This honestly could be a huge step-down for Reynolds after he revived his career with Deadpool.

Pikachu is/are one of the most beloved entities by child and adult alike. I don't think this is a step down at all.

Our first look at what the movie will be and I'm in, looks hilarious.



Granted it's a trailer of the game but my guess is it will be similar in tone. I think they got a hit, it'll go over well with kids and adults.

I have to admit it's pretty neat seeing real world stuff with Pokemon ties. Victini on the badge emblem, wanted posters of Machoke & others.

see the "no cycling" sign, I am kind of hoping there is a scene in the movie where some Biker person comes into the department for some reason and one ofthe police officers just say "Sir, you can't use that item here."

Universal's contract with Legendary Pictures is expiring at the end of the year and they don't plan on extending it. As a result, Warner Bros. is back in business with Legendary and they will be distributing the film. The release date of May 10, 2019 is not expected to change.

So the movie is based on a spinoff game few have played, coming out in 2019 long after the Pokemon Go craze has died down, and before Gen 8 comes out on Switch.

It's also set in a completely different world with no recognizable human characters, and with a talking Pikachu that nobody who followed the franchise will relate to aside from the few who bought a spinoff 3DS game in 2018.

I wonder how this will even do.

I think it'll do good and be better received than a more "traditional" Pokemon movie would've whether animated or live action. The concept is novel and since it's aiming for comedy it'll be accepted by old fans and kids alike.

11 pages, lol

I suppose this movie could do well for a typical kids movie, but seeing CG pokemon also interact with live-action humans will also be rather awkward. Let alone the plot.

Why in the world would they base the movie on some crappy spin off game. Why not just remake the first pokemon movie or just have Pikachu enter a portal that sends him to the real world in New York.

I'm so happy that we live in a world. Where we are getting a live action Pokemon Movie. And a Sonic The Hedgehog Movie.

The Sonic movie I don't see any way that it can actually work out but Detective Pikachu is the perfect idea for a live action Pokemon movie.
