The only positive is that Endgame didn't make as much as people thought it was going to in weekend 3. If anything, maybe Pokémon did it's job after all.

Seriously, I want a sequel/spinoff/new movie in this universe already. (and maybe a few new models for diversity so not everyone will have the same few Pokémon as pets)

How is that a positive?

because of Detective PIkachu I decided to binge the pokemon movies I have seen.

Watched Extreme Speed Genesect, it was pretty bad.

Hoping Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie is better.

The vast majority of the Pokemon in this movie don't repeat their names. I don't know if that's going for a more animalistic vibe or copyright.

Also,

Are the giant Torterras the largest Pokemon, period? The only ones coming close are the lighthouse Dragonite and the Pokémopolis Pokemon.

After seeing the movie, I do think this a good point to do more movies in this universe if they choose. Maybe one with Kamen Rider Drive as an actual character? The movie itself I thought was perfectly okay. I didn't find particularly funny or that interesting, but Hollywood didn't mess it up. The movie embraced it's source material and didn't feel like it was embarrassed by it. Though more little things like, more people using Pokéballs (only showed up once) and Pokémon battles would be appreciated next time. Also really enjoyed the pre-show they had at the Nitehawk here in NYC. Played Pokémon Stadium gameplay, old commercials of parents not wanting kids to watch the show, old commercials. Really fun.

I saw the film on Saturday with my dad and I enjoyed it. Bring on the Pokemon live-action cinematic universe, WB, Legendary and The Pokemon Company.

I know Drive's actor Ryoma Takeuchi had a cameo here
as an adult Red, but there's no way he could take the role in a Red and Blue movie.
Remember, they film in English and dub into Japanese, this is a US production. Ryoma is actually the Japanese VA for Tim Goodman, which he will have been already cast for before filming the cameo.

Yeah, I know. I was just joking because he was in it. Which I totally forgot about until he showed up.

I think the whole movie just has little nods to the Kanto anime like that so that isn't surprising, such as
Misty's Psyduck and Dupica's beady-eye Ditto that can turn into other things. Even the whole "kick a Magikarp and it will evolve" factoid.


Edit: couple things of note:

1. Still nothing in Corocoro about the Galar game, but they do mention that Armored Mewtwo is actually a thing now associated with that movie...so yeah, the "Armored Pokémon" hint about Gen VIII is more likely than ever at this point.

2. There's another Pokémon Rumble game launching as we speak on cells. Not really a fan after trying the F2P 3DS one but...hey, at least it's finally added Alolan Pokémon.

I pre-ordered Detective Pikachu on Amazon over the weekend, and this morning, they have an estimated delivery date, but one that doesn't make sense. June 3. Which doesn't make sense for two reasons. One, that's a Monday. Everyone knows new Blu-Rays are released on Tuesday, with some rarely releasing on a Friday. And two, that's less than a month away. Considering how well it did at the box office this weekend, bringing it out on Blu-Ray less than a month after release makes no sense. The only big name film I can think of that had such a narrow window between theater and home media was Once Upon A Deadpool, but that was a limited, edited re-release of a movie that was already available on Blu-Ray. I would suspect August 13, at the earliest, for a proper Blu-ray Release Date.

According to Serebii, the magazine said that armoured Mewtwo was something for the movie and wouldn't be appearing in any games. If that's true, it more or less completely debunks the armour form rumours.

To be specific, it says it's a "movie exclusive".

It's the same terminology as when Sentai movie mecha are "movie exclusive."

Doesn't have anything to do with the games; it does mean that the form is probably not showing up in the anime series though.

Mewthree will never be canon, nor will Pikablu, Crystal Onix, or anything else you believed in 1999

Eh, I still believe Armored Mewtwo will be akin to Primal Dialga and such, not in the actual games.

We know from datamining it'll be in Pokemon GO though.

Amazon often puts placeholder dates in stuff.

Okay? Was there a point to this comment? Or just felt like saying something random?

You know this one exists, right? It was an actual concept that evolved into Marill.

Exactly, and they could've easily done Crystal Onix had Onix gotten an Alolan Form.
