    I see you love Ryan Reynolds but. . . . HE DID NOT MAKE THE MOVIE. The two leads did great to me.

    They should've casted Dan Green as Mewtwo. That would've been amazing and a great callback to the first Pokémon movie!

    It was kind of weird because Ryan Reynolds is 42 and Justice is 24 so I think it would have made more sense with someone older.

    this is the gayest shit ever created on the face of this planet! this is not pokemon at all! the story was not even about pokemon, but about a stupid kid that don't even like pokemon who lost his daddy in the mall! this movie is a piece of shit! nothing to do with pokemon! this the first of it's kind too and already they fuck it up with bullshit!

    I thought the movie was pretty fun to watch for the comedy bits the emotional ones had no weight to it so I kinda came off as weird because the main character is pretty fucking awkward and bland at points and it feels like they were trying to make interactions like the Pokémon games but who the hell exchanges information if they are “beaten”

    Loved it as a Pokémon fan! Good movie for all like you said. It has its flaws, so I agree that it’s a good time no alcohol required!

    I enjoyed this movie last night, i do have a few problems with it sure but thats cause im a fan and i wanted it! lol
    I feel it didnt have enough pokemon battling in this film, i know its a Detective move, but its still pokemon right?
    Could you do another review "spoiler talk" if you will, so you can go a bit more in depth to some of the points you make here such as the pysics moment you mentioned. And the batman reference? cause i missed that

    This movie was horrible.. Reynolds playing Pikachu made no fucking sense

    This movie was so annoyingly bad, terrible dialogue, terrible story telling... but ooh we threw like so much money at vfx! That's what a good movie is right?
    The entire time watching this, all i could think about is what the fuck did the screenplay for this look like?
    How did this ever get made? Do the directors and writers hate pokemon?
    Like seriously they used a majority of the most unlikable pokemon as characters for the movie...
    why were the giant mountain turtles even needed? Oh they weren't by the way.
    why did they sneak into a research facility when there is literally a tent open at the back of the facility?
    So much of this movie made no logical sense at all.
    Ryan Reynolds is to the Pikachu movie what Jim Carrey will be to the Sonic movie... The only reason to watch.

    Pokeman isn't Deadpool. Deadpool is Van Wilder.

    Was decent and the pokemon were cute that was enough. Would prefer a conventional pokemon film with Ash going around being a pokemon trainer instead battling gym leaders and catching pokemon.

    Reynolds carries it. That's the bottom line. Next one is how good the designs are, things you think is not important until you see the abomination called sonic live movie. All pokemons look great, no sight of my fave, blaziken, but the classics are there.. Last one that makes the movie good is the story is more focused, it's not about "just" pokemon, but it's about detective pikachu solving a case, there's twist in it and overall i like it, a good video game movie, a rare thing since the old days. Enjoyable, fun, recommended. Imdb and rotten only give 6? What these critics expect? Plot like capote or good will hunting? Same sites give avengers 9 lol 🤣

    I think it was aiming for small kids. I didn't buy the Two Main protagonists - the boy and the girl. The CGI and action were pumped up, and i liked the actor who played the villain, but the lines and the screenplay aimed for children.

    Story was meh. I needed more pokemon battles but it was mainly Tim fighting Ditto. Was expecting team rocket or other legendaries, but nope it was just mewtwo and dynamax torterra.

  • Tiefe dunkle Mitternacht

    You know the movie sucks when you watch a dubbed version (without Ryan Reynolds voice).

    As a huge pokemon fan I was expecting this movie to suck like most video game movies do but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Jeremy - you call BS on the laws of physics in a world where Magcargo exists - a pokemon with an internal body temp exceeding 10k Kelvin (for reference, The Sun has a temp of 5.7k Kelvin, making Magcargo twice as hot as the Sun) - a wild Magcargo appearing next to you would literally make you spontaneously catch fire, and melt.

    It’s tooo PG -13
    Now give me fucking Rated R Pokémon with at real script.... 😀 I’d be sooo hype for that , acting wasn’t bad I feel the writers just gave everyone shit lines

      Wait the movie was pg was it pg-13 for you? And hopefully they actually make a pg-13 pokemon movie to draw in the older audience because that = more money

    I found in parts this film was aimed at more older audience than who actually went to see this film. Example, miming pouring gasoline over mr mime and threatening to set him on fire with a imaginary match.

      Ok and? This is targeting the 90s kids
      Not only that there's more adults today that play pokemon than kids so it was smart to add that in and Idk about you but there was hardly any kids when I went same with other people on reddit
