From “Merc with a Mouth” to “yellow electric rat who investigates”.
There’s going to be a Detective Pikachu movie coming out next year. And truth be told, I’m actually looking forward to it.
Ryan Reynolds voicing the only Pikachu who can converse with a human with actual sentences and words? Brilliant. And that realistic fur and Pokémon coming to life; I had to double-check if I was on my meds at one point.
Anyway, the internet reacts to the trailer in interesting ways. Let’s go take a look. First, the positive ones…

When the Sonic movie gets revealed, it’s pretty much going to be the same as Detective Pikachu but fans are going to be more pissed for some reason

To be fair, Mr. Mime does look freaky.

Let’s not forget about that Squirtle “Missing” poster…
…If you let my Squirtle go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. #DetectivePikachu pic.twitter.com/ue6YQNRRrI

I’m gonna go with “Team Rocket shenanigans” on this one…
My biggest issue with the Detective Pikachu trailer…
WHO LOST THEIR SQUIRTLE?
WHY IS THIS PANCHAM STILL MISSING?
WAS IT TEAM ROCKET?!

I look forward to the obvious cop typecast guest cameos featuring Dean Norris, Michael Chiklis, and Andre Braugher.
