Oh yeah, Detective Pikachu actually ended up being pretty good. I was genuinely surprised by this.

I found it funnier than the trailer made it out to be, the Mr. Mime scene in particular. They either switched things up in post or reorganized the clips here and there in the trailer so what you thought was said in one scene was actually said in another and it was better played out in the actual movie.

I'm glad you guys liked it.

Me? I just couldn't get past my brain screaming "Dead animal!" at me to take in anything (Besides the Avatar-level of cliche storm.)

i honestly think my biggest gripe with it is just that it was **clearly** pandering to millennials while getting away with having the writing of your average mediocre kids movie

like if i go see some dumb mediocre kids movie and it has bad writing im not gonna write home about it?? but this **** made BANK from nostalgic adults which is why i feel completely validated complaining about it

edit: omg agreed the mr. mime scene was WAY better in the movie than the trailers

I think it was a good idea that they made some original characters and not go haywire with fan-service. They created a storyline with the main kid and went with it and it was good. Not amazing, of course. But I think this was the best we've had in terms of video game movies. They didn't try to hash in many other characters from the games or try to make another MCU out of it. I thought the Ditto girl was going to be Jessie from Team Rocket but no. Like I said, better they play around first with original characters rather than do something stupid with already established characters and mess something up.

We've got Sonic & Mario films still coming, the advertising for this movie very heavily emphasized the SSB Poke-roster, & it used "Happy Together". I think something's about to go wrong in the happy-go-lucky world of Nintendo.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
