    I’ve never cared about Pokémon at all but I may still have to go see this.

    Let's get these people moving faster!

    Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu isn't as weird as I might have thought. Also, wouldn't have expected the first live action pokemon movie to be a detective story, but I'm actually pretty curious!

    Cum for the Cum God. Prestigious

    I'm so utterly baffled by this and I can't fucking wait to see it.

    But seriously Jesus fucking Christ.
  14. CGI Pokemon are absolutely horrifying, I honestly could barely sit through that trailer. They're so brightly coloured, they do not fit in with how dark the tone is. Wish I shared all of your reactions...

    Everything about this is weird and unsettling but hey I’m on board let’s get weird. Young me deserves a CGI Pokemon movie.

    Will definitely go see this.

    Was not expecting to say that when I first hit play on the trailer.

    Kill it. Kill it with fire. The Pokemon franchise deserves so much better than this.

    This is not at all what I thought a live action Pokemon movie would ever look like.

    That being said - this looks awesome.

    Just curious... what about this bugs you so much? The trailer + the fact that test screenings have gotten really positive reviews makes me pretty hopeful. As a fan of the franchise since it launched, but also a fan of the franchise evolving (I know, I know), I'm really interested in why some people hate this so much.

    I've watched the trailer 5 times in a row now. Can't wait to see this.

    That was my reaction too. Does not have the feel of Pokemon to me but is awesome at the same time. I was also surprised it was so dark in the tone of everything.

    Honestly this looks awesome. They managed to make the pokemon fit into a realistic setting without looking too uncanny. They look believable without being quite as stylized as they are in the games/anime. This also seems like it could turn into a huge summer movie franchise for them similar to other mascot driven movies. I didn't expect this to look this good frankly.

    In regards to the Pokemon themselves, it's the textures and rendering that I just find to be pretty off. Plus, Pikachu doesn't look like Ryan Reynolds voice would come from him, like they're trying to make him a Ted copy something. The whole setting seems really gritty and dystopian which to me doesn't really match up with the games or anime. I get that people dig it, but it's just not for me.
