Ryan Reynolds & a Light Skin Dude? (faints).
I can't help but feel that Ryan Reynolds NOT playing as Meowth was a tragically missed oppertunity. I actually think the non gen 1 mon's look better and more natural overall from what we've seen so far (e.g. Morelull, Greninja) but overall I'm still unsure what to think of this, except hope.
So you literally wanted the trailer to tell you the plot to a mystery? I'd bet that what Tim's father was investigating and why it almost gets him killed is part of the mystery. Reveal too much plot in the trailer, then there might not be much of a point to the movie if you know everything the first time around.The one thing I didn't like about the trailer was how they spend so much time on establishing that only Tim can understand Pikachu. We can totally get the point without spending 33 seconds on it. I'd rather they spend a bit more time on the actual plot of the movie, i.e. his father's disappearance. I know cute Pikachu bring people to the theater, but this is a detective movie so it should have a bit of a suspense element to it, and their trailer doesn't really do much in that regard. What was his father investigating? Why would it (almost) get him killed? All we can see is him crawling out of a burning car and Tim / Pikachu being attacked by two Greninja and a Charizard. There's nothing about the actual plot of the story and we don't even get a glimpse of the primary antagonist.
Eh, the Pokemon in this movie are a little too close to the Uncanny Valley of designs. I think they tried too hard to make them look photorealistic so that they wouldn't stick so far out when compared to the humans.
However, because they went this route, I think they made things worse. Trying to make them look realistic just makes them even more cartoony than if it was a point-to-point transition from what they looked like in the games.
I think I'll be passing on this. But, I hope Ryan Reynolds acts better in this movie than he did in Green Lantern...
I think they did give Mr. Mime hair. If you zoom in on his head herehttps://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/com...ulders_are_literally/?st=JOF5IS92&sh=b4621e3a here, you can see very small hairs, almost like a bald spot.The thing that bugs me is how the went about doing this. It feels like they went the Pokken Tournament route and just retextured existing models, like for Charmander while redesigning Charizard but stayed on model with Mr. Mime. They could have at least gave it hair. I would care a lot more if the models were all redesigned but what I'm not sure was possible was how I missed Dodrio and Rufflet in the trailer.
Arvalis'es interpretaion of Mr. Mime takes on frog features which add natural details to the depth of changing such a humanoid based Pokémon which makes it work. Still, his work concentrates on focusing on their onset from a natural biological perspective which in turn is more realistic then the TMNT cartoon translated route they decided to keep with, a literal keeping together of the characters' cartoon physical accuracies.I am so ridiculously hyped. It's actually happening.
Seriously, I dont think anyone could make a CG Mr. Mime without it looking at least mildly unsettling.
