    Oh goose Prestigious

    I don't know if she means Tim, Lucy or Pikachu but either way she's right; wait it's probably him reacting to Pikachu which is also yes

    I thought this was....pretty bad. But also, I really liked looking at the Pokémon and the world that they created so I got enjoyment out of that. I could definitely see a good movie coming from this world, it just wasn’t this one.

    Saw this tonight, theater was probably half filled, which seems pretty good for a Monday night.

    I really enjoyed the movie overall. The characters were great, and the plot/storyline was for the most part great as well. And of course, the pokemon were outstanding, just seeing all of the different ones they incorporated was really cool. While I enjoyed the entire thing I will say the first half overall was better than the second half. Some scenes I feel were unnecessary or dragged out like the torterra scene
    One thing I don't understand though is I know that Tim could hear Pikachu because of the purple gas, but why couldn't anyone else who was exposed to the gas understand him? (at least that is how it seemed)

    Also not sure how I felt about Mewtwo talking lol, seemed kind of out of place with the movie
     
  6. my understanding is that mewtwo put harry’s mind into Pikachu and also made it so Tim could understand him because he told him to “find the son”, rather than the purple gas.

    So assuming that this weekend...

    Mewtwo could communicate telepathically in Pokemon: the First Movie for what it’s worth.

    Yeah, wasn't Mewtwo the only Pokemon who could talk in the anime, outside of Meowth?

    Many legendary Pokémon can speak telepathically.

    And Slowking.

    Yeah I really stopped paying attention to anything Pokemon related after Gen 2 heh. I think I remember that with Slowking, tho

    You're missing so much awesome after Gen 2.

    Does the name Kevin mean anything to you? Prestigious

    I didn't think I would learn any Pokemon beyond Gen 3 but then Pokemon Go came out. Now I am a Pokemon master.

    Yessss put Kathryn Newton in everything.

    ...Ryan Reynolds is pretty cool, too.

    Comparing it to another recent CGI-heavy movie, Battle Angel Alita was more poignant, albeit a bit more all over the place narratively. I guess it makes sense that the kids' movie makes sense/is relatively simple. But like, it was his dad the whole time? Was Ryan Reynolds Pikachu, or was Pikachu Ryan Reynolds? hahaha

    I really really liked this. Love how it ended kind of wrapping up this story. Really hope this does well so we get more of this amazing world they brought to life. More please. Hoping for different characters next time though.

    If it doesnt make a lot, I feel like they could get out of the city setting and make it more of an adventure type movie so theres less Pokemon, less CG and can have a smaller budget.

    also I've decided that I'm ride or die for Lucy and Psyduck
     
  20. Forever and ever I will also believe this to be true. There’s something about that feeling of playing ruby or sapphire, the first fully colored Pokémon rpg, and I love that there were only gen 3 Pokémon in the game

    I think I already said it in here but I’m all for just remaking movies in the Pokémon universe. Give me inception but with Pokémon

    If there is one region I want to see in a live action film it’s Unova. It’s also the easiest to not screw up culturally because it’s based on New York.

    I loved this! I immediately cried at the first Pidgeot on screen because I’m a big baby. Script wasn’t super strong in some places but I also understand I’m not the main audience which helps to temper expectations.
