We have alaways loved watching Pokemon as a cartoon, and now the first trailer of the film DETECTIVE PIKACHU was relased few days ago and we simply love the trailer as the pikachu turns detective and there are few funny anecdotes that make us go lol.
However this didnt go down well the fans of the cartoon lover as well as many movie buffs. The social media was bombarded with several memes.
we understand the intense reaction to Detective PIKAHU’s first trailer, you have to understand where the Pokémon fandom stands in 2018. As a franchise, Pokémon taps into a yearning for adventure: it’s just you, your pet pals, and the open road. Defeat the gyms and you’ll get actual emblems for your success. No parents, no responsibilities. The possibilities seem endless. For a while, that fantasy is enough for Pokémon fans — and then they grow up.
For years now, there’s been a growing shift within the Pokémon fandom, as the franchise continues to cater to children even as its original audience ages. The kids who sneaked Game Boys under their desk in the ‘90s now have wrinkles and mortgages, but the games themselves have been preserved in amber. Ash Ketchum will never truly age.
Fan art with savage, grittier renditions of pokémon regularly goes viral on the internet, accruing millions of page views and hits. Pokémon fan games that blow up on the internet often promise storylines where protagonists are older, or are in more complicated situations than simply having the desire to catch them all. And whenever a new game in the core franchise gets released, weary fans always ask: is this one actually going to go somewhere different?
Hardcore old-school fans want nothing more than for Pokémon to evolve as a franchise. This, then, might explain why we’ve suddenly been saddled with the terror that is Detective Pikachu, a live-action movie where our favorite yellow rodent speaks actual words.
