Just A Short Thought Because Why Not? Posted on 2018-11-14 by Hap Lea

So, I recently saw the Trailer for Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures, "Pokemon: Detective Pikachu"; staring Ryan Reynolds and Will Smith's youngest son, Justice Smith. I'm willing to give this movie a shot because unlike the animated movie, "Pokemon: I Choose You" where things were retconned and Pikachu talked; Pikachu talking was out of left field and it only happened at the last act when all things were said and done. In this live action Pokemon movie, it's already established out of the gate that Pikachu can talk, however, Justice Smith's character is the only one who can understand him. That to me at least says that this is going to be different and possibly a creative new approach on the Pokemon franchise.
