    Yo, they burned Mr. Mime alive. How are we forgetting about this? How am I supposed to get Mr. Mimes face knowing it would be his last moment alive as the fire approached him.

    Am i the only one who is hoping for a live-action version based off of Pokemon Emerald? With May or Brendan? I think that'd be dope and they could set up a cinematic universe from it. They could title the movie "Hoenn" or "Emerald".

    Such a beautiful, satisfying and pleasantly surprising movie, seeing Ryan Reynolds at the end of the movie as Harry was just sooooo good , it was the cherry on top ,and then I was sure the Pokémon live action movie universe has a bright future ahead and wow *I just loved this movie* and Psyduck was sooooo cute and funny

    i thought you'd see more different pokemons but after like half of the movie you have literally seen all the pokemons you'll see and they just reuse the models

    Not 100% sure, but I think that the one scene in the stadium when Gengar and Blastoise are fighting is a nod to a scene in Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You (2017), when the same ones are fighting. Just a guess, though.

    There is an O seen above the battle area when they first enter (it’s the place where charizard and pikachu fight) and in Howard Clifford’s office there is a similar O displayed idk if it’s a coincidence but it would make sense bc that’s where they tested the R
    You can see it in the corner @ 5:49

    Only I'm confused with in this movie is how long was his dad in pikachu? Does anyone have any idea
    Because pikadad talks like he was pikachu for years but with scene with charizard it seems to say that the kids dad wasn't in pikachu not so long ago like a week or a day
    Or a weekday lol

    YOOOO . My friend had a theory . What if R is pokedust because in pogo you use pokedust to level up a Pokémon to make it stronger , and what does R do in the movie , it makes the Pokémon stronger

    I suspected Pikachu to actually be Harry almost from the beginning of that movie...I was pissed, when it was revealed, that I was right

    It's crazy that this movie exists. I still think the World of Warcraft movie is the most "I can't believe this actually happened" video game movie, but this is a close second. Just like with Warcraft, I'm so blown away with how good the movies both look. Video game movies guys! Remember what they used to be like? How far we've come...

    My favorite part was where Pikachu tried to climb up onto Tim's shoulder and Tim said Nope we're not doing that as he puts Pikachu down then Pikachu says Fine I'll walk I'm trying to get in a hundred steps. This movie was abousetly amazing and it was definitely worth watching first run

    Seriously, ami the only one that thought of the smash brothers brawl reference? The giant pokemon floats where a reference to the games pokfoats stage, and mewtwo and pikachu were fighters in said game.

    I figured out that Picachu was Tims father from the first trailer, but not untill we finde out that mewtwo coulde do that body swtsh thing did I understand how.
    By the way,did we know he could do that before this movie? I must have missed that.

    Mewtwo's first words in the tank right at the start were "they're outside", I'm sure he says that in the 1999 movie right at the start too
