This was so much fun! :jonny5: I was literally smiling for like 20 minutes when it began, I was so happy to actually see freaking Pokemon at the movies. :jonny2:

 

This better be super successful so we can get another one, but I’m done with the detective storyline. Do something with team Rocket or smth. They’d bring so many kiis. :duca:

I saw this yesterday and loved it. Something about seeing Pokémon on the big screen being enjoyed by a packed theater made me emotional. :'(

 

I would’ve liked more references to the main games, but its stand-alone feel makes it more accessible to casual audiences. I can see them making more references in the sequel.

 

Y’all better go out and SUPPORT this film. :psyduck:

 

Edit: I can see why Pokémon Co. requested for the movie to refrain from showing too many Pokémon battles, I feel like battles wouldn’t translate that well onto live-action given that it’s essentially dogfighting. :psyduck: They should try to find a way around that tho.

I actually really enjoyed this. Except for a couple of Pokemon (that Charizard was a no-no :biblio: ), the CGI animation was really good! I was also disappointed that there weren't many battles, but the story and pace were good enough to keep me interested.

Other than Rita, was I the only one SCREAMING that Diplo also made a cameo appearance? :ahh:

 

Spoiler

 I also loved when Pikachu sang the theme song when he was sad, brought back memories. 

And I love that sexy zaddy Ryan Reynolds also appeared in the flesh too.

I figured the twist like 10 minutes before. :rip: Awesome film though! I was filled with so much nostalgia and the story was great too. Ryan was the highlight (also really liked Kathryn, good for her)

Saw this.   Def not good. Only kids might (and that a BIG Might) enjoy this..

Spoiler

The parade thing and ending was so embarrassing and he is not believable as his.. You know. 

 

 

Good cg in most of the movie but when it was bad it was BAD! It took you out of the movie. THE MEWTO in one part of the movie was so bad and looked like ps2 rendered awful Idk if I can say bc spoilers but Def a straight to Netflix type of movie.

Highest rated video games adaptation of all time! Pokémon kinda did that :clap3: 

You guys really thought eh? I'd say honestly 5/10 exactly in line with rotten tomatoes.  RYAN saved this film from being complete awful garbage.

This was kinda cute. Obviously a movie mostly for kids though, which made the forced sexual/toilet humor really awkward tbh. The CGI flipped between believable and unbelievable.

 

Pikachu and Psyduck were stars. :psyduck: Ryan did well.

 

5/10 sounds about right. Tbh I did not expect a lot of the twists though. :rip: It was too confusing to piece all that together when every twist was a Scooby-Doo reveal left and right.

Same. That's basically how the game ends, and leaves it open for a sequel.
