I think we all know what movie will sweep the Oscars next year!!
Okay, that might be an exaggeration. But I think I am safe in saying that this movie will be a highlight of 2019. This new trailer dropped by Warner Bros. today gives us more Pokémon and more humor and more theories.
First, let’s talk Pokémon. The biggest oh my gosh moment was Mewtwo. We also got to see more Charizard, Machamp, Snubbull, Lickitung, and Ludicolo. As well as Snorlax and Eevee. My favorite cameo was from Cubone. I love that emo pokémon. But I think a hilarious observation that I saw on Twitter and I feel absolutely horrible that I don’t remember who I saw post this was that Ludicolo is giving off some serious Gritty vibes.
Now if you’re familiar with the Pokémon games and universe already, you might have started to catch on to this but the theory that’s been discussed today that Detective Pikachu is actually Tim Goodman’s father. An experiment gone wrong and some amnesia is most likely causing all the hoopla. Polygon’s Petrana Radulovic explains the theory best.
This slightly worries me because I would like to believe Pikachu is as foul-mouthed and caffeine addicted as he is in the trailer. But we can’t have everything so I’ll take what I can get with this trailer that looks like it will be a blast.
Detective Pikachu hits theaters May 10, 2019.
