Haven't seen a thread on this, so let's go! ( No pun intended. )
The first trailer for the first-live action Pokemon movie, Detective Pikachu has been revealed:
1. Wow, the Pokemon look weird. I guess its because the medium is live- action and we're used to Pokemon being animated. But I still like it. Especially the anime reference with Jigglypuff. My only question would be that scales are more acceptable for Charizard than fur.
2. Looking at the trailer and cast, It doesn't resemble the game much at all. The cast isn't familiar either: I'm guessing Lucy Stevens replaces Emillia Christie while Ken replaces Mike Baker. And its not the same without Odin Da- no Kaji Tang as Detective Pikachu. So I'm guessing this film is radically different from the game. I just finished Detective Pikachu a few days ago, so I'm wondering how this film that's going to influence a sequel for Detective Pikachu; cause that game screamed sequel. My concern is that they are not going to it if this film is sucessful its going to radically change the sequel for the style of the movie, namely replacing the original characters. Even if Detective Pikachu is an easy game the characters, wity dialouge/voice acting, and storytelling makes it a great game.
3. I think its going to be a great movie. Despite my concern and others, Ryan Renolds makes a great Detective Pikachu. At least they've done research on Pokemon. ( Mr.Mime showing its abillities, trainers etc. ) As a side note, dialouge from the video game proves that Detective Pikachu takes place in the same world as core RPGs.
