Mewtwo is very prominent to the plot. A fair chunk.
I kind of liked it because they made it immediately clear that her poor attempt to act like a hard-boiled reporter comes off as goofy as fuck to people in-universe too
i know but there need to also be a character under the overacting and there wasn't really one under there much unfortunately. Also wasnt really sold on Tim being attracted to her (though she did look best in the 'trainer gear' version with the hat and jacket)
I mean, the whole movie is goddamn hilarious in all of the best ways. Just the imagery of Pokémon doing random, everyday things is so comedic. Then Pikachu’s dialogue adds another witty layer. Seeing Pikachu in the backseat of a car with Psyduck, even before the banter started, was really something to see. I was laughing the whole movie.
The climax is pretty terrible and ends up alienating anyone with no Pokémon knowledge who was enjoying the movie up to that point.
The Ditto twist was real real good.
A proper Red/Blue movie.I was really surprised that they left pretty much no room for a sequel with the ending, especially since they've already greenlit one. Where do they go from here exactly? "Detective Pikachu" isn't a thing anymore unless they engage in more body-swapping shenanigans.
