@Regomania

Problem with that is that he had a big lack of interest with the project, and also has a bigger lack of knowledge with Pokémon.

You know, at first when I read it on another site I honestly thought the source came from a satirical article like The Onion, but apparently it's not.

I don't know how to feel about this.

@Troodon2 To be fair, Detective Pikachu in the game is exactly as weird as a Pikachu voiced by Ryan Reynolds.

Part of me thinks that the PEGI rating for the actual game I saw the other day is related to this.

I don't think I've even seen any foreign media get an adaption of some sort without having adapted the source material first.
