Let me say it at the outset: Pokemon Detective Pikachu is not a perfect movie. But for somebody like me, who grew up watching Pokemon anime on Cartoon Network, it is a godsend. The film might not do the human characters justice, but it absolutely nails all the Pokemon. I just wish there were more of them, because everything else, including the underlying mystery in the story, is pretty weak. The star of the film is an amnesiac and adorable Pikachu voiced by always-brilliant Ryan Reynolds , who is also a self-professed world-class detective. The story is incredibly corny and predictable, but Reynolds makes it work.
After 20 Years, the Pokemon Anime Just Redeemed Mr. Mime
Maybe you'll also get a good laugh out of these ridiculous gags. When Nebby transports Ash, Pikachu, and Lycanroc into the middle of a group of cranky Pinsir, our heroes definitely don't maintain their cool. After Professor Kukui proposes to Professor Burnet, his students start planning the wedding as a surprise. None of them are terribly good at concealing their intentions. Jigglypuff's singing—no surprise—lulls Team Rocket to sleep.

If you look back on older dubs, a lot of those performances really don't hold up. Sure, these moments aren't comedy gold, but they're a lost art these days and that in itself ought to be appreciated. In this scene, Team Rocket disguise themselves as Vikings to trick Ash and friends into getting on their boat. Brock remarks how weird it is that Vikings are still around, leaving Ash to reply "They mostly live in Minnesota". If not, then what region would it even be in?
