Until now, not a word's been said about this movie on this forum. So, have the first trailer:
It looks fantastic, honestly. I know some people will have problems with some of the designs, but I like them all so far. And at least they all very closely resemble the Pokemon they're supposed to be; this isn't like what Dragonball Evolution did to Shenron (or everyone, for that matter).

It's Pokémon, all right. Oi, this is going to take some getting used to... Pikachu looks so soft and Charizard is pretty cool. Mr. Mime makes my skin crawl and Greninja was moving too quickly for me to get a good look. The others...were accurate and not too jarring. Just need a while to get familiar with them. All of them, really.
I checked out Detective Pikachu Friday. As you can guess, I really liked it. The villain's evil plan was weird in that way that incorporates Pokémon, that wouldn't make sense if Pokémon didn't exist, and I love that they made the Pokémon look natural, like they're real living breathing things, and that it includes current Pokémon, and doesn't just ride the Genwun nostalgia train.
All told, as a regular watcher of the anime and movies, I'm a little sick at this point of "The Pokémon Theme," and/or Mewtwo. By the end of the year, Mewtwo will be in TWO movies. This one, and the 22nd anime movie.
Also, I've never been a big fan of Pikachu. (I prefer Raichu), but damn if I didn't fall for his cuteness in this film.
All in all, it's a good, fun flick. Would watch again.

Oh the game's storyline is radically different. The only thing that's basically the same is Harry Goodman's car crash (though why is for a different reason), Pikachu's amnesia, and Mewtwo having a role to play. It's a pretty fun ride and yeah, I'd recommend it.
When you're idly watching the 2015 March Madness college basketball, half-way paying attention to your Alpha Sapphire, Dex-chaining Feebas and the 4th happens to show up as a shiny!
Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.

Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.

ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.

pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.

Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was

ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."

ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.

ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
