Detective Pikachu is a Pikachu who was once a Pokemon belonging to famous detective Harry Goodman. After a freak accident, he gained the ability to speak as Harry had mysteriously vanished without a trace. Meeting up with Harry's son, Tim, the two of them seek out the truth to Harry's disappearance. Detective Pikachu has a rather smart set of lips, interrogating whomever suspects or knows anything about the whereabouts of Harry, as well as an unhealthy obsession with coffee.
Hello, and a happy March 10! In lieu of the celebration of Nintendo's most famous mascot.. we're taking a look at one of Game Freak's mascots.
Kaiji Tang voices the detective in the 2018 game, and while he does a decent job at it, I feel like the performance isn't quite as energetic as it should be, considering the Pikachu is super into the whole detective line of work and trying to solve the mystery of Tim's father. It's alright, is what I personally can say about it. Certainly not bad though.
Ol' Wade Wilson himself leaps into the fray with the 2019 movie, and let me tell you, he absolutely steals the show in this movie. While the casting seems questionable on paper, Ryan Reynolds brings his own charm and the fact that he ad-libbed most of his lines without flaw (as far as I can tell in the movie) makes the experience better. I can totally buy him being this energetic Pokemon who's clearly overdosing on caffeine.
