The Detective Pikachu movie trailer came out and it's the most cursed thing ever

Recommended Posts

I loved it. I completely forgot that this was coming out until it popped up on my timeline.

Definitely going to the cinema to see this!

That moment when Legendary treats the generations more equally than Game Freak does

I wasn't expecting the "realistic Pokémon" aesthetic, but I think I'm liking it. And when Pikachu says "oh my God," is he referring to Arceus or some other God?

Arceus doesn't seem to be a super well known thing outside Sinnoh so probably some other god.  

Like, you'd think people would talk about it more if it was a widely known creation diety, but they don't.  Arceus is almost never mentioned, and people usually venerate local Pokémon more than it (ie Reshiram and Zekrom in Unova).

The only cursed thing is that it's not Kaiji Tang.

NOW SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

I mean, it's a bit odd hearing Deadpika (Still works, but probably should have had Kaiji Tang for both for at least some consistency).

As much as we all love Kaiji Tang he unfortunately doesn't have the star power to push ticket sales like Ryan Reynolds does.

For sure, but neither would have had the meme power of Danny DeVito.

Well, that's something. Guess sometimes fan work can be used for the series it's from, eh? (I mean, it's not 1:1. Just look at the Mr. Mime in the image in the article)

Well Danny DeVito is too busy doing that Dumbo movie, he couldn't be Detective Pikachu

Huh. This is a surprisingly calm thread. The trailer took me by surprise, that's for sure. A lot of people noticed the attention to details, and the main characters seem interesting enough. Most designs are surprisingly well integrated, they might stick as odd alone but in the live action's world they're set in, at least for me the pokemon are designed well.

I can't apply that sentiment to Psyduck and Jigglypuff, though.

I highly doubt they will make Pikachu say anything too offensive, but if Pikachu does say something to offend, what do you think he will say?

I think the most offensive thing they will make Pikachu say is "you stink," "you are stupid," or something.

Wait, where did it say that it was going to be PG-13?

 

Other than that, I was pleasantly surprised at the trailer, Pikachu looks adorable, Charizard looks badass, I can understand some of the discorse with Jigglypuff but it doesn't phase me, and Psyduck looks like how I would imagine Psyduck to look like.

I was joking to my mom about seeing this because of freaking Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu but it actually looks decent, and it has nods to the actual games, which means the guys behind this either:

A. Are fans of the series.

Or B. Did their research.

The main reason I ask is because it seems a bit weird coming from GameFreak, since, to the general public, Pokemon is well known for being kid-friendly.

Even though there are really dark Pokedex entires.

And SM basically being a less sexual retelling of Kill la Kill.

And Lysandre wanting to commit genocide in XY.

And pretty much all of Gen 5.

.....

How is this series E rated again? I mean, it's not as bad as freaking Sacred Stones, with Orsons implied necrophilia and most of Valter's lines toward Eirika.
