    No matter what, they had to release the game considering that it was only known minorly in the Japanese market for only one half of it's series.

    Meanwhile, to abridge the trailer, "His voice sounds SOOO GOOOOOOD!!!"

    Some set photos came out, showing Ryme City Police Department, as designs of the Graveler, Machoke, and Pancham were leaked.

    I feel like the lede was buried here.

    Alex Hirsch, of Gravity Falls fame, isn’t listed as a writer on this article. He made a vague tweet about projects changing, so I have the feeling he’s no longer involved with the movie.

    My hype for this went way, way down on that fact. Gravity Falls is a serious work of art.

    I played the game, literally the game is easily adaptable to film. Its also the my favorite Pokemon spin off game...we are truly in for a treat.

    I think it's the execution of the jokes along with a very simple to understand story for everyone that makes it for me. It's also very much acknowledging of a lot of previous generations Pokemon, which is great to see being incorporated.

    Not to mention, I can now see why Ryan is Pikachu if we are going off by the likes of Kaiji Tang and what he has contributed to the game role in particular on the English dub.

    To say this, I absolutely love the choice of asthetic for Detective Pikachu. It feels so good, and I can already see it working very well for that.

    That said, I am now fully on-board with the project. The game, was surprisingly funny, with an easy to understand story that while maybe repetitive, works.

    I do have to wonder if the movie is going to end up with the same ending as the game though otherwise some people are going to be mad.....

    I'm arguing there will be changes, but it'll be mainly done due to that I do think Detective Pikachu will kickstart a series of Pokemon films connected together in a way.

    Maybe there was the Ash's Pikachu cameo in game which ties into Detective Pikachu....so it could lead to Pikachu being the lead ins for the Pokémon Live Action Universe.

    At CineEurope, when Universal mention this film they seems to suggest that this was the first of several live action Pokemon films they have planned....

    Looks like the plan to advertise in hype for the upcoming Super Nintendo World from Universal isn't going to work exactly as planned. At least a Super Mario movie is gonna be made with Illumination so it isn't a big loss anyways....

    Huh? The two things are completely unrelated.
