I’ve discussed the film “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” a couple of times here on “The Chronicles” and shared its first trailer (HERE) and the second (HERE) and if you haven’t yet enjoyed that weirdness I cannot stress it any more emphatically that you do since its some wild stuff. Today, the film opens up in theaters everywhere and I think that this is going to be one wild ride. Let’s review the premise and casting after the theatrical poster.
The Premise: In the Pokémon universe, Tim Goodman is a former Pokémon Trainer and the son of prominent detective Harry Goodman. When his father disappears in a car crash, Tim arrives in Ryme City and ends up meeting Detective Pikachu who was Harry’s former Pokémon partner. Tim is somehow able to understand the Detective, and they reluctantly team up to find Harry and uncover the mystery surrounding his disappearance. Chasing clues through the streets of Ryme City, the dynamic duo soon discover a devious plot that poses a threat to the Pokémon universe.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Though I’m not sure about seeing it right away in the theaters, I do think that I’d like to catch this on the big screen since the characters and effects around them might be a lot more fun to see in that setting. I wasn’t sure what to make of this at first but after the second trailer I was hooked on the madness that was being displayed on my screen. What about you readers? Will you be seeing this one on the quick or will you be waiting a little bit on it. Chime in down below in the comments section.
