Anyone else triggered by how people say Pokémon as "poky-mon"?? UGH!

It works because they took real animals, then adapted them to look like the pokemon. It's when you do it the other way around, adapting pokemon to look like real life animals, that's when you get the "burn it with fire" results.

So many amazing and complex models... sadly, many are seen only for a few seconds in the movie. What a shame. If I was Nintendo, I would make a 4D ride virtual ride using these model where you basically play a game of _Pokémon Snap_ but with photo-realistic Pokémons instead of the anime version.

The fact that they made the Pika-puppet's eyes glass was super smart and holy Arceus I was not expecting that.

pikachu is so good because of the know-how a n d because it takes the visual storytelling that the anime had and converted it into live-action visual storytelling of the same quality. lion king just straight up gave zero fucks bout that and relied on their technical know-how alone, which is why i humbly beg to say it sucked.

Really gotta appreciate all the work that goes into not only bringing these cartoon characters into the real world, but making them a part of it.

This is the kind of live-action I appreciate. They managed to make the characters come to life without having to make them unidentifiable. A Pikachu is still a Pikachu, Jigglypuff looks like Jigglypuff, and so on and so fourth. The real problem with putting cartoons in the real world is that many artist focus too much on making them look very realistic which only makes them look uncanny. But here, they manage to get it right.

And I honestly prefer this over another Ash Ketchum movie, because knowing the fandom or any fandom in general, is that many would complain and argue if they don't get the main characters perfect which loses potential movie goers. So I like this original idea, plus I think they hinted that Red is in the movie.

But, but but but but, but Pikachu's not a lemur! Or a rabbit! He's (for some reason) a mouse!
