    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

    The poster with Articuno vs Steelix is a reference to a scene in one of the earliest OP of the cartoon, I believe it might have been in an OP of the Japanese version.

    I like to think the reason for the no pokeballs is a nood to “Pokémon Conquest” but that’s just me

    I had 2 best moments in the movie:
    1) forcing Psyduck to use Psychic attack to defend from Greninjas, and after that waking up The Mountains (aka. Torteras)
    2) Pikachu singing Pokemon theme song (at the same time funny but sad)

    I wonder if Erik noticed the fact that Tim threw the pokeball at cubone the same way ash does

  • Victorfilms Lego animations

    You forgot the reporters namr being cynthia. Might be a reference to the gen 4 champion.

    I thought the step joke was a nod to the pokewalker that came with HeartGold/SoulSilver

    Least favorite moment was when it was just a giant Torterra garden and not a dramatic reveal for Groudon.

    Literally all of these videos just ignore the super Mario reference. After Pikachu had his flashback there were two plumbers one wearing red and blue overalls and one wearing green of course.

  • Adalexen The Time Traveling Unicorn

    The ditto police assistant is a nod to Pokemon sun and moon. There was a quest where ditto was pretending to be people around the town and one of them was a cop

    Quick mention: the first two big balloons that got pumped air into were Gengar and Jigglypuff, which is probably a reference to episode 72 where there was a legendary giant Gengar (and Alakazam) and Jigglypuff.

    • 6 3
      6 3 26 days ago

      More likely a reference to the original games that open with Gengar and Jigglypuff battling.

    am I the only one who noticed this but at the very end of the movie when Ryan Reynolds goes to get coffee theres a collective group of squirtles near the stairs and one of them is wearing a BLACK LEATHER JACKET.
