  • My dreams exceed my real life
    80s kids lost their right to be pandered too when they fucked up their reaction to a new ghostbusters

    Wait until your turn.


  • I've learned to tolerate drama...except on the boat
    My generation's turn is already on its way

    Word is that Universal is finally starting to get moving on making like it's 2004 and restarting the Shrek machine
  • I actually liked the trailer.

    It looks like it'll either be awesome or awful, with little ground in between.  As an 80s kid I'm totally seeing it, and no matter what happens Pikapool is probably going to be worth it by itself.

    Also omg he's so FLUFFY I want all the hugs!  I love the semi-realistic look they're going for, not just for Pikachu but all of them.  Creepy Mime is Best Mime.

    This is such a gutsy move that I'll pretty much have to check it out, just to witness the sheer audacity of it.

    Frankly I'm shocked/amused the Pokemon Company has let them get away with writing even this salty.  The original Detective Pikachu went way out of its way to be as milquetoast as possible for a game that employed a budget Danny DeVito.

    Then again, they signed off on the Mystery Dungeons, and one of them involves being murdered by your adoptive father and getting sent to literal Hell.  So...

    Hot take: Being realistic doesn't actually make Mr. Mime any creepier than it already was.

    Also I'm slightly concerned about what people who didn't know Pikachu has fur thought it was like. Like, a rubbery yellow flesh monster?
  • I can all but hear the chimes
    They are long and loud and slow

    Like, we knew.  But we didn't know.

    The world was not ready for the flooflord.
  • For once, or maybe twice, I was in my prime.
    I completely missed the original Pokémon hype train, and have zero nostalgia for the series. But now I'm really interested Detective Pikachu, far more than I'd ever be in an adaptation of the main series games or the anime.
  • I've learned to tolerate drama...except on the boat
    I think a Roger Rabbit-style Pokemon movie would bring things hilariously full-circle

    also i want y'all to consider, just for a moment, a jigglypuff without fur
  • babe how about no

    I mean it obviously has fur, it's a mammal, but like if I were imagining a "real life" pikachu its hair would be a lot shorter and less fluffy. More along the lines of, say, a mouse.

    I don't really have a problem with floofy pikachu but it was definitely a little jarring at first. (I briefly thought he was meant to be a stuffed animal when I was watching the trailer.)

    I wonder if Miltank is in this

    That one actually did catch me off guard.  I seriously thought Jigglypuff really was a rubbery balloonimal fleshmonster.  My world has been devastated.
  • I've learned to tolerate drama...except on the boat
    I thought Jigglypuff was a more feminine Kirby kinda
  • I've learned to tolerate drama...except on the boat
    In terms of physique
  • IJBM: the assumption that jigglypuff is female
  • Sonic does what Pokéwon't
