  1. Detective Pikachu returns in a lengthy trailer focusing on the trusty pokémon detective, his human companion, and the mystery they both set out to solve. If the hype surrounding the film can be used to judge how well it will do, expect it to be huge. Detective Pikachu tells the story of Tim Goodman (Justice Smith), a young man who grew up wanting to become a pokémon trainer, but soured on the idea along the way. As the film begins, he's an unhappy, mild-mannered telemarketer (or at least doing a job that looks very similar to telemarketing). Tim's basically the vision of what happens to trainers in the pokémon world when they can't become successful adventurers. That is, until the night he comes home to find a talking pikachu (Ryan Reynolds)with a caffeine addiction in his apartment. With Tim's father, a legendary police officer on the Rhyme City force, missing, it's up to the unlikely duo to solve the disappearance. The new trailer delves into the backstory of the titular pikachu detective. We learn that he suffers from amnesia and woke up on a lonely country road alone. The only clue he has to go on is the name Harry Goodman written on the inside of his adorable Sherlock Holmes hat (incidentally, that style of hat is called a deerstalker, but it just seems wrong to say that pikachu wears a deerstalker). That leads him to Tim's apartment and the two pair up to find Harry, Tim's missing father. Their journey takes them on a collision course with a mysterious woman, a seedy underground fighting ring run by some shady characters, and a special ops squad of Greninja. Oh, and Mewtwo appears as a possible antagonist. Now, aside from these two trailers and a selection of tidbits revealed in interviews, details on the story beyond that are scarce. So, here are a few of my theories: Tim's dad got wrapped up in a large scale investigation of Team Rocket. My guess is it's going to be Team Rocket rather than one of the other criminal teams that have existed across the Pokémon franchise because of Mewtwo and its history of being involved with Team Rocket. Team Rocket's lower members participate and profit off of the operation of underground pokémon battle arenas that aren't as safe as mainstream ones. Getting wrapped up in all of this, Harry Goodman stumbled across evidence of forbidden experimentation going on at a secret lab, which can be seen during one of the rapid cut moments in the second trailer. However, Harry was discovered and used as fodder in the experiment - which transformed him into a pokémon, the adorable detective himself. This isn't the first time this has happened in Pokémon history and I'm going to guess there will be some nod to Pokémon Red & Blue's continuity with the lead scientist being named Bill. I'm also going to go out on a limb and guess that the Flareon we see form out of light on what appears to be an opulent desk is Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket, using the refined transformation tech (which I further guess is based off of the pokémon Ditto's abilities). Flareon also might just be evolving or coming out of a pokéball, but the framing and animation implies that it might be something more important. The mysterious woman we see adventuring with Tim is likely a scientist who escaped from the lab with some hidden agenda either related to the good detective or Mewtwo itself. I'm leaning toward the Mewtwo possibility because she appears to have a psyduck companion and that's one of the few major psychic pokémon we see in the trailers. This new trailer comes on the heels of the announcement that The Pokémon Company would also be releasing a complete remake of the first Pokémon film, Pokémon: The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back, using CGI called Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution. The remake is slated for release on July 12 of this year. Detective Pikachu releases in theaters later this year on May 10. What are some of your theories for the movie so far?

  3. Mewtwo returns to the spotlight in an upcoming reimagined take on the original Pokémon film, Pokémon: The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back. Released in 1998 in Japan and 1999 in North America to immense commercial success, its $30 million budget bringing in over $160 million. This spurred the creation of an ongoing film franchise of which the upcoming remake will be the 22nd. Pokémon: The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back tells the story of Mewtwo, a clone of the legendary Pokémon Mew. Armed with immensely powerful psychic abilities, the creature is used by Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket, to absolutely obliterate anyone who stands in the evil organization's way. That is, until Mewtwo goes rogue and decides to take over the world. He lures trainers from all across the land to participate in a Pokémon tournament. Of course, it's all a ruse to use cloning technology to create his own army of powerful Pokémon. Ash Ketchum, the long-time protagonist of the Pokémon anime series finds himself and his friends caught up in Mewtwo's schemes and takes it upon himself to stop the Pokémon's ambitions. We don't know a whole lot about the upcoming remake, Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution, though the trailer posted today on the official Pokémon YouTube channel gives a feel for what the CG of the film will look like. Many fans have been comparing the cleaner, smoother look of the animations against the upcoming Detective Pikachu film's darker and more grounded visual approach to Pokémon. So far, there doesn't seem to be a consensus as to whether this is a better or worse direction to take CG Pokémon. With both Detective Pikachu and Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution releasing in 2019, we're about to have a year full of Pokémon. Thankfully, the two films won't be competing against one another as Detective Pikachu releases on May 10, 2019 and Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution will be hitting theaters in July. However, it will certainly be interesting to see how audiences respond to two very different visual approaches to the traditionally 2D anime series. I won't lie; this certainly scratches a nostalgia itch I didn't know I had. There was a lot of potential for the original Pokémon film that got muddled in its North American adaptation with cut scenes and altered dialogue that made Mewtwo more clearly into a villain than the morally ambiguous antagonist presented in the Japanese release. Also, the original film only had a runtime of 75 minutes due to the Pikachu short that showed before it in theaters. It's more than likely that Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution will expand on that story and better able to deliver on the original vision of the film than the version North American audiences received in 1999. Color me cautiously optimistic. Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution will release on July 12, 2019.
