I wouldn't call this a video game adaptation movie as pikachu is not primarily a video game character, as pikachu and pokemon is more known through it's tv show and movies, nor does this movie involve the events of any particular movie. it's not even cannon in any way. the events of this movie are in no way related to anything in the pokemon lore or universe, and pikachu doesn't talk in the games, tv series, or movies, nor is he ever a detective in said media. pikachu isn't even a main character in any of the pokemon video games. he's just a pokemon you might run into and catch.

The intro last too long, the rest is a theory recap of something that isn’t yours and only a few seconds of confirming something on Twitter. This was a waist of time.

Ok matpat listen not to make your work feel like it was a waste but it was kinda already widely known by hardcore pokemon fans that ditto is a failed Mewtwo, like it's in the game lore and sometimes when trying to clone a mew into a Mewtwo you actually get a ditto

Am i the only one who is hoping for a live-action version based off of Pokemon Emerald? With May or Brendan? I think that'd be dope and they could set up a cinematic universe from it. They could title the movie "Hoenn" or "Emerald".

Hey, so like, super ditto. In the Pokemon ranger game (the one with ukulele pichu ans summoning signs, I can't recall its name) One of the main boss persons has a ditto. It can change at will into Pokemon without them being present. Just interested in thoughts if anyone's seen it.

Detective Pikachu is Ash’s Pikachu which is actually a Ditto unaware it’s a Ditto...

@Ryan Morgan Christison ditto took the form of the antagonist's son and his female assistant.

@AyeItzMJ... who was a ditto?
AyeItzMJ - 2 days ago
@Ryan Morgan Christison your theory doesn't work cuz detective Pikachu is revealed to be the protagonist's father with memory loss.

I think that specific ditto was actually a clone of mew two; as a clone of a clone it would explain the extra instability shown when it was defeated

Did anyone else get irked by the fact that only one Ditto in the anime had a derpy face when it transformed and the guy the boss man in Detective Pikachu managed to take it from the little girl and employ it?

Wasn't there an anime episode where Ditto transforms into a cannon and shoots down Team Rocket's balloon, or did my memory make that up?

Stop saying first watchable or something game movie:
Tomb Raider 2018 was ok
Rampage was ok
Resident Evil was good
Warcraft had some problems, but the movie was good.
BTW I liked Detective Pikachu :)

Mewtwo's consciousness-transfer powers COULD also explain the Mystery Dungeon series to a degree...
Also, did anyone else expect Howard's Eevee to be like Red's Eevee from the manga? The one that can switch between Eeveelutions at will?

The pikachu might be ashes theory is invalid now tho. Since the pikachu was actually just deadpool guy.

eh Matpat, i do wanna burst your bubble, i knew since 2000 that Ditto is the failed clone of Mew. i got my Yellow Edition 1999 or so and i immediatly knew that, especially since i have seen the very first Movie.

It's never explicitly said anywhere in Pokemon games or otherwise that Ditto IS a failed Mew clone, it's just assumed.

Does anybody feel ultimately baited? I really thought he was going to go on with the "Pikachu is a Ditto in disguise" gist. For the first time in my life, I felt disappointment in a film theory video...

Who am I kidding, I can't stay mad at that diet Coke drinking face ;)
