kristin Schaal zone of performance.
